The Southern Maine Raging Bulls improved to 2-0 on the season as they defeated the Merrimack Valley Pride (0-2) by a score of 42-6 this evening. The Raging Bulls were led by QB Alexis Colon who linked up with WR Mark Roberts on 3 TDs. Colon also punched 1 TD in from a yard away. RB Jon Wiechman had another big TD for the Bulls in a great effort, and back-up QB DeAndre Morton ran in a TD for SMRB. #SMRBFootball had another big day defensively, collecting a total of 6 sacks. DE Patrick Fagan collected his 2nd sack of the season, Ramon Toye collected 1.5 sacks, and Captain LB Bobby Nelson & Rookie DL Evan Hutchinson collected their first sacks of the season.
We felt we were ready to play Lowell because of our hard work and dedication what we did not account for was their strong grit or overwhelming speed and agility.
They are a strong and well led team both with their veterans and coaching staff.
Being up 14-0 with :04 on the clock until half we gave up a touchdown. The mood became serious as we knew they got the ball back first in the second half.
I challenged the men at half time to go out and represent themselves in a way that they would be proud. They answered the challenge scoring 3 times with 1 score coming from the defense. Our defense had issues but with the bend but do not break attitude they did not let a fast, strong and talented Lowell into the end zone.
Our team travels to face a young talented team in Lawrence this week. I have watched this team, the Pride, steadily get better and add talent and commitment to their squad. This should be a solid test to see how we play on the road.
