Rangers win Vic Bowl XX

Croydon Rangers are the VIC BOWL XX Champions

The Croydon Rangers took on the Nunawading Warriors in Vic Bowl XX on Sunday. The Rangers did not only have to take on their opposition but the weather conditions as well, it rained on and off all day but this would not stop the Rangers. The Rangers wanted to put scoreboard pressure on the Warriors early to make them play catch up football. This was achieved thanks to a great run down the sideline for a 21 yard touchdown by Steve Churchill giving the Rangers a 7-0 lead early in the first quarter. The heavens opened up and the game became a defensive struggle for the rest of the half, the Rangers had one good drive but were unable to capitalise on the opportunity. The Rangers went into the half leading 7-0.

During the third quarter the Rangers offence went about extending their lead, after a fantastic offensive drive quarterback Mark Ursu found receiver Richard Garraway in the back of end zone for a 5 yard touchdown putting the Rangers up 13-0. Late in the third quater the Warriors were putting a threatening drive together, but this did not faze the Rangers defence they had two sacks and forced an incomplete pass to turn the ball back over to the Rangers offence. Thanks to the Rangers defence the offence took over and slamed the faint Warriors hopes shut, the Rangers drove the length of the field and Mark Ursu capped it off when he scored on a 3 yard run. The Rangers defence make sure of the shutout thanks to interceptions by Scott Snowball and Dan Wain to shut the Warriors out. The Rangers becoming the VIC BOWL XX champions running out victors 19-0.

Croydon Rangers are the RIDDELL BOWL Champions

The Croydon Rangers won the 2004 Riddell Bowl over the Bay City Buccaneers 28-24 in one of the best Riddell Bowl games ever.

The Rangers opened the scoring in the second quarter when quarterback Callum Dunsford hit fullback Pete Shugg in the flat who ran the remaining yards into the endzone. Tailback Ash Hopkinson scored for the Rangers soon after when he bounced an inside run to the sideline and raced 25 yards to the endzone, Dunsford hooked up with wide receiver Jake Witchelo for the 2pt conversion putting the Rangers up 14-0 with only seconds left in the half. Seconds was all the Buccaneers needed to find the endzone, with a long pass the Buccs found themselves down by only one score going into the half.

The Rangers wanted to extend their lead in the second half and this was helped by a 27 yard run up the middle by fullback Mark Doyle who in his final game as a Rangers junior broke three tackles on his way to then endzone. Hopkinson added on the 2pt conversion, which would later prove very important. In the next two buccaneer drives they would start to turn the game, They scored twice in short succession both game from long passes putting the score at 22-18. In the fourth quater the Rangers put together a long time consuming drive which was highlighted by a 2 yard Hopkinson run up the middle to give the Rangers a 10 point lead, this would mean the Buccaneers would need to score twice in the final minutes to win. The Rangers defence stepped up, the Buccs would score again but had used up almost all of the remaining time on the clock. The Rangers recovered the on side kick and then got two first downs to run out the clock.

Pete Shugg of the Croydon Rangers was named the Riddell Bowl MVP, for his great game on defence and offence helping the Rangers set up the win. The 2004 league awards were also announced after the Riddell Bowl, Darren Johnstone of the Rangers won the Line MVP, Ash Hopkinson won the offensive MVP award and Pete Shugg took out the league overall MVP
