LIVESTREAM Germany: Ravensburg Razorbacks @ Marburg Mercenaries, June 20, 16:00 CET (4 pm, 10:00 am ET)

The Marburg Mercenaries (1-1) will host the Ravensburg Razorbacks (1-1) in one of two games today in the GFL South. Both teams are still building chemistry and developing their identities as they’ve shown different play styles through two games.

The Razorbacks thrilling 27-26 win at home last weekend was their first victory in Germany’s top league in the team’s history. The hometown fans cheered wildly as the Cowboys two point conversion failed giving Ravensburg this historic victory. Razorback’s quarterback Ryan Deal, receiver Michael Mayer, and tight end Ryan Smith give this offense a passing game that can torch opponents. On the ground, 220 pound running back Lennies Mcferren brings change of pace as his low center of gravity and strong running style help the Razorbacks offense move this sticks and control the clock. Today, Mcferren is  matched up against former division one linebacker Robert Heyward. These two physical players should produce some high impact collisions in the run game.

The Ravensburg defense features pass rushers Jeremy Conley and Stanley Zeregbe. If these two can get to Marburg’s quarterback Sonny Weishaupt they should be able to slow down this Marburg offense.

Marburg’s defense is led by the aforementioned Heyward who has made 18 tackles through his first two games in Germany. Behind him, experienced defensive back Rueben de Ruyter brings leadership, communication, and versatility.

German quarterback Sonny Weishaupt played efficiently in his last outing. Going 16 of 24 for 197 yards and two touchdowns. Former Appalachian State (NCAA D1 FCS) running back Marcus Cox made his debut for Marburg last week and averaged an eye popping 8.8 yards per carry on the way to a 193 yards and three scores. Look for The Mercenaries to feed the former NCAA All-American again today.

After disappointing season openers, these two teams bounced back and won. Now they face each other in what could be an important game for playoff position down the stretch.
