The Edinburgh Wolves secured a place in the play-offs with an impressive 69-0 away win against the Aberdeen Roughnecks in their final game of the regular BAFA National League season.

The Capital American football side made the trip north knowing that they would have to keep Aberdeen scoreless if they were to keep their season alive.

They got on the board quickly, with Stuart Harrison scoring the first of his four receiving touchdowns.

When Jon Young delivered a devastating sack to the Aberdeen quarterback, Stuart Galloway ran untouched in to the endzone to make it 14-0. Lloyd Dignan then set a new Wolves record when he scored a 97-yard TD, while Harrison and Galloway both added touchdowns before the break to give the Wolves a 40-0 half-time lead.

In the second half, Andrew Maciver ran in a score, before Dignan added his second and Harrison getting his fourth receiving touchdown.

With the game all but over, line backer Calum Buchan stepped into the quarterback position and ran in a 35-yard touchdown.
