The Lawmen opened the 2006 season in a most irregular fashion. As both teams prepared to start the game at DVC, the first opening day home game for the Lawmen in three years, the National Anthem was sung and there seemed to be something missing... the officials (oddity #1).
After a one hour delay and the arrival of a few substitute officials who were able to show up in a moments notice thanks to the DVC field staff, the Lawmen were finally able to open a season at home (oddity #2). After everything was said and done, Head Coach Louie Rocha was able to get his first opening day victory in his three seasons. He made sure of this by having his team shut down the cross town rival East Bay Outlaws and by putting up 43 unanswered points. With his portrayal of "Cool Hand Luke," after the game he stated: "It's nice to get the win. The Outlaws played hard." The game, however, had a much different start. After the one hour delayed start, the Outlaws kick returner Ramon Wade took the opening Kickoff from his own ten yard line and broke it all the way to the Lawmen 35 before kicker Dave Asselin could force him out of bounds.
The Outlaws offense took the field and was able to drive down to the 5 yd line before the drive stalled and they were unable to convert on a 25yd field goal attempt. On the ensuing drive, the Lawmen offense was unable to move the ball allowing the Outlaws to again get great field position for the next drive but the Lawmen defense held tight forcing a punt. This time the Lawmen offensive unit was ready to roll and did just that by handing off to RB Jeremy Lindsey who broke runs of 8 and 12 yards to start the drive. QB Scott Burke completed the drive by scoring from 8 yards out on QB Sweep.
The quarterback's prowess ignited the Lawmen team to a higher level and while the Lawmen defense was able to generate 3 turnovers, the offense responded and converted all three into touchdowns. The Outlaws continued to play hard and gave the home team a tough game while demonstrating what true sportsmanship and the love of football is all about. Even with just under a minute left in the game, the Outlaws were inside the red zone and threatening to score forcing the Lawmen to take a timeout and restructure the defensive calls to preserve the golden goose egg.
