53-0 victory against the Aix-en-Provence Argonautes

More than 3,400 fans cheered the 53-0 home win of the New Yorker Lions against the Aix-en-Provence Argonautes in group A of the BIG6 and the associated place in Eurobowl XXX.

With the success the team of head coach Troy Tomlin reached the final of the BIG6, which they won in 2015, for the third time in a row.

The Lions, who could count again on linebacker Kerim Homri and quarterback Evan Landi were clearly the better team and showed that directly from the first kick off.

Already in the first offensive play running back David McCants marked the first touchdown with a spectacular run over 65 yards and gave the Lions a 8-0-lead after a successful two point conversion. The defense then prevented the offensive efforts of the Argonautes throughout the intire game and the own offense dominated for the rest of the match. Jan Hilgenfeldt made the second touchdown after a pass from Grant Enders and fullback Maximilian Merwarth scored with a run into the end zone, so the Lions already had a 22-0 lead after the first quarter.

Even before halftime the Lions fixed the victory with touchdowns from Hilgenfeldt and Chris Smith. The teams went in the break with a 36-0-lead of the Lions.

Even though the Lions no longer brought all starters on the field and showed up with Landi as new quarterback, the picture was the same in the second half. In the first drive the Germans needed only five plays and a 12-yard-run of Merwarth to extend the lead to a 43-0.

After that kicker Tobias Goebel increased with a 38-yard fieldgoal first before Lendi found Kai Silbermann with a 15-yard pass in the end zone of the French and marked the final score.

Now it comes to a renewed duel between the currently best teams of Europe, when the New Yorker Lions face the SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol in Eurobowl XXX on the weekend of 11th/12th of June
