In handing the Black Demons their first loss, Murcia Cobras quarterback Adam Salvadori threw four touchdown passes and ran for another while his leading receiver, Cory Holmes hauled in three passes for touchdowns. The game was a see-saw battle with neither team taking control until Murcia scored late in the game to seal the win. For the Black Demons, quarterback Trenton Jones was outstanding throwing five touchdown passes, three to Even Altizer and two to Marcos de la Mata.

With the loss, the Black Demons drop to fourth place in the 12 team league with the Coslada Camioneros in third after blanking the winless Santiago Black Ravens 42-0.  Alejandro Escribano scored five touchdowns to lead Coslada.

Coslada takes third by virtue of allowing fewer points per game than the Black Demons (6.8 compared to 10.6)

The Mallorca Voltors secured their third win of the year with a 45-8 whipping of the Zaragoza Hurricanes. In the final game of the weekend in Spain, the Granada Lions were no match for the Fuengirola Potros who embarrassed them 52-0.
