LIVESTREAM Finland: UNC Crusaders @ Kotka Eagles Aug. 5, 17:30 CET, (5:30 pm, 11:30 am ET)

The Kotka Eagles will host the UNC Crusaders as these two teams meet for the second and final time this season. Last time out the Crusaders won an exciting game in Lohja. Now Kotka hopes to get a win and celebrate a victory in front of their home crowd for the first time this season. 

Former Central Michigan and Austin Peay quarterback Darrien Boone continues to lead Kotka under center after joining the team three weeks ago. Boone is a good athlete who is still building chemistry with his new team. Expect him to target Peter Anderson early and often as he’s been the go-to guy for Kotka all season. Last week the two connected for 123 yards. Anderson has proven to be an exciting player this season making several highlight catches. Last week he even threw a touchdown as this Kotka team shows signs of life.

The Crusaders have had a tough season to this point. However, they do have the ability to change the game with speedy receivers like Cedric Johnson, along with Miles and Nolan CorpeningBoth Corpening brothers have stepped in and made big plays on offense, defense, and special teams this season making big plays. 

With the Maple League not relegating any teams next year, both the Crusaders and Eagles are not in danger of dropping to the 1st division.
