Round 2 Round Up

Week 2

The Croydon Rangers have moved to 2-0 on their 2015 season with a 58-0 win over the Melbourne University Royals.

The Rangers’ defence was able to hold off every drive the Royals threw at them, with Michael Davern, Liam Fordham, Foo Yi Lee and Rhys Simpson stopping three drives with interceptions.

Jack Plunkett played a fantastic game at wide receiver catching several huge throws, but ultimately not rewarded with a touchdown. Josh Petracca picked up the first Ranger touchdown with a fumble recovery on the one yard line. Jordan Beck would strike next, finding a hole and exploiting it. He would score from 52 yards out. Ian Box would score on the drive, making a catch deep in coverage. Jordan Beck would score his second breaking free for a 78 yard touchdown. Ian Box would score on the next drive picking up his second touchdown for the day. Todd Dawson would manage to squeak by three defenders for his first touchdown, with Lucas Huysmans scoring on the next drive. The final drive would result in Quarterback Jon Johnston scoring from 4 yards out.
