In 2021 and 2022, the Cathedral City defense was statistically among the worst in the ELF. Linebacker Zachary Blair’s crew kept putting pressure on Musketeers quarterback Edwards. “Honestly, I don’t know how many times Blair has been at the opposing quarterback today. In any case, he brought leadership and control to our defence,” said sporting director David Drane in praise of the performance of the defence.
Head coach Christos Lampropoulos, on the other hand, criticized the unnecessary penalties for unsportsmanlike behavior in the first round, which would have thrown you out of rhythm.

The last two minutes couldn’t be surpassed in terms of tension and drama. The 17:10 lead through a sensational catch by Kavadia-Lenhardt – with one minute and 37 seconds left on the game clock – turned Paris only 60 seconds later. Unfortunately, the remaining 37 seconds were not enough. Ultimately, the Cologne Centurions were only missing one yard.
