BITBURG AIR BASE, Germany — The unbeaten defending European Division II champion Bitburg Barons spread the wealth Saturday, sending seven different players into the end zone in a 55-6 European quarterfinal victory over the Hohenfels Tigers.

Corey Evans, who carried the ball just three times for 50 yards, ran for seven- and 38-yard touchdowns on two of them. He also ran for a two-point conversion.

The other Barons who ran for TDs were Kyle Edgar, who carried 10 times for 97 yards; Matt Flood, who totaled 25 yards on three rushes; Corey Bashon, who scored from 22 yards out on his only run of the game; Aaron Mayfield, who gained 19 yards on two runs and added a two-point conversion run; John Downey, who rushed three times for 15 yards, and Evan Less, who scored on a five-yard burst in the fourth quarter.

Hohenfels, which ended its season 3-3, got onto the scoreboard in the fourth quarter on an 83-yard kickoff return TD by Xavier Davis. From scrimmage, however, the Tigers could do little against a Baron defense led by Erick Matos (interception, two pass-breakups, five tackles)’ Zach Nichols (eight tackles, one pass-breakup); Gary Horn (seven tackles, two for losses); Shaquille Williams (seven tackles); Tain Oian (six tackles, two of them for losses, an interception and a pass-breakup), and Flood (interception, pass-breakup, three tackles).

Bitburg improved to 6-0 and will host Naples (4-2) Saturday in one Division II semifinal game. International School of Brussels travels to Mannheim for the second time in two weeks in the other semifinal game this weekend.
