The Pirates kept up their winning streaks with big wins over the Northern Sydney Rebels in Week 3 of the 2016 season.

The Pirates Colts had a big win against an undermanned but courageous Rebels team by 48-0. The win keeps the Pirates at the top of the Colts’ Standings

The Pirates Division 1 team followed that up with a mixed display but still managed a 46-6 win over their northern opponents.

Week 4 games see the Pirates Division 1 team take on the Newcastle Cobras while the Colts have a Bye.

The Pirates got their 2016 campaigns underway in impressive style in Week 2 of the season. With Week 1 games being cancelled due to wet weather the games against Wollongong would be the Pirates’ first serious hit out and the first real chance to see how the teams had come together in the pre-season.

The Pirates Colts got the day off to a great start with a 32-12 win over the Wollongong Brumbies. The Pirates, fielding a team largely made up of rookies, started well and were never headed on the day.

The Pirates Division 1 team followed that up with an impressive 56-8 win over the Wollongong Mustangs. The Pirates scored from their first play from scrimmage and kept up the pressure throughout the game to record their win.

It was a great start by both teams but there is a long season ahead and still a lot of improvements to make.

Week 3 games see the Pirates take on the Northern Sydney Rebels.

The West Sydney Pirates Colts season came to an end against the undefeated Sutherland Seahawks in the Playoff game at David Phillips Field.

The final score of 30-8 was not a true reflection of the game as the teams were close up until the closing stages of the game when the Seahawks’ larger squad proved to be the difference by helping them to score quick points to blow out the final margin.

Although they didn’t make the Championship Game the young Pirates can be proud of their efforts throughout what was a challenging and often difficult season.

Congratulations!

The Pirates now move on to the second round of the Playoffs where they take on reigning Champions, the Sutherland Seahawks.

Wollongong Mustangs

The Pirates took on Wollongong in Week 11 of the 2015 season and it was two wins but for very different reasons.

The Pirates Colts won on a forfeit when the Wollongong Brumbies were unable to field a team.

The Pirates Division 1 team defeated a gutsy Wollongong Mustangs team by 60-18. The score is not a true reflection of the game though as the Pirates only showed flashes of what they are capable of achieving.

North Western Predators

It was a mixed day for the West Sydney Pirates in Week 8 of the GNSW 2015 competition games played at the Pennant Hills Hockey Centre.

The Pirates’ Colts started the day and fought hard throughout but fell to the North Western Panthers by a score of 10-6.

In the final game of the day the Pirates’ Division 1 team faced an equally tough challenge against a very determined North Western Predators team.

The Predators got on top early and had much better field position and momentum in the first half, but the Pirates got on track in the second half and ran out winners by 28-12.

Wollongong Mustangs

The Pirates Colts and Division 1 teams both recorded big wins against their respective opponents in Week 6 of the 2015 season.

The Colts started proceedings with an impressive 54-12 win over the Wollongong Brumbies.

The win was the Colts second consecutive win and a real breakout performance, particularly by the Offense.

The Pirates’ Colts are now sitting third on the Standings as they move onto their Week 7 Bye.

Not to be outdone, the Division 1 team recorded back-to-back shutouts with a 60-0 win over the Newcastle Cobras.

Like their younger Club-mates the Division 1 team are also sitting third on the Standings.

In Week 7 the Pirates Division 1 team takes on the Central Coast Sharks.

UTS Gridiron

It was a great day for Pirate football as both the Colts and Division 1 teams toppled their respective opponents from UTS and ended their undefeated runs.

The momentum was started by the Colts team who came into their game still searching for their first win. The signs were there as the young Pirates had been improving each week and it all came together against the more fancied UTS Colts who boasted a larger, more experienced squad.

Without doubt the real highlight, amongst many, was the spirited goal-line stand as the clock wound down. With the Pirates holding a slender 8-6 lead UTS had at least two sets of Downs to score and win the game but the young Pirates were not to be denied and held firm to preserve their first win of the season. Congratulation to all the players and coaches on an exciting and inspiring win!

The Pirates’ Division 1 team had challenges of their own against their traditionally tough rivals.

The game started slowly for both teams with no scores in the 1st Quarter but the Pirates got onto the scoreboard twice in the second period, and converted both TDs, to take a 16-0 lead into the half-time break.

A very quick 3rd Quarter with no addition to the score was followed by another two Pirate TDs in the final period to round out the 30-0 score line.

The Pirates played a methodical, well balanced game and the result was well deserved.

All in all it was a successful Week 5 for the Club but the focus now shifts to the work required to maintain and build on that success for the weeks ahead.
