Season Report

Cork Admirals 2nds won the Christy Farrell Memorial Tournament on 2nd September 2007, held in Edenderry Rugby Club, Co. Offaly. They beat the Edenderry Soldiers 28-0 in the opening game and then defeated Dublin dragons 2nds 42-0. They were scheduled to take part in a third match against the Tallaght Outlaws 2nds but a combination of a serious injury to a player and the torrential rain making the playing surface unsafe led to the rest of the tournament being cancelled and the Admirals declared winners. Wide Receiver Dave Barry was the star for the Admirals, scoring a total of four touchdowns.

Season Report

The Preseason went well for the East Side Jets first ever season, winning 6-0 against Aldergrove Hawks, and then 7-2 against Bangor Buccaneers in their home debut with a fourth quarter touchdown from Mark Dunwoody.

In their first Regular Season game, however, they came up against IAFA Champions from 1986, the Belfast Blitzer, who ran up the score 92-0, and the in their second week they were overwhelmed 58-0 by Shamrock Bowl Champions the previous year, Craigavon Cowboys.

The Jets never recovered after that, and the 9 points they scored against the Belfast Blitzers were to be the only ones they would score all season. They folded after 6 of 10 games, although a match against the Jordanstown Jaguars was overturned in their favour after the Jaguars also pulled out.

Shamrock Bowl XXI

29 July 2007 – University of Limerick Vikings 22 Cork Admirals 14

Seamus Hogan, who scored two touchdowns, won the Most Valuable Player Award in the Irish American Football League Shamrock Bowl XXI in 2007, as the University of Limerick Vikings beat the Cork Admirals 22-14 in a close Munster Derby.

Cork had a great start with kick returner David Barry returned the opening kickoff well into Limerick territory. They were stopped short of the goal-line, however, as were the Vikings on the next drive. On their next possession the Cork Admirals got into good field position following a 40 yard draw play by full back Alain Pezeron, leaving them on first and goal on the 3 yard line, which Keith O’Callaghan capitalized on with a 3-yard rushing touchdown for the first score of the game. Pezeron converted for two points.

The vikings got back into the game immediately, with Quarterback Chris Bassitt driving them downfield, helped by Running Backs Andrew Gordan and Seamus Hogan. Hogan got the equalizing touchdown, with a 5-yard run up the middle, converted for two points by Bassitt. The second quarter was scoreless as both defenses held the opposing offense, with good defensive plays by Vikings defenders Eoin O’Sullivan, Declan O’Donnell, Damien Laffan and Alan O’Carroll. The Admirals defensive line of Marcus Gates, Ross McCullough and Barry Rea forced a number of tackles for losses. The Vikings got the first turnover of the day with less than 5 minutes to go to halftime, when their defensive back intercepted the ball, however, they missed the resulting field goal, leaving the score 8-8 at half-time.

The first play from scrimmage of the second half yielded the second turnover of the day, as Admirals linebacker Martin Mulvey recovered a Vikings fumble to leave them in good field position on the Vikings 20-yard line. Shortly afterwards, the Admirals went 14-8 up as Quarterback David Lomansey connected with Wide Receiver Dominic MacHale for a 30-yard touchdown pass. Limerick then drove deep into Admirals territory, but a fierce goalmouth stand for the Cork side on their own 5-yard line prevented the Vikings from scoring. The Vikings defense, however, ensured their offense got another chance before the quarter was out, as they forced the Admirals to punt, giving the UL offense the ball at midfield. Through runs by Bassitt and Gordon they got to the 10-yard line, where Seamus Hogan scored his second running touchdown, on a draw play up the middle, pushing the ball over the goal-line as the Admirals defenders attempted to tackle him. The Single Point Kick conversion put the Vikings 15-14 up at the end of the third quarter.

Again the Vikings defense forced the Admirals to punt early in the fourth quarter, and in the ensuing drive, the Vikings went to the air with a long pass from Quarterback Bassitt to Wide Receiver Marc Ashworth, setting up MVP Seamus Hogan for his third touchdown of the day, as a he scored on a 5-yard sweep to the right. again the conversion kick was good to put the Vikings 22-14 up. The game was not over yet, however, and the Admirals drove to the Vikings two-yard line on the next drive. In the best defensive performance of the day, the Vikings held, the Admirals on all four downs, and the Vikings punted on their next possession having failed to run out the clock. The punt pinned the Cork side deep in their own territory, and while they picked up a couple of first downs, were stopped on fourth down with less than 30 seconds left. The Vikings could then celebrate their first ever Shamrock Bowl win. [Ref: 4]

Season Report

The Cork Admirals reached the Shamrock Bowl in 2007, losing to the University of Limerick Vikings 22-14. The season had started with wins over Belfast Bulls (13-6) and University of Limerick (30-0) before back-to-back defeats to Dublin Rebels (26-28) and the return game with the Vikings (20-36).

The Admirals regrouped after this, and won big against Tallaght Outlaws (30-0), Dublin City University Saints (64-0), Belfast Trojans (60-0) and Tallaght Outlaws (64-0), to leave them with a 6-2 Won-Loss Record, and a place in the Wild-Card Playoffs with the Belfast Trojans, where they won 30-0, before another close game with the Dublin Rebels in the Semi-Finals, which they won 8-6, letting in the first points in six games. Then followed the heartbreak of the Shamrock Bowl against the Vikings, with the two teams evenly matched over the season beforehand, the Vikings having the slight advantage of only one loss, and homefield advantage.

Report

The 1990 season for the Dublin Celts was a mixed one. They did poorly in the NCMMA, the British Second Level, losing all four matches, with another two cancelled, but they also played matches against Irish League teams, beating the Craigavon Cowboys once, and meeting them again in the Shamrock Bowl, the result of which is still disputed.

The highlight, however, was their victory in the Eurobowl over the Barcelona Boxers, the first by an Irish team in European American Football competitions, and in the following round, they went close against the Manchester spartans, one of the top teams in Britain, and indeed Europe, losing in the end only 12-28.

Match Reports 2007

Week 1 – 25 March 2007 – Dublin Rebels 8 DCU Saints 0

A defensive battle opened the season for these two IAFL Central Dublin rivals. Both teamsfought tirelessly to shut down the oppositions offense, with the secondaries having a terrific game. Saints Defensive Backs Willie Coyne, Scott Quigly and Bobby Blankenship put in top performances, as did their counterparts on the Rebels, Steve Archibald, and Marcus Naylor. Saints linebackers Carl Rushe, Thomas O’Regan, Austan Ragans and Joe Carlyle put constant pressure on the Rebels offense, and this coupled the the DB’s effort resulted in Linemen Cathal O’Callaghan, Neil Callanan and Kris Konieczny overwhelming the Rebels Offensive line. alllowing Konieczny to get the Saints first sack of the season on the Rebels satr Quarterback Andy Dennehy.

The Rebels scored the only score of the match when Andy Dennehy connected with Wide Receiver Mike Kresowaty on a 13-yard Touchdown Pass in the first quarter, which was converted by Tight End Henry Wassermann, on a pass from Dennehy for the two points. [Ref: 4]

Week 3 – 14 April 2007 – DCU Saints 0 Dublin Dragons 6

This game was a defensive battle, with the lone score coming on a breakaway score in the second quarter. The Saints, however, managed to block the Dragons PAT (Point After Touchdown) attempt.Throughout the game both sides managed to force the oppositions offense to punt on fourth down. [Ref: 5]

Week 5 – 29 April 2007 – DCU Saints 20 Carrickfergus Knights 12

The DCU Saints won their first game of the year against the Knights to keep them in the leadership battle for the IAFL Central title. [Ref: 5]

Week 6 – 6 May 2007 – DCU Saints 0 Dublin Rebels 46

The DCU saints defense put up a good fight, with two interceptions, and the offense also fought gallantly, but it wasn’t enough as the Rebels ran out comfortable 46-0 winners, leaving the DCU Saints in second place in the Division. [Ref: 5]

Week 8 – 4 June 2007 – DCU Saints 2 University of Limerick Vikings 50

This was a resceduled game from Week 1, and was played in terrible condtions with an understrength DCU squad. The Vikings moved effectively on Offense to move downfield to score many times, and provided significant coverage on Defense to stifle the DCU Offense. Willie Coyne scored the DCU Saints only 2 points with an intercepted Vikings conversion attempt. [Ref: 6]

Week 9 – 11 June 2007 – Cork Admirals 64 DCU Saints 0

The DCU Saints ere overwhelmed in Cork against the Adirals who had over twice the numbers of another understrength DCU squad. A lot of the Saints players played Ironmen – playing both ways – and in extremely hot weather against a very strong Admirals team, were not able to put points on the board. [Ref: 6]

Week 10 – 17 June 2007 – Belfast Bulls 30 DCU Saints 0 #

The DCU saints forfeited this game to the Belfast Bulls, as they had a severely understrength team, more so than in the previous two games, and were unable to field a team as a lot of players were either away or involved in exams. [Ref: 6]

Week 11 – 25 June 2007 – 24 June 2007 – Dublin Dragons 0 DCU Saints 12

The Saints again had an understrength team, half the Dragons numbers, with players again playing both ways, but won 12-0 at home to win their second, and final, game of the season, and end on a high note. Willie Coyne put in a great performance returning a punt 70-odd yards for a Touchdown, and Colm Bolger, and Carl Rushe, who played both Quarterback and Linebacker, both also put in notable performances.
