Olympians Knock out the Renegades in Style

The London Olympians took on the Bedfordshire Renegades in the BAFACL Division Two Quarter-final in September.

Despite Olympians LB Simon Pinchin’s concussive hit on kick-off the Berkshire Renegades literally ran away with the first quarter and twice pinned the London Olympians in their own half to force them to punt on two consecutive drives. It was the perfect start for the Renegades with #18 and #32 moving the ball well into Olympians territory before attempting a field goal, which was unsuccessful.

The next drive for the Renegades was equally commanding but ended with a punt. This however kept the Olympians pinned within their 20-yard line. The response from the Olympians included giving up an early sack and as such did not give the opposition any worries. The quarter ended with the Olympians having moved the chains for the first time in the game.
