LONDON (AP) _ Tony Vinson scored two touchdowns Sunday as the London Monarchs won at home for the first time this season, 27-7 over the Frankfurt Galaxy in the World League of American Football.

The Monarchs led 20-0 in the first half, but quarterback Steve Pelluer ran two yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter for the Galaxy, who were shut out in their previous game.

The Monarchs improved to 2-4. The Galaxy, which opened the season with four victories, dropped to 4-2.

Vinson scored on a 46-yard run in the second quarter and a 4-yard run with 45 seconds left in the game. Vinson, of the Atlanta Falcons, and Pelluer, of the Dallas Cowboys, are among the NFL players allocated to WLAF clubs for the season.
