2016 Week 12

UWE Bullets 14 - 12 Cardiff Cobras

In the final week of the regular season, with the conference title already sewn up, Cardiff hosted Bristol aiming for a win to give them a rare perfect record. Forced once more to abandon Llanrumney due to weather, they travelled to Bristol's own home ground at Filton WISE to face a UWE side that started the season badly with 3 lossed and a forfeit, but that returned after the Christmas break to lodge 3 wins on the bounce. UWE, desperate to finish the season with an even 4-4 record, looking (as ever) to upset Cardiff, and also hoping to hang on to the chance of an unlikely but not impossible wildcard slot, started well scoring early in the game. They backed up a touchdown with a 2 point PAT conversion, and while there was still a lot of game to play, that action proved decicive. Cardiff followed with a score of their own, and when UWE scored just before half time, Cardiff struck back instantly with an 80 yard touchdown pass to go in just two points behind at the half.

The second half became a battle as Cardiff looked for ways to get ahead and Bristol repeatedly countered, but neather side could move the scoreboard and so UWE claimed their hard fought victory.

Cardiff end the season on 7-1 and with Portsmouth topping the Southern conference with an 8-0 record, go into the postseason as the 2nd seed in Division 1 South.
