    Oberliga Finale in Nauheim

    Am 3. August empfangen die Nauheim Wildboys die Frankfurt Pirates zum Oberliga Hessen/Thüringen/Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar Finale.

    Beide Teams haben sich als Sieger ihrer Gruppe für das Endspiel qualifiziert. Durch einen Sieg (33:22) der Nauheim Wild Boys im Interconferencespiel gegen die Frankfurt Pirates erhielten die Nauheim Wild Boys das Heimrecht und tragen somit zum zweiten Mal nach 2007 das Finale der Oberliga Hessen/Thüringen/Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar aus. Neben den beiden Gruppensiegern stehen sich somit auch der stärkste Angriff (Nauheim mit 302 Punkten) der stärksten Abwehr (Frankfurt mit nur 81 Gegenpunkten) gegenüber.

    Man darf also gespannt sein, wenn am Sonntag um 16 Uhr im Sportpark Nauheim der stärkste Angriff auf die beste Verteidigung der Liga trifft und damit die zwei besten Teams der Oberliga Hessen/Thüringen/Rheinland-Pfalz/Saar um den Aufstieg in die Regionalliga Mitte kämpfen.

    03. August 2008 Kickoff 16:00

    I'm very excited about the outcome of the finals tomorrow.
    I will give you all the news of the game. Nauheim ist trying to get to the 3rd league the fourth time in 10 years, but never
    succeded.


    We have semi-professional leagues, playing in Germany,
    founded in 1978. That means you get a little money, but mostly you can't live from it. We have 5 to 6 string leagues, because the teams don't belong to a company of owners. When 50 guys creat a new team, they start in the lowest
    league of your country.

    1st league is German Football League - GFL
    with 6 teams in each conference
    NORTH and SOUTH

    2nd GFL has similar confereces NORTH and SOUTH with
    8 teams each


    3rd string is called Regional League

    beyond 2nd GFL North
    there is
    NORTH EAST WEST
    beyond south
    there is only
    CENTRAL and SOUTH

    4th string is called Upper League

    we have six leagues called
    NORTH EAST WEST and Hess/Thur/RLP/Saar,
    Baden-Wurtemberg Bavaria

    5th string is called Lower League of Countries

    and has similar 6 names

    NORTH EAST WEST, CENTRAL, SOUTH-WEST, SOUTH

    after winning one league, you play the next level in the following year and the last team of the higher league
    crushes down into the lower one. Only the 12 GFL teams
    play to start at the German Bowl.

    Thank you for listening.
    I will feed this thread with more news and history.
    There is more football in Germany than NFLE and it was
    no wonder 5 teams played in Germany.
    Thanks to the members of the American Forces we learned
    a lot about this sport.

    Hi folks, today was a great american football day.
    I've become the bolttalk reporter from the
    upper league finals
    NAUHEIM WILD BOYS vs. FRANKFURT PIRATES

    Before the game Offensive and Defensive Linemen
    and the Offensive Coordinator were optimistic.
    Wild Boys are 10:0 favorites.

    In the second quarter the Wildboys made a mistake
    at a punt return and had to start on their 2 y line.

    The good defence crashed through the line and got a safety.

    7 : 2

    The following drives were fought hard, a lot of yellow flags
    on both sides show that the teams had flattering nerves.

    After some too short passes, where the receivers couldn't
    handle it. Two catches and a TD run gave the Pirates
    a 9-7 lead. This was halftime.

    I went to the opposite side. Pirates have a press consultant.
    She told me, the Pirates have a really young team with an
    American Coach. Only 1 American citizen is allowed to play
    on the field. Pirates have 1 DEF and 1 OFF player.

    View attachment 1155

    Defensive Back Christian is optimistic, they can handle the lead.

    View attachment 1156

    The Flag reminds me of some black and silver team,
    we San Diego Fans don't like to see. ... and black and yellow
    is another combination we like to be against.

    On the Nauheim side the favorite team has got a little anxious.
    Nauheim has been in the Upper League finals twice in the last 5 years and didn't succeed yet.

    But the team found to their true offence play.

    Short runs and long passes.

    View attachment 1159
    View attachment 1158

    They got 3 unanswered TDs. One a catch and run TD from the
    50 yard line.

    so 14: 9
    21: 9
    28: 9 was the spectators applause.

    I logged in without my name and saw no pictures,
    only written "attachment". But doubleclick opened the pictures.

    I have three pics for a finish.

    Handshake between both teams after the game
    Thank you Frankfurt Pirates for a good event.
