Cowboys drop three straight

OVFL: Cowboys struggle once again in their week three match-up against the Lions. 

The Cowboys have struggled offensively this season, averaging only 183 yards per game – an area that needs to be improved on if they want to challenge their opponents.

After dropping their first two games with a combined score of 59-7, the Cowboys were determined to put up a more competitive effort against the 1-1 Cambridge Lions. The Lions have been over-achievers thus far, by beating a heavily favourite Sabercats team in week one. On offense, the Lions have been able to move the ball through the air and on the ground quite effectively, averaging 360 yards per game.

This game would prove to be a complete mismatch for the Cowboys, which lead to lopsided score. The Cowboys allowed a two pairs of touchdowns on the ground and through the air. The Lions would also capitalize on their field position in the red-zone by adding four field goals.

Halton was once again victim to a poor offensive display, scoring only one touchdown by Antoine Saddler. Cowboys Head Coach Jon Kronemeyer was unimpressed by his team effort.

“The Lions are experienced but I feel we could have played them tougher for sure,” said Kronmeyer.  “We didn’t compete the way that I had hoped.”

The final score of the game was 47-6 in favour of the Lions, making it three straight losses for the Cowboys to start the season. Now Halton has been outscored 106-13, after yet again poor performance.

“On Defense we will be making some changes, nothing dramatic but changes that need to happen,” said Kronemeyer.

Next week will be the battle of the winless teams, when the Cowboys face the Pickering Dolphins this Saturday at Bishop Redding High School in Milton – game time is at 7pm. This might be the turning point for the Cowboys and could allow them to get their first taste of victory.
