Lokalopgøret mellem Copenhagen Towers og Herlev Rebels U16 så endnu engang Towers trække det lange strå.
Det tog blot Towers 6 spil at score første touchdown på et kort pass fra #7 Mikkel Jordahn til #40 Gustav Rørhauge . Efterfølgende lykkes det ikke for Towers at score en 2-point conversion, så stilling er 0-6 da Rebels overtager bolden. På dette tidspunkt i kampen er Herlevs farligste våben Towers defense, som flere gange går off-side og dermed giver Rebels en 1. down. Herefter lukker defense effektivt ned for både deres inside og outside runs.
Hours before kick-off the smell of barbeque drifted around the parking lot outside Gentofte Stadium. Several groups of fans and former players from near and far had arrived early to throw a tailgate party. Most likely, no-one traveled farther than former WR Michael Safko, who lives in Pittsburgh, PA, but had made changes to travel plans so that he could spend the night in Copenhagen and attend the game.
With a play-off spot already secured the Towers chose to rest QB JR Artozqui and instead play 30-year-old Brian Amaral, who once again donned a purple Towers jersey after he made his debut last week agains Søllerød Golddiggers. Brian is a jack-of-all-trades who can play QB, WR and DB.
The score of the game was almost identical to the score of the previous meeting between the two teams - only in reverse order.
A stellar performance by LB/RB Casper Jensen lead the way on Friday Night. Jensen played both defense and offense and did it so well that National Team head coach Lars Carlsen named Jensen the MVP (Most Valuable Player) of the game.
