The competition in the Eastern Conference of CEFL Championship is starting with two games this Saturday. Kragujevac Wild Boars are welcoming the newcomer to the league, Istanbul Koc Rams. At the same time, Budapest Cowbells are hosting a well-known opponent, Belgrade SBB Vukovi.
In addition to being reigning champions of their countries, both the Wild Boars and Koc Rams are undefeated in their national leagues so far. The Wild Boars have beat SBB Vukovi last week in the top Serbian league, while the Rams have already slated five wins in Turkey and are primed for the playoffs.
The Wild Boars’ offense will be organized by quarterback Ian McGinnis, who will have a big target in Strahinja Stepovic, returning to the team after playing in Turkey last year, for the very Koc Rams. The duo will be aided by running back Laurent Tshimanga, while Allen Ramsey II will shore up the defense. Koc Rams’ hopes are in embodied in quarterback Quentin Williams, and Charles Mccrea Jr and Andre Whyte, who play on both sides of the ball.
Emotionally shaken after a defeat in Kragujevac last week in the national league, SBB Vukovi are going to seek their chances in Budapest. Meanwhile, the Cowbells have lost their national league opener in the replay of last season’s finals. Now they’re expecting a long awaited rematch with SBB Vukovi, to whom they’ve lost last year in CEFL.
The Belgraders have brought in a couple of overseas reinforcements for their offense represented by the quarterback Lewis Kindle V and running back Duane Brady II. Hungarian team will stick with their homegrown players in the offense and their defense will be much improved with the internationals Michael Smith and Eric Agyeman taking part in it.
CEFL Cup Eastern Group is continuing this Saturday as well, when Indjija Indians welcome Novi Sad GAT Dukes, who are sitting on top of the standings list with their convincing win over Sirmium Legionaries.
