NFL Europe Recaps From Saturday, May 29
Posted: Sun May 30, 1999 at 1:06 a.m EDTBARCELONA 28, AMSTERDAM 17
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (Ticker) -- Brian Finneran caught two fourth-quarter touchdown passes as the Barcelona Dragons edged ahead in the race to World Bowl '99 with a 28-17 victory over the Amsterdam Admirals. The Dragons used a late rally to severely damage the championship game aspirations of the Admirals, who suddenly are struggling at home. Amsterdam has lost two in a row at home and three straight overall. Finneran caught seven passes for 205 yards and three touchdowns. The yardage was the second-best total in NFL Europe history and the scoring catches tied the league mark. Barcelona's Todd Bouman threw for 292 yards. The Dragons trailed 17-14 when Finneran, the league's fourth-leading receiver, snared a 17-yard TD pass from Bouman just before the two-minute warning. He secured the victory with his seventh score of the year from 10 yards out late in the game. In the first quarter, Admirals cornerback Dexter Seigler picked off Bouman and returned it 52 yards deep into Dragons territory, setting up David Thompson's one-yard scoring run.
