In front of 1.500 fans the New Yorker Lions beat Flash de la Courneuve 37:14 (7:0; 7:14; 14:0; 9:0). With this victory the Lions are the winner of group B of the BIG6 European Football League and advance to Eurobowl XXIX where they will face the winner of the game of Vienna Vikings vs. Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns.
The game proved to be the challenge Troy Tomlin, Headcoach of the Lions, was talking about before the game. Until halftime no team could gain a decisive advantage. A strong Lion’s defense with 5 interceptions, two of which were returned for a touchdown were eventually the key to winning today.
The New Yorker Lions will have their fifth appearance in the Eurobowl (1999, 2002, 2003 & 2014). The Lions have won the Eurobowl already twice in their team history (1999 & 2003).
