Kozły get first win of season

Autor: Alex Zarganis Published: 13 Apr 2015 | Comments: 0

Two old rivals from the early days of the PLFA renewed acquaintances on Sunday in Szczecin, where Kozły Poznań rode Emilio Dangote to a 36-20 victory over Husaria. It was the first win of the 2015 season for Kozły, who became the first team to win on the road in a matchup that hadn't been played in almost six years. 

After a scoreless first quarter, Kozły asserted on both sides of the football in the second. The defense got them on the board first, pinning Husaria back for a safety to make it 2-0 for Poznań. Jeremy Dixon then ran for a touchdown and tossed another one to Dangote to make it 16-0 heading into the locker room for halftime. 

Dixon hooked up with Dangote again early in the third quarter, connecting for a 22-yard touchdown that gave Poznań the game's first 23 points. Szczecin finally got on the board through a short Mario Brown touchdown run, and a defensive score by James Williams gave the Steelers a fighting chance heading into the final frame. 

Dangote completed the hat trick with a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter, and Dixon then made it 36-14 with a 60-yard punt return for a score. Husaria quarterback Dylan Rauch brought Szczecin to within 36-20 with a 7-yard touchdown run, but that would prove to be the final score after Husaria were stopped inches shy of another score late in the contest. 

Husaria, who have now lost two consecutive ballgames after winning their opener, will travel to Wrocław to face the undefeated Panthers on April 18. Kozły, meanwhile, will look to even their record a day later, when they host the winless Warsaw Sharks. 

Husaria (1-2): at Wrocław Panthers (3-0), Saturday, April 18, 12:30 PM
Kozły (1-2): vs. Warsaw Sharks (0-2), Sunday, April 19, 3:00 PM
