It’s been a good week for many of our sides while the Hull Pirates brought their season to a close. There was also a major shock this weekend that no one saw coming. Here is this weeks roundup.
It’s fair to say its been a great weekend for our football sides. The shock of the weekend involved North Ferriby United. The Villagers were 16/1 underdogs travelling to title challengers Forest Green Rovers. Ferriby defied the odds with a brilliant display and a goal from Reece Thompson.
Hull City also claimed a massive result as they came from behind to beat West Ham at the KCOM Stadium. Goals from Andy Robertson and Andrea Ranocchia gave Marco Silva’s side a precious 3 points. Swansea, Sunderland and Middlesbrough all dropped points this weekend so City will look to capitalise on that when they welcome Middlesbrough to the KCOM Stadium on Wednesday.
Hall Road had another good result this weekend as they won 3-1 away at Dronfield but Hull City Ladies lost again this time 5-3 at home to Chester-le-street Ladies.
Hull FC had a frustrating weekend. They raced into a 20-8 lead over the winless Warrinton Wolves. Albert Kelly was again instrumental as he scored the first try but Hull ran out of steam again in the second half and ended up clinging on to draw 22-22.
Hull KR were comfortable winners once again this week. They hammered the Batley Bulldogs 50-16 at Craven Park. Rovers are coasting their way towards the Middle 8’s with little issue as they look for an immediate return to Super League.
Our amateur teams also enjoyed a good weekend. The only Hull based side to lose were Myton but that was to another Hull side Skirlaugh. West Hull were 22-11 winners at home to Wigan St Patricks while Hull Dockers won a tight game at home to York Acorn 22-20.
The run of good results this weekend extended to our Rugby Union side. Hull Ionians were 31-26 winners at home to Cambridge and Hullensians won comfortably 35-25 against Acklam. The Result of the weekend came from Hull RUFC who were 48-14 winners at home to Sandal RUFC.
Unfortunately the disappointing playoff series continued for the Hull Pirates this weekend as they rounded off their season with 2 more defeats. They took the Swindon Wildcats to overtime on Saturday night only to lose 6-5. They finished their season with a 6-2 home defeat to Milton Keynes Lightning. After a positive start to the season the campaign has ended badly and the Pirates now have to look to build for next season.
