Game Preview – Week 5

Clipboard...Jesus?

Standing second in the MEC Central Division with a record of 7-5-0, The Crows head into the final regular season gameday looking to guarantee themselves some playoff football.

Week 5 – Conference Games
Saturday 8th July

 

The Crows were unlucky not to leave Gameday 4 with a 3-0 record despite losing starting QB Talha Javed to injury days before.  Two weeks on, they head into Gameday 5 full of optimism and excitement.

NEWCASTLE BLACKHAWKS 11-0-0

(2016 record: 14-2-0)

The first matchup of the day for The Crows sees them play the currently undefeated Newcastle Blackhawks. The big game of the day, The Crows will be look for a similar performance to the fixture last year, where the Ron Burgun-D didn’t concede a single point!

Both teams were in a similar situation going into the 2016 fixture with Newcastle going into the game with a 7-0 record and looking unbeatable.

But, we all know how that game ended…Crows 25-6 Blackhawks.

NOTTINGHAM BEARS 2-9-0

(2016 record: 4-12-0)

The Crows face off against familiar foes Nottingham Bears in their second game of the day. They’ll be hoping to recreate last years score where The Crows came away 65-0 winners, in what was a more competitive game than the scoreline suggests.

Crows WR Greg Hollin will be looking to impress against his old team and grab himself a few touchdowns. Nottingham have developed some tricky plays and are constantly improving so will no doubt prove a fiercer challenge for The Crows this time round.

TAKEAWAYS

Critical gameday for The Crows this week, needing a win to secure playoff football ahead of Cheshire Cavaliers. The Crows defence will be looking to impress and improve on last seasons performances after conceding ZERO points against both of these teams last time round (Newcastles score came from a pick 6) and the offence will be looking for bigger scores than 2016.
