Bergamo Lions defeat L`Hospitalet Pioners


The reigning Italian Champion had no problems in the first european game against the spanish team from Badalona. The Pioners could show up with only 20 players. 7 injuries out of their spanish semifinal game - the two american player included - some player injured before and some not available was not the best starting basis against a club like Bergamo with an gameday cadre of more than 40 players.

The Bergamo Lions win their first Eurobowl match beating the Spanish
Barcelona Pioneers. Very notable, on the football-field, has been the spread beetween the 2 teams on both levels technical and numerical, in
fact Barcelona carried to Bergamo a restricted number of players.

The Lions have demonstrate their dinamicity on both carry balls and throw it even if the first quarterback captain Dino Bucciol - momentarily off because of a small back-hacke -, have been backed-up by the young Italian qb Stefano candela, a strong promise of young Italian football.

The Scoring summary see the Lions invade Barcelona's End-zone 6 times, twice by #3 runner Bartinsky carring on the field, 3 times by pass (2 by Candela, 1 by Sangenette) and finally, on third quarter, the defense returns a spanish's throw for 50 yds in Touch Down.

Bergamo shiningly exceeds first appointment that the EFAF placed on its rush to the july EuroBowl and the Golden Helmets seems to be very determined to join that target that, last year, vanished at Wien Vikings during one of most beatiful football match even played in Europe.

Next Eurobowl match for the Lions will be in Graz against the ancient-known
Giants, 30 may.
