A couple mistakes made the difference as the Towers battled less than ideal conditions and matched the reigning IFAF Europe Champions League winners, the Roosters, on their home turf in Velodrom Helsinki.
It was raining cats and dogs from the get-go when the second – and final – session of European football this season was played between the Towers and last year's winners, Helsinki Roosters. Even though the conditions made it very tough for both teams Helsinki came out looking like that didn't matter at all.
Couldn't make it to Helsinki today? That's too bad, but we've got you covered. Here are two ways to follow the game. And the latest interview with coach Herbild.
As always we will be live tweeting the game at @CPHTowersLive. Furthermore we got word that the Helsinki Roosters are posting live stats from the game. We are a bit unsure whether the page auto-updates, but if not there is a refresh-button at the top right corner.
As the clouds over Helsinki grew more and more threatening, the last Towers players and staff have arrived in the Finnish capital city ahead of tomorrow's Champions League clash.
Despite being in the same group of the IFAF Europe Champions League last season, the Roosters and Towers have never faced each other before. Both teams are reigning national champions and the Roosters even reigning Champions League winners.
There are big games and then there are huge games. Saturday, April 18th, the Towers will host one of the latter. The defending Swedish champions visit the defending Danish champions in the IFAF Europe Champions League. Where else would you rather be….?
The Carlstad Crusaders and the Towers are no strangers. Just a year ago the two teams met in the Champions League as well, only that game was played in Karlstad.
Did you ever wonder what football is really like. From inside the helmet and pads? Well, stop wondering and find out! Give football a try on Saturday, January 31st.
The biggest football game of the year is less than a week away and the whole world is getting ready to watch. Are you one of the unfortunate people who love the game, but have not yet experienced the thrill of catching a perfectly thrown touchdown pass or the adrenaline kick of making a bone-jarring tackle?
Then the Towers have the solution. Join us on Rookie Day and let us show you what the sport is all about. We have teams for all age groups: Under 12, Under 14, Under 16, Under 19 and two adult teams (both an elite team in the National League and a second team in 'Danmarksserien').
The Towers will host a familiar opponent and travel to face a new one, when the 2015 IFAF Europe Champions League tournament kicks off in the spring.
The Carlstad Crusaders will visit Copenhagen and the Towers will head east to the Finnish capital to take on the Helsinki Roosters.
The Towers offense will feature a new face in 2015. The Towers have reached an agreement with running back B.J. Lee, formerly of SMU and JSU. Lee will join the Towers in March 2015.
Known for his blazing speed, B.J. will join an offensive unit that boasts an outstanding offensive line and aggressive wide receivers. The addition of Lee goes hand in hand with head coach Peter Herbild's ambitions of improving the offensive backfield prior to the 2015 season.
