Semifinal: Gdynia downs Białystok

Autor: Alex Zarganis Published: 28 Jun 2015 | Comments: 0

Paweł Fabich exploded for three second-half touchdowns to lead the Gdynia Seahawks to a 35-13 victory over the Primacol Białystok Lowlanders in the second Topliga semifinal game on Sunday at the National Rugby Stadium. With the win, the Seahawks advance to SuperFinal X at Wrocław Stadium on July 11, where they will need to beat the Wrocław Panthers to become Poland's first repeat champion.

Micah Brown threw for five touchdown passes on the afternoon, including a 15-yarder to Jakub Mazan that opened the scoring in the first quarter. Jabari Harris tied the game early in the second quarter with a 3-yard touchdown run, but the Seahawks went back ahead before the intermission when Brown hit Angelo Pease for a 20-yard score.

Fabich got going in the third quarter, extending the Gdynia lead to 21-7 with a 15-yard touchdown catch. He made it 28-7 with a 38-yarder early in the fourth, before completing his trifecta with a 10-yarder shortly thereafter. Harris threw a late touchdown pass to Łukasz Czaczkowski to complete the scoring.

The Seahawks won SuperFinal IX 41-32 last year over the Panthers in Gdynia. The teams played each other twice during the 2015 regular season, however, with Wrocław taking both contests by a lopsided combined score of 68-7. As mentioned, a win for the Seahawks would make them the first repeat champions in Topliga history, while a win for the Panthers would make it five Polish championships out of ten for the city of Wrocław.
