Portugal - Mutts v. Sharks


 The quarterfinals kicked off this past weekend. The Porto Mutts who finished first in the North made mincemeat of the Algarve Sharks in the first quarterfinal with a 102-0 shellacking. Then the Lisbon Crusaders, second in the South were to take on the Paredes Lumberjacks, third place in the North but the game was postponed pending a ruling by the Portuguese American Football Association.


Romania - Rebels v Monsters2

It was a week of lopsided victories in Romania. The Timisoara 89ers destroyed the Resita Locomotives  61-0 while the Bucharest Rebels overwhelmed the Mures Monsters  54-7.

The Russian league kicked off with eight teams in action. The Podolsk Knights beat the Moscow Black Storm 27-0 in the season opener. The Moscow Spartans beat up on the Moscow Dragons 34-0. In a weekend of blank scores the St. Petersburg Griffins whipped the  Jaroslavl Rebels 38-0. And in the only win over a team that scored, Moscow United beat the St. Petersburg North Legion 14-6.
