Saturday, August 13th

It was a tough start for the Atom Black Raiders vs the Fort Garry Lions today.
For the first quarter they struggled to get out of their own end but neither team was able to score. However the Lions put together a drive at the end of the quarter which resulted in a touchdown at the beginning of the second quarter. The Lions were able to find the end zone 2 more times to make it 22-0 at the half.
The second half greatly improved, the Lions were only able to get one touchdown early on in the third quarter and the Raiders offence was starting to click and finding ways to gain yards, although still not resulting in any scores. In the 4th quarter the defence did an excellent job of stopping the Lions in the the red zone, with a fumble recovery and twice standing them up inside the 10 with several key tackles, 3 of which were quarterback sacks that resulted in significant loss of yards.
The final score was Lions 29, Raiders 0.
