With no Shamrock Bowl Conference controversy to overshadow it, the IAFL-1 got the full glory this weekend as two close, competitive matches gave fans plenty to enjoy!
Waterford Wolves 20-12 Meath Bulldogs
The Wolves welcomed the in form Meath Bulldogs to Waterford but would send them away rueing missed chances and mistakes as the home side snatched the win in the dying seconds of the game. In poor conditions all scores were scored on the ground as both teams abandoned the air attack in favour of the run.
A tight first half was split only by a long Eddie McMahon rushing score and Meath took a 6-0 lead in to half time. The quarterback grabbed another rushing score in the second half but it would be the Wolves that would be celebrating at the end of the game.
