Bermudian Devwah Whaley scored a touchdown as Dresden Monarchs clinched their first German Bowl in Frankfurt on Saturday.

The Monarchs beat Schwabisch Hall Unicorns 28-19 in the 42nd edition of Germany’s Super Bowl in front of 14,378 at the Deutsche Bank Park.

Monarchs, who lost in the 2013 final, were up against a side who had won the title game four times previously, but were deserved winners after taking control in the fourth quarter.

The Monarchs scored their first points of the game in the seventh minute to take a 7-0 lead, only for the Unicorns to pull it back to 7-6.

Running back Whaley came close to scoring the second touchdown early in the second quarter, but fumbled before getting into the end zone.

The Unicorns began working the ball towards the opposing end zone and scored a second touchdown to take a 12-7 lead into the half-time break.

Another quick touchdown in the third quarter enabled the Unicorns to extend their lead to 19-7. Whaley brought the Monarchs back into the game with a touchdown to make it 19-14 seven minutes into the quarter.

They went into the final quarter trailing 19-17 after a field goal by Florian Finke. Five minutes before the end of the game Finke scored another field goal, now Dresden were in front by a slim 20-19 margin.

Another crucial touchdown 2½ minutes before the end when Radim Kalous ran into the end zone saw the Monarchs extend their lead after the subsequent two-point conversion made it 28-19.
