Badalona DRAGS 19
Part. (20 - 13, 14 - 0, 14 - 6, 7 - 0)

It was a sunny and hot afternoon the one waiting for Badalona in Bergamo.
Lions were strongly resoluted to take back in Bergamo the European most
important final after having lost it, last year, in Wien.
After this match Lions have the possibility to revenge about that lost
burning again in Bergamo player's hearts.

Badalona kicks the football to start off the match and Bergamo offence line
up all its weapons to settle down the score and take home the final, but
Drags defence don't agree so we have to wait to see Bartinsky run all across
the field delivering in end zone a 64 yds rush (Marone +1).
Not very later the valuable Badalona Drags quarterback Ortuno shunts a ball
to #23 Walton who rushes through lions defense cutting the field toward a 22
yds rush (Ortuno +1).

Its now time for the Lions to ensure the score. So Bucciol, protected by an
excellent pocket, throws a bomb joining comfortable Sangenette hands. The
football is in end zone for a 35 Td pass (Marone +1).
But Ortuno drives the game to a 29 yds pass received by #46 Rodriguez who
takes the Drags to the ulterior parity, but Ortuno failed the EP and
Badalona is 1 point under.

Lions try to gain distance and play a passing game over rookie receiver
Marco Podavitte from Brescia Bengals. No problem, with enviable cold blood
Podavitte spikes down a 35 Td pass in end zone. Will hear again about this
boy, guys! Marone failed the EP and the ref command the end of the quarter.
Change of side but the lions keep on pushing and Bartinsky jumps out the box
rushin a 57 yds TD inflaming the stadium: is the signal, the Lions take off
toward the euroBowl. Not happy again Bucciol caught his first target
Sangenette who realizes a 6 yds TD. Half time show and at the re-entering
the Drags intercept a Bucciol pass returning it in the end-zone. Once more
Ortuno fails the EP. It's Lions show now. Bergamo Air Force establish on the
field and Bucciol shares footballs over Drags defence heads. First
Sangenette then Barbotti sign 46 and 52 yds TD pass both transformed by
Marone's foot. Before the end, Bergamo spreads shooting Bartinsky through
his last raid in Badalona's end zone. Marone targets the goal and the Lions
gain their fourth EuroBowl in the last 5 years.

Probably Wien will host the EuroBowl and the Vikings stadium will see a
rematch of EuroBowl XV.

At the beginning of the season first Bergamo target was the EuroBowl. Well,
the target have been centered, now it's time to take back the trophy at
home.
