week six 1999, 1st division game
*= Including playoffs.
29th, Nidaros (0-2) at Eidsvoll (1-1), Bøn Stadium, 2 PM.
1999: Nidaros expected a tough year in the 1st division, and sees this season first of all as a learning experience. But they have provided solid play at times and did not look too shabby at the Trolls. Eidsvoll has built themselves into a contender. Although losing three out of three games in the EuroCup they were competitive. And last week's win over the Trolls exposed more of their talent.
The Coaches: Player/coach Jason Ready is in his 2nd season as a coach with the Domers. He brought the wishbone with him from his native California and introduced the Domers to the system. Jan "Janne" Johansson is in his first year as Head Coach of the 1814s. He has previously coached with Swedish side Uppsala Red Dogs (junior team for the Uppsala 86ers). The two coaches have never faced each other before.
Next Week: Nidaros face the Trolls
in Trondheim, which is a must-win game for them. Eidsvoll has a bye-week.
About Trondheim: Norways third biggest city houses the Nidaros Cathedral, from which the Domers took their name. It is also the home of the soccer club Rosenborg, probably the best known Norwegian sports team.
