PORTLAND- The Maine Mammoths (2-8) host the Carolina Cobras (7-3) in Week 13 in what will be the teams’ second and final time facing each other. The Mammoths were looking to pick up a hot streak, as they defeated the Lehigh Valley Steelhawks (0-9) two weeks ago, but that was abruptly put to an end as the Jacksonville Sharks (7-4) defeated the Mammoths 51-21.


The last time the Mammoths and Cobras played each other, Mammoths Quarterback Jonathan Bane threw 18-of-37 for 217 yards, five touchdowns, and two interceptions. His top receiver on the night was Edgar Poe Jr. with six receptions for 70 yards and two touchdowns. Shortly behind Poe Jr. was Derrick Macon with five catches for 79 yards and two touchdowns. Devin Wilson totaled five receptions for 57 yards and one touchdown. Those three receivers averaged over 10 yards per catch on the night.  Fullback Desmond Maxwell rushed the ball two times and got no yards, however, he caught the ball one time for seven yards.


In their victory against the Steelhawks two weeks ago, Jonathan Bane, for the Mammoths, tossed for 237 yards on 16 completions for five touchdowns and one interception, which was one of his best games in the season so far. Devin Wilson was the star of the show, racking up nine catches for 145 yards and all five touchdowns from Bane. Rob Brown caught five passes for 62 yards. Edgar Poe Jr. had one catch for 20 yards, and Devante Jenkins totaled one reception for 10 yards.


The Mammoths look stronger than what their record shows, but will they be able to prove that against the #2 Cobras this weekend?


Saturday's game will be shown on YouTube Live and will be posted on the team’s social media pages. That will provide all the information on how to watch the game live on your phone or your computer.


The next Mammoths game after this weekend is on Saturday, July 14, 2018, at 7:00 pm (ET) at the Cross-Insurance Arena as they host the number three Columbus Lions (6-3) for Halloween In July.
