NFL Europe Recaps From Saturday, June 19
Posted: Sun June 20, 1999 at 1:10 a.m EDTAMSTERDAM 30, SCOT CLAYMORES 22
AMSTERDAM (Ticker) -- Jim Kubiak threw three touchdown passes and James Kidd scored three times as the Amsterdam Admirals withstood a late rally to edge the Scottish Claymores, 30-22. Safety Greg Williams had three interceptions for Amsterdam (4-6), which built a 30-14 lead on a six-yard TD pass from Kubiak to Cory Geason midway through the fourth quarter before the Claymores fought back. Carolina Panthers-allocated quarterback Dameyune Craig threw a five-yard TD pass to Donald Sellers to close the gap to 30-22 with 2:36 left. The drive was kept alive when an interception by Keith Council was called back for holding. Chris Dolan's onside kick was recovered by Sellers and Craig moved the Claymores downfield. Craig found Sellers in the end zone on 2nd-and-goal, but the wideout was unable to keep his feet in bounds. A delay of game penalty saw the Claymores face a long third down and Chicago Bears-allocated defensive back Williams claimed his third interception to snuff the comeback attempt. Kubiak was intercepted on the game's opening drive before throwing a 26-yard TD strike to Kidd for the only scoring of the first quarter. Silvio Diliberto struck the upright with the extra point. RHEIN 38, BERLIN 10
DUSSELDORF, Germany (Ticker) -- Kenny Bynum ran for 135 yards and a pair of touchdowns as the defending champion Rhein Fire kept alive their World Bowl aspirations with a 38-10 blowout of the Berlin Thunder. The Fire won their final three games to finish their season 6-4. They hold out hopes of taking the other spot in the World Bowl -- here in Rheinstadion on June 27 -- beside the Frankfurt Galaxy. Rhein needs Frankfurt to beat the Barcelona Dragons on Sunday. After missing a field goal on their opening drive and seeing Berlin go ahead 3-0 on a 19-yard field goal by Axel Kruse, the Fire produced a series of big plays on defense and special teams and blew apart the Thunder with a five-touchdown burst. Late in the first quarter, facing fourth down in their own territory, the Fire lined up to punt but snapped the ball short to linebacker Jamie Baisley, who charged 59 yards down the middle of the field for a touchdown. Just over a minute later, the Fire were ahead 14-3 after cornerback Cedric Donaldson intercepted Chris Dittoe to set up a 2-yard touchdown run by Bynum, an allocation from the San Diego Chargers. Berlin was forced to punt on its next drive. Fire receiver Larry Ryans fielded Charlie Pierce's kick at the 3-yard line and exploded up the left sideline for a league-record 97-yard TD return.
