The Red Dragons have had a roller coaster of a first half to the season, sitting at 5-4 is not where Coach Davis thought his team would be. But, behind the division leading Voyagers and tied with the Pioneers and River Hogs, the division is wide open for the taking. Now is the time for the Red Dragons to stand up and fight.
With only 2 divisional games remaining (Both against the River Hogs) the Red Dragons know the best chance to make the playoffs will be to win the division which almost requires to win out. Before they can even think about that they must focus on what's standing in front of them in the pesky Toronto Huskies. This team is led by ultimate field general in Brady Hutson (who just became the RFL all-time passing leader), he knows to how to manage the game and getting the ball to his playmakers all over the field in Guyton, Maxwell and Streets. The Red Dragons as always will rely on their defense to do what they do but in order for them to dominate this game as Coach Davis would like to see, it starts with trying to stop the elusive Corey Leonidas and the Huskies rushing attack.
The last time we saw the Red Dragons a shootout was on our hands, or should we say a stampede as the Aviators Kingston Kenny ran for 143 yards 3 TDs on 25 carries (DJ Scott 21 carries 121 yards 1 TD. With Raymond still out, Corp hobbling and inexperienced young guys taking the field, Leonidas hopes to replicate Kennys performance. The Red Dragons have other plans and know to get back to where they want to be, stopping the run is step #1.
