The Orangeville Outlaws started the 2016 gridiron season with a huge win over the TNT Express on Sunday, May 22, in Beeton.

It didn’t take long for the Outlaws to set the tone of the game.

After scoring the opening touchdown on a run by Lino DeVita, the Outlaws snagged an interception and returned the ball to the 20 to set up the next play. Devita got the second TD of the game.

Jeriah Valladares got the third O-ville TD before the quarter was over to give the Outlaws a 19-0 lead with three quarters still to go.

The Express took advantage of a good field position late in the quarter to kick a field goal and get on the scoreboard.

After pushing through to get a first down in the second quarter, Aiden Oliver broke through the pack and ran for 60 yards for another O-ville TD.

DeVita got his third of the game on run to the left when the Outlaws were positioned at the 20 yard line.

Going into the second half, Spencer Payne returned the kick-off to the 38 yard line.

A quick pass from Luc St. Germain put the Outlaws in scoring position.

The Express got their only TD of the game in third quarter when a player broke from the pack and sprinted for 70 yards to score.

The Outlaws managed to dominate the rest of the game and finished with an outstanding 50-10 win over the Express.

It was a good start for the Express JVs who have been in practice for several months beginning with their indoor training sessions before moving to outdoor practice at the Agricultural Centre.

All in all it was a good day for the Outlaws Club.

The other opening season game for the Club was the Bantam division who also were up against the Express for their first one of the season.

In that game, the Outlaws finished with a 65-18 win.

The Outlaws will have two road games before hosting the Camebridge Lions for thier opener at Westside Secondary School in Orangeville on Sunday, June 12.

The kick-off for that game is scheduled 3:00 p.m.
