Buccaneers endured another torrid outing in their final Ulster Bank League Division 1B fixture of the season when soundly walloped 45-0 by Ballymena at Eaton Park, on Saturday. The Pirates were well and truly sunk on the banks of the Braid by a pacier, sharper, and much better organised home side. For the second successive match, Buccs failed to score during another disappointing display.
Buccaneers’ home form woes continued at Dubarry Park when they shipped a 43-6 hiding to Belfast Harlequins in their Ulster Bank League Division 1B game played in testing windy conditions on Saturday. With neither promotion nor relegation to stimulate the mid-table Pirates, they were always likely to struggle against Quins - who although just one place behind Buccs were not quite free from fears of dropping into the dreaded relegation dogfight and, consequently, had the greater motivation for this tie. The northerners scored seven tries in what was their best display in the league to date.
Despite the stiff and swirling chilly breeze, a decent crowd attended in Crowley Park where Galwegians came from behind for a thoroughly deserved 12-6 victory over Buccaneers to maintain their one point advantage on the leaderboard of Division 1B of the Ulster Bank League.
A late scoring blitz by Buccaneers earned them a bonus point 25-7 victory over Shannon in their Ulster Bank League Division 1B game at Dubarry Park, Athlone on Saturday. The game between two youthful sides was still in the balance entering the final quarter with the Pirates deservedly 10-0 ahead before the final scoring salvo stunned the visitors.
Buccaneers defeated Galwegians 28-14 in a lively Connacht Senior Cup final played at Galway Sportsground last Sunday. Buccs were full value for their double score victory played on a cool but mainly bright afternoon in front of a modest attendance. Both squads did not have the use of contracted players, but the teams put in a committed, absorbing, and entertaining battle for the coveted trophy which makes a long overdue return to the Midlands.
Buccaneers were especially generous leaking three tries in a 23-8 Ulster Bank League Division 1B defeat against Ballymena at Dubarry Park, Athlone, on Saturday. This win strengthened the Northerners’ promotion push as they sit in second place in the league table. It also ensured the hosts' miserable home form continues as only one win has been posted to date this season. Ironically, the Pirates have lost just once on their travels, and they stay in fifth place in the standings.
