BRUSSELS, Belgium -- The SHAPE Spartans clinched their spot in the DODDS-Europe Division II playoffs Friday with a 36-12 defeat of International School of Brussels.

SHAPE ramped up its offense in the second half to put away a Raider squad that pulled within three points in the third quarter. The Spartans will now visit No. 4 Hohenfels next week in the opening round of the playoffs.

Marten Pardo caught five passes for 107 yards, while Filip Havlena carried 20 times for 55 yards and a touchdown for ISB.

Trey Kirklen racked up 221 yards and three touchdowns on 25 carries for SHAPE. Noah Parker found Isaac Yunevich for a 59-yard touchdown pass that staked SHAPE to a 13-0 first-half lead.

ISB also qualified for the playoffs thanks to Vicenza's loss to Hohenfels on Saturday. The Raiders will play at No. 2 Ansbach.
