From staff reports

LOVELAND, Colo. – Charles Dowdell threw for 200 yards with seven touchdowns, Devonn Brown was on the receiving end of four of them, and the Spokane Empire crushed the Colorado Crush 70-37 on Friday in Indoor Football League action.

Spokane (3-1, 2-0 Intense Conference) trailed early – the Crush (0-4, 0-4) scored on their first possession on an Erick Brundidge 7-yard pass from Sean Goldridch.

The Empire proceeded to score four straight touchdowns. Mulko Kalokoh pounded one in from 2 yards out, then a 25-yard pass from Dowdell to Brown just before the end of the first quarter put Spokane up 13-7 at the break.

Dowdell connected with Samuel Charles to make it 21-7 and Kalokoh gathered a 3-yard scoring toss for a 28-7 lead.

Colorado stemmed the tide with a 48-yard field goal by Spencer Groner with 50 seconds left in the half, but Spokane picked right back up where it left off, and Dowdell found Brown from 1 yard out to go up 35-10 at intermission.

The teams traded two touchdowns apiece in the third quarter. Dowdell hit Brown again with a 4-yard pass and Charles on a 13-yard toss for his second TD catch.

Brown’s fourth TD reception, a 2-yard catch at the start of the fourth, made it 56-23. Brown finished with eight catches for 75 yards.
