Senior Rangers Drop Second on the Trot in loss to Warriors, Slide to Third

Article updated

It was billed as the match of the round, the deepest of GV rivalries – Rangers vs Warriors. Coming off the league bye, the two teams were sitting second and third on the GV table, with the winner likely to hold the advantage on the home stretch to secure a top two finish.

Much like the first encounter in Week 2 of the season, the match commenced as a defensive struggle. Shane Hardy set the tone on the first play from scrimmage with a solo sack on the Warriors QB, and the defence recorded their first or two 3-and-out series of the day. The Rangers offense started in a similar manner, and four plays later, the Rangers were punting and the field position game had commenced.

2017 Men’s Standings

Rangers Keep Rolling to 3-1, Sit Second on GV Standings

Article updated

The Jetmaster Heat & Glo Croydon Rangers Hawthorn Hotel Men’s team returned to Ranger Field on Saturday, facing the 1-2 Melbourne University Royals in what had been hyped as “the match of the round” on the Gridiron DownUnder Division 1 Preview Story.

Sean Embery in full effect!

The weather forecast was bordering on apocalyptic with rain, hail, howling wind, low temperatures and “blizzards” all talked about. In the end, aside from the irregular gusts of wind, and the (bearable) low temperature, the weather was actually wonderful for an August football match.

The Rangers received the ball, and following a touchback on the opening kick-off, Jamie Stafford found Trevor Osborne seaming down the middle of the field, catching the pass about 15 yards beyond the line of scrimmage before sprint, high stepping and dodging any would be tacklers to take the ball to the house on the opening play from scrimmage. An early 6-0 lead to the Rangers with just a handful of seconds off the clock.
