it didn’t take long for the Cologne Centurions to take control of the game, building a 13 point lead on the Stuttgart Surge.
RB Madre London continued his hot streak, scoring the 1st TD on a 19 yard run that he had to cutback and change directions in order to get room to score.
A punt and a fumble by the Surge gave 2 more opportunities for the Centurions to extend their lead.
WR Quinton Pounds did more to prove his performances thus far aren’t a fluke, scoring 3 TDs in the 1st half alone. Including one on an amazing diving catch in the endzone. FB Patrick Poetsch also got a TD pass from QB Jan Weinreich.
Surge QB Aaron Ellis was forced off his spot in the pocket in numerous occasions, not allowing a lot of rhythm to be gained for Stuttgart. But he didn’t have a bad game. Ellis threw for 3 TDs, but was intercepted once, late in the 4th.
WR Paul Steigerwald was a hot target for Ellis, especially when 1st downs were necessary.
Four of the points scored by the Surge were on blocked PATs returned for the scores. Cologne was able to capitalize on one of the blocks (3), getting a 2 pt conversion out of the mess.
The rest of the game, both teams were equals, but Cologne’s 17 point advantage gained in the 1st quarter was too much for Stuttgart to overcome.
The Surge fall to 2-3, while the Centurions jump to 3-2.
