May 6, 2018 - 2:30 pm

The first home game of the season was certainly a crowd pleaser as home fans watched the Warriors put up 7 touchdowns against the Jurassic Coast Raptors.

Despite their depleted numbers, the Raptors still made the trip to Llanharan with their players showing great commitment and character by playing right to the whistle.

Raptors QB, David Layleye found a receiver downfield late in the second quarter but the drive stalled before they could put points on the board.

Running back, Josh Hughes opened the scoring for the Warriors followed shortly by his backfield partner, Adam Hilton who ran in a touchdown.

With 45 seconds left in the first half, QB Dean Jackson found Max McNeill-Smith down the left-hand sideline for a 22-yard touchdown. Receiver Noah Schmitt, managed to snag a high pass from Jackson to secure the Warriors first two-point conversion of the afternoon making it 26-0 at halftime.

Max Ayoul stepped in to spell Jackson at QB and quickly found receiver Isaac Taylor for a 20-yard touchdown. Josh Hughes ran in the two-point conversion to bring the score up to 36-0.

The Warriors added another two touchdowns, a 40-yard run from Richie Bowen, and another from Hughes to finish his hattrick.

Defensive Back, Dan Dacey would have added an eighth touchdown after he took a punt return to 60-yards to the house, however, the play was called back for an illegal block.

The Warriors will have some time to prepare for their next game against the Worcestershire Black Knights on the 17th June.
