The Warsaw Eagles dominated a special May 3 holiday game on Tuesday in Poznań, holding the Kozły offense to a mere 8 yards in a 48-0 victory. Warsaw bolted out to a 30-0 lead after just a quarter of play, allowing them to coast to victory with substitutes on the field the rest of the way. Poznań has never beaten Warsaw in 14 meetings to date.
Jakub Kłoskowski scored on two of his three receptions in the game, putting Warsaw ahead 14-0 very early on. Trailing 7-0 after the receiver's first score, Kozły squandered a golden opportunity to tie the game on a drive that started deep in Eagles territory after a failed onside kick attempt. The possession ended in a missed field goal try and Poznań would be held scoreless the rest of the way.
A terrible sequence for Kozły effectively sealed the game late in the first quarter. It began with a safety that made it 16-0, a mistake that was compounded when Cody Smith ran the ensuing safety kickoff back 80 yards for a score. Charles McCrea followed him in with a punt return touchdown shortly thereafter to make it 30-0. Piotr Pamulak, Karol Żak and Marcin Malesa scored later in the game for the Eagles.
