Panthers keep pace

The Eagles were right back in action four days after beating Kozły on the May 3 holiday, but this time things did not go as planned as Warsaw fell to the second-place Wrocław Panthers at home by a score of 44-2. Wrocław moved to 3-1 ahead of a May 15 matchup with the Prague Lions that will determine who advances to the IFAF Europe Champions League semifinals.

The Panthers have now beaten the Eagles five consecutive times, including a 47-9 victory in last year's PLFA playoffs. Saturday's game looked to be a closer one early, as Wrocław led only 3-0 at the end of the first quarter after squandering a pair of scoring chances. Rickey Stevens and Steven White gave the Panthers a more comfortable halftime lead with rushing touchdowns in the second quarter, and Stevens scored again early in the third to make it 24-0.

Stevens scored again in final quarter to complete a hat trick, while White threw a pair of touchdown passes to go along with his rushing score. The Eagles only avoided the shutout when Konrad Paszkiewicz picked up a blocked extra point in the fourth quarter and ran it all the way back for a two-point touchdown.

UP NEXT:
Eagles (2-2): vs. Warsaw Sharks (1-3), May 14
Panthers (3-1): vs. Kozły Poznań (0-4), May 21
