The Orangeville Outlaws Peewee division squad put up a good fight but couldn't shut down a strong Ajax Pickering offence during Sunday's (June 8) Ontario Minor Football League game on the gridiron at Orangeville District Secondary School.
The Outlaws opened the scoring in the first quarter on a touchdown from Mitchell Price to lead 6-0 in the early going, but that's all scoring the Peewees could do for the day.
The Dolphins responded with a sweep to the right that scored and followed up with a successful convert to take a one point lead.
Orangeville's Liam Secord caught a nice pass from QB Nathan Falconi but the Outlaws were held at mid field and had to give up the ball when they couldn't make any ground.
Pickering went to the throwing game and completed a long pass that made it a 13-6 game.
The Outlaws put up a solid defence including a huge hit by Roy Van Der Veen that dropped the Dolphins runner for a loss of yards. That was followed up by some good stops by Tyler Simpson, Alexander Horvath, and Brendan Beeching, on the defensive line.
With another Dolphins TD late in the fourth quarter, the teams returned for the second half with Ajax Pickering leading 19-6.
The lead got bigger when the Dolphins landed on the five yard line then made the pass into the end zone to score.
The Outlaws found themselves in trouble when they couldn't fight their way out of their end and were forced to punt.
Back on offence, the Ajax Pickering squad again went for the throwing game with the first pass incomplete when O-ville's Aiden Murray made the move and knocked down the pass in the air.
From there, the visitors managed to score three more - all on running plays to end the game 45-6.
It was the second loss for the Orangeville Peewees.
The Peewee squad can redeem the loss when they return to the field at ODSS this Sunday, June 15, to host the York Simcoe Bucs.
The kick off is scheduled for 11:00 a.m.
The Outlaws Atom division team travelled to Ajax Pickering on Saturday, June 7, to face the Dolphins in a morning game at Kinsmen Park.
O-ville notched a single touchdown but had to settle for a 46-6 loss to the hometown team. The Atoms are still looking for their first win this season.
The Outlaws Atoms will return to Orangeville on Sunday, June 15, to host the Toronto Green Jets at Orangeville District Secondary School.
The kick-off is scheduled for 9:30 a.m.
