American Football BAFA Southern Conference Division Two West 

Torbay Trojans 14 – South Wales Warriors 48 

The South Wales Warriors have given themselves clear advantage in the battle to win the west division after their most impressive victory of the season. 

Both the Warriors and the Torbay Trojans had perfect 5-0 records heading into this clash in Paignton but the hosts were unable to live with the Welshmen who scored seven touchdowns. 

The Trojans must now re-group ahead of the return fixture on July 7 in which the Warriors can seal a second successive west division title. 

Receivers Jamie Gilpin, Michael Hiles and Mick Duncan each grabbed a touchdown with running back Daniel Abbruzzese running in another score.

But the defending west champions weren’t content with four offensive touchdowns and added a further three scores from their defence and punt return units. 

Defensive back Daniel Dacey returned an interception for a touchdown and also took a punt return back for six points to add to his ‘pick six’. 

Linebacker Nik Yeubrey also recovered a fumble for a touchdown. The Warriors converted six of their seven touchdowns and the home side’s scores amounted to little other than a consolation. 

The Warriors return to action on Sunday, July 7 when they host the Trojans at Llanharan Rugby Club’s Dairy Field.
