Silverbacks get first win on the road
Saturday night the Silverbacks went on the road to kick off their season at the TriCity Titans of Kitchener-Waterloo in North American Football League (NAFL) action and came away with a 15-12 victory.
This would be the first ever game for the Titans, an off-shoot of the Silverbacks and had the expected intensity when brothers take the field for bragging rights.
Stacked with talent the 'Backs entered this game looking to solidify their starting line-up so employed a variety of players throughout the game with the teams two touchdowns coming off passes from two different quarterbacks. The first from Luke Zetazate (aka Zman) to Londoner Sean Dutton and the second from Bruce Jones to Londoner Mo Chams.
On defense London came out firing in their trademark style of hard hitting, aggressive play with a bevy of explosive hits 4 force turnovers (3 ints and 1 fumble) and a number of sacks to keep the Titans offense under 125 total offense.
Next up for the Silverbacks will be their home opener on July 21 7pm as the team brings football back to historic Labatt Park as they play host to the Ohio Wolfpack (NAFL).
