Junior Rangers Week 1 – Draw vs Pakenham Silverbacks 14-14

Article updated

Rangers with the football

Week 1 of the 2016 GV summer season kicked off last weekend with the Rangers junior team heading to Berwick on Sunday to play the Pakenham Silverbacks. A beautiful day was on hand, perfect for football, and the guys were happy to have the early morning game before the temperature rose too far.

With the two teams finishing 3rd (Rangers) and 4th (Pakenham) in the recently completed 2015 season, recent form suggested that this game would be tight, with both teams looking to set a positive tone from week 1.

The game started scrappy on offense for the Rangers, with a fumble following the second play from scrimmage after taking the opening kick-off. With good field position, the Silverbacks quickly threatened, but a solid red zone defensive stance turned the ball back to the Rangers. The first quarter continued a back and forth with both teams defenses standing up on big fourth downs.
