Pirates v BlitzThe semi-final stage of British Football’s senior competition, and EK Pirates were facing up to their biggest challenge in years. London Blitz were the visitors to Hamilton, reigning champions and one of the two London teams reckoned to be a class above the rest of the country.

The Pirates started the game well, scoring on a touchdown catch and then forcing the Blitz to fumble. Blitz fought back, blocking a Pirates field goal attempt then scoring an equalising touchdown. A second touchdown for the Blitz just before half time saw them take the lead 14-7. East Kilbride brought the score back to 14-14 in the third quarter, and then took a 3 point lead with a field goal. The Blitz took the lead by 21-17 with 5 minutes to go with their third touchdown and managed to hold off the Pirates until the final whistle.

So East Kilbride’s season ended with a highly creditable performance and did their reputation no harm at all. London Blitz will face their rivals London Warriors in the Britbowl game at Sheffield in a couple of weeks time.
