Allgäu Comets QB completes 91% of passes as Flying Circus on full display, WRs have field day

The Allgäu Comets and quarterback Justin Sottilare along with this receivers are on a roll. After a disappointing opening loss to the  Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns, the Comets “Flying Circus” is, well, flying.

The Comets defeated the Stuttgart Scorpions 56-14 with Sottilare & Co. putting on a throwing and catching clinic.

Sottilare, who set records the week before by attempting 84 passes in Allgäu’s win over the Ingolstadt Dukes, was throwing passes with surgical precision against Stuttgart, and in just over a half of football completed 29 of 32 passes (91%) for 508 yards and seven touchdowns. His backup, Calvin Stitt took over in the third quarter and threw for 61 yards and another touchdown.

The Comets receivers definitely had a fund day. The two Belgian receivers, Martin Emos (10 catches, 200 yards) and Féli Manokai (4 catches, 94 yds) had what might be called “breakout games” as each caught two touchdown passes. Jordan Paul caught eight passes for 131 yards and a touchdown while Jonatan Gihl caught seven for 85 and a touchdown. Spencer Cutlan hauled in two touchdown passes as well.  And , according to head coach Stan Bedwell, apart from two errant snaps, the Comets offensive line played superb football.

Interestingly, the Scorpions outrushed Allgäu by a wide margin, 123 yards to -32.  Fabian Weigel and David Kovakevic scored touchdowns for Stuttgart.

These two teams meet again in two weeks in Stuttgart. While Allgäu is idle this week, the Scorpions have another tough game as they face the unbeaten Frankfurt Universe on May 26.
