Denver 3 at Philadelphia 6


1983 Week 10 - Sunday, May 8, 1983
Denver Gold(4-5) at Philadelphia Stars(8-1)(-6)
Attendance: 14,306, TV: ABC

PHILADELPHIA(AP)- The Philadelphia Stars, topping the new league with a 9-1 record, had to rely on David Trout's strong right foot to squeeze out a 6-3 triumph over the Denver Gold.

Trout converted field goals of 53 -- the longest of his career -- and 18 yards for the Stars, sending Denver to its sixth defeat in 10 games. The Gold had an opportunity to tie the game with 2:07 remaining after driving to the Stars' 6-yard line. However, Brian Speelman, who hit on a 23-yarder in the second quarter, never got the 23-yard field goal attempt off because the ball was snapped wide to the right of holder Ken Johnson and Philadelphia recovered the ball.
