Week 5 of the 2012 Gridiron Victoria season!
Kicking things off Saturday morning saw the Vic Bowl rematch with the Bay City Buccaneers travelling to Croydon to take on the Rangers. The Rangers flew out of the blocks early with a couple of quick touchdowns before the Buccaneers steadied with a long scoring drive and a pick-six to tie it at 14 at half time. In the second half the Buccs overpowered the Rangers, getting the win 31-21.
On Sunday at Monash University Clayton the morning game saw the Monash Barbarians hosting the Melbourne Uni Royals. In a tough, entertaining contest the Royals took until late in the 3rd quarter to break out a big play and pull clear of a determined Barbarians outfit and win 26-14.
In the afternoon game the Monash Warriors faced the Berwick Miners. Another close match until the Warriors proved too strong and powered to an 18-0 win and remain undefeated atop the standings.
