Let's go!
 
Second game for the Falcons in the 2015 league.

Can the Falcons retain their unbeaten streak versus the Pirates and with that a perfect record in the Dutch topdivision?

The local derby that wasn't

Never in their existence did the Nijmegen Pirates manage to beat the Falcons. The rivals from two nearby towns clashed again this weekend at the field of the Pirates, but history repeated itself and once again, the Pirates were sent home empty handed after a 33-0 loss.

Things started off well enough for the Pirates, who introduced their new uniforms in this game. In the first quarter the Falcons were dominating, but couldn't make a fist and saw drive after drive end in punts caused by penalties or incompletions as the wind played a major factor.

The first quarter ended with the Falcons once again knocking on the door of the Pirates' endzone and with the first play of the second quarter runningback Brandon Stamper finally broke the stalemate with a 9 yard TD run. Kicker Tim van Mal, who had a bad outing in the Falcons' opening game didn't make a mistake this time and added the extra point.

Scoring frenzy

With this score you could sense a weight falling of the back of the Arnhem players and on the next offensive drive they added a second touchdown when QB AJ Hobbelink found Matt Newman in the right corner of the endzone for a 12 yard TD. Kicker van Mal didn't get the chance to show his aim again as the hold of the PAT was botched and the ball got smothered in the rush of Pirate defenders.

The Nijmegen Pirates then provided Arnhem with excellent fieldposition as their drive was a three and out and the punt only managed to net 9 yards. The Falcons' running game got rolling in the subsequent drive and 5 plays later Brandon Stamper added his second score of the day after a 2 yard scamper. Holding problems absent, van Mal was able to add the PAT without problems.

The next Arnhem possession provided another touchdown when a 6 play, 45 yard drive was capped with AJ Hobbelink's second TD pass of the day. This time Jermaine Ramsey was on the receiving end of the 30 yard strike. Once again, the extra point was good.

The Falcons got another chance to add to their points total before halftime after safety Milan Lentze intercepted Pirate QB Paesch on their 37 yard line and returned the ball all the way to the Nijmegen 17. Rather uncharacteristically though, the Falcons fumbled on the ensuing drive at the Pirates 5 yard line. This meant the halftime score was 0-27.

 

Right After halftime the Pirates got their best chance to put points on the board. A long drive from their own 20 yard line, aided by good running and Arnhem penalties, stalled at the Arnhem 5 yard line. This proved to be as close as the Pirates came to the Arnhem endzone all game. The Pirates did dominate the time of possession in the third quarter though with the Falcons only managing to squeeze in one drive.

Dotting i's, crossing t's

The start of the fourth quarter also saw the start of another Falcons drive. Again with great field position as a starting point, the 30 yards to the Nijmegen endzone were traversed in 7 plays, capped by AJ Hobbelinks third TD pass of the day. Once again Jermaine Ramsey managed to reach the endzone. Kicking against the swirly wind, the extra point failed wide right, elevating the score to 0-33.

After this score both teams decided to let their second stringers get playing time which resulted in a succession of short drives ending in punts. And with that, the game came to an end.

The Falcons will be happy they managed to get their offense going and kept a clean sheet on the defensive side. They now move on to the Amsterdam Panthers, a game originally scheduled on opening day of the season, but rescheduled to March 8 after inclement weather made the field unplayable on Superbowl Sunday.

Falcons open season with win

The Falcons got off to a good start in their 2015 campaign. In Rotterdam the 010Trojans were beaten by 15 - 9.

It was a rough win, but the Falcons defense stood its ground while the offense was just successful enough to eek out a win.

It started out good enough for the Falcons. After trading "three and out"s on their first possessions, the second Arnhem drive proved successful. After an impressive 18 play drive it was fullback Lennard Harris who scored on a beautiful 16 yard run. Tim van Mal added the extra point for a 7-0 Falcons lead. Quickly after this, the Arnhem defense did its share by forcing a fumble in the Rotterdam endzone for a safety (9-0).

After this, the "engine" seemed to stall though, and Rotterdam managed to tie the game up at halftime by first kicking a fieldgoal and later rushing for a touchdown.

 
In the second half, the pattern seemed to be repeating. The Falcons offense had the biggest share in the time of possession and seemed to be able to move the ball at will from 20 to 20, but faltered in the redzone. It was already the fourth quarter before Joost Holtslag finally broke the stalemate with a nice outside run.

The extra point was missed by van Mal, who was not having a good day. Earlier in the game he had already missed twice on fieldgoal attempts which normally pose no problem for the Falcons placekicker.

With that, the score arrived at 15-9 and the defense made sure it stayed that way with 2 second half interceptions by free safety Milan Lentze, the second one coming with only a little over a minute left to play in the game. What followed were three Arnhem kneel-downs to finalize a scrappy, but in the end deserved win.

They did a good job with this, wouldn't mind seeing this become reality (not that it will ever happen).
