Irish League Scoring Charts

Another huge week in the Shamrock Bowl Conference and IAFL-1! Eight teams and four games scored 125 points, but the Belfast Trojans-Craigavon Cowboys game scored more than half of that on its own. The blowout sent the Trojans back to the top of the SBC North, whilst the Cowboys are now only off the bottom thanks to their head-to-head record with the West Dublin Rhinos.

The Rhinos meanwhile regained their solid defensive form and ability to grind out wins, against none other than the Dublin Rebels, who they'd never beaten before. The latter will be bitterly disappointed, having also lost the lead in the SBC North, but with two games against the Trojans to go everything is still there to play for.

In the SBC South Trinity College Dublin beat their cross-town rivals, University College Dublin, 21-0, a result that sends them back to the top of the table before their crunch match against UL Vikings next weekend.

In IAFL-1 a strong Drogheda Lightning side beat a spirited Mullingar Minotaurs team 20-6, with the latter scoring points on their first ever competitive outing. Lightning's quarterback Dan Finnamore had a second half to remember with two passing and one rushing touchdown.

SBC Scoring Charts

Simon Mackey scored another touchdown in the Rebels' 7-6 loss to the Rhinos, making him the first player to stand alone at the top of the rushing touchdown chart this year. 
Meanwhile David Colvin scored his first, second and third rushing touchdowns of the year in Belfast's 58-7 rout of Craigavon, where Alex Newton, Peter Roberts and last year's Shamrock Bowl MVP, Neil Montgomery, also got one each.
Rob McDowell added a couple of rushing TDs to his tally as well, putting him firmly back in the chase for the top after scoring his first last week against UL. Can he add to it next weekend against the Vikes in what will be a hugely important game?

Mckelvey added another two TDs to his tally whilst O'Meara was shut out at TCD. Rushing TDs were the trend of the weekend, with all three of Trinity's touchdowns coming along the ground. However Jonathan Northcutt grabbed the first points of West Dublin's season through the air and will no doubt be looking for more in the weeks to come. 

Just the three receiving TDs this week! Richardson grabbed himself a touchdown in the Trojans-Cowboys game to put himself alone atop the receiving charts. Fu Faapito also grabbed a score for Belfast in that game, his first of the season. Alex McGuirk grabbed West Dublin's score against Dublin Rebels, also his first of the year.

There were no Special Teams or Defensive TDs this week in the SBC.


Matthew Kavanagh's pair of scores against the Wolves in the Reapers' 14-12 loss means he sits on top of the rushing charts. Only one score from four this weekend was a rush (how often can we say that?!) as quarterback Finnamore scrambled for points for Drogheda against the Minotaurs.

Dan Finnamore sits alone atop the IAFL-1 passing touchdown charts after scoring two more this week to add to his TD against Tullamore. However the Lightning are the only IAFL-1 team to have played two games so there's plenty of opportunity for others to catch him.

Five different receivers have scored a TD each in the IAFL-1 this year. Dermot Corroon got out of his usual spot in the Minotaurs backfield to catch a pass to score the Minotaurs first competitive points. Meanwhile Drogheda's tight ends, Mick O'Shea and Alan Conlan, grabbed a touchdown each.
