BARCELONA DRAGONS (5-5) 38, RHEIN FIRE (7-3) 24 - The Fire managed to get the game's early sparks going as they had a 9-play, 46-yard drive that led to a 31-yard field goal by Manfred Burgsmüller.

Trailing 35-17 heading into the fourth quarter, the Fire had to get some points quick and fast.

The Dragons then capped off their World Bowl title with a 34-yard field goal by Jesus Angoy. Dragons QB Jon Kitna was given MVP honors, by going 23 of 31 for 401 yards with 2 touchdowns and only 1 interception in leading the franchise to their only World Bowl title.
