Despite an outstanding defensive effort, offensive failure and kicking game failure doomed the New Orleans Breakers in a 10-9 loss Saturday afternoon to the unbeaten Birmingham Stallions at Legion Field in Birmingham.

Brandon Aubrey narrowly made a 29-yard field goal with 1:48 to play in the game to provide the margin of victory. The kick barely sailed over the left upright. Aubrey had missed two field goals previously.

New Orleans got one final possession but managed the clock poorly and came up empty when Kyle Sloter was intercepted with six seconds left by Josh Shaw to clinch the win for Birmingham.

The interception was the third suffered by Sloter.

Taylor Bertolet missed an extra point and missed a pair of field goals, which was a critical factor in the defeat.

New Orleans trailed 7-0 when Bertolet connected on a 30-yard field goal to cut the deficit to 7-3 with 4:42 to play in the first half.

The Breakers took the second half kickoff and drove the length of the field, scoring on a 3-yard run by Anthony Jones to take a 9-7 lead with 12:48 to play in the third quarter but Bertolet missed the extra point.

Keith Washington had an interception for the Breakers.

The victory clinched the South Division championship for the Stallions, now 8-0 while New Orleans fell to 5-3 with its second loss to Birmingham this season. The Stallions defeated the Breakers 22-13 on April 30.
