The Los Angeles Wildcats (1-2) came into Week 3 searching for an identity on both sides of the ball.
They found it on offense with the help of “Mr. Excitement”: running back Martez Carter. Pressed into duty due to Elijah Hood being inactive, the quick carrier scored three touchdowns — with several backflips included — and compiled 75 offensive yards during the 39-9 victory over the DC Defenders (2-1) in Week 3.
LA marked its first win during its second straight outing with Josh Johnson at quarterback — he went 18-for-25 with 278 yards, three touchdowns, and a sterling 148 rating — and head coach Winston Moss calling the defensive plays.
DC mustered just 90 net passing yards and went 2-for-13 on third downs. The Wildcats’ defense recorded five takeaways, including four interceptions of Defenders quarterback Cardale Jones.
