Today, Swedish defending champion the Carlstad Crusaders travel to Limhamn, outside of Malmo in the south of Sweden, to face the Limhamn Griffins in an interesting battle.
Although the Crusaders overwhelmed the Griffins in last year’s matchup 69-7, Limhamn is now a second year team while Carlstad just fired their head coach replacing him with Malik Jackson.
The game will feature two Swedish quarterbacks. Anders Hermodsson led the Swedish Super Series in 2014 in passing yardage while Griffin’s quarterback Hampus Kristensson finished seventh on the list. Nevetheless, Kristensson improved as the year progressed last season in his first year in the top league in Sweden.
Griffin head coach John Trana is in his second year at the helm of the team. Their first game was against the year’s newcomers, the Vasteras Roedeers, and gave him an opportunity to have a good look at his team as they won comfortably 27-9. Meanwhile, the Crusaders struggled against Uppsala last week scoring only 14 points, all in the first half, in beating the 86ers 14-7. Carlstad averaged 60 points a game in 2014.
