KAISERSLAUTERN, Germany - The new kids on the Division I block improved to 2-0 overall and 2-0 in D-I North on Saturday, as newcomer Filton pushed around Kaiserslautern, 37-14.

The British team, in their debut season playing a DODDS-Europe schedule, jumped out to a 23-7 halftime lead and collected its second straight double-digit over a team of American teens.

Jordan Eaton broke TD runs of 45 and 60 yards for Filton, but those weren’t the only big plays the Brits produced Saturday. Quarterback Jamie Cunningham connected with Mitch Wilson and Daniel Vickery for scoring passes which covered 50 and 45 yards, respectively.

Ashley Hopkins ran 10 yards for a touchdown, and Eaton kicked a 30-yard field goal to account for Filton’s other scores.

Kaiserslautern quarterback Josh Fry, who plunged into the end zone from a yard out in the first half, passed for 216 yards, coach Tom Burriss said by telephone Saturday, including a 56-yard touchdown pass to Don Cobb just after halftime. That cut the Red Raiders’ gap to 23-14, but the Raiders (0-2) could get no closer.

Filton put the game away with two fourth-quarter touchdowns despite the standout defensive play of safety Alex Curry and cornerback Patrick Burns, Burriss said.

Fry also connected with Treyton Simmons with a 66-yard pass play that carried to the Filton 15-yard line, but the Filton defense held.
