Both the junior and Senior Pirates teams made the trip to Skelmersdale on 23rd July to play matches against Merseyside Nighthawks.

The under 19s were first to play. They had two goals. One was simply to keep their winning streak going, the other was to concede as few points as possible so they would have home advantage for their coming play-off meeting with Nottingham Caesars. They succeeded in both, taking the game with a comfortable scoreline of 56-6.

The senior Pirates faced a much bigger task. Merseyside hold second place in the division again and needed the win to confirm their play-off berth.
East Kilbride conceded two touchdowns early in the game, but at half time they were still in it at 26-13 down. They couldn’t keep up this momentum in the second half though as the Nighthawks kept the pressure on and went on to win by 59-13.
