MANIAX 27, Xtreme 12
Druckenmiller Throws Three TD Passes for Win

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Jim Druckenmiller threw three touchdown passes as the Memphis Maniax beat the Los Angeles Xtreme 27-12 on Sunday in the XFL.

The Maniax (4-5) beat the Western Division-leading Xtreme (6-3) for the second time this season. Los Angeles had won four straight following an 18-12 loss to Memphis on Feb. 25.

Druckenmiller connected with Beau Morgan on a 7-yard scoring pass to give Memphis a 20-6 early in the third quarter, and put the game out of reach with a 28-yard TD pass to Daryl Hobbs with just over 10 minutes to play.

Ketric Sanford ran for 82 yards for Memphis, including a 30-yard scoring run that gave Memphis a 13-0 lead. The Maniax opened the scoring on Druckenmiller's 22-yard TD pass to Charles Jordan following Corey Sawyer's interception.

Los Angeles' Saladin McCullough scored on a 14-yard run late in the third quarter, and Jose Cortez made two field goals.
