BIG6 EUROBOWL Tournament: Braunschweig and Frankfurt again in the final
As in the previous year, the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions and the Samsung Frankfurt Universe prevailed in the battle for their entry into the EUROBOWL XXXII.
The Lions won their home game in the Eintracht Stadium in front of over 2,000 spectators more than clearly with 60: 0 against the Amsterdam Crusaders and entered the final. Already in the first quarter the defending champion made clear that the EUROBOWL can only run on him and led after three touchdowns with 21-0. It was even clearer in the second quarter, which the Lions could decide for themselves with 28-0 and went with a 49-0 result into the break.
In the second half, the Lions calmed down and scored another eleven points, leaving nothing to count for the Crusaders.
Frankfurt reaches EUROBOWL
The opponent in the final will be as last year the Samsung Frankfurt Universe. The hosts won surprisingly clear with 48-06 against Flash La Courneuve. Two weeks ago, the French still had the reigning champion, the New Yorker Lions, on the verge of defeat and lost only very badly with 6-10. In Frankfurt, however, there was nothing to get for the challengers.
After the first quarter and a 17-0 lead for the hosts, it was basically already decided who will reach the final next to the Lions. The French team had to decide the game on the basis of the result of the first game day with 17 points difference for themselves.
After the 24-0 at halftime, the fans of the Hesse could then celebrate three more touchdowns of their team in the third quarter, while Flash brought only six points on the scoreboard. In the last section of the game, both teams took it a bit easier, only Frankfurt increased the result with a field goal.
In the EUROBOWL XXXII on the weekend of 9th/10th of June it comes now to a renewed meeting of the Braunschweig New Yorker Lions and Samsung Frankfurt Universe. In the same constellation, the Lions won their third European title in a row last year.
