Naples continued its dominance in DODEA-Europe Division II football and set up a home championship date with a 42-0 win over Rota on Monday afternoon in Naples, Italy.
Having already defeated the Admirals by 95 points across two games during the regular season, the Wildcats (7-0) wasted little time Monday. Naples put up 28 points in the first quarter, starting with a 15-yard rush by Matteo Toliver.
Camden Kasparek then went to the air, connecting with Cameron Collins and Damien Tiumalu for touchdowns of 3 and 20 yards, respectively. Kasparek was 6-for-8 passing for 100 yards.
Collins then added a 53-yard punt return to finish the Wildcats’ quick start.
Chris White tacked on a 35-yard score in the second quarter, and Toliver finished the scoring with a 5-yard run to invoke the mercy rule.
The Wildcats offense now has amassed 321 points through seven games for an average of 45.8 points per game.
The Naples defense pitched its fifth shutout of the season. Toliver and Gab-riel Doran led the way with seven tackles, while Tiumalu picked off a pass.
The only team to put any points on the board against the Wildcats is their opponent in Saturday’s championship game, Aviano.
Naples has defeated the Saints twice this season — 41-7 on Sept. 17 in Naples and 34-14 on Oct. 1 in Aviano.
Brussels 38, Sigonella 22: Monday in Brussels, the Brigands punched their tickets to Saturday’s Division III final in Kaiserslautern with a win over the Jaguars.
Demarkus Charles and William Pierce each eclipsed 100 yards and scored twice on the ground.
On special teams, Rio Rogers recovered an onside kick, and Wilson Stewart snatched a game-sealing interception for the Brigands.
Brussels will face Spangdahlem in the final. The Brigands defeated the Sentinels, 39-36, on the road on Sept. 16 in a game in which Brussels went up 15 points early and hung on for the victory.
