Irish Football Round-Up and Scoring Charts

Another great weekend of football over in Ireland as the season really picks up the pace. The Cork Admirals vs UCD game was called off but there was still one game in each of the Shamrock Bowl North, Shamrock Bowl South and IAFL-1 to review. One team took firm control of its division whilst another continued its dominating ways.

SBC North

Belfast Trojans 41 - 6 Carrickfergus Knights

The Trojans' domination of the SBC North continued by sweeping aside the Carrickfergus Knights, who have had a good start to the year themselves. David Colvin added another hat-trick of rushing scores to the three he scored the week previous, taking him straight to the top of the SBC rushing touchdown chart.

Last year's Shamrock Bowl MVP full back, Neil Montgomery, added a score himself, whilst Gary Carr returned a punt for a TD. Linebacker, Connor Whitla grabbed his first ever touchdown with a pick six to round off the Trojans' TD scoring whilst rookie receiver Chris Ireland scored his second score of the year from a Spencer McDowell pass for the visiting Knights.

SBC South 

Trinity College Dublin 22 - 10 University of Limerick Vikings
The perennial domination of the South by the UL Vikings may have come to an end with this result. Whilst still early in the year to be talking about divisional winners (we're only half way through!), Trinity have taken a firm grip by beating the Vikings 2 out of 3 times this year. TCD gain revenge for the 13-12 loss just a couple of weeks ago when the Vikes grabbed a score in the last two minutes to win the game.
Marc Ashworth threw a TD pass to Sean Sheehy to add to an Adrian Garvey field goal for the visiting Vikings whilst the great form of running back Rob McDowell and quarterback Alex Gurnee continued as they each grabbed a rushing score for Trinity. A field goal from Peter Quinlan and a pick six from Joonas Kolunsarka rounded off the scoring.

SBC Scoring Charts


North Kildare Reapers 8 - 6 Tullamore Phoenix
The low scoring of the IAFL-1 continues with another tough defensive battle between Tullamore and North Kildare, where a successful 2pt conversion split the teams.

Tight end Eoin Hallissey made a great catch to reel in a Ciaran Heneghan pass for the Reapers' touchdown before Matthew Kavanagh added the 2pt conversion.
Finbarr Glynn scored for the Phoenix on a short full back dive from 3 yards out but the 2pt attempt failed. The result moves the Reapers above the Phoenix but they stay below the Wolves on the head to head and the Dragons on Points Difference.
