Three games at Westside field

The Orangeville Outlaws hosted a Super Sunday of football action at Westside Secondary School in Orangeville on July 10, with three back to back games.

Bantam Division

The Orangeville Outlaws Bantam team had little difficulty pulling off a win over the Cambridge Lions during the first game of the day.

After dominating for the full four quarters, the Outlaws left the field with a 54-0 win over the visitors.

Brendon Barrow scored four of the Orangeville touchdowns.

Derek de Langley crossed the goal for two touchdowns.

Caleb Jackson scored one touchdown.

Aiden Murray and Graden Gradison both scored two point converts in the game.

“I think our team just pulled together and did the best that we could,” said Orangeville running back Brendon Barrow. “We didn’t try to run up the score or anything, we just played our game. Our game plan is to just come out and play our game. I think our strength today was defence. We didn’t let them get a first down once.”

The Outlaws Bantams will play their final regular season game this Sunday (July 9) when they travel to Beeton to take on the TNT Express.

Game time is 3:00 p.m.

Junior Varsity

The Outlaws Junior Varsity division hosted the Niagara Spears on the field at Westside Secondary School with a 1:00 p.m. start.

At the start of the second half the Outlaws were down by eight after Niagara scored a TD then followed up with a two point convert.

After making some good yards in the third quarter the Outlaws got into trouble when a fumble was recovered by Niagara and the Spears had a big push to the 25 yard line.

The Spears scored on a run to the left and followed up with a one point convert kick.

Getting back into action on a kick return by Ben Brakel, the Outlaws moved down field on a good run from Jeriah Valladares.

The Outlaw were back in scoring position in the fourth quarter when they returned a Niagara punt.

Valladares got the first O-ville TD of the game on a huge run with five minute left on the clock.

He followed up with a two point convert.

The Spears widened that gap late in the game with another touchdown with just under two minutes remaining.

A final push by the Outlaws closed things up when Valladares got his second TD of the game with 34 second left on the clock but there wasn’t enough time left for the Outlaws to make up the difference and they had to settle for a 22-14 loss.

“We played good but we weren’t at our best today,” said Outlaws defensive end Duane Henry. “We could have done better on both offence and defence. They got us on the run.”

The Outlaws JV team will play their final game of the regular season schedule on Sunday, July 24, when they host the North Bay Bulldogs at Westside.

Game time is 1:00 p.m.


The Outlaws Varsity team hosted the TNT Express is what turned out to be the lowest scoring game of the season.

When the final buzzer sounded to end the game, the Express left the field with a 1-0 win.

These two teams have had a tough time with each other this year.

The first time they met the Outlaw won 11-3. The second time the two team met up the Express won 10-0.

Sunday’s game saw both teams stuck at mid field for most of the first quarter.

The Outlaws got control of the ball in the second quarter when Dorian Best grabbed a TNT pass attempt for an interception then handed off to Josh Van Amelsvoort who gained a few yards.

Derick Acheson had a strong run on the next play but the Outlaws couldn’t break through the TNT line.

Back on defence, the O-ville line of Connor Worley, Kyle Tuohy, Eli Davin, Matt Langridge, and Tyler Marsh, put up a solid front to stop the TNT advance.

With a 0-0 score late in the game, both teams attempted field goals to get the edge but none were successful.

The only point in the game was scored in the fourth quarter when TNT attempted a third field goal that went wide, but caught the Outlaws in the end zone for a single point.

“It was a close battle and it was a fun game to play because it was so close,” said Outlaws quarterback Fisher Brown. “You’ve always got opportunities and you always have a chance to score and put yourself up. It’s nice to keep it close but it would be good if we could come out on top and win some games. On the field goals both the defences were getting in the backfield early and being able to stop these kicks. That’s usually quite a feat. To see it happen multiple times in one game is actually quite impressive. It was a good defensive battle over all.”

The Outlaws Varsity team have one more game left on the regular season schedule.

On Sunday, July 17, they will travel to Cambridge to take on the Lions at Jacob Hespeler High School.

The kick-off is scheduled for 1:00 p.m.
