OVFL:  Varsity Toronto Thunder kept off the scoreboard by Myers Riders, junior varsity struggles

The varsity  Toronto Thunder continue to struggle with injuries as the team dropped another game.  This past weekend, the team suffered a shutout loss, 64-0 to the top ranked Myers Riders.

The Thunder lost their third straight game in a lopsided affair against the undefeated Myers Riders.

The Thunder has been crippled by a string of injuries, most notably to starting quarterback Brett Watson. The patchwork offense had their worst outing of the year, accounting for a dismal 36 yards of offense.

Defensively, the team struggled to contain one of the top offenses in the OVFL as the Riders posted 417 yards of total offense.

The team will head to Markham this Saturday in an attempt to salvage what has been a disappointing season thus far.

Meanwhile, the junior varsity Thunder lost 37-7 to a fierce Myers Riders team on Saturday.  As a result of the loss, the Thunder drop to 3-3 on the season.

The Thunder defense struggled in stopping a potent aerial attack, allowing 292 passing yards on the day.

The Thunder will travel to Markham this week to face the Raiders before hosting their crosstown rival  Metro Toronto Wildcats the following week.
