The Schw.Hall Unicorns gave it their all in last nights German Bowl. In front of about 13 thousand at Jahn Sportspark in Berlin the New Yorker Lions had the task of defending their 2013 championship. The game quickly got out of hand for Hall, after a field goal by F.Brenner. The Lions was first put on the scoreboard with a 12 yard TD run by McCants. The Unicorns seemed to not be in this game at all , with one of the leagues best rushing attacks Hall was held to only 48 yards. All 48 racked up by Sims. QB Mark Ehrenfried was a decent 17-28 what killed him was the 3 ints he tossed up to Lion defenders. Lions Tberriault had similar numbers going 18-28 with 0 picks for 210 yards. With only 1 touchdown through the air 6 came by ground. Dave McCants had 3 of those 6 as he had a very productive night with 12 rushes for 56 yards. Mike Andrew added 11 for 36 yards and 2 touchdowns and rushing leader QB Casey Therriault picked up 97 yards on 6 carries and added a td to the mix. The Lions out rushed the Unicors 195 to 48. Dable would be the Lions most productive receiver hauling in 7 catches for 79 yards and a td. Defense would be the dominating factor for the Lions, Homri lead the attack with 7 tackles and a interception. 2 more big interceptions came from Ihi and Lebeau who also had a big fumble recovery. The Lions reached the red zone 7 times and capitalize 7 times all with touchdowns, the Unicorns on the other hand would be 1-1 scoring only a field goal. this year’s German Bowl displayed the strength of the North compared to the South. The Lions have found a formula that works and they’ve continued to build with these same ingredients. And from the looks of things will continue to build. In my opinion if the Lions stay with the same structure they will be champs for the next 3 seasons. Hall is seen as the strongest team in the South Division and they were dominated so the South as a hole must step up the competition. The North Division is a tad bit stronger with teams like Dreaden, Berlin and Kiel all being strong competitors. This offseason will be big in terms of what teams do to compete with the Lions in 2015.
