Report

The European Federation of American Football Atlantic Cup was started in 2009 between the Champions of purely amateur American Football Leagues in Western Europe. It fills the AA (3rd Level) Championship for the region which had been taken by the Charleroi Trophy from 2002 to 2004. In 2015 it was taken over by the German Football League International, which had taken over the running of European American Football competitions, and in 2016, the International Federation of American Football Europe became the continents governing body. It featured the Champions of Ireland, Belgium and Netherlands, and either a Luxembourg entrant or an entrant from the French 3rd Level. In 2017 the Belgian and Dutch associations made the step up to European Football League level, and the Cup was held between Ireland’s representative and Romania’s.

The Cup was won on four occasions by an Irish team: University of Limerick Vikings (2010), Belfast Trojans (2013 and 2015) and Dublin Rebels (2017). Belgium won the Cup three times: West-Vlaanderen Tribes (2009), Brussels Tigers (2014) and Brussels Black Angels (2015) and the Dutch entrant won twice: Lelystad Commanders in 2012 and 2013.

Report

Ireland put in one of their best performances in years against the Coventry Jets, ranked among the top teams in Europe, and the current British Division 1A Champions. The Jets roster included several British Internationals and players with Professional experience.

Erin Wagner was named Team Ireland MVP, picking up some first downs on offense and making some great tackles on defense. Former NFL Europe star Mark Cohen scored two touchdowns, and made several first down receptions, proving the game-winner for Coventry. Other Jets scorers were Running Back Anthony Perkins and Coventry’s 2006 MVP Jeremy Simms.

Perkins made a number of first down runs in the first quarter before scoring the opening touchdown midway through the quarter. Team Ireland responded with an 80-yard drive that got them to the 6-yard line with Simon Mackey, Chris Flynn & Erin Wagner picking up first downs, however, the Jets defense managed to keep Ireland out of the endzone.

The Jets added two touchdowns in the second quarter, one set up by a spectacular sideline catch inside the 5-yard line by Mark Cohen, and the other was a reception from Cohen from QB Tim Spaull after both he and Irish cornerback Willie Coyne both came down with their hands on the ball in the endzone. The Irish had another long drive behind QB Andrew Dennehy in the second quarter but were stopped on fourth down.

The Irish defense stepped up in the second half, with several tackles on the Coventry offense for a loss of yardage, James Kay, Chris Weir, Erin Wagner, Glen Carr and Kenny Hudson all making tackles. The Jets, however, got the ball within scoring range after recovering a fumble. Roxss McCooey came close to making an interception for Ireland, but the Jets scored a few plays later.

Ireland appeared to get stronger as the gamde wore on, and the Jets kept their star players, Cohen, Simms, and defensive Captain Adrian Newey on the field for the fourth quarter. Simon Buggle was now Ireland Quarterback, and he ut together a drive which finished with a scoring run inside from Sam Hodgins on a first-and-goal. Team Ireland also forced a fumble which was recovered by Darragh Farrell for the the turnover.

The Jets got their final TD in the fourth qyarter, when QB Tim Spaull who also played on the GB Lions International team, threw a long touchdown pass to Jeremy Simms. Ireland forced another turnover followingthis as Willie Coyne recovered a muffed punt and sprinted into the endzone for an apparent score, however, the referees ruled that the punter never had full possession of the ball so it couldn’t be advanced. Ireland, however, regained possession.
