Jets Flag Rookies Shine

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.

Jets Youth hit second loss

Adam Biggs and his Coventry Jets youth team fell to a second straight loss in their debut season. The Jets won their first ever competitive game at home to the Birmingham Bulls in a memorable game in early May but couldn’t repeat the trick on their travels suffering a 24-19 defeat, the first time the Bulls had beaten the Jets at any level.

The Jets travelled to Birmingham minus several key players. Both starting defensive ends; Ollie Ryan and Rueshelle Ferguson were absent alongside cornerbacks Liam Flinn and Danny Battley, linebackers Jack Fuller and Perry Hill, wide receiver Alex Preece and perhaps most tellingly Matt Gough. The hero of their first encounter, it was Gough’s touchdown saving tackle that capped the Jets memorable debut and in his absence Coventry found it difficult to sustain any first half momentum, trailing 8-3 at the break.

Disappointed Jets as Blitz Triumph again

The Coventry Jets came up short in their bid to regain the British American Football title, falling 34- 20 to the London Blitz. Three Lorne Sam touchdown passes and a stellar defensive effort weren’t effort to prevent the Blitz repeating as National Champions as turnovers and penalties proved to be Coventry’s downfall.

ourtney Pope chipped in a solid shift for the Jets, another two touchdown receptions were added to his league high tally of 12, Mark Cohen also scored, the 101st touchdown of his vaunted Jets career.

Coventry won the toss and decided to kick off, Alan Steel sending the ball down to the Blitz 20 where Aaron Percival collected the ball to set London up on their own 40. Clive Palumbo’s reception on a receiver screen converted a big third down for the Blitz as Fred Boyle showed some good early poise in the face of Coventry’s pass rush. Gary Clark came up with a big sack to force a third and thirteen as the Jets applied early pressure.
