After an ideal start for the Austrian Team from Carinthia, the Black Lions managed to score two touchdowns in the first quarter of the match. The first touchdown was the result of a great pass by the American Quarterback to his Austrian Wide Receiver PeterWerginz. The second scorer was the unstoppable Lance Gray, who ran into the endzone of the Warriors shortly before the end of the first quarter.

The second half was dominated by the defenses of both teams. The guests from Switzerland managed to get points on the board by scoring in the last quarter. The PAT however failed and so the end result of the game was 14:06 in favor of the Carinthian Black Lions.

With this victory, the Carinthian Black Lions now rank under the Top 20 American Football Teams in Europe. For the first time in history, Austria now has 5 Teams on this list, 4 of which are ranked under the Top 10!

The game between the Prague Lions and the Winterthur Warriors will decide who will reach the next round of the EFAF-CUP Competition.
