Silverbacks Tame Lions


A rare Sunday afternoon game saw the Silverbacks play host to new division rivals the Lapeer County (Michigan) Lions at TD Waterhouse stadium.

London jumped out to an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter before the Lions would score their first points of the game on a qb sneak from the 1yard line. A blocked extra point kept the Silverbacks ahead by 8 while two more offensive touchdowns and a 2nd quarter goal line stand as time wore out in the first half helped ensure the Lions would not get any closer. The second half saw more of the same as the Backs would cruise to a 42-6 final score." to the previous email following the line, "the Lions would not get any closer.

The Silverbacks are now sitting atop their division at 3-0 outscoring their opponents by an incredible combined score of 108-13!

Next week London will be on the road for an out of division game vs. the Rochester (NY) Renegades Saturday, August 9 before returning home August 16.
