Spring season in the books

We have reached the summer break of the 2016 season in the Danish National League. The spring season was good to the Towers as we racked up a 6-1 record, signed a major sponsorship deal, broke in our new stadium and showed off new uniforms. 

All in all, not bad..

We have played seven of the ten games in the regular season. Three at home, beating the Rebels, Demons and Razorbacks, while we played four road games, beating the Stallions, Rebels, Gold Diggers and losing to the Razorbacks.

We’re the top ranked offense in the league, scoring 266 points and also the top ranked defense, allowing only 76 point. That averages out to a score of 38-11 pr game. Our only loss came at the hands of the Razorbacks, who beat us 31-30 on a Saturday night in Vejle.

Early in the year we were very happy and proud to sign a sponsorship deal with AIRTOX International. It’s a deal that has helped and will help the Towers in a number of ways. Most visibly, our new uniforms bear AIRTOX’ logo on the backs of the jerseys and along the side of the right legs.

The new uniforms come with both purple and white jerseys. On the day the uniforms were shown off to fans and the public at large, our coaches and players had chosen all-white uniforms. It was a beautiful day and the uniforms looked great.

Add to that the fact that we beat the defending champions and broke in our new stadium in those new uniforms and it doesn’t get much better. Don’t forget to watch our highlight video from the game…!

Having been away from our regular stadium field for two years has been tough. But the newly renovated field, with new fan facilities, was worth waiting for. We had each of the 300 seats filled and a lot of fans standing, when we beat the Razorbacks. We couldn’t have asked for a better or louder home crowd. This bodes well for the future of Tower Nation.

Now the Summer break awaits. On August 16th at 14:00 (2 p.m.) we host the Aalborg 89ers. We hope to see all of our fans again then. Until then; thank you for being Towers fans and enjoy your summers.

Towers to show off brand new uniforms

Towers nye jerseysThe Towers will take the field in brand new uniforms in tomorrow’s homecoming game. Just in time for the big game, our Polish supplier delivered the uniforms at the doorstep – literally – of head coach Peter Herbild at 3 am last night. 

As if the rematch against the Razorbacks tomorrow and the fact that we’re returning to our stadium field wasn’t enough to get excited about, we will show off our new uniforms tomorrow. And for the first time in about a decade we will have both purple and white jerseys.

Team manager Lene Schubert has announced that our fans will be treated to all-white uniforms tomorrow. So if you haven’t already signed up for the game, make sure to check our Facebook event and come out.

Towers handle Demons at home

Behind strong play from QB Kasper Skyum and the rest of the offense, the Towers rolled to a 50-12 win over the Amager Demons on Sunday, June 12th.

Big plays were the order of the day, as Kasper Skyum completed deep passes to practically the entire WR-corps. WR Lasse Tor, especially, had a big day, but WR Frederik Myrup had a long TD catch of his own.

In what is becoming a trend RB Anton Witmeur outraced the defense for a big TD on one of the very first offensive plays of the game.

Defensively, the Towers played a good game, but two big plays by the Demons ended up costing 12 points. TE Jonas Petterson hauled in an impressive one-handed catch for the Demons’ first TD. Sadly, Petterson would later leave the game in an ambulance after sustaining a scary arm injury, while tackling Towers FB Jannik Lindén.

Later, Demons WR Frederik Normann scored an impressive touchdown despite tight coverage by the Towers defense. Demons RB Mads Hyrsting, filling in for his older brother Lars Hyrsting, gave the Demons good field position on a several occasions.

Interestingly, Towers WR Frederik Myrup was used on defense for the first time and he notched his first ever sack on his very first snap.

The win didn’t come from free, though, as Towers defensive backs Christian Berg, a U19 player, and Mads Sydendal went down with injuries that required medical attention. Both were released from hospital later the same day to recover at home.

This was our first game at home, since the season opener on April 17th and it came after a tough stretch of four straight away games. The Towers, nonetheless, now own a 5-1 record and the second place in the National League, while the Demons are 2-4 at the sixth place.

Our next game will be a big one and one you surely don’t want to miss. We play our first game at our stadium field since renovation at the stadium began in 2014.

That game is against the Triangle Razorbacks and kick-off is at 14:00 (2 pm) on Sunday, June 19th. Tickets are 50 kr. per person. Hot dogs and drinks will be for sale at the field.

Come out and help us celebrate returning home to our stadium field at Gentofte Sportspark (click for map).

A Facebook-event that you can join and invite friends to will be posted shortly. And look for our preview video on Facebook, Youtube and Twitter, soon.
