Raiders Travel South For Pre-Season Scrimmage vs Gladiators

The Raiders have recently returned from their annual pre-season scrimmage vs the Gladiators and gave both teams the chance to prepare for their respective 2013 seasons.

The Team – as always – stayed in a caravan park in Kiama for the duration of the 2-day camp and faced the WVAFC Gladiators from the ACT Gridiron league.

On Day 1, both teams met for the full contact scrimmage with outstanding weather. Special mentions to Offensive players TE Adriel Lage, QB Elliot Rovedi and WR Kenny Marcieira who scored 1 or more TDs. On Defense, the Line caused alot of havoc – tackling the runner for a loss on several plays and providing alot of pressure in pass situations. Post scrimmage, both teams celebrated a great day of football with BBQ and beer.

On Day 2, the team met for a Special Teams meeting before heading home.

A great weekend had by all! Special Thanks to the Gladiators for their help in our preparation for the 2013 season and see you next year! Go Green!
