Lloyd ties NFL Europa record with 56-yard field goal

Apr 21, 2007 - 10:04 PM COLOGNE, Germany (Ticker) -- Rhys Lloyd tied an NFL Europa record with a 56-yard field goal and Shirdonya Mitchell returned an interception 80 yards for a touchdown to lead the Frankfurt Galaxy to an 18-13 victory over the Cologne Centurions.

The defending champion Galaxy (2-0) were coming off a 30-14 win over Amsterdam in a World Bowl rematch in their season opener.

Mitchell, who was allocated by the Miami Dolphins, got Frankfurt off to a fast start when he intercepted a pass by Quinton Porter and raced 80 yards for a touchdown 4:20 into the game.

Cologne (1-1) scored the next 10 points as Porter fired an eight-yard touchdown pass to tight end Bobby Blizzard with 4:35 left in the first quarter and Nick Novak kicked a 26-yard field goal with 5:44 remaining in the second quarter.

But Frankfurt took the lead with three seconds left in the first half when Lloyd, a British kicker, converted a four-point field goal tied the league record set by Danny Kight of the Rhein Fire against Barcelona on May 6, 2000.

J.T. O'Sullivan hit Felton Huggins with a 20-yard touchdown pass with 7:23 left in the third quarter to increase Frankfurt's lead to 18-10.

Lloyd missed a 47-yard field goal with 12:41 remaining in the fourth quarter.

Novak made a 35-yard field goal with 6:14 left.
