The Defense of the RAIDRS did not allow any points of the opponent for the second straight game, intercepted two passes of Berlin´s quarterback Paul Zimmermann and saved a fumble.

The only good drive of the Germans ended with an interception when the SWARCO RAIDERS picked up a pass from playmaker Paul Zimmermann in the endzone at the end of the first quarter.

For Fatah, the game was of course very particular in his hometown. “To play in Berlin, was very special for me. In spite of all the solidarity it was a very important game," said the coach. "We played from the first to the last minute strong and focused today. I am proud of the team. "
