In the rain the ball was pretty slippery what effected many fumbles. After a bad handoff Bence Kovács recovered a bouncing ball. In this drive the runs of Dávid Danku resulted first downs. The Hurricanes offense stuck at the red zone of Invaders. The Hurricanes put the first points on the board with a 26 yard field goal of Kristóf Szakács‘ (0:3).
The rain didn’t stop during the break, so the second half begun with even worse field conditions. The Invaders started with a long return, and at the end of the 25 yard long drive Christian Hasenzagl scored a rushing touchdown. The Invaders tried to convert two extra points but the pass was incomplete, so the scores remain 6:16. After that Hurricanes drove a long drive and got to the red zone of the Invaders. Unfortunately they failed to score but the drive burned a lot of time what was unfavorable for the home team.
The next drives were scoreless for both teams. The Invaders made mistakes again and lost the ball on their own side. The fumble was recovered again by István Bittner. The result of this possession were another points: Dávid Danku was running through defensive players from 19 yard to the end zone of the Invaders. This touchdown and the successful PAT set the final result: Budapest Hurricanes defeated Generali Invaders 6:23. (Bea Letenyei/Márk Bencsics Photos: Péter Bratincsák)
