This week both teams ventured down the Princess Freeway to Corio.
In the morning, the division 2 Rangers2 faced the home town Bay City Buccaneers and put in a valiant effort to restrict the Buccs to only 38 points.
In the afternoon, the division 1 Rangers encountered the division 2 leading Northern Raiders and celebrated Steve Churchill and Richie Garraway’s 150th games with a comprehensive 53-0 victory.
Churchy finished with 3 touchdowns, Richie helped himself to a rushing touchdown, Neale Oliver also had two receiving touchdowns and Nathan Pasco rushed for a score as well. Ian Box completed the rout, returning a punt 80 yards to the house behind a massive block by Nick Johnston down the Rangers sideline.
Next week we do it all again in Geelong, with the Rangers playing the Buccs in what will effectively book a place in the Vic Bowl for the winner at 10:30am, whilst in the afternoon the Rangers2 face the Monash Barbarians.
The Croydon Rangers are participating in the Green House Games from 25th July, over 8 weeks as part of a new initiative from Sustainability Victoria to encourage households to take proactive steps towards reducing their carbon footprint.
