BAFA National Leagues; Week 9 Roundup

Saturday 8th June & Sunday 9th June – By Thomas Rowberry (@Rowberry_)

Week 9 of the BAFA National Leagues saw perhaps the closest set of games since Full10Yards started covering British American Football with 6 games being decided by a field goal or less; the Sheffield Giants, East Kilbride Pirates, Glasgow Tigers, Hertfordshire Cheetahs, Cambridgeshire Cats and Lincolnshire Bombers all managed to come out of the weekend with hard fought Ws.

There were still a few shutouts this weekend with the Jurassic Coast Raptors, Chester Romans, Solent Thrashers, Leeds Bobcats, Birmingham Bulls and Torbay Trojans all managing to shutout their opponents.

Perhaps the result of the weekend saw the Lancashire Wolverines ‘upset’ the Nottingham Caesars 36-16. The Caesars went into the game coming off back to back victories against the Doncaster Mustangs and Shropshire Revolution whilst the Lancashire Wolverines went into the game off the back of a 59-6 beat down at the hands of the Sandwell Steelers. Nottingham now sit at 4-3 whilst the Wolverines keep their playoff hopes alive at 3-3.
