STUTTGART, Germany -- The Patch Panthers unleashed a potent passing attack Saturday in a 51-7 victory over the visiting Lakenheath Lancers.

New Panther quarterback Holten Sparling continued his impressive debut campaign with perhaps the gaudiest DODDS-Europe passing stat line of the season: 11 completions on 14 attempts, 244 yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions. He added a one-yard run for a sixth touchdown.

Sparling distributed his throws to an assortment of receivers. Garrett Becker caught a pair of touchdowns for 55 and 31 yards; Sean Loeben corralled two scores for 23 and 21 yards; and Lewis Moorhead handled the longest touchdown of the day on a 73-yard reception.

Sparling tacked on another six points to his tally via extra points, making six of seven attempts.

Patch proved capable on the ground as well. In addition to Sparling's rush, Jamie Ensley ran in for an 18-yard score. A 28-yard field goal by Eli Spencer rounded out the Panther onslaught.

Ensley also starred defensively, accounting for two of the team's four interceptions. Trey Hernandez made six tackles for the Panthers, who improved to 3-1 entering next weekend's regular-season finale against defending champion Wiesbaden. A Patch victory could create a three-way tie for first with the Warriors and Ramstein.

Winless Lakenheath had its moments offensively. Zach Adamson ran 17 times for 75 yards and Lamont Scott caught three passes for 76. Lancer defender Colton Menges made nine tackles and forced a fumble.
