Warsaw clinches at least the second seed with 38-7 win over Kozly

Kozly Poznan remained winless all-time in seven tries against the Warsaw Eagles, who went to Poznan on Sunday afternoon and returned home with a 38-7 victory and at least the number two seed in the Topliga playoffs. Grzegorz Janiak starred for the Eagles, pulling in three of Kevin Lynch's four touchdown passes.

Two of those touchdowns came in the first quarter, during which Janiak caught scoring passes of 30 and 15 yards to give the Eagles an early 14-0 lead. Norman Seignious then scored his second defensive touchdown of the season to make it 21-0 after a quarter, and Claude Tindong's second quarter touchdown reception made it 28-0 at the half.

Kozly got their only points of the game in the third quarter, on a 50-yard interception return for a touchdown by Jakub Kowalczyk. With the score 31-7, Lynch came back out after being rested for much of the third quarter, and he quickly put the game away with his third touchdown pass to Janiak.

The Eagles are now in second place, a game behind the Gdynia Seahawks and a game ahead of the Wroclaw Devils. They hold the tiebreaker advantage over both teams, meaning the Devils cannot catch them with only a game to play. However, a win next week for Warsaw and a loss by the Seahawks would give the Eagles the top playoff seed.

Warsaw will be at home for their final regular season game, taking on an improving AZS Silesia Rebels team on June 17. By the time that game kicks off, the Eagles will already know if they are playing a warm-up game or if they are playing for the number one seed, as Kozly will have hosted the Seahawks the day before in Kiekrz.
