Jeff Welsh and the Monarchs grounds the Falcons!!

The pressure was there. It was, however, for both teams. Dresden, after counterpart Kiel won on Saturday, urgently respond with a win to secure second place and hoping for home advantage in the play-offs.

Dresdens Quarterback Jeff Welsh served early Tyson Garnham with a 75Yard touchdown pass (PAT blocked 0: 6). Cologne took a while to respond. This they did at the beginning of the second quarter, first with a field goal by Philip 25Yard Stentzel. Dresden laid by. Trevar Deed ran across the short distance to the Monarchs second touchdown (PAT blocked again 0:12) – and it looked like a dominant idea of the Saxons. But Cologne berappelte itself. The ensuing kickoff was the strong Falcons running back Steven Strother post haste to connect touchdown (PAT Stentzel 10:12). Although Dresden was able to submit by another touchdown on Deed. But with the extra points, the worm was now definitely in there. This time failed attempt at conversion, and so it was “only” 10:18. Not enough to really settle. An invitation for the hosts, who they accepted gratefully. Quarterback Robert Demers sent Alexander Tounkara-Kone with a 60Yard pass in the end zone. And football Oldie Estrus Crayton showed the Monarchs as a proper conversion goes. Compensation: 18:18. Half time!

Anyway: Dresden came with Kampfes- and will to win from the start. Cologne had to give the ball quickly. A bad pass from Demers read gave the Monarchs offense the ball on the 28 yard line of the Falcons – and Trevar Deed made ​​short work (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:25). Then Cologne left the fortune. Two drives they worked focused forward. twice they were close to the end zone. Two times they decided to field goal. And twice we went wrong. In the first experiment Stentzel hit the yellow crossbar. The second Blockley the Monarchs little later. At the beginning of the last quarter Guillaume Rioux made ​​a remarkable catch the sack to: touchdown after a pass from 14Yard Welsh (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:32). Cologne plowed, but Dresden scorte. First, the Monarchs offense ran textbook ripe long with the clock. And Trevar Deed closed the last Saxon Drive consistently with his fourth touchdown from (PAT Hilgenfeld 18:39). Cologne came eight seconds before closing again in the end zone. Tim Have Droeze caught a 40Yarder of Demers (PAT Stentzel 25:39). On winning score that changed nothing.

The Dresden Monarchs have shown especially in the second half an impressively concentrated power. So they are now back in front of Kiel. With a win next Sunday at Euro Bowl winner Berlin Dresden could secure second place final.

Crocodiles take down Bulldogs!!

The game itself was seen at the beginning clearly nervous actions on both sides, a fumble on the first drive of the Crocodiles put the Bielefeld Offense up 7: 0. The following Drive David Graves got an interception, so that again gave Bielefeld possession. But the Bielefeld Offense was not error-free, the aggressive defense of Crocodiles could accommodate a fumble. A short time later, it was then a dynamic run of Mike Davis and the subsequent extra point by as always super safe kicker Max Reuter, who were responsible for the compensation. Shortly thereafter it was Frank Klein man who could intercept a pass and the offense brought in a promising position, but this could not take the chance. As of now the game until halftime weighed back and forth, with the Bulldogs vorlegten again, but the Crocodiles were reloading with two more touchdowns by Mike Davis. Just before half time the Crocodiles Defense could then stop the offense of the Bulldogs once again, this time the offense did not miss the chance and Denis staves scored 5 seconds before the end of the first half, the first guide of Crocodiles.

What no one knew at that time was that this guide was not given until the end, the Crocodiles did not permit any further points more in the second half. David Graves could tag by running the next touchdown even before then Yunes Rahimi, in turn, was able to secure a fumble and return post Max Reuter’s pass from David Graves scored the decision. Last desperate attacks the Bulldogs were stopped, Jimmy Enderes conquered by another interception the ball again, so that the victorious Cologne could run out of time.

Head Coach David Odenthal is accordingly satisfied with the performance: “Today we have retrieved our performance, made ​​unnecessary errors only at the beginning of the game and ultimately deserved to win. We will now prepare ourselves focused on the local derby against the Jets Troisdorf, we want to win more games.

Adler’s Top Player done for season!

Berlin’s Conrad Meadows is considered to be one of the most dangerous players in the GFL for the Berlin Adler and it has shown significantly in the past three years. Now do to a prolonged foot injury Conrad will return early to the United States before a posiable farewell forever.

Meadows in 2012 10 GFL touchdowns and 1,800 total yards and on D 1 sack and 5 interceptions.
2013 17 GFL touchdowns and more than 2,100 total yards.

Playing up to half of this season, he played 5 GFL games and 3 Big6 games. The highlight of his time in Germany might have been winning the Euro Bowl with the Eagles in July. With great pain Conrad played anyway, and big catches in that game lead to a large part of that success.
The board of the Berlin Adler Says Thank You to Conrad Meadows for the performances on and off the court. With a ceremony on Sunday before the kickoff of the Dresden Monarchs game the Eagles will give their fans the opportunity to say goodbye to the # 4.

The New Yorker Lions of Germany Europe’s #1 team, is a team that cant seem to be stoped rolling along to a 10-0 mark so far. The Berlin Adler ranked 9th in Europe was the last to fall to the Lions ,as they rolled over them 35-3.

The Monarchs of Dresden had a hard time with the Cologne Falcons but out musled them 39-25 in the end. The GFL playoff race is heating up. The top 3 spots in the north have been claimed, but the fourth spot is still up in the air with a race between the Berlin Adler and the Falcons of Cologne. The south is boiling with sepence as the Munich Cowboys are battling to stay alive but Saarland could take that spot in the event of a tie breaker, the Canes have the go ahead in the two games between the two.

Ivo Schonberner of the Dresden Monarchs!!

ISN was honored this past weekend to catch up with one of the Dresden Monarchs RB’s Ivo Schonberner!! And just the start was kind of wild do to the fact Ivo was speaking to us on his way to battle!! Him and his Monarchs was heading to face the Cologne Falcons. Ivo has been apart of the Monarch family for some time now.He started with them with the youth team back in 2007. But the twist to him joining this family came from very familiar waters for some!. Ivo wasnt always seen as a do goodder in ones eye’s, and do to getting in a bit of trouble his PE teacher pretty much forced him to go to practices are be expelled from school. And since 2007 he’s been infected by the football virus. Ivo seemed to have taken to football well, in just his 2nd year playing on the mens team he was nominated to his first National Team *2011.

A lot of the time we all wonder how does a top team stay a top team!
Here Ivo explains life playing in Dresden Monarchs Gold isn’t easy as people think. “We have good competition at practice, and we always play at a high tempo level. And this keeps us on task of remaining a top team in the GFL”. And one think that Ivo said that make him proud to be a Monarch is when the great Dresden fans may notice him out on the city streets and may ask for photos are autographs!

We wanted to know what Ivo thought about the play between North and South ball. Some feel the North is way stronger than the South and some feel that was then and this is now as the South has proven in past years by winning the GFL Championship. But like every smart sports man Ivo had the right words to spill. stating that the competition to him is too hard to call due to the fact that they only now face off doing the play off’s. But looking at the stats they are showing the north is more competitive than the south. As you see you have high scoring games pretty much every week. And in the north no gifts are giving for no team! Every team in the north is able to compete with each other. But we’ll see in the playoff’s !!

Ivo gave a lil bit of info on the relationship between him and one of the GFL top backs Trevor Deed. Playing with a back like T is amazing. We are like a Unit back there, I know I can trust him and he know the same about me. And even tho every player makes a mistake from time to time is good know I have a back like him who can destroy a hole alone!!

We chatted a bit about how great things were last season vs this season. They seemed to have fallen off in some places, but Ivo told us right then the biggest fall off is the rushing numbers. Last year we had an incredible year with 4000 plus yards rushing and this year teams have picked up on that and do a good job scheming against the Monarchs ground attack.

One things that is always talked about but we never see are hear anything being done about is what could be done better for the European youth footballers. Ivo thinks is would be a big plus to have more knowledge on the coaches side. For a youth player is great to have somebody with a lot of experience teaching them. He also thinks it would be good to get supported by the government to maybe reach a more American level eventually. There are good intangibles but it’s going in baby steps. Ivo is confident that the GFL will grow in the future and will be more competitive than what it is now on all levels.

Illini commit and BoomFootball Db Pat Nelson


With the regular season just weeks away Hales DB Pat Nelson has set the bar extremely high for this season.
“My goal is to be All-State and to win a State Championship, said Nelson.”
Nelson is one of latest verbal commits for an Illini recruiting class that includes 7v7 teammate Dre Brown
(DeKalb). The 2015 class will be highly anticipated once they reach
campus due to all the in state recruits they have been able to land.
Expectations couldn’t be any higher and B1G 10 Championships are
“I picked Illinois because I wanted to play B1G, my
coaches felt that it was the best fit for me and I think I can succeed
in the program.”
“I think the recruiting class is very strong and I believe we are the start of something great.”
Nelson has been able to showcase his talent on both
sides of the ball for his high school but is expected to play defensive
back for the Illini.
Illinois has shown lots of interest in Midwest Boom athletes during this offseason as they also extended scholarship offers to top 2016 prospects Steven Frank (Oswego) and Drake Spears (West Aurora).

“It would be great to have them because they are talented and from Illinois.”
Gus’s Take
Nelson will easily be one of the top players in the
entire state this season. He already has the size to play B1G football
and is still continuing to work on his speed. If Hales wants to continue
its success Nelson will have to have a solid senior season.

Springer also added to the ground attack with 7 rushes for 63yards and a TD. But the beast of the Rams rushing attack came to work this week as RB Malik Curry added 179 rushing yards and 2 TD’s to the mix with a long of 58yards. Curry was the Rams leading rusher in 2013.
