Ranger Colts battle all day against league leading Predators

Article updated

The Jetmaster Heat & Glo Croydon Rangers Stuart Thompson Landscapes Colts headed for Berwick in GV’s Week 3 action.

Sitting with a 1-1 record and missing a number of players through injury the Croydon Rangers knew they were going to have their hands full against the league leading South Eastern Predators; a team that had been dominating their opposition in the previous matches.

The first quarter saw a defensive struggle as the Rangers defence held the usually rampant Predators offence, whilst the Croydon Rangers worked the ball into good field position, yet failing to convert their opportunities; a theme that had carried over from the previous week. As the opening quarter drew to a close the Predators were able to capitalise on good field position and ran in the first touchdown of the day and converted the two point conversion.

Rangers Colts Play in Second Straight Thriller

Article updated

The Jetmaster Heat & Glo Croydon Rangers Stuart Thompson Landscapes Colts found themselves travelling to Melton in their second clash of the season against the Geelong Buccaneers. Both teams recorded opening wins in their first contest the previous week and the fantastic weather conditions that greeted the teams set the scene for what would be a grinding game of football.

The return of incumbent starting Quarterback Tom Veale was bitter sweet, with a number of exclusions at receiver through injury and other commitments. Regardless, the Rangers came to play, and after losing the toss were given the ball to start proceedings. The opening drive saw the combination of Tom Veale, Tom Taylor and James Dall drive deep into the Buccaneers territory.

The Wildcat offense proved yet again confusing, terrifying and stalling a bewildered defence. However a broken play on 4th and short saw the Rangers unable to capitalise on what had been a dominating drive. Turning the ball over on downs, the Rangers defence immediately went to work. Rising sophomore Declan O’Carroll on the defensive line, Jaxon Tiziani and rookie sensation middle linebacker Macleod “Mullet” Kayne all provided immense pressure forcing the Buccaneers to punt the ball on 4th down from their own endzone. The subsequent high snap, out the back of the endzone, saw the Rangers take the lead on a safety.
