Two Touchdown Passes from QB Aiden Kelly, and one which he ran in himself from 30 yards for the winning score were enough to give the Cycos victory over the Leicester Europa Eagles in Dublin. The Cycos opened the scoring with Kelly’s first TD Pass to Liam Farrel, a deep one to put them 6-0 up. Chris Wild found Craig Broughton for a TD reception of their own to level the scores for the Europa Eagles, and it remained 6-6 until halftime. [1]

Eagles head coach Andy O’Sullivan did some halftime reorganisation, and the Eagles went ahead with a bomb from Wild to Andy Gambrill. A Paul Costall interceprtion put Drimnagh under further pressure but they responded with another Kelly-Farrell connection for a touchdown. It looked like overtime would be needed but Kelly ran in from 30 yards to put the Cycos ahead when all his receivers were covered. He then connected with Tight End Bob Curran for the two point conversion to seal the victory. [1]
