Watch two of Sweden’s top teams play live!Sweden’s number one team and Europe #11, the Carlstad Crusaders, travel to Orebro to face the Orebro Black Knights Thursday, August 21st.
These two teams battled for the Swedish championship in 2013 with Carlstad coming out on top to win their fourth straight.This season the two teams have only met once, in the third week, and Carlstad dominated, winning 42-9.
This is a different Orebro team though with the addition of quarterback Joe Clancy (Merrimack, Div. II) who recently arrived to replace the injured Andrew Shoop. Clancy played his first game last weekend throwing 10 touchdown passes in a 78-14 rout of Arlanda.
Carlstad has dominated the Swedish league this season and with a 9-0 record look almost invincible. They are aiming for their fifth straight title. The Black Knights have not beaten them since 1999. No better incentive than that. Playing at home in front of a wildly enthusiastic crowd, Orebro may throw a wrench into Carlstad’s plans.
