Pool A: Italy vs. Austria (3:34)

An outstanding Defense secured the win for the Austrian national team scoring three touchdowns against Italy. Team Austria struggled a little at the beginning, falling behind early 0:3 and scoring the first touchdown of the game not until the middle of the second quarter. Throughout the end of the first half and the start of the third quarter though the Austrian defense took control of the game: Linebacker Michael Süss recovered a fumble for a touchdown, Linebacker Philip Stojaspal and Defensive Back Christoph Putz returned interceptions all the way into the italian endzone. On the other side of the ball, Running Back Andrej Kliman and Wide Receiver Roman Meklau scored as well. The Italiens will now have to play in the Bronze medal game. Team Austria still has to beat Spain on Thursday to advance to the Gold medal game on Saturday.
