Final Score: Greendell Falcons 39-22 Bristol Academy Pride
The Greendell Falcons from Canada won the Gathering Bowl by a score of 39-22 on front of an enthusiastic crowd of nearly 2,500 at Tallaght Stadium.
Both teams rose to the occasion putting on a wonderful display of skillful football in what was a very entertaining high scoring game. Greendell receiver Bryce LeBlanc was named the games MVP.
Just before kick-off, the American football community played tribute to IAFA Board Member Terry Lynch, who sadly passed away the previous evening.
Mayor of South Dublin Dermot Looney presented the winning team with the Gathering Bowl Cup and congratulated everyone involved. ‘’I am delighted we have two visiting international teams and visitors here today at Tallaght Stadium. South Dublin is Ireland’s premier business, sport and leisure destination."
Alan Orr, Irish American Football Association Communications Officer said "We were delighted to host two international teams from two different backgrounds as part of the Gathering Bowl. We were overwhelmed by the crowd that attended the match and embraced the sport of American Football."
