For Potsdam, David Austin Gahafer had a good day throwing the ball as well completing 22 of 42 passes for 302 yards and three touchdowns, but he was picked off twice. the second time late in the game which sealed the win for Dresden. Danish receiver Frederik Myrup Nielsen made life difficult for the Monarchs secondary though with nine receptions for 154 yards and a touchdown.

This could be one of the best games of the week in Germany.
