The Blackjacks faced off against the undefeated Albany Empire on Saturday night.

Randy Hippeard and Blackjacks struck first with Hippeard finding Kendrick Ings for the five-yard touchdown. Ings would score again after a Albany score, taking an Empire kickoff all the way back for a touchdown. The first quarter came to an end with the Blackjacks leading 14-13.

Hippeard stuck with his hot receiver Ings to pick up career passing touchdown 400 on the following drive. The back and forth action would continue with Grady finding Terrance Moore for the touchdown. The first half would come to an end with the Blackjacks leading 28-27.

The first play of the fourth quarter resulted in a touchdown from Hippeard to Rashad Still to pull the Blackjacks to within six points, but a second half with the Blackjacks only scoring seven points wasn’t enough and the Empire would leave Atlantic City still undefeated with a score of 54-35.

The Blackjacks are back at home next Saturday at 3:30 as they take on the Baltimore Brigade.
