Home: Budapest Wolves - 0
Away: Ljubljana Silverhawks - 41
Ljubljana Silverhawks started the game with an American quarterback – Jason Lee Kramer, although he flew in from overseas as a defensive player.
Silverhawks defense came up big already at first punt return, when Jure Laharnar made advantage of good blocking and skillfully returned the ball for touchdown. Jure Bezica missed the PAT.
In the first quarter Docler Wolves defense did not leave any space for their opponents to run, so Silverhawks’ head coach, Rok Štamcar, decided to pass a lot more. This tactic has led the Silverhawks to the red zone, where Rok Sedej scored a rushing touchdown on a speed option. Aleš Zakšek was successful on a PAT and did not fail to deliver ever since.
Silverhawks’ defense continually stifled Docler Wolves’ attacks and forced them to punt several times, whereas their offense continued with diverse plays: in second quarter Jason Lee Kramer passed to Eugen Sumic for a touchdown, in the third he ran for one and in fourth he passed to Bojan Justin for his third overall.
At the end of the game Silverhawks non-starters also got a chance to play. This did not change the balance of power on the field. On the contrary, Matic Tomše put the final score 0-41 with a designed QB run.
After the game Jason Lee Kramer said: “I felt great today. I was very nervous to start the game, but after a few plays my nerves settled down and I wasn’t thinking about anything but playing the game. I am blessed with great teammates who supported me all game and made the game come real easy. The offensive line, receivers and running back took all the pressure of me. I just had to get them the ball, and they made me look good. Defensively the game was won in the trenches, the defensive line never gave Docler Wolves a shot and freed up all of the linebackers to make easy tackles.”
