LIVESTREAM Denmark: Copenhagen Towers @ Søllerød Gold Diggers, June 19, 14:00 CET (2 pm, 08:00 am ET)

The Søllerød Gold Diggers (1-0) will host the Copenhagen Towers (2-0) in this Danish Nationalligaen matchup, Saturday, June 19.

Both teams entered 2021 as favorites for the Mermaid Bowl title and have not disappointed winning their first matchups convincingly.

The Towers offense has been exciting to watch as quarterback Randall Schreoder has spread the ball around to playmakers Anton Witmeur, Magnus Jensen, and Jakob green. The experienced offensive line paired with excellent decision making from Schroeder makes this Copenhagen offense a tough one to stop. This week they’ll face off against a talented Søllerød defense that should be able to pressure Schroeder and make the pocket passer uncomfortable.

On defense, Copenhagen’s veteran unit has played well through two games as defensive lineman Magnus Larsen has been terrorizing opposing quarterbacks. In the secondary Jakob Baekgaard and Kenneth Larsen-Ledetand match up well against the Søllerød’ speed.

The Gold Diggers have a revamped defense that brings back defensive end Logan Dykstra, a 2020 Danish League All-star while adding speedy linebacker Sam Taylor. The two Americans along with veteran Danish linebacker Jimi Laursen expect to be able to contain the Towers potent offense.

Søllerød’s new quarterback, Aaron Ellis has been aided by an array of weapons as receivers Thomas Ashworth and Fredrick Oldenberg make for a dangerous duo on the outside. Running backs Christian Vahl and Edu Molina have been productive as this offense played well in their only game so far this season. The battle in the trenches will be one too watch today as both teams lines are evenly matched.

Look this to be a great game between two teams that consider themselves title contenders. Many fans predicted this matchup to be the 2021 Mermaid bowl as both teams’ rosters are filled with talent, experience, and a burning desire to be champions.
