Wroclaw routs Silesia 61-0 in PLFA return
While the return of the Wroclaw Giants to the Polish League of American Football might be a positive thing for fans of the league, early indications are that it is going to be a headache for their competition. Running back Jamal Schulters had four touchdowns for Wroclaw and Bartosz Dziedzic threw for three more as the Giants brought home a 61-0 victory over the AZS Silesia Rebels on opening weekend for both teams.
Wroclaw took command of the game in the second quarter, scoring 27 points in the frame to take a 34-0 halftime lead. The Rebels got their best chance to score on their opening drive, which started after Artur Loncierz intercepted Dziedzic on the first play of the game. A few plays later Silesia had first-and-goal, but a sack led to a field goal attempt that was doomed after a bad snap.
Schulters got to work quickly after that, gaining 60 yards in his first two carries of the game. His third run put the ball in the end zone to get Wroclaw on the board, and he extended the lead early in the second quarter with his second touchdown of the game. Schulters would go on to score in each quarter for the visitors.
Dziedzic got back on track quickly after the first-quarter interception, finding his brother Tomasz as well as Michal Latos on touchdown passes in the second quarter. He also connected with one of the longest-serving Americans in the PLFA, Mark Philmore, for a 10-yard touchdown later in the game. Michal Konarski added two touchdowns for the victors.
