FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) _ Bobby Phillips powered his way to two touchdowns Saturday as the Frankfurt Galaxy rallied for a 29-17 win over the World Bowl-bound Barcelona Dragons.

Phillips carried the ball 20 times for 100 yards.

The Dragons led 10-0 in the first quarter on Jesus Angoy’s 31-yard field goal, followed by Jon Kitma’s 2-yard pass to Sheddrick Wilson.

Frankfurt then took a 21-10 halftime lead as Phillips burst up the middle for scores of 4 and 1 yards, the second coming with 17 seconds left in the second period.

Galaxy QB Chad May also flipped a 7-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter against Barcelona, which is already assured a spot in the World Bowl because it had the best record in the first half of the season.

In the second half, the Galaxy increased its lead to 29-10 on a safety and field goals of 32 and 42 yards by Ralf Kleinmann.

Kitna then threw a late score for Barcelona, hitting Tyree Davis for 36 yards. He finished the day 17-for-35 for 151 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.
