[tps_title]Around the Continent[/tps_title]


Germany - Kiel v Adler2


Kiel Baltic Hurricanes quarterback Blake Bolles broke a club record throwing for 455 yards and six touchdowns in a 43-28 defeat of the Berlin Adler in Berlin. The Braunschweig NY Lions played everyone it seemed in pounding the 58-7. The Lions racked up over 500 yards in offense compared to  100 for the Düsseldorf Panther in the rout. Quarterback Evan Landi now appears to be the starter for Braunschweig as Grant Enders injury would seem to be more serious that originally thought. Landi threw for 236 yards but the team rushed for 268 yards. The Hamburg Huskies find themselves in second place in the North after edging the Berlin Rebels 19-17.


In a battle of two undefeated teams the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns taught the upstart Allgäu Comets a lesson as quarterback Marco Ehrenfried threw for almost 400 yards and four touchdowns in downing the Comets 40-14. Stuttgart Scorpions quarterback Tom Schneider had 280 yards passing and three touchdowns along with 80 yards rushing and another touchdown as the Scorpions beat up on the hapless Rhein-Neckar Bandits 53-7. The Saarland Hurricanes kept the Marburg Mercenaries out of the win column beating them 27-17. The Munich Cowboys then defeated the Franken Knights 24-7.

Great Britain

Great Britain - Jets v. Rams


The visiting Tamworth Phoenix handed the Lancashire Wolverines their first loss of the season in beating them 17-10. Then the Coventry Jets defeated the Yorkshire Rams 27-14.

The Phoenix now sit in first with a 3-0 record followed by Lancashire (3-1) and East Kilbride at 2-1.


The two heavyweights were in action in the South as the London Blitz, fresh from qualifying for the IFAF Europe Champions League Final Four overwhelmed the Bristol Aztecs 52-12. Then the London Warriors traveled to Wales and handed the South Wales Warriors a 49-0 shellacking.

The Warriors and Blitz are tied at 3-0 with the Warriors first by virtue of a slightly better points differential. The London Olympians are third at 2-2.


Holland - Alphen v Arnhem

The Alphen Eagles improved their record to 7-1 in defeating the Group A rivals the Arnhem Falcons 14-7. The win gives the Eagles a leg up on the Falcons as they had beaten them a month ago 21-20. In the only other game, the Amsterdam Crusaders battered the last place Lightning Leiden 59-0.

The Eagles remain in first place in Group A  with a 7-1 record ahead of the Arnhem Falcons now at 6-2. The Crusaders have a stranglehold on first in Group B with a 7-1 record.
