After a scary weather forecast that threatened opening day, we ended up with a great day for some football.
We knew the junior division would be solid and competitive this year and we were not dissapointed. With a lot of returning players, and a good group of newcomers, the action was worth watching.
The Colts changed their name to the Cardinals and got off on the right foot with a big victory against last year's Super Bowl champion Raiders. The 2013 Super Bowl runner up Bengals were beaten decisively by a dynamic Patriots team that looks like the team to beat after week one.
As always, opening day wouldn't be the same without at least one instant classic which we had with a close, hard fought, battle between the Cowboys and Ravens. The Ravens came away with the victory but the Cowboys showed they will be a team to reckon with this season.
The best part of the day for Junior is there were no injuries and no bad on field incidents. The boys and coaches showed good sportsmanship!!
Until next week.....
