BRAUNSCHWEIG LIONS vs SEINÄJOKI CROCODILES 15:7
JUNE 15th 2002, STADIUM HAMBURGER STRAßE

In front of 5.630 spectators the Braunschweig Lions reached the final for the Eurobowl XVI. The team of Headcoach Troy Tomlin defeated the Seinäjoki Crocodiles in a close game with 15:7 (3:7) and will be playing in the Eurobowl final for the second time after 1999. Back then the Lions won the Eurobowl trophy and on July 6th they will have to face the winner of the other semifinal game between the Vienna Vikings and the Bergamo Lions.
From the beginning the finnish champion was a very strong opponent for the german team and especially the passing game was their big strength. Quarterback Adam Lane had a good timing with Jason Tibbits and in the first quarter both players hooked up for the first touchdown of the game. The fans in Braunschweig became quiet a little bit because their team was not in the game yet. The offense struggled many times in the first half but the defense hold the guest team scoreless for the rest of the game. Kicker Marko Rothaar marked the first three points before halftime and in the second half Wide Receiver David DeArmas became the matchwinner for the home team. He caught touchdown passes from Wulf von Borzyskowski and Nicolai Alex and was voted the MVP from the Braunschweig fans. The official EFAF trophy for the Most Valuable Player went to Elzie Anderson who played a good and strong game with his defense collegues.
The Lions defense forced two fumbles and also caught two interceptions. That was too much for Seinäjoki. At the end of the game the Crocodiles had a total of 25 yards rushing. That low number and the interceptions ended all their hopes of advancing to the final. The Lions offense produced almost 300 total yards but was still unable to get on the scoreboard a lot. That is one thing that has to be done better in the next game if the Germans want to win the Eurobowl trophy for the second time after 1999. Either Bergamo or Vienna will be very strong opponents and the fans will get an exciting game of American Football.

Scoring:

1st Quarter Jason Tibbits 15 Yard-Reception (PAT Jukka Satola) 0:7
2nd Quarter Marko Rothaar 35 Yard-Field Goal 3:7
3rd Quarter David DeArmas 12 Yard-Reception (PAT failed) 9:7
