Around the Continent: Roger’s Corner – 7/2/14


The Thonon-les-bains Black Panthers (Europe #6) won their second straight French championship in dramatic fashion surviving a scare from Molosses D’Asnieres-sur-seine to squeak by them 35-34. The game was thrilling to say the least. Read the recap here:



North: There were two games played in the Northern division in Germany. The Braunschweig New Yorker Lions (Europe #1) played the Dresden Monarchs (Europe #5) and looked impressive in winning 42-30. This was a battle between two of the top teams in Europe and was fun to watch. Then the Berlin Adler (Europe #2) took on the Cologne Falcons (Europe #14), again two top teams and came out with a 38-27 victory. Braunschweig still leads the North at 4-0, followed by the Berlin Adler (3-1), the Dresden Monarchs (3-2) and Kiel (3-3) with Dresden, Kiel and Cologne in second, third and fourth. But the Berlin Adler who have only played three games and are in fifth, are a factor.

South: The Schwabisch Hall Unicorns (Europe #13) are marching. They had another impressive day on offense amassing 572 yards (250 rushing of which 212 came from the legs of tailback Marcus Sims) to destroy the Rhein-Neckar Bandits 55-33. The undefeated Stuttgart Scorpions (Europe #8) also put on an offensive display rushing for a total of 402 yards and amassing 629 yards of offense to defeat the Franken Knights 55-28. The Scorpions are undefeated at 7-0 and lead the South, with the Unicorns second at 5-2. The Marburg Mercenaries and Munich Cowboys round out the top four in the South.
