The Warsaw Mets will be looking for their first win of the season when they host the Lowlanders but it will be a tough task with Bialystok playing solid football behind new quarterback Brandon Gwinner.

Warsaw opened the season with a 17-7 loss to the Bydgoszcz Archers and then were blanked 16-0 by the Silesia Rebels. The Lowlanders downed the Rebels 38-14 and defeated the Archers 49-24.

In the two losses, Warsaw has managed to score just one touchdown, and that was a defensive touchdown on a fumble return against the Bydgoszcz Archers. Mets quarterback TJ Richardson can be elusive but playing without any of the starting receivers from 2019 has hobbled the offense and Richardson has been trying to do it on his own. In the loss to the Falcons two weeks ago, the Mets could not advance past midfield pretty much the entire game. Richardson did rush for 74 yards but had only 39 yards passing.

Meanwhile, Bialystok is coming off a 49-24 win over the Archers and new quarterback Brandon Gwinner looked impressive in the win. He threw for three touchdowns and ran for another three in the victory. Wide receiver Rafal Krowlewski hauled in two touchdown passes (85 yds, 37 yds) while Antoni Podgorski caught the other on a 44 yard play. Running back Glen Toonga added a 27 yards touchdown.

On defense, newly added defensive back Tommy Kaczocha made his presence known with an interception which led to the game’s final touchdown by Toonga.

Warsaw will be playing in front of their home crowd which hopefully will help, but will be facing a Lowlanders team that seems to be on a roll.
