It was a tough four quarters when the Orangeville Outlaws Varsity team went to Beeton to play the TNT Express in the first game of the season on Sunday, May 29.

The game was a solid defensive effort for both teams that kept the score low and didn’t allow for a whole lot of movement on the field.

The first pass interception of the game came early in the first quarter when Orangeville’s Jaiden Corbett snagged the ball and ran to the Express 20 and place the Outlaws in good field position.

Back on defence, the Outlaws held tight and punted to pin the Express in their own end zone for a point.

Josh Van Amelsvoort followed up with a second interception.

On defence again the Outlaws again got the turn around by grabbing a TNT pass in the air.

The Outlaws were first to cross the goal when QB Fisher Brown threw to Sean Reiners who made it a 7-0 game.

Another Orangeville interception placed the ball back in the Outlaws hands when Brendan Annett grabbed the ball for the turn around.

The second half saw the Outlaws starting out deep in their own end on the 12 yard line. After failing to dig out of the hole they were forced to punt.

The Orangeville team dug in with good stops by Connor Worley and Robert Costa on the defensive line.

Late in the third quarter with the line of scrimmage at mid field, Kyle Tuohy broke through the TNT line to drop the Expess quarterback for a loss of yards.

The Express got on the scoreboard late in the quarter on a nice 40 yard field goal the gave them three points.

The Outlaws put out a late game effort driving deep into the TNT end.

They set up for the field goal to get some insurance points late in the game and Josh Van Amelsvoort placed the ball between the uprights for the points.

The final was an 11-3 win for the Outlaws.

The Outlaws Varsity team’s home opener will take place on Sunday, June 19, when they will host teh Cambridge Lions at Westside Secondary School in Orangeville.

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