NFL Europe Recap (Amsterdam-Rhein)
Posted: Sat May 1, 1999 at 6:34 p.m. EDTRHEIN 30, AMSTERDAM 20
RHEIN, Germnay (Ticker) -- Kenny Bynum set a league record with 214 yards on 25 carries and Derrick Clark became NFL Europe's all-time touchdown leader as the Rhein Fire defeated the Amsterdam Admirals, 30-20. Bynum did not reach the end zone, but he still eclipsed the individual rushing record set three years ago by Tony Vinson of the London Monarchs. Clark had 114 yards on 22 carries for the defending World Bowl champions, who set a single-game league mark for rushing yards with 323. His 19th career touchdown, from 10 yards, opened the scoring 5:17 into the game. Mike Cherry, allocated by the New York Giants, completed 7-of-17 passes for 100 yards with an interception, but he threw a pair of touchdowns, including an 18-yarder to Kez McCorvey with 3:03 left in the opening quarter as Rhein grabbed a 14-0 lead. The Fire (1-2) held Amsterdam (1-2) to only 23 yards in the first half and took a 17-0 advantage into the locker room after 49-year-old Manfred Burgsmuller kicked a 22-yard field goal with 72 seconds left. The Admirals cut the deficit to 10 on Clyde Johnson's 88-yard interception return for a score, but Rhein added 10 points before the end of the third quarter. Cherry found Anthony McKinney from 26 yards as the Fire grabbed a 27-7 lead. Backup quarterback Dan Cawley, allocated by the Buffalo Bills, made it respectable in the fourth quarter with an 18-yard scoring strike to Shawn McWashington and a nine-yard TD run. Cawley finished 15-of-23 for 177 yards in place of Dan Gonzalez, who was 6-of-18 for 36 yards.
