Exiles Conquer Cardinals

Kent Exiles 66 - 0 Ipswich Cardinals


The Kent Exiles today overcame the remnants of Hurricane Bertha, and a spirited Ipswich Cardinals team, to emerge 66-0 victors in their penultimate game of the season. The Exiles are now 6-3 with one more game to play.

The offence was back to its brilliant best with over 300 yards' passing from Zac Ritchie, ably supported by an offensive line that allowed  no sacks and created the holes for the running backs to combine for over 100 yards.
The Exiles started strongly with touchdown passes of 29 and 4 yards from Ritchie to wideout Sam Johnson. The Defence contributed with crucial stops on 3rd down and fumble forced by Defensive Lineman Russ Goodwin,  which was recovered by Anthony Copper.

The Exiles led 32-0 at half time,  with 2nd quarter scores from Running Back Rob Mitchell,  a 33 yard catch by Dean Leander and a 5 yard reception from James Bertram-Smith.

More followed in the 3rd quarter with scores from running backs Rob Mitchell and TK Chisango. The Exiles Defence turned the screw further with a 10 yard sack by Chris Mitchell and a 23 yard interception return by linebacker Neil Cooper.

The final quarter saw Johnson complete his "hat trick" with an 11 yard reception from Ritchie. Bertram-Smith added a second touchdown reception.

Neil Cooper completed the rout,  scampering 27 yards to return a punt, blocked by fellow linebacker Jon Gadbury, for a touchdown.

The Exiles complete the season with their final home game next Sunday,  17th August,  with the Cardinals again providing the opposition.
