Firefighters Come Out Swinging to Take Guns ‘N’ Hoses 5

(911 Gives Hope Facebook)

After a 11-3 lost at Guns ‘N’ Hoses IV, the “Hoses” pulled no punches (pun completely intended) in a dominating win over the “Guns” Saturday night inside The Ford Center that gives them a 3-2 advantage in the overall series.

With 15 total fights on the card, the first team to take eight of those fights would leave the stadium as the Guns ‘N’ Hoses champions. The firefighters looked to put it away early, taking the first seven fights of the night in front of a record crowd of 7,200.

Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Deputy, Brandon “Bam Bam” Rolley, offered a slight glimmer of hope for the Guns by defeating Evansville firefighter, Anthony Turi in the eighth bout just before intermission. But that hope was short lived as Madisonville, KY firefighter, Scott Lovan, defeated Boonville Police Officer, Jacob Rosenmeier in bout number nine to officially give the firefighters the belt on their way to an 11-4 victory.

However, the night was not without it’s share of surprises as two formerly undefeated fighters, firemen Rob “Butterbean” Ralph, and Mike Doran got their first taste of defeat. Ralph lost at the hands of EPD officer Rob Pylant, while Vanderburgh County Sheriff’s Deputy Chris Roe scored the win over Doran.

Overall, it was a great night of fights. The crowed inside The Ford Center was electric, evenly divided down the middle between the Guns fans and the Hoses fans with each side rising to their feet when they’re guy landed a few good shots. And while congratulations a certainly in order for the firefighters, the real winner of the night was 911 Gives Hope. The joint charity between local police officers and firefighters created by EPD officer and 911 Gives Hope Board Member, Pat Pherneton whose daughter Mickey suffers from Prader-Willi Syndrome. The group also donates money throughout the year to 42 different charities benefiting children with disabilities.
