Week 6 – 1983: Oakland Invaders vs Boston Breakers w/Bonus Coverage



1983 Week 6 – Sunday, April 10, 1983
Attendance: 7,984
TV: ABC

[NOTE: If you want to skip all the pregame analysis forward the video to the 6:00 minute mark where kickoff starts.

Also since this game was a blowout the network ABC with a few minutes left switched to the Birmingham vs Chicago game for bonus coverage. Unfortunately the video I received didn’t have all of the last minutes of the game]

Ted Torosion rambled for two touchdowns through the wind and rain after an interception and fumble recovery by Oakland as the Invaders snapped the Boston Breakers’ four-game winning streak.

Richard Crump put the Breakers, 4-2, ahead 7-0 early in the second quarter with a 1-yard plunge before Torosion got his first touchdown on a 2-yard run with 1:45 left in the period. Kevin Shea’s extra point attempt was blocked, leaving Boston ahead 7-6.

Torosion’s touchdown climaxed an 80-yard march started by Derrick Martin’s interception in the end zone of Johnnie Walton’s pass.

Crump’s fumble on Boston’s first play after the kickoff was recovered by Matt Elisara at the Boston 22-yard line. Five plays later Shea connected on a 28-yard field goal to give Oakland, 3-3, the lead for good, 9-7, as time ran out in the first half.

QB Fred Besana throws his first interception in nearly a month, setting a USFL-record for most consecutive passes without a pick (135 attempts). The miscue proves to be of little consequence as the Invaders roll over the Boston Breakers, 26-7, at Nickerson Field.

  • They could renew the league with 8 original franchises that wouldn't mess with NFL teams:
    Birmingham Stallions
    Memphis Showboats
    New Jersey Generals
    Oakland Invaders
    Oklahoma Outlaws
    Orlando Renegades
    Portland Breakers
    San Antonio Gunslingers

  • I really like those helmets for the Boston Breakers. I did like this team, and they came along when breakdancing was becoming popular, so some wondered exactly if the nickname was related. The Breakers moved to New Orleans for the 1984 season and started 5-0 and generated some excitement because the Saints had not had a really good season yet. Loved the Irene Cara theme song "What a Feeling" for the 1984 New Orleans Breakers.

  • Not a big deal but how come they don't play in Foxboro. You know they got some football teams they don't really play in the city they are named like the 49ers, giants/jets, redskins, cowboys, bills and dolphins. Just curious

  • I went to a few Breakers games in '83. Including the home opener. They gave away free Breakers towels. The venue was too small for a pro football team. The Patriots wouldn't let them use Foxborough Stadium. They couldn't get Harvard stadium or BC's field either. Since they played in the spring, Fenway Park was off limits. But, the games were pretty damn good. WAY better than that joke XFL league that Vince McMahon ran. That was hardly better than high school football.
