29.04.2009 La Courneuve Flash
Flash win capitals’ duel.
Intensity : 3 Flash defensive units interceptions (Ajdir#1, Couton#10, Hamoudi#2’s one for a 21 yard Touchdown which sealed the game’s destiny. Flash defensive plan worked well all game long as far as running game is concerned. The main Berlin’s threat Rb#22 was not able to show off his skills.12 yards only...
Flash offense game plan worked well, too. Relying on his powerful running game as a main weapon, Marceline#28, Allen#27, Dume#15, Kancel#21, could launch Flash train to his destination : Vienna(Austria). This turnover of Running backs confused a lot the massive Berlin defensive line. Marceline, Rb#28 scored one.
The passing game made of screen passes, curls patterns clicked perfectly when Welsh Qb#13 threw the ball to his Wrs Soumah#9, Delaval#11, Monney#19, Fleury#86, Te Anglo#89. 3 passing touchdowns : 2 of Soumah, 1 of monney, (the moneytime guy form now on….)
Qb Grant#12, due to pressure, threw long distance Tds (2)which restarted Adler’s engine many times, but it wasn’t enough for winning the game.
Emotion : Flash kicker failures , one field goal and two extra points missed could not give enough points ahead to let Public relieved, which supported his favourite team with ardour, then.
- Too many faults where whistled (10) which prevent Flash to get rewarded earlier in the game.
- Adlers athletes never gave up all game long, a relentless defense was rewarded by an interception made by #41, which gave the lead to Berlin in the second half. ‘Grant#12 scored a few plays later)
- It was the first time in Eurobowl history Flash won versus a german team. It happened in the 25th year celebration week end.
- Suspens : All game long both teams could have won, but at the end of 2nd and fourth quarters, Esume’s boys scored to keep the lead. At the end of the second quarter, with three timeouts left, and 51 yards to reach the end zone, Flash made it with a pefect « maestria » and 5 consecutive completed passes.
At the end of the fourth quarter, with a draw Berlin could have flown to Austria. But from his own 24 and less than 2 minutes before the end,Flash offense made an other perfect drive. First,Allen #27 ran the ball to get the 31 Adler’s yards. 8 seconds left, and Welsh with a soft throw found Monney#19 in the corner of the end zone. That was the end (31/24) since a personal fault in the last Grant’s throw stopped definitely Berlin hopes.

Flash offense : total yards 399 Berlin : total yards : 222
Running yards : 151 yards running yards 12
