The Goldfield West Bay Hellcats famously won the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association championship for the fourth time in seven years and one exceptionally pleased person watching from the sidelines was Jamal Young.
He is a former Hellcats player, their major sponsor and the Hellcats defensive coach.
Young is general manager of law firm Goldfield (Cayman) Corporate Services Limited and never doubted that his team would triumph against the always formidable Dog House Bulldogs.
Touchdowns from Perry ‘BoyWonder’ Levy and Phil Brown in overtime gave the Hellcats a 12-6 victory at the Ed Bush Stadium on Saturday. Jon Pump got Dog House’s TD.
‘This was a fantastic win for the Goldfield West Bay Hellcats,’ Young said. ‘This is the game that we were waiting for all season and fortunately we’ve come out with a victory. If you mess with the best, you lose like the rest!
‘I’m hoping that we’ll get the opportunity next season to go back to back. That’s one particular victory that has eluded us and that’s our goal next year. I can’t make any guarantees because we still have to play the game but don’t count us out.’
