And once again it had been a tight clash in front of 27,439 after only very few matches between the Galaxy and the Fire had seen clear winners.
In recent years both of them had lost their dominance to the Berlin Thunder, where Peter Vaas had started a line of 3 World Bowl wins.
In particular the Rhein Fire had been struggling a lot recently and their fans had been dying to experience a win while the Galaxy had won at least one World Bowl in recent times.
