Right after a half-time, the guests scored their first points of the match. Lukasz Paczek received a short pass from Mateusz Wiechec and ran for 58 yards to get the first touchdown of the game. The Kings decided to go all in scoring another two points in PAT and they were leading 0:8. The hosts didn’t want to accept this situation and they fought hard. The Kings stopped their efforts with an interception though. This good defensive performance led to yet another touchdown by the Kings. Guests’ QB decided to take an individual effort and he delivered the ball into the end-zone. Soon the hosts saw 0:16 at the scoreboard which definitely wasn’t according to their plans.
The Lions didn’t want to give up so easily, but they were making too many mistakes in their play. The Kings used every opportunity and kept on scoring.
