Opening day of the American Football National Leagues brought us a new local derby as Edinburgh Wolves, newly promoted to the Premier Division, visited East Kilbride Pirates at Hamilton Rugby Club on 9th April.

The Wolves made a strong start, scoring a touchdown on their opening posession. East Kilbride kept pace with them however and by half time they led by 14-12. Both teams had two touchdowns but Edinburgh had missed their extra points.

Edinburgh continued to set the place in the second half and built a two touchdown lead. It took a last gasp effort from the Pirates to pull back the two scores in the last five minutes. In this half it was East Kilbride who missed both extra point attempts and that meant the game finished as a 26-26 tie.
