Ed Bush field in West Bay witnessed an epic battle in the world of women’s flag football.
With two teams clashing that combined for just one loss, fireworks were bound to happen.
For the most part fans would not be disappointed as they witnessed a phenomenal game full of scores and tough play.
Walkers Wonders left no doubt in anyone’s minds that the championship in the ladies division of the CIFFA will not be a forgone conclusion.
Walkers dominated Zulu’s from the outset last week with a tried and true offense to move into a first place tie as a result of a 25-20 victory.
The Walkers game plan was perfect and exposed numerous holes in the Zulu’s defense.
As always Coach Perry ‘Boy Wonder’ Levy had his girls ready to play with a passionate pep talk and a barrage of schemes. Led by steady Jordana Clarke, the Wonders rolled to a 13-0 lead before Zulu’s realized what was happening.
Clark finished 8 of 10 passing with 2 TD passes. Rachelle Peterson caught both touchdown passes and Krishan Welcome and Cassandra Bodden each had rushing TD’s.
Zulu’s were led by Ali Amos who was nine of 18 passing with two touchdown passes. Zulu’s dropped several passes that killed promising drives.
Dionne Whittaker and Kate Marshal each had touchdown receptions for the Warriors. Both teams are now 8-1 and Walkers will have a chance to move into sole possession of first place tomorrow as Zulu’s has the bye week.
Hammerheads Lady Sharks fresh off a bye week hammered Ace Paints and Décor 26-6 in the second game of the day.
Ellen Downey had an almost perfect day at QB for Hammerheads as she completed all 10 passes she threw. She tossed two touchdown passes and an extra point. The only blemish was an interception.
Bobeth O’Garro also threw a TD pass for Hammerheads. Kathy Miller had two touchdown receptions and Scimone Campbell had one as Hammerheads improved their record to 5-3. O’Garro rounded out the scoring with a rushing touchdown.
For Ace Paints and Décor Lisa Malice was the workhorse going 19 of 25 passing with a lone touchdown toss to Jennifer Allen. Malice also threw two interceptions.
Allen caught seven passes as the Lady Panthers fell to a dismal 3-6 on the year. Hammerheads are set to play Andro tomorrow while Ace takes on Maples.
In the final game of the day DMS’s Jessica Cribb led her team to a 20-13 victory over Maples.
Cribb threw three touchdown passes and finished the afternoon 10 of 17. Renee Thompson had two touchdown receptions while Keisha Terry had the other. Terry also had an interception on the defensive side for DMS.
DMS improves to 4-5 on the year good enough for fourth place. For Maples, who are still winless, this season Loletta Hanna was the lone bright spot. She rushed for a score and caught a Lauri Webster pass for a touchdown in leading the Lady Divas.
Webster was 11 of 14 passing with an interception at the helm for Maples. Maples are 0-8 on the year and play Ace Paints and Décor tomorrow.
