Belfast American Football Writing

Knights’ road win

THE Carrickfergus Knights took the points from last week’s road game against the Dublin City University Saints with a 36-14 win that should set the side up for an improvement in fortunes after a shaky start.

However, in a balanced game that produced two turnovers for the Knights’ defence and an impressive offensive performance, the side will be concerned to concede a 69-yard TD run and a 70 yard plus passing TD.

Scorers for Carrick included two TD passes from quarterback Adam Deveney to Ian McIlroy and Paul McKillop. Linebacker David Antuna notched up a safety. McIlroy, Deveney and David Wright all recorded running touchdowns. Wright’s score was a 67-yard run.

In other weekend games the University of Limerick Vikings continued their good early run of form with a 22-6 win over the Dublin City Marshals, while Cork Admirals and Dublin Dragons battled out a 6-6 tie.

On Sunday the Belfast Bulls will be trying to get their season back on track when they host the Marshals at Deramore Park, while the Admirals travel to Limerick.

In the NFL Europe the impressive run of the Amsterdam Admirals continues after their 30-21 win over Rhein. Cologne and Frankfurt also recorded wins.

Amsterdam now have a 5-1 record for the season, with Rhein and Frankfurt 4-2 so far.

In the NFL the will he/won’t he debate over Brett Favre’s future with the Green Bay Packers seems to be over after the veteran QB signed on for the new season, seemingly encouraged by Green Bay activity in the free agency market.

They have also landed DB Charles Woodson from the Raiders and tackle Kendrick Allen from the NY Giants.
