​The Jacksonville Sharks went on the road Friday night in game two of the 2019 National Arena League Season. After Losing to the New York Streets in their opener last week, the Jacksonville Sharks defense played well with several dominating sacks of the Columbus quarterback as the the Sharks defense kept constant pressure on the Lions quarterback and dominated Columbus most of the night. The Sharks defensive back Seth Ellis made seven tackles to help lead the Sharks to victory. It was a hard hitting and aggressive game with several fights and scuffles after plays. Penalties o hurt the Lions at the Columbus Civic Center. With the exception of a couple of interceptions, Sharks quarterback Jonathan Bane ran the offense in a smooth and efficient manner. Bane had 18 completions for 178 yards and five touchdown passes as the magic and chemistry continued between Bane and wide receiver Devin Wilson. Wilson had six receptions for 67 yards and two touchdowns for the Sharks. Despite any mistakes by the offense, The Sharks Defense stood strong. Sharks kicker Brandon Behr had three deuces (kickoffs that go through the goalposts) playing the net well for the Sharks kickoff team. The Jacksonville Sharks are now one and one with the 48 to 24 win over the Columbus Lions who fall to zero and two on the young season.
