Nakon furioznog starta sezone i ulaska u Top 20 listu Evropskih klubova, Zmajevi su završili sezonu neočekivanim porazom od Inđije na domaćem terenu. Teška utakmica, veliko nevreme i Bogovi fudbala ovaj put su bili na strani Indijanaca koji su slavili rezultatom 28 – 35 u izjednačenoj utakmici do poslednjeg sudijskog zvižduka.

After a furious start of the season and entering the Top 20 list of European teams, the Dragons ended the season with an unexpected defeat from Indjija on the home field. Tough game, a big storm and the gods of football were on the side of the Indians who celebrated with a score of 28 – 35 in the equal match to the last whistle.

Protiv nekih sila se ne može preći lako, a Zmajevi su se sa njima susreli u sredini sezone, nakon prvog istorijskog trijumfa protiv kragujevčana. Do tada nepobeđeni, Zmajevi su izgubili oštrinu i dve utakmice za redom od Vukova i Novog Sada. Ali svojim ovogodišnjim nastupom napravili su veliki korak u svetu Američkog fudbala. Više Srbijom ne vladaju 3 tima, sada je borba malo teža, a liga daleko kvalitetnija.

Against some forces you have to fight off the field, and the Dragons met with them in the middle of the season, after the first historical triumph against the Kragujevac. Undefeated until that moment, the Dragons lost their sharpness and two games in a row against Vukovi and Novi Sad. But with this year’s performance, they made a big step in the world of American football. Serbia is not dominated by three teams anymore, now the fight is a bit harder, and the league is far better.

Kišoviti dan te subote obeležili su odlično predvođeni napadi obe ekipe, koji su razbijali odbrane jedni drugima do poslednjeg sudijskog zvižduka. Nažalost pobedu Inđiji doneo je Fambl u vraćanju kikoffa, ispuštena lopta u sred pljuska bacila je u crno ceo tim Zmajeva. Umesto napada, morala je odbrana na teren koja jednostavno nije imala rešenje za sjajnu igru mladog Borkovića, kao ni odbrana Indiansa za sjajan napad Zmajeva na ovoj utakmici.

The rainy Saturday marked the well-executed offense of both teams, who shattered defense to each other until the last second. Unfortunately for loss, one mistake was enough by Dragons, fumble in kickoff return and dropped ball during the rain was enough to defeat. Instead of the offense, there was a defense on the field that simply had no solution for the great game of young Borković, as well as the Indians defense for a great Dragons offense in this game.

Za Indijance sve poene postigao je Aleksandar Borković (5 TD), dok su za Zmajeve poentirali redom počevši od Milana Nikolića (x2), Željko Kostić (121y trčanjem 1 TD), Željko Novak, a sve njih uspešnim izvođenjem ekstra poena podupreo je Uroš Jović. Veliki broj jardi takođe je pretrčao Pavle Plamenac (125y) u vraćanju kikoffa, nažalost on je i ispustio loptu usled kiše u poslednjoj četvrtini i povrede u prvoj koja ga je sprečila da adekvatno odreaguje u toj situaciji.

For the Indians all points were scored by Aleksandar Borković (5 TD), and for the Dragons Milan Nikolic (x2), Zeljko Kostic (121y running 1 TD), Zeljko Novak, and all of the TD were crowned with extra points by Uros Jovic. A large number of yards also ran Pavel Plamenac (125y) in kickoff return, unfortunately he dropped the ball in the last quarter and the injury in the first one that prevented him from adequately responding to that situation.

Bez obzira na poslednje rezultate, Zmajevi su dve sezone nakon ispadanja u drugu ligu uspeli da ostvare zavidan rezultat u sezoni 2017. Od 11 utakmica odigranih (dve u pripremnom periodu) samo 3 poraza zaslužuje svako poštovanje. Činjenica je da igra Zmajeva nije bila na nivou do ove sezone, svojim nizom pobeda stigli su i do Top 20 rangiranih timova Evrope. U tom trenutku odbrana Zmajeva je držala drugo mesto po broju primljenih poena.

Regardless of the latest results, the Dragons managed to achieve an enviable result in the 2017 season after they got back from the second league two years ago. Of the 11 games played (two friendly), only 3 losses. The fact is that the Dragons game was not on this level before the 2017 season, with these results the Dragons even reached the Top 20 ranked European teams. At that point, the Dragons defense held second place in the number of points received in Europe.

Redom su ove godine dolazile pobede, pripremne utakmice protiv Bora i Sarajeva, PLS i Cefl Kup od Pančeva pa sve do meča protiv Kragujevca. Pobedu na terenu niko ne može oduzeti, to svi dobro znaju u Srbiji. Nisu Zmajevi bili pripremljeni na te poteze, nisu znali da se i tako dobijaju utakmice, ali dobro znaćemo za sledeću godinu i pripremićemo se i za taj način odbrane jardi.

Win after win in this year, friendly games against Bor and Sarajevo, PLS and Cefl Cup started with Pancevo until the match against Kragujevac. Nobody can take the win on the field, they all know that very well in Serbia. The Dragons were not ready for the off-field moves, we did not know how to win matches at „green table“, but we’ll know that for the next year and also prepare for this sort of game.
