Admirals 14, Galaxy 12
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands (AP) _ Karmeeleyah McGill returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown and David Jones caught an 18-yard touchdown pass from Jamie Martin to give the Amsterdam Admirals a 14-12 win over the Frankfurt Galaxy on Saturday.
All the Admirals’ points came in the second-quarter after Paul Justin’s 5-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Olive gave the Galaxy a 7-0 lead.
First McGill picked up a fumble by quarterback Jim Miller and returned it for a score, then Martin, on loan from the Rams, found Jones for a score for Amsterdam (2-0).
Daron Alcorn’s 22-yard field goal to start the last quarter for Frankfurt (1-1) cut the deficit to 14-10. But a late Frankfurt drive ended with a fumble at the 1-yard-line and Amsterdam took a deliberate safety on fourth down to end the scoring.
