Wembley Stallions are hoping to make home advantage count when they host Portsmouth Dreadnoughts in the BAFA SFC2 semi-finals on Sunday.

Stallions are the top seed in the semi-finals, with Dreadnoughts seeded fourth.

The match begins at 2pm on Sunday at Hussain Close, with entry costing £2, though under-18s go free.

Wembley made it into the semi-finals last weekend with a 27-0 success against Hertfordshire Cheetahs.

After a tough opening exchange both defences looked solid.

The first score came in the last play of the first quarter when Junior Ejehu found the edge and ran in for the touchdown, before Nick Glenday added the extras to put Stallions head 7-0.

As time ticked on, the game was still up for grabs, and with the semi-final place at stake, tension filled the air.

The next two quarters were scoreless with both defences making it tough.

Early in the fourth quarter, the tension eased as Wembley stamped their authority.

After another drive that led to a punt, Stallions pegged Cheetahs back, starting their drive from the two-yard line.

With their backs against the wall, Wembley were able to pile on the pressure, culminating in Tevin Tom intercepting a pass and running in for a touchdown. Glenday added the extras to double Stallions’ lead to 14-0.

Wembley turned the screw with a fumble recovery during Cheetahs’ next drive, causing a fumble to be recovered by the home side’s Matt Gibson.

Using as much time as possible, Stallions’ offence moved up field, ending in a touchdown pass to Charlie Douglas, putting Wembley Stallions firming in the driving seat at 20-0.

With Cheetahs pushing to get onto the scoresheet, they made it into the red zone for the first time in the game.

However, they were picked off by Seb Pettican, who ran 80 yards to touchdown, as Glenday added the extras to finish the scoring.
