And then there were two

The Bossier-Shreveport Battle Wings currently have the dubious honor of being one only two af2 teams without a victory in 2006. The expansion Everett Hawks and the Wings play the Tulsa Talons and the Memphis Xplorers respectively this week, so they're likely to stay winless.

The local af2 club has now lost 11 consecutive games dating back to June 18, 2005 when they defeated Oklahoma City 54-46 in the CenturyTel Center.

The previously winless South Georgia Wildcats defeated 2005 ArenaCup champs Memphis 48-41 last week, so maybe there's hope for the Wings this week after all. But when you look at the stat that the Battle Wings have won only three road games since the start of the 2003 season, a stretch of 54 games, you realize they may need more than hope.
