An afternoon of Roller Derby on Saturday 16th as Mean City hosted a double header at the Arc at Caledonian Uni against teams for the east.
Firstly, the MC women’s team were big winners as they saw off the New Town Roller Girls. The second game was much closer, the opposition more experienced and definitely much more physical, but the Mean City mixed team came out on top of Fear & Lothian.

While the Pirates senior side in struggling this season a bright spot is provided by the under 19 team who are on yet another unbeaten run. Last season the only game they lost was the national final, and that by only 46-42 in an outstanding game against London Blitz.
This season they’re unbeaten again and they showed their class on 17th June with a 58-8 win against Merseyside Nighthawks at GHA.

The Scotland girls played the first of two games against Ulster at Glasgow Green on 15th June.

This game was scoreless through the first three quarters, although Scotland had hit the post twice. The excirement came with a few minutes to go. Ulster scored first, from a penalty corner, but couldn’t hold onto the lead as the Scots finally forced one home.

Scotland women are playing a three game series against the World Cup bound Italians at Glasgow Green from 12 to 15th June.

In game one on Tuesday night Italy opened the scoring just after half time. There was a strong fightback however and Scotland fought through to win 2-1.
Game two on Thursday lunchtime was blown open in the second quarter by a burst of three goals in eight minutes for the Italians. Once again, Scotland fought back in the second half but this time they could only bring the score back to 3-2.
Scotland finally got off to a good start in the final game on Friday night. However, after their early goal they fell behind by 2-1 and it took a late equaliser to save the game. This left the series tied and the shoot-out was played to decide the winner, and that went Scotland’s way.

After the single point win for the Wolves in this season’s first meeting between these two teams there was plenty anticipation for the return fixture which was played at Meggetland on 10th June.
The crowd weren’t disappointed as the Pirates turned a first quarter 7-0 defecit into a 13-7 half time lead. This lead was stretched by a Pirates defensive touchdown early in the third, but from there Edinburgh got their offence into gear and three TDs saw them finish with a lead of 29-25.

The win has the Wolves at 3&2 for the season while East Kilbride are stuck at the bottom of the division with five defeats.

After the Aussie Rules footy on 19th May I went out to Yoker to see the Glasgow Celtic Society Cup semi-final.
The game went to form. After Kyles (currently third in the Premiership) took an early lead, GMA (third in the National Division) gave a good showing but couldn’t quite get on terms. The final score was 4-2 to the visitors.

Scotland’s Aussie Rules league is going well these days with half a dozen active teams.
I got along to Nethercraigs on 19th May to see the Greater Glasgow Giants take on the long established Edinburgh Bloods.
This season’s Giants aren’t quite the team which took last year’s championship and though they made the game close in the third quarter it was a happy Bloods team which went back to Edinburgh with the win by (13.15) 93 to (9.14) 68.
