HEIDELBERG, Germany - The Heidelberg Lions unleashed a ground-gobbling attack that netted 405 yards of total offense Saturday in a 47-21 victory over Wiesbaden.

Sterling Jones rushed 16 times for 176 yards and five touchdowns, and his 80-yard burst in the second quarter was the biggest gain on Heidelberg’s big-play afternoon.

Two big plays, however, occurred when Wiesbaden had the ball.

Chris Cuthbert, who rushed eight times for 133 yards, returned an intercepted pass 60 yards for a touchdown, and Jimmie McBride came up with a 26-yard interception return for a TD. All told, Heidelberg penetrated the Wiesbaden offense for eight tackles for loss and two sacks.

Wiesbaden, which ran 74 offensive plays to just 32 for Heidelberg, climbed on the back of returning All-European Daniel Harris. The 6-foot, 190-pounnd junior carried the ball on 36 of those 74 plays, gained 187 yards and scored all three all Wiesbaden TDs.

Kevin Teal carried 10 times for 72 yards for the Warriors.
