Kirkcaldy Bulls repeat in Adult Flag

Written by Garry

The Kirkcaldy Bulls team is known to be a dominant force in adult flag football. It will therefore not surprise that they came out on top in the final game of Britbowl XXV.

Their opponents were a Woodham Warriors side that started the game well getting on the board first.

The Bulls got the ball to start the game and while they did manage to work their way down the field ended up turning over on downs. The Warriors then got the ball and managed to take it for six to take the lead. Following this neither side managed to get it going on their next drives but after that the Bulls were nigh on unstoppable. The side managed two touchdowns before the break and got the conversions both times as well. The score at the half saw the Bulls on top 14-6.

In the second half the Warriors came out scoring again and this time managed to convert. The game now was incredibly tight at 14-13. Again though the Bulls proved unstoppable as their next two drives went for touchdowns while the Warriors were turned on downs. 26-13 was now the score, the game was now beginning to get away from the Warriors. This made their interception on the Bulls next drive very important for their hopes. The pick drew a flag but the interception stayed on the board and allowed the Warriors another score. The conversion failed and left them 7 points down. Unfortunately a score on the next drive for the Bulls pushed the score out of reach as time was running out.

Final score 32-19. The Woodham Warriors proved competitive against the dominant Kirkcaldy Bulls and it was a strong match to close out the weekend.

Jets Junior Flag Win British Final

Written by Garry

Prior to watching the senior kitted team fall to the London Blitz in the National Title game for the second year running, the Coventry Jets’ Junior Flag team captured their own British Championship defeating the Blitz 32-24 at Worcester’s Sixways Stadium.

The jets twin quarterback threat of Tom Clancy and AJ Mepstead gave their opponents a headache with their contrasting styles. The elusive Clancy finding time for his receivers to get open, whilst the strong armed Mepstead would hook up deep with Clancy.

Eagles' Wings clipped by Warriors

Written by Garry

After nearly two months out of action from the regular season, the Leicester Eagles returned to the field on Sunday 25th July, taking the long travel up to County Durham to face both Woodham Warrior teams.

The Eagles took a strong squad, with head coach Alan O’Sullivan able to preside over a full strength defence of Chris Noon, Ed Waters, James Pimperton, Adam Brindley and Chris Brown. A slightly re-jigged offence saw returnee Martin Willder line up at centre, Chris Brown start at receiver along with Charlie Craggs and with starting tight end Mik Smith making his season debut, it gave new quarterback James Pimperton a strong set of targets to throw to. The absentees were Rich Manning (Achilles) Garry Crawford and Nathan Stevenson.

Jets Flag Rookies Shine

Written by Garry

Bethany Varney scored her first touchdown as Coventry’s policy of giving rookies plenty of game time has begun to pay dividends. Varney’s score was very significant for the fledging Jets junior flag team as now every single player has had their name on the score sheet this year. That same policy has seen rookie Tina Nguyen force herself into the starting line up and she justified her place with another determined performance, adding three more sacks and a safety to her record breaking season.

With such a young squad, it was always going to be an uphill struggle for the cadets, but there were certainly some positive signs for next year. Kordell Maby and Marc Peters look certain to develop into fine players and of course the league eagerly anticipates Meme McCook who will look to follow in the footsteps of older brother and senior team running back, Shadrach.
