Lions looking to go back2back !!
In last week’s GFL semifinal game the New Yorker Lions hosted the Cologne Falcons in front of about 7000 spectators. Most didnt have the Falcons even making it to the playoffs let alone this game and they were pumped. The defending champions jumped out early to a 10-0 lead after a T.Goebel 33 yd field goal and a 6 yd Td run by Andrew. Heading into the second quarter things still looked hopeful for the Falcons even after giving up a 12yd Td pass from Therriault to Dabel. Kicker L.Moersch finally put the Falcons on the board. But little did Falcon fans know that will be the only points of the game for their team. The Lions went on a touchdown frenzy after giving up those 3 points. Top American import D.McCants had no rushing TDs but added a 85yd kick return Td to the mix. Both Andrews and Dabel added to their touchdowns and Star Qb C.Therriault added a 44yd Td run to make it 45-3 Lions. The Lions racked up 437 total offensive yards vs thr Falcons 176. the Falcons offense had a horrible day running 55 plays and just gaining 3.2 yards per play might have been their worst performance of the season. Running back by committee was the deal of the day for the Lions as 3 backs as well as their Qb all ran the ball at least 8 times. Lions Qb lead the team with 76yds and add 217 by air. The Lions will meet Hall in this years German bowl after a close win over the Dresden Monarchs. Hall’s top back M.Sims ripped the Monarchs D for 225 and 4 Td’s. This has set the stage for what most think will be a electrifying game.
