When you have one team that put up 40 points in their previous week (Terrapins) coming up against a team that dominated on defence, scoring 12 points off turnovers alone (Reapers), there is bound to be a change in fortune for one team’s strengths.
Following on from a game which saw defense rule the day, you’d not be at fault for expecting more of the same from the opening game for expecting more of the same, especially when one team was sporting the League’s returning Defensive Player of the Year.
Sometimes, to open a season, the two teams playing in the first game are almost expected to set standards at a certain level, one which teams will beat as they settle into their grooves throughout the season.
So Week 1 is in the books with two very good games, each for very different reasons! One showcased strong defense, while the other showcased almost no defense at all and turned into a real shootout!
So it is finally here, our 2016 season begins on 19 June!
Good luck to everyone taking part this season and for those who aren’t playing, but are still interested, feel free to come down and watch. It’s free after all!
