On Saturday night, May 14th, the Italian Champion Bergamo Lions faced off against the French Champion Spartiates of Amiens at Moulonguet Stadium, about 150 km north of Paris. The game proved to be an offensive show for close to 1000 spectators on hand. After scoring more than 52 points in the first half, it seemed as if both teams simply ignored the rainy and chilly weather conditions.

It became obvious from the beginning that The Spartiates could hold their own against the multi-year European Champion. Trading scores, the Lions struck first and the Spartiates answered right back with a TD run by Ivan WOJCIEHOWSKI after some impressive blocks from his offensive line. After a bad snap on a punt, the Spartiates took advantage and capitalized and took the lead 14-7 at the end of the first quarter.

In the second quarter, however, the Lions and Walter CROSS surged ahead scoring 3 times, one of which was a field goal. CROSS, an American RB from University of Michigan, proved to be unstoppable. Despite his performance, Wilfried ANDRE returned a kickoff 85 yards for a TD before the half. Going into the lockerooms, the Lions led 31-21 and were very confident after having established a strong running game.

In the third quarter, both defenses decided to show up and did not concede a single point. French linebackers Arnaud LEPRETRE and Manu N’DOMBI turned up the heat on CROSS and held him at bay. As for the Spartiates, the weather seemed to be finally having its effect.

In the 4th quarter, The Spartiates executed a long drive of passing and running and scored a TD on a pass from Lucas PHILLIPS to Francois LECLERQ. That play reignited the fire at Moulonguet Stadium and brought the Spartiates back to within 3 points of the heavily-favored Italians. After trading scores, there were less than 3 minutes left to play and the Lions had the lead and possession of the ball. On 2nd down, the Italians fumble and Cedric COTAR recovers, giving the Spartiates one last chance of hope. But starting from their own 25 yard-line, the Spartiates offense went 4 plays and out, effectively sealing the win for Bergamo.
