May 5, «Kyiv Capitals» – «Uzhgorod Lumberjacks». Match preview

On Sunday, May 5, a match of the 2nd round of the SUPER LEAGUE 2019 ULAF American Football Championship will take place between the capital «Capitals» and the guests from «Uzhgorod Lumberjacks».

At the same time, this is already the second round for Kievites, and the Uzhgorod team is just starting their participation in SUPER LEAGUE. And there is one “BUT” – the players of the «Lumberjacks» have already played HFL several times for the local team Nredygazy «Tigers». In turn, «Kyiv Capitals» take part in the Higher League HFL as a club! Unfortunately, there they have not yet managed to achieve victories. But in the Super League there are achievements – in the framework of the first round they participated in a derby with «Slavs», and then «Capitals» won a “dry” victory.

What is the forecast? The field will be very hot. There is no history of rivalry between these two clubs. But many players from the capital club already had the honor to play against a team from Uzhgorod. And each time the result was different. In «Lumberjacks», for example, there will not be their truly star quarterback Vasily Jordan, but there may be a surprise in the form of legionaries from the Hungarian League. «Caps» will definitely show perseverance in the attack thanks to the well-known combination Cherepivsky – Serbin. Plus a rebuilt line of attack and defense, which is always on top. The result is very difficult to predict. But will it be interesting? Definitely! Come to the stadium to see for yourself.
