Kent Exiles - Maidstone Pumas Game Report

by Martin Jefkins

Kent Exiles 58-0 Maidstone Pumas 
The Kent Exiles dominated the Maidstone Pumas for the second time in 2013, this time in their home fixture at a sweltering Beaverwood Club, coming away easy winners 58-0.
The scoring came thick and fast, despite the Pumas showing obvious improvement from earlier in the season. The first quarter saw Ben McCarthy start the scoring on a 9 yard catch from Zac Ritchie, and then Ryan Wilson snagged an interception and returned it 71 yards for the second score. The return was the longest in Exiles history, beating the previous best of 67 yards set in 2005 by Michael Turner.

Essex Spartans - Colchester Gladiators Game Report

by Nick Foxley

The Colchester Gladiators got off to an explosive start, running in three scores in their first four plays, on their way to an over-powering 51-6 demolition of their county rivals, Essex Spartans.

Under the floodlights at Hannakins Farm, Billericay, the host Spartans had no answer to the strength of running back Casey Campbell, who ran for another 176 yards from just 11 carries and three touchdowns, and a strong defensive performance, led by defensive lineman Dan Jones, who picked up 2½ sacks, and Josh Milgate, who led the team with eight tackles.

Pirates shatter Sheffield’s nineteen game winning streak

East Kilbride Pirates 36– 06 Sheffield Predators

Sheffield’s 19-game winning streak came to a sudden halt last weekend when they travelled north to face East Kilbride. In the first ever meeting between these two sides, the Pirates’ strength and experience of playing at the top level was too much for the Predators to overcome. East Kilbride received the opening kick-off and, on a wet and blustery day, promptly fumbled the greasy ball. Fortunately they recovered it and continued with their opening drive. Progress was aided by a couple of Ryan Hunter passes to veteran receiver Jason Byworth and the opening points arrived when Iain Dick carried home from the 12-yard line.
