Unicorns vs Lions Battle in the Big Bad City
The New Yorker Lions are the defending champs of the GFL and has stormed through the GFL regular season and the playoffs with ease heading into German Bowl 36 in Berlin. They led the league in just about every category like scoring offense, scoring defense, overall defense,rushing defense and including perhaps the most important of all turn-overs which the Lions lead also. The Lions created twice as many turnovers as the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns who finished 2nd.Hall got off to a slow start this season added a new system to the team as well as having key injuries to top performers.
The Unicorns got back on track after the break once every one got healthy. Relaying on workhorse Marcus Sims Hall took off on a 14 game win streak and Sims was a very big part racking up 170 yards a game. Schwabisch Hall is a very fundelmental team that execute plays better than anyone. But Sims and his gound force may have a hard time facing a front 7 most see as the best in Europe. But the Lions back end my have their hands full with Hall’s Wr’s Will Powell and 6’7 Aurieus Adeqbesan who is seen as a mismath for any DB he faces.
The offense of the Lions has also been one to fear this season led by QB Casey Therriault who makes things happen. Casey is a persetion passer that puts the ball on point and with one of the most feared Wr duo’s in th GFL with the French connection Niklas Romer and Anthony Dable. The Lions also have one of the best backfeilds in all of Europe with Sven Rsemann a good all around back, Michael Andrew the best that pounds at the D and then quick and shifty Dave McCants. This will be a game you dont want to miss so tune in Saturday and 6pm German time 12noon(EST) to Eurosport and Eurosport2.
