The Cologne Centurions had a great time when the Rhein Fire had come over in 2007.
It was 20 degrees springtime weather and 22,154 fans in the Rhein Energy Stadium saw a very close game that the Centurions were able to win by 20:17 after a Nick Novak 49 yd. Field Goal.
And those 32:09 minutes possession time were reflecting that both teams had been pretty much at the same level.
Quarterback Cody Pickett had kept his team well in the race until the 4rth quarter with a 17:10 lead despite 5 sacks and 2 interceptions. During the entire game he had completed 17 from 28 passes for for 171 yards and 1 TD for a 60.3 rating.
He also rushed for 1 yard with 2 attempts.
Centurions QB Erik Meyer had completed 10 from 16 passes for 171 yards and 1 TD by only 1 interception. And with 4 attempts he had rushed for 31 yards, what gave him a 93.05 rating.

Centurions TE Werner Hippler had wanted to ad another World Bowl to his lovely collection from those golden Galaxy days.
