Ice Storm beat Ravens

Staff and Wire Reports

The Vermont Ravens wrapped up its pre-season Saturday, falling to the Vermont Ice Storm, 36-2.

"Good job last night even though the score doesn't reflect the effort. Our offense performed very well until we got to the goal line. Three times inside the five without scoring is rough, but we kept our composure and worked hard," noted coach Mike Salmon. "We had 167 yards on the ground at a 5.5 avg. We threw the ball reasonably well going 9-19 for 74 yards. 240 plus yards on offense. The next step is to actually score."

Salmon was pleased with the overall effort of his defense, despite a flat start.

"We settled down on defense after a horrible start to play three strong quarters against a well-oiled machine on offense. Brad Ruderman of the Ice Storm is the MVP of the Empire Football League for a reason and their receiving corps is second to none, so that was a great test for our secondary and backers. We learned a lot from this game and this can only help us. Also our d-line did very well getting pressure and flushing Rudy back there."

The time for a regular season game against a single A opponent is coming up on July 19, where the Ravens will face the Central Vermont Rampage in Manchester Center.
