LIVESTREAM Sweden: Stockholm Mean Machines @ Örebro Black Knights, June 19, 15:00 CET (3 pm, 09:00 am ET)

The Stockholm Mean Machines (1-0) will visit the Örebro Black Knights (1-0) in a highly anticipated Swedish Superserien matchup. Both teams are coming off of impressive wins and are heading into week two with confidence.

Mean Machines quarterback Brett Hunchak played well in his Swedish debut as Stockholm defeated the defending champion Carlstad Crusaders. Hunchak was efficient, often finding veteran receiver Mattew Retzlaff. Look for Retzlaff to have another big game as Hunchak seems to trust the veteran route runner. Against a young Orebro defensive line expect a heavy dose of running back Timmy Göransson. Göransson will run hard behind a strong offensive line as the Mean Machine aim to bully Örebro at the line of scrimmage.

Defensively, former Schwabish Hall Unicorns defenders Alexander Kress and Nikolas Knoblauch were crucial for the Mean Machines in their win last week. Knoblauch delivered a few big hits helping ignite the limited Stockholm crowd. This week Knoblauch, fellow linebacker Henrik Ridder, and the Mean Machine defense will be matched up with Örebro’s National team running back Kasper Wedberg and a passing attack that looked in sync in their season opener.

The Black Knights opened their season with an impressive 49-0 win over the Uppsala 86ers. Quarterback Trevor Vasey was able to spread the ball around while Orebro cruised to the easy win. This week the Black Knights will be facing a much tougher defense that has championship experience.

The Black Knights defense, is led by Eric Murphey. The veteran defensive back has a reputation around Sweden as a sure tackler and great coverage corner. This week, expect defensive end Ali Chakkour to play well as he will try and pressure Stockholm’s new athletic quarterback.

The Örebro Black Knights are eager to prove to Superserien fans that they belong in the same category as Stockholm and Carlstad as true title contenders. This week they will have a chance to prove it against the undefeated Mean Machines.
