The Frankfurt Galaxy defeated the Amsterdam Admirals 22-7 on Saturday to win the World Bowl title for the NFL Europe league. The Galaxy counted on running back Butchie Wallace, who rushed for 138 yards and a touchdown in the second half. Wallace was named the MVP of the game.

"I couldn't believe it. I kept seeing the holes and I kept pounding and pounding," Wallace said.

At halftime, the Admirals held a 7-2 lead. That was the lowest scoring first half in the history of the World Bowl. Wallace is currently a free agent and does not have a job with an NFL team. He only carried the ball once in the first half before exploding with 17 carries in the second half.

Galaxy head coach Mike Jones stuck to the game plan of running the ball in the second half, handing the ball off on almost every single down.

"Without a question we are a running team and we did what we do best," Jones said.

The Admirals were the best passing team in the league, but the Galaxy had the top-ranked defense. The Admirals were attempting to become the first team to win back-to-back World Bowls in history.
