The Baltimore Charm recovered from a mistake-filled first half with a furious second half comeback to nip the Cleveland Crush 20-19 Friday night in Cleveland, Ohio. A late TD pass plus a successful two-point conversion gave the Charm their first lead of the game. The victory was finally secured when Charlie Jackson picked off the Crush's fourth down desperation pass and then ran out the clock on the next play to seal the win.

Once again, Charm WR Kyle DeHaven proved she is among the best players in the LFL as she caught two TD passes from QB Stacy Moon and had a fumble recovery on defense. DeHaven almost never had the chance to be part of the win after tearing her triceps muscle in the first half, leaving her second half return in doubt. However, a measly torn muscle would not deter DeHaven from her heroic effort and her teammates rallied along with her to complete the comeback win.

Moon's third and final TD pass to reserve QB Morgan Spencer put Baltimore in position for DeHaven's two-point conversion and the Charm's first lead of the game and the difference in the win. After mistake-filled first half when the Charm drove down the field on three straight possessions only to either turn the ball over on downs or via bad turnovers. The Cleveland Crush capitalized on them with a relentless running game for the first score and then a length of the field TD off an interception return at the end of the first half to take a 13-0 lead into halftime.

Charm head coach Rick Reeder did not panic, imploring his team to eliminate the turnovers and play smart in a calm yet forceful halftime speech. Obviously, his players listened to his instructions as they dominated the second half on offense and defense, turning what was beginning to look like a heartbreaking loss into a thrilling victory. With the win, the Charm remain in the playoff hunt and after games on consecutive weeks, they now get a well-earned rest until their October 28th game at another expansion team, the Toronto Triumph.
