Ansbach pounds Alconbury to return to title game
ANSBACH, Germany -- The Ansbach Cougars are back in the finals.
Ansbach, the runaway champion in last year's inaugural season of six-man football in DODEA-Europe Division III, defeated the Alconbury Dragons 65-0 on Saturday to clinch outright second place in the division.
Quarterback Dustin Martin headlined a slew of Cougar offensive stars with nine completions for 218 yards and four touchdowns. Keoni Ulloa-Galindo caught two touchdowns, while Josiah Jackson and Devin Jenkins handled one apiece. Jenkins also ran for 87 yards and two more touchdowns, while Jackson added a second touchdown via run. Josiah Quinland and Cooper Robertson tacked on rushing touchdowns for Ansbach.
Ulloa-Galindo led the Cougars with nine tackles. Jenkins made eight tackles and forced two fumbles, while Jackson contributed five tackles and recovered two fumbles.
Spencer Swapp led Alconbury with 16 carries for 61 yards and added four tackles. Ben Anderson led the Dragons with seven tackles.
With the win, the Cougars earn a second straight trip to the European title game, set for Nov. 2 at Kaiserslautern. Ansbach will take on the undefeated Spangdahlem Sentinels, their former archrival from the schools' Division II days.
Spangdahlem downed Ansbach 58-0 on Sept. 21.
