FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) _ Pepe Pearson scored from 1 yard out with 1:12 to play Sunday and the Rhein Fire went on to a 13-10 victory over the Scottish Claymores in World Bowl 2000.

The Fire's victory wasn't assured until Roger Hart's 40-yard field goal attempt with four seconds to play went wide left.

The game featured the league's two best passers in Kevin Daft of the Claymores and Danny Wuerffel of the Fire, but neither looked sharp.

Daft, who led NFL Europe with a league-record 107.3 quarterback rating, was 16-of-29 for 177 yards and an interception.

Wuerffel, the 1996 Heisman Trophy winner from Florida who finished with a 107.2 quarterback rating, was 12-of-30 for only 90 yards with two interceptions, but he led the Fire on a 43-yard touchdown drive for the winning score.

Rhein which trailed for much of the game, opened the scoring on Manfred Burgsmuller's 21-yard field goal in the first quarter.

Scotland, though, wasted little time in getting on the scoreboard, going 75 yards in three plays, capped by MVP Aaron Stecker's 36-yard touchdown, the longest scoring run in World Bowl history.

Stecker rushed 13 times for 92 yards.

Hart's 32-yard field goal with 9:03 left in the half drew Rhein within 7-6. Burgsmuller answered with a 23-yard field goal with 4:59 remaining in the second quarter.
