Around the Continent: Roger’s Corner – 6/17/14

Czech Republic

In Czech league action, the Prague Black Panthers (Europe #10) dispatched the Brno Alligators 57-20 in the second game of the weekend for them. They had played the Danube Dragons in the Austrian league the day before. You have to call that a tough schedule. Two games in two days! And they are still ranked in Europe’s Top 20. They remain undefeated and in first in the Czech league. The second place Prnobram Bobcats (5-1) defeated the Trnava Bulldogs (fourth) 34-27 while the Prague Lions rolled over the Stallions 35-0.
