Jakub Mazan entered the endzone after a 27-yard pass getting his second touchdown of the game. Just a few moments later, he crossed the end line again, but his punt return didn’t count due to a foul in blocking by his teammates. Seahawks ended this offensive effort with a touchdown anyway.

After an accurate pass into the endzone, Michal Jarocki could celebrate a touchdown. This points, as well as good PAT, were the only points scored during this part of the game.
The last quarter was interesting due to the mercy rule, which means not stopping the time. The Seahawks managed to get more points though. Milosz Goralski ended his 14-yard run in the endzone. Shortly after, Jakub Mazan added two points. Sure of their win, the guests allowed the substitute quarterback to play. On the other side, the wolves did the same, probably already sure of their defeat. This came to be a good move, as Damian Podczaski, who normally plays as the second quarterback, managed to run more than 60 yards in two attempts. This ended with Wolves’ first touchdown in 2019 season. The versatile player added a point for the hosts. The last words belonged to Jakub Mazan who caught the kick-off ball and presented 80-yard return finished with a touchdown. As a result, the game ended with 7:62 on the scoreboard.
