A disappointing start to the 2011 season saw the Revolution go down 34 - 6 to the Lancashire Wolverines.
Shropshire conceded an early TD after a costly penalty & then a fumbled snap meant a 2-point safety against them. They went into the half 12-0 down.
The Wolverines put four more scores on the board over the second half to come away with a good start to their season in their first home game.
The Revolution's Head Coach is quoted as saying: “You cannot give a team of the Lancashire Wolverines quality the kind of help we did today and expect to win, over a 100 yards in penalties, fundamental mistakes in the kicking game made it a near impossible task. Take nothing away from them they beat us soundly in all 4 phases of the game coaching, offense, defense and special teams.”You can see a full match report in Issue 5 of Inside American Football

The Hertfordshire Hurricanes lost out for the second year running in the BUAFL semi finals in what many have described as the best game of the season.
The Lions started strong & found the Hurricanes napping, not for the first time this season. They managed to rack up a half-time lead of 22 - 6.
The Hurricanes came out for the second half with all pistons firing & ramped up their performance. In a stunning series of plays they put 31 points on the Lions in a single half to lead the game into the last few minutes by 37 - 36.

The Birmingham Lions went for their third Championship running on 9th April at the John Charles Stadium in Leeds.
Unfortunately for them, the Portsmouth Destroyers had other ideas. And although the Lions were first to strike, the Destroyers soon started to grind the game out in their own favour. They drove to a 20 - 6 lead in the fourth quarter but the Liosn weren't done yet.
In a thrilling last quarter the Lions managed to bring the score up to 20 - 19 & in an all or nothing effort, they went for two points to try to win the game rather than going for the tie, they failed & their reign over BUAFL ended.You can see a full photo report in Issue 5 of Inside American Football
