BAFA Adult Flag MEC Division One – Week 5 review 
The Chorley Buccaneers Adult Flag team travelled to Warrington to play two division rivals, the Oldham Owls and Cheshire Cavaliers. 
With play-offs still in sight at the beginning of the day, the Bucs needed a big performance to secure the post-season in their first competitive season. 
The Bucs were in a shoot-out early on in the game but soon pulled ahead with 5 TD passes from Paul Mather to secure a 34 – 26 win against the Oldham Owls. With a very open game until the end, touchdown receptions from Neil Smith, Russ Bury and Dan Hill proved to be crucial as a collection of interceptions from Matt Linton, Jonathan Cuming and Lewis Wright sealed the game for the first win of the day.

The offence struggled to get going against the Cheshire Cavaliers and went into half-time behind with only one touchdown on the board. The Bucs turned it up in the second half going onto score two more touchdowns (Dan Hill and Jack Baker) as well as an impressive interception return for 2 points by Neil Smith, but it was too little too late as Cheshire secured their first win of the season with a final score of 22 – 30.

Going 1-1 on the day leaves the Bucs 5-6 on the season with two more games to play. The play-offs may be ruled out but the Bucs Adult flag team will want to finish their season with a winning record on home turf.
