Big Victory over Butchers – in Eurobowl Final for second time in a row


The SWARCO Raiders (8-2) utilized a quick start in cruising to a 31-13 EuroBowl Semi-Final victory over the Porvoo Butchers of Finland Saturday in front of a huge, boisterous crowd at Tivoli Stadium. The win advances the Silver and Black to their second consecutive EuroBowl final, where they will face the Paris Flash on July 11th (location to be determined.)

The Butchers received the ball to begin the game, but on their fourth play from scrimmage quarterback Cederic Johnson was blindsided and coughed up the ball. The Raiders recovered and never looked back. The SWARCO Raiders offense immediately drove down the field, capped by an 11-yard Florian Grein touchdown run. On the next drive, the Silver and Black defense forced a three and out, and again the offense drove the field for Grein's second touchdown of the game, this time from 7 yards out.

The Butchers would answer on a short touchdown pass to cut the lead to 14-7, but from there SWARCO Raiders receiver Andi Pröller would take over the game. In the second quarter he would catch two scoring grabs, the first on a brilliant crossing route from 16-yards away and the second from 8 yards out in traffic along the sideline for a 28-7 SWARCO Raiders halftime lead. Pröller would lead all receivers with 8 catches for 105 yards. Quarterback Jason Johnson continued his solid play by going 21-26 on the night (81%) for 204 yards and 2 TD.

In the second half, the SWARCO Raiders would add to their lead with a 23 yard Robert Balzinec field goal to make it 31-7. The Butchers scored on a late touchdown, but it wasn't enough to pose a serious threat as the SWARCO Raiders shifted gears to the ground to run out the clock. Running back Florian Grein did the bulk of the work, finishing the day with 88 yards on 16 carries and 2 scores. Defensively, the SWARCO Raiders held the Finnish offense to just 261 yards and forced 2 turnovers.

The SWARCO Raiders opponent for EuroBowl XXIII will be the Paris Flash, who took down the Graz Giants in the other semi-final 35-33 earlier in the evening. The location of the game will be announced by the EFAF in the upcoming week.

The SWARCO Raiders will take a week off before playing the Austrian Semi-Final against either the Vienna Vikings or Hohenems Blue Devils on June 27th. As always, catch the action onlive.raiders.at.
