Galaxy Defeat Centurions 20-10
COLOGNE, Germany (AP) _ Jermaine Lewis scored a touchdown off a blocked punt Saturday to help the Frankfurt Galaxy beat the Cologne Centurions 20-10, spoiling the home debut of NFL Europe’s newest team.
Chad Hayes blocked a punt by Steve Cheek and Lewis recovered, starting a 13-point fourth-quarter for the Galaxy (2-0).
A few minutes later, Leonard Henry ran off left tackle for a 22-yard touchdown to give the Galaxy a 20-3 lead.
Cologne (0-2) replaced the Barcelona Dragons and drew 9,134 to its first home game. Rob Adamson threw a 12-yard scoring pass to Carl Morris for Cologne’s lone TD of the day.
The Centurions were again plagued by special teams problems. Last week, Cheek had a bad snap go over his head for a fourth-quarter safety, giving the Rhein Fire a 26-25.
