Your Vermont Ravens are set to open their 10th season as a organization this coming Sunday. Kick-off is 2:00PM at Norwich University's Sabine Field, in Northfield, VT.
Head Coach Pete Everett's squad will be taking on last years league runner-up, the Northern Berkshire Kings from Pittsfield, Ma. The Kings defeated the Ravens in the semi-finals to end what was an excellent year for Vermont. The Ravens claimed the Southwestern Division title and won their opening play-off game before being defeated by the Kings. Their final season record of 8-2 stands out as the best ever as a team.
This season the team has moved up a level to the New England Football League's AA Division. The schedule has been increased to 10 games and the competition is steep as the team will play many well established teams from more populated areas of New England.
All in all 2016 looks to be an interesting one for the organization. Playing at Norwich University's Sabine Field, in Northfield, Vermont again this season gives the team one of the nicest venue's in the league and one the fans love to watch their team compete on.
The gates open an hour and half before the game and the team will provide a full concession stand operated by the Lady Ravens.
Admission is adults = $7 and children 12 and under = FREE.
