Desperados quarterback Clint Dolezel completed 20 of 41 passes for 285 yards and five touchdowns. He threw one interception.
In the third quarter, Dolezel fired a 46-yard scoring pass to Willis Marshall for the quarterback's 800th arena league touchdown pass.
Juston Wood filled in at quarterback after Graziani was hurt. Wood completed 18 of 37 passes for 213 yards and five touchdowns, but he threw three interceptions.
