Report

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic the Canadian Football League chose to have no preseason, and start the league late, in August, running for 16 weeks regular season with each team playing 14 regular season matches before the playoffs.

Week 1 Recap

Saskatchewan Roughriders broke out of the blocks in the first game at home in Mosaic Stadium in over 600 days, as they put up 32 points in the first half against BC Lions. The Lions made a spirited comeback in the second half, but the Roughriders held them off to win 33-29. The other contests were not as high-scoring, Toronto making a fourth quarter comeback to defeat Calgary with a late Field Goal, and Winnipeg coming from 6-0 down in the first quarter to win 19-6 at home to Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The much-anticipated game between the Edmonton Elks, playing for the first time under their new nickname, and Ottawa REDBLACKS ended 20-16 to Ottawa with the expected Offensive showdown between Quarterbacks Trevor Harris and Matt Nichols giving way to a defensive battle where the only Touchdown was a 102-yard Interception Return by Abdul Kanneh with 5 minutes remaining to give Ottawa victory.

Week 2 Recap

Kyran Moore, a player with an Irish name was on the scoresheet for Saskatchewan Roughriders as they came from 8-7 down in the second quarter to storm to a 30-8 victory in Hamilton versus the Tiger-Cats. Moore caught a 6 yard touchdown pass from Cody Fajardo to put the Roughriders 24-8 up in the third quarter. Meanwhile the BC Lions Michael Reilly, in for starting quarterback Nathan Rourke, both Irish names, scored on a 1 yard quarterback sneak that put them 12-3 up against Calgary Stampeders. Reilly would guide the Vancouver franchise to a 15-9 victory. Meanwhile Shai Ross caught an 11 yard touchdown pass from Trevor Harris to score a consolation TD for the Edmonton Elks as they went 0-2 in a 13-30 loss at home to Montreal Alouettes. Winnipeg Blue Bombers defeated Toronto Argonauts 20-7 in the other game. After two weeks Montreal Alouettes (1-0), Saskatchewan Roughriders (2-0) and Winnipeg Blue Bombers (2-0) were undefeated.

Week 3 Recap

Edmonton Elks got their first win under their new name, 21-16 versus British Columbia Lions, dropping the Lions to 1-2. Calgary Stampeders also moved to 1-2 with a 28-22 win against Montreal Alouettes as the Alouettes fell to 1-1. Toronto Argonauts gained revenge for the previous weeks loss to Winnipeg by defeating the Blue Bombers 30-23 to join them on four points. Saskatchewan Roughriders became the team to beat by defeating the also undefeated Ottawa REDBLACKS 23-10.

Week 4 Recap

Toronto Argonauts v Edmonton Elks was postponed due to a COVID outbreak among Edmonton players, and Hamilton Tiger-Cats won 27-10 versus Montreal Alouettes to gain the Ti-Cats first win of the season. British Columbia Lions won 24-12 versus Ottawa REDBLACKS to move to four points, while Winnipeg Blue Bombers joined Saskatchewan Roughriders on 6 points with a narrow 18-16 win over Calgary Stampeders.

Week 5 Recap

Montreal Alouettes defeated Ottawa REDBLACKS 51-29 to move into a three-way tie in the East with Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats with all three teams on four points after Hamilton had defeated Toronto Argonauts 32-19. Meanwhile in the West Division Edmonton Elks won 32-20 versus Calgary Stampeders in the battle of the two Alberta teams languishing on two points at the foot of the table before the game. The big game of the weekend, however, was Winnipeg Blue Bombers 23-8 defeat of Saskatchewan Roughriders, the Riders first loss of the season, and which left the Blue Bombers in sole possession of first place in the West on eight points.

Week 6 Recap

With both teams on a 2-2 record the meeting of Toronto Argonauts and Hamilton Tiger-Cats was always likely to be close and so it proved as the Argos won by the slenderest of margins 17-16. Meanwhile the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and Saskatchewan Roughriders met again at the top of the West with the Bombers coming out best for the second week in a row, 33-9, to move into a four point lead at the top of the division. Calgary Stampeders moved level with Edmonton Elks with a 32-16 win to put both teams on four points, and British Columbia Lions joined Saskatchewan Roughriders on six points with a 45-13 rout of Ottawa REDBLACKS.

Week 7 Recap

Winnipeg Blue Bombers swon for the sixth time in seven games as they defeated Edmonton Elks 37-22 to continue to set the pace in the West Division. The British Columbia Lions remain their nearest challeger on 8 points thanks to Michael Reilly’s 308 yards and two touchown passing display versus Montreal in a 27-18 victory. The Saskatchewan Roughriders snapped a two-game losing streak to also move to 4-2 in the West with a 30-16 win against East Division leaders Toronto Argonauts. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats joined the Argos on 3-3 at the top of the East with a 23-17 triumph over Calgary Stampeders.

REPORT

The East Side Jets, from Castlereagh in East Belfast, made a successful start to their Irish American Football preseason, winning 6-0 on their debut against Aldergove Hawks, at RAF Aldergrove in Antrim, before defeating Bangor Buccaneers 7-2 on their home debut, with a fourth quarter touchdown from Mark Dunwoody, who ran in from 25 yards out.

The Craigavon Cowboys won 26-0 against Bangor Buccaneers, with Shamrock Bowl I MVP (Most Valuable Player) from 1986, Nigel Trimble scoring a 21-yard run, which John Mulally added to with a reception from QB Geoff Donaghy. There was a second passing TD in the second half as Brendan McAleese added a reception, and then Stanley Kingsmill finished off the scoring with a 9 yard run. McAleese also scored two extra points.

Belfast Blitzers defeated Belfast Spartans 45-6 at Musgrave Park in Belfast at the end of March.

In the final Preseason match of 1987, Carrickfergus Cougars came from behind to defeat Belfast Spartans. Hollowell had put the Spartans 7-6 up with a TD which was converted, and then Hollowell put the Spartans further ahead with a second touchdown just after halftime. With only two minutes left on the clock, the Cougars struck back, with a TD, adding a two-point conversion, to lead 14-13, which they held despite a late Spartans drive, which left them in Field Goal position. the Cougars managed to block the FG, though, to seal the win.

ABOUT SHINTY

Shinty is Gaelic Scotland’s traditional version of Hurling. It is one of the forgotten Gaelic, Celtic or Atlantic Games like Basque Pelota and Welsh Baseball, played mostly in Gaelic parts of Scotland like the Highlands and Islands.

The game is very similar to Hurling, with a curved stick used to hit a ball through a goal, except there is no point-over-the-bar and less play in the air. The game is 12-a-side as opposed to Hurling’s 15-a-side. It is also known as Camanachd in Scottish Gaelic.

About Calcio Storico Fiorentino

Calcio Storico Fiorentino is a Renaissance Football game first played in Florence (Fiorentina), Tuscany in the 1400s by workers on breaks from work in the city. It was the first organised football in the world, rather than the Medieval mob football which preceeded it and where there were no rules or restrictions on numbers playing. It could be seen as part of the wider Renaissance whereby Tuscany’s ancient pre-Roman, pre-Catholic past was brought back. It is 27-a-side and played on sand in the Piazza di Santa Croce

*The Tuscan language (Etruscan) is one which predates the Latin arrival in the Italian peninsula, and even though the letters and sounds are known there is no knowledge of the word meanings as no document translating Etruscan to Latin or Greek has ever been found. It does, however, sound similar to Basque, and therefore could be incuded in the Celtic sports section as part of the “Atlantic” or “Black Atlantic” family along with the Celtic languages, Basque and Berber (Tamashek) – half the words in the Gaelic language are of an Indo-European origin (Greek, Latin, Germanic, Slavic etc)and half of a North African Afro-Asiatic origin (Berber, Tuareg, Maltese, Hebrew, Arab etc).

Craigavon Cowboys Season Report 1986

The Craigavon Cowboys played their first ever fully kitted game with pads and helmets in Shane Park, Lurgan, on May 19 1986 in the first ever fully kitted games in Northern Ireland between two Irish teams. Craigavon Cowboys lost that match 0-46 in what was an inauspicious start for a season that ended in triumph.

Another defeat in the American Independence Day Summer Bowl Festival in Dublin on August 6 followed, where they lost to Dublin Celts in the Semi-Finals of a four team Tournament played with a rolling clock and 20 minute quarters.

They again lost heavily to Belfast Blitzers in the Final Week on September 1, 0-40 but on September 27 they defeated Coleraine Chieftains 33-0 which enabled them to advance to the Shamrock Bowl, which was arranged after the season had ended. There they won 6-2 versus the Dublin Celts with a Touchdown by Nigel Trimble with only four minutes remaining, having gone 2-0 down in the first half having conceded a safety.

The Cowboys thus went down in history as the first winners of the Shamrock Bowl, Ireland’s Super Bowl. The turnaround was largely attributed to Chuck Ebron, a new Coach brought in from USA for the second half of the season.
