25th February was the last Sunday of the BUCS American football regular season and I was at Stirling University to see the Clansmen, the reigning champions, take on the hot team of the Premier Division, Durham University Saints.

Right from the start the visitors were in dominating mood as two early touchdowns set up a 24-0 halftime lead. By the end the score was 30-0 and the Saints had completed a perfect 8 and 0 season. Both teams will have home play-off matches next weekend.

The 24th February was the final weekend of the Shinty preseason and I managed to get along to Yoker for a friendly match between Glasgow Mid Argyll and Kingussie.
GMA will be playing in the National Division this year while Kingussie are a Premiership team. The game reflected this. It was always closely contested but the visitors were clearly the better team as they powered to a 3-1 win.

As I was already at Glasgow Green for the Scotland Under 16s game on 17th February I stayed on the watch Kelburne men beat Hillhead 2-0 in a friendly game, warming up for the resumption of the outdoor season.

Scotland under 16 boys started a busy period with three games against a UK Lions squad in Glasgow over the February 16-18 weekend.

After the first game at Titwood finished 2-2 (I wasn’t there) the second game at Glasgow Green say the Lions holding a 3-1 lead until Scotland came back with two very late goals to snatch a draw. A winner finally emerged from the Sunday game as Scotland scored two early goals and built on the lead to finish with a 5-2 result.

Sunday 4th February was Superbowl day and Napier Knights, as always, made their BUCS league game a big event and attracted a healthy crowd to Meggetland. The opposition this year came from Glasgow University, making it a tasty fixture as both teams were chasing the Division 1 North title.

The game was close with Glasgow holding a narrow 6-3 lead deep into the fourth quarter. Then a flurry of action in the last couple of minutes saw the teams exchange touchdowns, the final score was 14-9 to the Tigers.
