Week 5 Recap

The Virginia Beach Sharks suffered their third loss in a row after the Honolulu Megalodons safely sealed the win 137.58-104.42, pushing the Sharks down 3 rankings to 8th place in the league. Quarterback Andy Dalton led Virginia Beach scoring with 269 passing yards and 34 rushing yards, while Honolulu’s quarterback Derek Carr trailed shortly behind racking in 317 passing yards and 13 rushing yards. Virginia Beach’s Eli Manning, on the other hand, continued on a downhill slope only scoring 10.06 points with more turnovers (5) than touchdowns (4). Virginia Beach running back C.J. Anderson is following suit, unable to score in the past two of three games this season and Honolulu’s Devonta Freeman took advantage after a nearly 10 point improvement from last week. With a more matched competition next week against the Orioles, the Sharks seek to break their losing streak.

Virginia Beach Sharks Season Notes

  • Running Back Jeremy Hill didn’t play the second half of the game on Sunday due to a shoulder issue, but has since reported that he is doing well and plans on continuing to practice and play.
  • Kicker Dan Bailey has had limited practice participation with back issues, but continued playing on Sunday.
  • Wide Receiver Tyler Lockett has been rumored to have a torn PCL, which may be an issue for the rest of the season.
  • Due to Hurricane Matthew, flooding and damage from trees falling continue to be an issue for Virginia Beach residents. Water restrictions have been recommended, which Sharks players will follow and additionally will help participate in disaster relief throughout the surrounding area.
  • Virginia Beach poll voters are evenly divided on the decision to spend local funds on a light rail from Norfolk to Town Center to decrease traffic congestion. Planning and polling is still in the works.
