LIVESTREAM Switzerland: Calanda Broncos @ Winterthur Warriors. June 26, 18:00 CET (6 pm, 12 noon ET)

The defending Swiss champion Calanda Broncos will visit the Winterthur Warriors today in Switzerland’s top league, the National Liga A.

These two teams met twice during the Swiss Fall Cup back in October with Calanda coming out on top both times, 6-0 and 21-0. Both squads are seen as top contenders for this year’s Swiss Bowl.

The Calanda Broncos offense features former Georgia State (NCAA D1) quarterback Conner Manning. Manning will look to target receiver Max Gray as this offense revolves around the dynamic duo. Swiss receiver Adrian Sunderhauf is also expected to make some big plays this season as the speedy receiver has been a great deep threat in the past. In the backfield, Erik Rageth is a physical running back that will look to have a big day behind the Broncos experienced offensive line.

Defensively, the Broncos are coming off of a shutout victory over the Geneva Seahawks last week, 31-0. Look for Max Gray to step in on defense at times if needed. Broncos veterans Elio Tempini, Marco Mahrer, and Lorenzo Bargähr are eager to continue the team’s defensive momentum today.

The Winterthur Warriors are coming off of a 32-0 victory over the Zurich Renegades. Swiss quarterback Richard Wartmann will look to target receivers Julia Strimer and Alexander Meier. In the backfield, running back Cedric Peter provides Wartmann with a good option in the running game. Massive offensive lineman Paul Henry Minzeni leads the Warriors up front against a fierce Broncos defensive line.

The Warriors defense will need to be able and stop the run against a physical Broncos rushing attack. Defensive linemen Jean Pierre Stadler and Eitienne Leinert look to hold their gaps and disrupt the Broncos offense. Linebacker Jimmy Wissekerke and defensive back Ralph Stutz are eager to prove themselves against the defending champs.

Expect the Broncos to run the ball as they try to physically dominate a smaller Winterthur team. The Warriors will have to play above their weight class to pull off the upset and shake up Switzerland’s National Liga A.
