2016 Week 3 Juniors & Women’s Mixed Results

Article updated

Ranger women move to 2-0

A mixed result for the Croydon Rangers in round 3 Gridiron Victoria action last weekend.

The Under 19’s squad, fresh from a pair of solid performances compiling a draw and victory the first two weeks went up against the reigning champion Melbourne Uni.

A see-sawing struggle approached half time with only a score in it before Quarterback Tom Veale completed a deep pass to Callum Thompson for the touchdown. The Rangers completed the scoring play one man short on the field and went to the main break trailing 6-8.

An avalanche of injuries ravaged Croydon in the 3rd term as Melbourne Uni took advantage and started piling on the score. Such was the extent of the injuries that Conor Merrigan Turner played both ways all day and even saw offensive lineman Ben Guscott at defensive back.

The young Rangers couldn’t keep up, falling to the champs 44-6 to sit on the cusp of the playoffs at 1-1-1.

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

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.
