They march on! The Legionaries from Fischamend celebrated their second consecutive win and challenge the leaders of Conference B in two weeks.
EA great defensive performance and a touchdown in the last minute made the Legionaries celebrate in the home game against Ebenfurth.
With three defeats, the Carnuntum Legionaries started the season extremely badly. Now Andreas Rohringer’s team in Division II struck a second time against the “Mustangs” from Ebenfurth. After last week’s success over the Pannonia Eagles, Schwadorf defeated Ebenfurth in the rainy battle.
“We never let the Mustangs within range for a field goal. That’s an amazing performance,” said the chairman and player of the Carnuntum Legionaries, Stefan Stieger, praising the defense. The defensive line trained by defensive coordinator Michael Habeler held the zero until the end of the game. The offense found it difficult to implement the attacking moves on the wet field. It was still enough for the home win. Fischamender Daniel Buchinger delivered the decisive touchdown. In the last minute of the game! “Before, we messed up two field goals because the ball was so slippery,” reported Stieger.
There was also a lot of praise for Philip Meran-Gold, who had to replace quarterback Bernhard Ruscher at short notice in the third quarter. “Ruscher had circulatory problems and had to recover. Merano played self-sacrificingly and did the team a disservice.”
The sixth round of Conference B takes the Legionaries to the “Blue Hawks” in Schönfeld in two weeks. In the first leg, the Fischamender suffered a clear 0:19 defeat against the previously undefeated leaders.
