Silverbacks Set Record in Home Opener


The London Silverbacks played host to division rivals the Genesee County Patriots with the plan to make a statement in their debut and delivered on all phases setting a team record by posting a final score of 47-0.

A fired up defensive squad took the field first to set the tone and immediately forced a turnover setting the tone for the night. The offense made the most of it by scoring on a pass to Freddie Pompey en route to a 35-0 first half. The second half featured a running clock and the team getting a chance to have a "full squad" practice by putting in many of the backups.

The Silverbacks now prepare to go on the road to face their next division opponent July 26 before returning home for their sole Sunday game, August 3 1pm at TD Waterhouse.
