Rota shuts out Naples to remain perfect

By STARS AND STRIPES Published: September 28, 2019

NAPLES, Italy -- The visiting Rota Admirals dispatched the Naples Wildcats 27-0 on Saturday in a DODEA-Europe Division II football matchup.

Rota scored all four of its touchdowns on the ground, with Brenon Colvin providing two rushing touchdowns and Josh Holz and Wes Penta pitching in one apiece.

The win sends the Admirals into next weekend's league-wide bye with an undefeated divisional record. Rota is tied with idle defending champion Aviano atop the five-team league.

The Admirals and Saints clinched spots in the four-team playoff with the result. Vicenza, SHAPE and Naples are still fighting for the other two spots.

Rota next takes on SHAPE on Oct. 12, while Naples is off until Oct. 19, when it will also face SHAPE.
