MONS, Belgium -- The Naples Wildcats seized the fourth and final spot in the DODEA-Europe Division II football playoffs Saturday with a 39-7 defeat of the host SHAPE Spartans.

Both teams entered the regular-season finale without a win in conference play. The loss excludes SHAPE from the semifinal round in the five-team league.

Tigus Hunter led the Wildcats with three rushing touchdowns, while JJ Kreiger and Keith Rascoe added a rushing touchdown apiece. Chosen Lokombe returned a punt for a touchdown and added an interception, while Joaquin Tun-Rauser made a team-high 11 tackles and recovered a fumble.

Naples will travel to Aviano next weekend for a semifinal game against the defending European champions.
