Wonders and Warriors meet for top seed

The big news coming into this weekend is that Walkers Wonders kept pace with the top-ranked Zulu’s Warriors. Walkers seemingly have the momentum after a hard fought 21-18 win over Ace Paints and Décor last Saturday in the lady’s division of the Cayman Islands Flag Football League.

Walkers, without star player Krishan Welcome, were once again led by the steady arm of Jordana Clarke who threw three touchdown passes and two extra points in the victory.

Isatou Sey caught two touchdown passes and Cassandra Bodden had the other as Walkers tuned up for this week’s game against the undefeated Zulu’s Warriors.

Bodden and Sophy Broad each had an interception for Walkers while Malaqui Awe chipped in with 5 tackles. On the other hand Ace was led by Lisa Malice who was 12 of 16 passing with three touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Betsy Smith, Lydia Jackman and Alicia Dixon all had touchdown catches for the 3-5 Panthers. Smith also picked off a pass on the defensive side of the ball. Ace Paints and Décor take on Hammerheads tomorrow in a key match-up.

Meanwhile Zulu’s stayed perfect at 8 and 0 as a result of their 30-8 drubbing of Maples Touchdown Divas. Ali Amos threw four touchdown passes in leading the Warriors. Amos finished the day 14 0f 17 passing and hooked up with Christine Bisnauth and Kate Marshall for the TD tosses (each had two).

Leslie Daley and Dionne Whittaker led the Zulu’s defense in securing the win. Tomorrow’s Zulu’s-Walkers match will see the winner likely locking down the regular season championship.

For Maples Loletta Hanna, one of the most athletic players in the league, led the way. She rushed for the lone score for Maples and helped out on the defensive side of the ball as well.

Judy Rivers had five receptions for Maples as well as recording an interception and two tackles on the defensive side. Maples are winless on the year and take on DMS next.

Andro Killa-Watts easily controlled DMS Dynamitez 21-6 in the final game of the day for the ladies. Christina McTaggart had three touchdown passes for Andro under centre. Kathryn Walsh, Sophie Dilbert and Suyen Coe all had touchdown receptions for Andro.

Andro improved to 2-6 on the year, are still in the playoff hunt and have a bye next week. The mercurial Dynamitez meanwhile came up flat on offense. Jessica Cribb was the leader for DMS going 8 of 12 with a touchdown pass and an interception.

Lisa Juaneza showed her versatility throwing four completions, catching a pass and recording an interception for the 3-5 Dynamitez. DMS will be looking to get back on the winning track next week as they take on Maples.
