The Myers Riders may want to add a few pointers from Miss Manners to their playbook after they did their up.m.ost to ruin the Mews Orleans Bengals homecoming celebrations on Saturday.

Playing under a bright blue sky in what can only be described as perfect conditions, the Bengals were hoping to steal a game or two from the Riders, but the perennial West Division powerhouse had other plans.

The tone was set very early on in the day as the Riders mosquito squad was able to totally dominate the Bengals in posting a 36-0 win.

The situation went from bad to worse in the tyke match-up which saw the Riders score virtually at will. Unlike their mosquito clubmates, however, the Bengal tykes were at least able to register a touchdown despite giving up a season high 66 points.

The closest game of the day was provided by the Bengals peewee squad which was playing their third top flight opponent in the past four weeks.

After losing their season opener to the Gloucester South Raiders on the final play of the game, the Bengals got whalloped 50-26 by the first place Cumberland Panthers coming off a bye week.

The Bengals’ defence was much improved against the Riders, limiting them to just 23 points. Unfortunately their offence was only able to score 14 points as their record fell to 0-3.

Coming off a hard-fought 9-9 tie against the Cumberland Panthers last weekend, the Bengals bantam team knew they were going to be in tough against a Riders squad that had won their first two games of the season with relative ease. As it turned out, the Bengals' concern was warranted as the Riders easily won 41-7.

The Bengals tyke team will be looking to get in the win column this weekend when they take on the Bell Warriors who will also be looking for their first win.

Unfortunately, things won’t get much easier for the Bengals’ other three teams which are going up against a trio of Bell Warrior teams with a combined record of 9-3.
