Knights stay undefeated, moving to 6-0

Another successful day at the office for the flag team this weekend!


A rough start against the Antrim Jets placed the Knights at a 14-12 deficit at half time, despite an excellent pick-6 from captain Aaron Black. The team rallied to a 32-21 victory in the second half behind some excellent QB play from Danny Moll and a Jamie Totten interception to seal the deal.


The Knights took this momentum into the second game against the Belfast City Lions, scoring three consecutive touchdowns on the three opening drives, and holding the lead to finish the game with a score of 34-13.

The Knights are now 6-0 on the season and will be looking to lock up the Number 1 seed and guaranteed promotion as we return to Belfast on the 22nd October at Cherryvale playing fields.
