Seinäjoki Crocodiles did not give a chance to the unexperienced Trojans. The Trojans missed some of their keyplayers and half of the team played their first game on Maple League level. Crocodiles on the other hand played already their third game this season and they are one of the favorites for the championship so the outcome of the game was no surprise.
Crocodiles scored in their first two drives but then Trojans could hold their offense in check. Halftime score was 14-0. In the second half Trojans no longer could stand the pressure and Crocodiles scored again and again. Chris Dapolito and Jamal Allen did what they could and a couple of times Jamal made nice catches from Dapolitos throws but the big plays were missing. On the ground RB Teemu Paukkula made some progress, but the offensive line could not make enough room for him to really break loose, so no score this time.
Next game is against Rauma Sea City Storm. Rauma plays their first season in Maple League. The kickoff is on Saturday 11th June at 4 pm.
