At first the Wolves defense did not leave any place to run for the Silverhawks, so Silverhawks HC Rok Štamcar went with a passing attack. This led the Silverhawks into the red zone, where Ljubljana Rok Sedej scored a touchdown on a speed option. Aleš Zakšek was successful on a PAT.

The Silverhawks defense continued to stop the Wolves and forced them to punt several times, and their offense had continue successful mixing up the run and passing strategy. In second quarter Jason Lee Kramer threw to Eugen Sumič for touchdown, while in the third he ran for one. Kramer added an TD when he passed to Bojan Justin in the fourth quarter. Backup quarterback Matic Tomše put the final score 0-41 with a designed QB run.

After the game Jason Lee Kramer said,

“I felt great today. I was very nervous to start the game, but after a few plays my nerves settled down and I wasn’t thinking about anything but playing the game. I am blessed with great teammates who supported me all game and made the game come real easy. The offensive line, receivers and running back on offense took all the pressure of me. I just had to get them the ball, and they made me look good. Defensively the game was won in the trenches: the defensive line never gave them a shot and freed up all of the linebackers to make easy tackles.”
