Eagles pummel Tigers 68-12

Autor: Alex Zarganis Published: 16 Apr 2012 | Comments: 0

Kevin Lynch threw for four touchdowns and eight different Eagles found the end zone in the capital on Saturday afternoon as Warsaw pounded the Dom-Bud Krakow Tigers by a score of 68-12. Marcin Jodłowski and Piotr Osuchowski both scored twice for the victors, who are now averaging 49 points a game in Topliga play.

Standing at 3-0, the Eagles are the only undefeated team left in the six-team Topliga, a game ahead of the Wrocław Devils and the Gdynia Seahawks. Things are a little less rosy for the Tigers, who are in a fourth-place tie with the AZS Silesia Rebels at 1-2, ahead of only winless Kozły Poznań. In other words, they remain right in the thick of the battle for a playoff spot, although a 40-6 opening weekend loss to the Rebels does not bode well for their chances in that regard.

Another big crowd turned out on a pleasant afternoon at OSiR Bemowo, and they didn't have to wait long for the explosive Eagle offense to strike. Lynch hit Grzegorz Janiak for a 65-yard touchdown early in the first quarter, and followed that score up with a 60-yarder to Tyrone Landrum later in the quarter. The Eagles piled up 35 points by halftime, and they led 49-6 at the end of three quarters.

Filip Mościcki continued to play well for the Tigers, scoring two touchdowns of his own against a stiff Warsaw defense that is tied with the Devils for the fewest points allowed in the league. The other bright spot for the visitors was a 90-yard kickoff return from the league's most dangerous return man, Kamil Piwowar, who was nevertheless stopped just short of the end zone after a dramatic chase by Norman Seignious III.

The Tigers will now lick their wounds and return to Krakow, where they have won their only home game so far this season. They will have a tough task in keeping their home record unblemished, however, as the Wrocław Devils come to town on April 21. The Eagles, on the other hand, travel to Katowice a day later to face the AZS Silesia Rebels, in what may be a tune-up for their big road battle with the Devils a week later.
