Defensive back chips in for Galaxy

Packers defensive back Jeremy Unertl and punter Tim Morgan each played roles in the Frankfurt Galaxy's World Bowl victory over the Rhein Fire on Saturday in Glasgow, Scotland.<p>

Unertl started at right cornerback and finished with six tackles in the Galaxy's 35-16 victory. The former Wisconsin-LaCrosse standout will be trying to make the Packers roster for the second straight season. He was released by Green Bay late in training camp last year, then re-signed with the team this off-season. Like last year, he likely will be used strictly at safety with the Packers and challenge Jacoby Shepherd and Bobby Jackson for a roster spot.

Morgan will be challenging Josh Bidwell for the Packers' punting job. Morgan had one kick for 38 yards in World Bowl XI.

Jonas Lewis ran for a World Bowl record 126 yards and added a touchdown as the Galaxy (7-4) won the championship for a record third time. Frankfurt took a 25-9 lead and never looked back. The Fire (6-5) lost in the title game for the second straight season.
