LIVESTREAM Poland: Tychy Falcons @ Silesia Rebels, Sept. 20, 16:30 CET (10:30 ET)

The Polish Liga Futbolu Amerykańskiego, LFA, rolls into its third weekend of play in this shortened 2020 season Sunday, September 20 when the 0-2 Silesia Rebels play host to the 1-1 Tychy Falcons.

The last time these two teams faced each other was in 2018 when the Falcons came away with a comfortable 41-0 win.

Both teams have suffered lopsided defeats at the hands of the Wroclaw Panthers. 

Silesia was beaten in their first game of the year by the Lowlanders 38-14 and then was soundly thrashed 52-7 by the powerful Wroclaw Panthers. The Falcons were also beaten badly by Wroclaw  (52-0) but rebounded last week to defeat the Warsaw Mets 16-0.

Tychy Falcons @ Silesia Rebels, Sept. 20, 16:30 CET (10:30 ET)

Silesia Rebels British quarterback Ashley Bailey looked impressive at times in the team’s opening game loss to Bialystok. He threw for 206 yards and one touchdown (20 yards) in that game while rushing for 101 yards and scoring the other touchdown for the Rebels. Against the Panthers defense it was tougher and the Silesia offense wasn’t able to find the end zone until late in the contest with the score 52-0. Bailey connected with Devion Young for the game’s final touchdown. However, that combination along with the running of British running back Courtney Ettiene, could be the difference in this game.

The Tychy Falcons had to work hard in their 16-0 win over Warsaw but the combination of quarterback Niklas Gorny and receiver Rashad Still was a constant threat. Add to that the running of Adrian Binek and Jan Szwej and the Rebels defense will be under some pressure. The Falcons defense held Warsaw to 138 yards of offense, almost all of it inside the Mets half of the field. If they can keep Bailey bottled up the way they did TJ Richardson last week, they will have a chance of winning this game.
