week Four 1999, Eurocup game
*= Including playoffs & EuroCup
*= Including playoffs & EuroCup.
15th, OSI (2-0) at Roskilde (1-1), Roskilde Stadium, 2 PM.
1999: Roskilde is a good team, but several notches down from what they were when the team won the EuroCup in 1997. A player like Dian Sørensen now plays with the Aarhus Tigers. The Vikings on the other hand have their strongest team ever. The question is whether Roskilde can outsmart the Vikes on the day.
The Coaches: Bill Hartnell is in his first season coaching in Europe. He is a former Florida Gators offensive lineman turned player/coach. Chris Gauvreau is a Canadian also in his first year. He has had coaching experiences in France (Lyon Falcons), Switzerland (Landquart Broncos) and Canada (University of Ottawa). The two coaches have never faced eachother before.
Next Week: Roskilde travel to Aarhus
to get their annual spanking by the Tigers. OSI travel to Trondheim to face Nidaros
About Roskilde: Roskilde is a city of about 60,000 people located 30km west of Copenhagen. It is most famous for the Viking ship museum and the Roskilde Cathedral, where all major Danish royalty are married, crowned and buried. Not to forget the Roskilde festival, a huge happening during the summer.
