Juniors Week 1: Warriors shine through in Vicbowl Rematch

Week 1

Week 1 saw the Vicbowl match up between the Warriors and the current Champs, the Croydon Rangers.

A big defensive effort saw the Junior Warriors beat the defending champion Rangers 28-20. After a slow start the Warriors Offense started to come together well in the second half and they were able to show the dedication put in the preseason with a hard fought win and a game that will only help the confidence of the young group.

The crunch award went to rookie Morgan Smith for a dominating game at D-line, while game MVP went to veteran Riely Powlesland for a terrific game at linebacker including 3 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries.

A big congratulations also goes to Round 1 Game Day Captain Chris Gilliland! He was given the honour for his dedication in preseason preparations and it showed as he stepped up in his first game of Gridiron.

The team will be looking to build on that momentum against the Miners next weekend.
