Report

 

Turku, Finland, was the setting for the 1994 Scandinavian Cup for the winners of the Swedish, Norwegian & Finnish American Football Leagues of 1993. The Danish League was not represented.[1]

In the Semi-final, played on the saturday, The Oslo Fighting Trolls (Norway) led the Uppsala 86ers (Sweden) 17-14 at half-time, before running out 42-21 winners. The game was marred by penalties, with Oslo amassing 80 yards penalties and Uppsala 155. Two players and one trainer from the 86ers were ejected, and also one player from the Trolls.[1]

The final, played on Sunday, featured three-times winner Turku Trojans (Finland) against the Oslo Fighting Trolls. Oslo started the brightest scoring on their first possession, as Turku managed only two first downs (as well as two fumbles and one punt) on their first three possessions. The Trojans, however, went in 15-7 up at half-time, and never looked back, dominating the second-half, putting up 281 yards of offense (218 passing) and 13 first downs, as they went on to win 37-7. The Trolls were held to 51 yards of offense, with only two first downs and no points, by a commanding Turku defense.[1]
