Norwich Devils reached the half way point of the regular season with five wins out of five following a solid victory in Essex.

The Devils started the game in style, taking just three plays to open the scoring on their first possession. Quarterback Troy Schmidgall found receiver Ben Barker from 59 yards out and Barker then carried the ball all the way for a touchdown, with Ben Green kicking the extra point.

They had to wait until the second quarter before they added to their score. Running back Ian Burchett capped a drive with a six-yard scoring run and again Green added the extra point.

The Devils now have two weeks off before their next game against the East Midlands Saxons at Hewett School on Sunday, July 8. kick off at 2.30pm.
