Rota improves to 3-0 and grabs spot in quarters
ROTA, Spain -- A battle of undefeated Central region foes devolved into a blowout Saturday.
The host Rota Admirals outclassed the International School of Brussels Raiders 45-12 on Saturday, clinching one of eight spots in the upcoming DODDS-Europe Division II quarterfinals in the process.
Rota pulled away early with a 28-point first quarter and cruised to their third victory in as many games. The resurgent Admirals will advance to the postseason for the second straight season, continuing a remarkable turnaround from a winless 2013 campaign.
Andrew Fleming and Andres Torres led Rota with two rushing touchdowns apiece. Fleming carried 14 times for a game-high 168 yards; Torres needed just four handoffs to gather 97 rushing yards. Jake Anderson and Marc Magwood scored a rushing touchdown apiece for the Admirals.
Torres added an interception and a fumble recovery for the Rota defense.
James Daly rushed 16 times for 108 yards and a touchdown for ISB.
