CEFL: Serbia’s Kragujevac Wild Boars defeat Russian champions the Moscow Patriots

The Kragujevac Wild Boars kept their CEFL Bowl hopes alive Saturday as they defeated the Moscow Patriots 34-20 at “Sušica” stadium in Kragujevac, Serbia.

With the win, Kragujevac can still reach the CEFL Bowl if Moscow beats the Koc Rams from Turkey on May 12 by 21 points or less.

Wild Boars quarterback Dalton Oliver threw four touchdown passes and ran one in himself. Wide receiver Strahinja Stepovic caught three of those touchdown passes while running back Joshua Quezada caught the fourth. Matija Almashi kicked four of five extra points.

Quezada opened the scoring on the game’s first drive, finishing it with a three yard run.

Moscow equalized in the second quarter with Chernolutsky plunging in from the one yard line with Nikolai Golovač  kicking the extra point.

Oliver found Stepovic on a beautiful 53 yard pass and run to give Kragujevac the lead again, 14-7. This time Strokov capped a long Moscow drive with a one yard run to even the score at 14-14.

The Wild Boars opened the second half with Oliver marching his team to the Moscow 35 yard line and then connecting with Stepovic again to extend the lead to 28-14. The Patriots struck back early in the fourth quarter as again Chernolutsky  found the end zone, this time from a yard out to narrow the lead to 28-20.

Oliver went back to his favorite target to secure the win hitting Stepovic as he got in behind the Patriots secondary and raced 55 yards for the game’s final score.
