Championship Day. Leichhardt Oval and it was the Pirates taking on the Sydney University Lions. Kick off 5.00pm.
The 1st Quarter came to an end and the Pirates are dominating in every phase. The Pirates had the ball for only three plays in total! The Lions lead 7-0.
The Pirates are struggled to get into the game. Sydney Uni are dominating possession and controlling the clock.

The Lions scored early in the 2nd Quarter but hadn’t scored since. They were threatening every time though.

Lions lead at halftime 14-0.

The 3rd Quarter came to an end with no addition to the score. A dominant Sydney University team AND the clock were now the enemies.

Lions lead 14-0.
A Field Goal by the Lions was the only score in the Second Half.

Sydney University were too strong, too committed and too good on the day. Congratulations to them on yet another Championship in their storied history.

A great result for the Pirates’ Colts in what was a must-win game. West Sydney Pirates 12 – Northern Sydney Rebels 6.

Cool conditions at Forestville where the Pirates Division 1 Team took on the Northern Sydney Rebels. The Pirates’ Defense was spending a lot of time on the field but the Pirates still held a 7-0 lead at the end of the 1st Quarter. At Halftime at Forestville and the Pirates lead the Rebels 15-6. A quick 3rd Quarter but the Pirates extended their lead. Score moved to Pirates 21 – Rebels 6.

An indifferent performance but it’s a win all the same. The score line was far too close but it’s still a win.
Pirates 21 defeated the Rebels 18.
Pirates now 9-0 and still #1.

UTS Gridiron

A tough day at the office for the Pirates’ Colts. Undermanned and with mounting injuries the Pirates were valiant in a 48-8 loss to a dominant UTS Gators team.

#1 taking on #2 as the Pirates took on the UTS Gators at Craik Park. It started as a defensive battle with the scores locked at 0-0 at the end of the 1st Quarter. This followed by an explosive 2nd Quarter with a Pirates’ TD followed by a UTS Kickoff Return for a score followed immediately by a Pirates’ Kickoff Return for a TD of their own! The Pirates added another score to make the lead 21-7 at the halftime break.

No scoring in the 3rd Quarter and the Pirates were still leading 21-7. A hectic final quarter with scores going both ways but the Pirates prevail again.

Pirates 33 – UTS 14.

Pirates sit at #1 with a 7-0 record.

Wollongong Mustangs

Cool and cloudy conditions at Lidcombe Oval where the Pirates Colts took on the Wollongong Mustangs Colts. At half-time the Pirates lead 14-0. A good outing for the Pirates Colts at Lidcombe Oval where they have beaten the Wollongong Mustangs Colts by 22-6.

The Pirates took on the Wollongong Mustangs in Week 6 of the Division 1 season. After an early score by the Mustangs the Pirates hit back to lead 7-6 at the end of the 1st Quarter. A defensive arm-wrestle for much of the 2nd Quarter but two quick scores saw the Pirates leading the Mustangs 20-6 at halftime. It’s been score for score in the 3rd Quarter but the Pirates retained the lead by 27-12. A really scrappy football game but another “W” for the Pirates. Pirates 33 – Wollongong Mustangs 20.
