This was a disastorous beginning of the game for the Catalans who had to mend twelve points of deficit of the game played Nice, plus the six scored down by Dauphins on the first play. The GAP Badalona Dracs went out for all in the teams first offensive and after a big series of moves moving chains with ease, Rubén Beltrán would manage to equal the meeting with a touchdown. With 6-6 the French attack went out for the first time and the quarterback Joseph Scibilia saw as they were intercepting a pass for the Mexican Marcos Carmona, recovering the possession for the places in the watershed of the field.

The first minutes of the meeting were vibrant and the spectacular
moves were happening repeatedly. The young man César Brugnani would manage to move forward for the first time Dracs with a big career of 30 yards that was meaning 12-6, taking the exhilaration to the bleachers of the crowd of Montigalá. The French team reacted rapidly and after a long pass of 60 yards of Scibilia on Gilles Blua, these were located to 15 yards of the endzone, from where the American quarterback tuned in again to Willem Siliverio who caught the pass inside the end zone, placing again the equality in the scoreboard.

the offensive plays and movement of the ball on both teams. With many nerves in the field of game and a game opposite to that of the first minutes, it went over to the half part with 12-20 favorably to Dauphins.
After the rest it did not change the attitude of two teams and the party became very coarse and slightly showy.

The rain did act of presence again and both sets saw how their offensives were becoming inoperative.

The third quarter passed without anything that to stand out and with the same one 12-20 went over to the last partial one. Marcos Carmona blocked a punt kick of Daulphins and Bert Whigham managed to recover the ball on the yard 7 of the daulphins side, from where in the following play Rubén Beltrán obtained his second touchdown with a new personal move that meant 18-20.

The proper Catalan quarterback would equal next the game at twenty with the additional 2 point try. Those of Badalona, conscious of the difficulty to mend the qualifying one, kept on attacking and being risky, thinking about how to obtain another European victory but the one who finally took the victory was the rival, to to manage to score by means of a run play by Gilles Blua. The extra point transformed by Willem
Silverio would place the definitive one 20-27.
