Hall defeats Parma 44:14

Unicorns reach Eurobowl Quarterfinal at Vienna. At the Hagenbach stadium the Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns came to an unexpected clear 44:14 success against the Italian champions Parma Panthers last Saturday. However, the Parma Panters presented themselves in the first quarter as team on the same level. Then the Unicorns dominated the game, had only little trouble to control the Italian guests and celebrated their 18th victory in a row.

The fact that the play developed absolutely well-balanced in the first quarter, had his reason in Unicorns problems managing their own offense. Only a 25 yard- fieldgoal of Christian Devincentis went to the scoreboard.

This changed in the second quarter. Touchdowns of Brian Rushing, Felix Brenner, Jake Spitzlberger and Thomas Hambalek brought them to a 28:6 lead for halftime. Also the Unicorns Defense had a strong second querter. Oliver Radke and Hannes Dierolf could intercept a pass a pass of Parma quarterback Tylor Tharp each.

1,200 spectators who had come in spite of rain to the Hagenbach stadium at Schwäbisch Hall saw the same dominating Unicorns in the second half. The most remarkable Italian was Andrew Papoccia who is not only the Panters head coach, but also showed up as a runningback, wildcat quarterback and safety.

But also Papoccia could not prevent that the Unicorns came to a 41:6 lead at the beginning of the fourth quarter. Taylor Tharp had to go down by sacks of Thomas Rauch (2) and Pascal Hellwig three times and only a blocked Unicorns punt brought the Italians to the Unicorns 25 yard line. Parma used this chance for a touchdown and conversion for 12:41. After that a 30 yard fieldgoal of Christian Devincentis was responsible for the final score of 44:14.

With the victory against Parma the Unicorns are now qualified for the quarterfinals. On May 27th they have to play against the Vikings at Vienna.
