AFI’s Recap of all the football action from Europe last weekend

With 10 games in six different countries, this was one of the busiest weekends yet in Europe so far this season.

The Polish Football League, Austrian Football League, Italian Division 1, Hungarian Football League, Denmark’s National League and Serbia’s top division were all in action with playoff berths on the line in at least two leagues. The weekend also marked the start of football in Denmark.

The Bydgoszcz Archers remained unbeaten in the Polish Football League with a 4-0 record after downing the visiting Bialystok Lowlanders 21-14 in the sixth weekend of play. With the win, the Archers move into undisputed possession of first place.

The defending Serbian champion Kragujevac Wild Boars made short work of the Novi Sad Wild Dogs, disposing of the home team 64-7. After giving up a first quarter touchdown to the Wild Dogs, Kragujevac scored 56 straight points to walk away with the win and improve their record to 2-1 in Serbia.

The Milano Seamen rebounded from a lopsided loss last week to the Swarco Raiders in Central European Football League action a week ago, to defeat the Lazio Ducks 35-21 in Rome and stay in second place in the Italian Division 1 standings.

Leading 35-21 at the end of the third period in Italy’s Division 1, the Ancona Dolphins withstood a furious fourth quarter comeback from the Firenze Guelfi and survived a bad snap on an extra point attempt to defeat the Guelfi 35-34 and pull ahead of Firenze in the standings.

The Krakow Kings improved their record to 2-2 in handing the Warsaw Eagles their fourth straight defeat in Polish Football League play, blanking the Eagles 28-0. The win was important to Krakow, as it keeps them in the hunt for a playoff berth.

In Austria, the Dacia Vienna Vikings came back from a two touchdown halftime deficit to outscore the Projekt Spielberg Graz Giants 42-35 in overtime for their fifth consecutive win and remain unbeaten in Austrian Football League play.

In a battle of crosstown rivals, the Budapest Wolves scored 18 unanswered, second half points to down the Budapest Cowbells 30-13 in the Hungarian Football League.

The SsangYong Danube Dragons simply had too much firepower for the Modling Rangers in Austrian Football League midseason action, running out to a 33-0 lead before the Rangers scored a late, fourth quarter touchdown to make the final score 33-7. The win pulled the Dragons  into third place in the standings with a 3-2 record.

The Copenhagen Towers kicked off the 2021 season with a solid 38-13 win over the visiting AaB 89ers from Aalborg in Danish National League action Saturday night in Denmark’s capital.

In Italy, the Parma Panthers proved why they are unbeaten and sit atop the standings in Italy’s Division 1 with a 6-0 record by whipping the Bologna Warriors 45-12 in Bologna, Italy.
