Category: European Championship - published 2010-07-27 by EFAF

Team France crushed Great Britain 50-0 in their second group game, which takes them to the European Championship final for the first time, and also earns the French team their first medal in European play. To make the victory even more sweeter, a place in the final also qualifies them for next year´s World Cup in Austria.

Team France put the game away in the last one and a half minute of the first half. A safety and a Jeremy Rabot touchdown catch made it 22-0 at the half. The French defense played a great first half, allowing the Brits to gain only 91 yards in the firsta half, with a big part of the yardage coming from hail mary passes in the final moments of the second quarter. Great Britain kept running the ball with Jermaine Allen, but he managed only 35 yards on 15 first half carries. Great Britin finished the game with just two rushing yards.

Great Britain could not even come close of creating a comeback in the second half, and the French increased their lead with four more touchdowns.

"We played our A-game. It helped that this was our second game here, we had more rhytm", head coach Larry Legault said.

French team MVP Max Sprauel (23/33, 305 yards and 3 touchdowns) agreed that the second game was easier.

"I was able to move more at ease, and saw my receivers better."

Wide receiver Clive Palumbo was the British MVP of the game.

"They are a more experienced team. Their front seven played a good game."
