Match Report | BAFA NL ’19 – Caesars vs Steelers

by Sam Banner

After starting the back half of the season with a win against Lancashire, Sandwell made the trip to Nottingham for the return fixture against the Caesars.

With Nottingham trying to stay in the hunt for the playoffs and Sandwell looking to keep hold of the number one spot in the division, both sides had a lot to play for. However, the Steelers rolled through their opponents behind a brutal running game and a seemingly impenetrable defence.

RB Raph Chisholm started the scoring with two touchdowns on the ground after some early stops from the defence. DE Alex Roofe claimed a sack on the next drive and WR Steve Kinnersley showed strength in a collision with a DB for the opening passing touchdown from QB Tristan Varney. Kinnersley wasn’t the only one catching passes though, as DB Pete Roden snagged another pick on the season and was quickly matched by DB Andy Wilson in the second quarter.

Not everything went to plan for Sandwell though as they were penalised heavily throughout the game, one such penalty negating a wonderful kick return touchdown from WR Alex Salter.

RB Raph Chisholm picked up yet another hat trick on the day and WR Roman Huggins ran in a 59-yard touchdown to bring the half time score to 36-0.

With a running clock on the second-half, how many more points were the Steelers able to rack up?  Find out at
