Defending Division I champion Wiesbaden earned a 32-17 win against rival Vilseck and improved to 3-0 under Friday night lights. But fans who watched the first half saw a game very much in doubt.
The defending champion Wiesbaden Warriors strode into Kaiserslautern's stadium Friday night and thumped the host Raiders 40-3, celebrating another win on the same field where they won the 2013 DODDS-Europe Division I championship.
Longtime Division II powers Naples, SHAPE and Vicenza will move up to Division I in all team sports except for football in a divisional realignment announced this week by DODDS-Europe Athletic Director Karen Seadore.
