With so many impressive victories, win-streaks and other notable stories, it’s a bumper first page in this week’s edition of Good Week/Bad Week, as we had a lot of trouble narrowing them down!
- The York Centurions are the early contender for the non-existent DC Twitter Feed of the Year.
- Quietly going about their business, Portsmouth Destroyers are 3-0 following victory over Reading.
- The Nottingham Students maintained their superb start to the season, forcing Worcester into submission at the half.
- One of 3 sides to register 50+ points, Teeside Cougars shut out the Pyros, winning 56-0.
Flying under the radar somewhat, the Cardiff Cobras moved up to 3-0 on the season and tightened their grip over the 1A South West division following a 20-0 shutout win over UWE Bullets. Both previous victories were slightly cagey affairs, but the Cobras dominated from start to finish. The return fixture against Solent awaits in a fortnight.
A fortnight removed from a 40-0 win over BNU, the Emperors were brought crashing back down to earth as the Stags went on the rampage in a 62-2 rout. Nearly hitting the fabled 50-burger BY HALF TIME, running back Aaron Adekoya marched through the Emperors defense for 3 scores in the first quarter, including a 70-yard scamper.
SHEFFIELD HALLAM WARRIORS
With a 14-49 road win in the #SteelBowl, Sheffield Hallam secured bragging rights over the Sabres. Former Stirling QB Dutch Stephenson lit up the Sabres’ secondary, torching them for 4 scores and a tonne of yardage. Hallam’s offense (multiple plays of 40+ yards) caught fire , which should strike fear in the rest of the 1A North West.
Though only 1-1 following yesterday’s win over Lincoln, the mere fact that the Eagles bounced back from a 31-12 loss to Coventry a fortnight ago to defeat the highly touted Colonials (fresh off beating Northampton 42-0) is worthy of a spot on this weeks’ Good Week. A last minute field goal sealed the come-from-behind victory.
