Two games on the opposite side of the Central Conference standings were played on Saturday. Zagreb Patriots have hosted Kranj Alp Devils for a sole position at the top, while Sarajevo Spartans and Domzale Tigers battled to escape the bottom-most spot.
In the clash of the unbeaten, teams Patriots puts the first points on the board with a field goal by Viktor Klešcic. Alp Devils answer with quarterback Nejc Lebar pass to Aljaž Gašperin for the lead. Before half time Patriots offensive line makes room for John Holloway’s rushing touchdown and ends the period in their favor 10-7.
In the second half Patriots defense stepped up and held the opponents while Holloway scored again for 17-7. While Alp Devils tried to stop Patriots’ running game, home team’s quarterback Morris Schmidt took the opportunity and completed a pass to tight end Tomislav Bekavac for 23-7. Alp Devils wake up late and lower the score with another Lebar’s pass from to Gašerin. However, Patriots had the last word and scored again over Holloway for the final 31-13.
