Spartans blow open Warsaw derby in 2nd half, top Werewolves 54-6
The Warsaw Spartans used a balanced attack and a deep lineup to overcome some early troubles and beat the Werewolves 54-6 in the Warsaw derby on Sunday afternoon. Six different players found the end zone for the Spartans, who improved to 2-0 with the victory.
The first quarter was a relatively quiet one, with Artur Makara providing the only scoring via an 8-yard touchdown reception from J Stuart Lund. The Spartan quarterback would eventually go on to throw five touchdown passes on the afternoon, including two to Maciej Pobudkiewicz.
The Werewolves made some noise in the second quarter, when Jakub Mroczynski went for a 35-yard touchdown reception that cut the Spartan lead to 7-6. Their joy was short-lived, however, as Lukasz Kolodziejczyk took the ensuing kickoff back to the house for a touchdown. Tomasz Ochnio ran in for a score later in the quarter to give the ‘visiting’ team a 20-6 lead at the break. It was then all Spartans in the second half, as they scored twice in the third quarter and three more times in the fourth against a worn-out Werewolves defense.
The Spartans will take on an old rival, Torpedy Lódz, in their next game, which will come on the road on June 26. Torpedy have one win and one loss so far this season. The Werewolves, meanwhile, will go in search of their first victory against the only other 0-2 team, the 1. KFA Fireballs Wielkopolska, in Poznan on June 25.
