AMERICAN FOOTBALL

Sígrs Finish Season with Semifinal Loss

The good news: the Brno Sígrs reached the postseason in their first year in the top league of American football in the Czech Republic.

The bad news: the Sígrs had to play the undefeated Prague Black Panthers and lost, 63-0, on Sunday.

The Black Panthers will play the Aquaponik Ostrava Steelers in the championship game on Saturday in Ostrava. The Steelers advanced by beating the Prague Lions, 31-24.

The Sigrs officially started six years ago. They lost the title game of the Bitters Silver Bowl, the second-league title game, last year. This year they were 4-6 in their first season in the top league.

During the regular season, the Black Panthers had the best rushing offense and the best rushing defense. The Sigrs were second in both categories, but, in the title game, they were unable to rely on either.
