Titans Maintain Reign of Dominance over Cobras

Little more than two weeks after the National Challenge Trophy triumph the Swansea Titans were back on the gridiron. This time it was for Varsity and their fixture against the Cardiff Cobras.

In fact, the Cobras last game was way back in February against the Titans. The score in the regular season ended 30-0. There were no doubts over who were the favorites. However, the Cobras powerful defense matched up well against the skillful Swansea offense, which gave the home side some hope of keeping the game close.

The game began with an electrifying kick return from Swansea’s star playmaker Marcus Wyatt. Wyatt was in the game again as Captain and Quarterback Simon George connected with the wide receiver on an 18-yard pass, which Wyatt took up the sideline and into the endzone for the game’s first score. The Titan’s defense quickly shutout the lackluster Cardiff offense and got Wyatt and company back on the field.

Rookie running back Jacob Amadi burst through the line for a big gain, which resulted in a Swansea field goal and stout defense from Swansea gave them a chance before half-time. Wide receiver Ayekhele Loek Okomilo snaffled another pass in the endzone to put the Titans up 15-0 at the half.

Going into the second half the story was much the same. The Cobras big front seven was shutting down the Titans running game but their passing game was going nicely. On the other side of the ball Swansea continued to dominate Cardiff who just could not move the ball. Two more touchdowns in the second half came, one more reception for Wyatt and a rushing touchdown for the quarterback saw the score bump up to 27-0.

The Titans then won their Varsity for the second year in a row to cap off an exceptional year. The team got its just rewards as it won Swansea University’s Sports Team of the Year award, which was a particularly special moment for influential head coach Nick Keyse. Keyse set up the club as a student and it would appear to be a fine reward for a man who has put so much time into Swansea University sports.
