The Swarco Raiders Tirol make history with their 56:49 victory in the second overtime against the Graz Giants in front of 2.500 spectators. They are the first team-sport club of Tirol to advance to a Champions League final. The frenetic crowd cheered the Buffum-team up with standing ovations from end of fourth quarter till the end of the second overtime and could not hold it back after the fourth and final down of the Giants was successfully defended.

The first half was characterised with a lot of fouls and technical mistakes from the Swarco Raiders and a great Giants team which took advantage of it. They earned their 28:14 lead. The Swarco Raiders only had a spectacular 84 yard kickoff return touchdown by Will Galusha and a lightening 81 yard touchdown catch by WR Ryan Voss in the first half.

After a very effective halftime speech the Swarco Raiders made the impossible possible. With a huge effort and a lot of will they turned the game around in the second half. They tied the game 35:35 with touchdowns from RB Lukas Miribung, WR Andreas Pröller and WR Ryan Voss. 1:24 minutes to play RB Florian Grein gave the Swarco Raiders their first lead in the game with his TD-run.

With 23 seconds left Giants allrounder Mohamed Muheize tied the game 42:42 with his TD-reception. The Swarco Raiders got themselves in field goal range two seconds left, fell short though on a game-winning 36 yard attempt by K Robert Balazinec.

Overtime had to bring the decision in this high-class game of two equal opponents. The Giants took a 49:42 lead. The Swarco Raiders offense faced a fourth down, but QB Marko Glavic had nerves of steel and found WR Ryan Voss for a 15 yard TD-pass. Ryan Voss turned into the match winner and earned game MVP honors by catching the second TD of the second overtime as well. The Graz team got the ball back trailing 49:56 on the 25 yard line, but the defense played very well and pressured QB Chris Gunn so hard, that his pass on fourth down was unterthrown.

Swarco Raiders Headcoach Geoff Buffum after the game: “This was the most unbelievable game I have experienced as a coach. We were trailing in halftime, fought back and beat them in the second overtime. This shows the class of this team. Respect!”
