ELF: Red-hot Frankfurt Galaxy travel to face Paris Musketeers

Sunday will see the 5-1 Frankfurt Galaxy make the trip to Paris to face the 2-5 Musketeers in the return fixture of the week four matchup between the two European League of Football Western teams.

The previous matchup saw the Galaxy dominate the Musketeers through four quarters, coming out with a 30-13 victory.

Frankfurt are coming off their fifth straight win in which they edged the Hamburg Sea Devils 17-14 at home with a fourth quarter field goal. The week seven matchup saw the return of quarterback Jakeb Sullivan following his week one injury, and he was anything but eased back into the game plan, completing 31 of 57 passes for 281 yards and two scores with one interception. Reece Horn had another key performance, catching nine passes for 81 yards, a touchdown and a two-point conversion.

The Musketeers have had a very different story, coming off two straight losses, the most recent coming against the Rhein Fire. Although the Fire walked away from Paris with a win, the Musketeers managed to give Rhein one of their toughest games yet, keeping the score close until the final quarter.

Quarterback Zach Edwards sits fifth in passing yards and fourth in touchdowns, and the offense as a whole has seen great development over recent weeks. Along with American wide receiver Kyle Sweet, who constantly performs at a high level, Florian Larose has been making a name for himself in the ELF, consistently bringing down jump balls, catching three touchdowns in his last three games.

Defensively, the Galaxy have performed calibers above the Musketeers, conceding 21.3 points per game in comparison to Paris‘ 29.7 points. 

Frankfurt will look to sweep the Musketeers in Paris to continue their win streak, while Paris will attempt once again to establish themselves within the league.
