Uribe was grateful to his defense:

“In the first half we were playing well but it was our defense, especially late in the game, that got us the win. We invested a lot of hard work and effort in this game and this is certainly an important victory for the whole team.”

Wild Boars quarterback Jamie Blunt threw three touchdown passes and ran for another in a losing cause.

After a tight first quarter, Vukovi broke open a 14-14 game reeling off three unanswered touchdowns in the second quarter to take a 34-14 halftime lead.

However, the third quarter belonged to Kragujevac as Blunt found Stefan Djuric and Philip Nedeljkovića to close the gap to 34-28.

Josovic sealed the win midway through the final stanza scoring from 18 yards out while Washington added the two point conversion.

This leaves Vukovi in sole possession of first place in Serbia with two weekends remaining in the regular season. In other action, the Pancevo Panthers edged the Sirmium Legionaries 29-28 and the Novi Sad Dukes rolled over the Indija Indians 51-0.
