Youth flag football is in its
competition stage now.
After weeks of training, skill
assessment and coaching the second annual Security Center Youth Flag Football
League sees competitive matches.
The first weekend of games,
featuring children in the 7-17 age range, took place last Saturday at the Camana
Bay Sports Field featuring three different age divisions.
Some 13 teams went into action
under the supervision of Cayman Islands Flag Football Association members (most
of whom are coaches and players in the adult flag football leagues).
By day’s end six squads stood out.
In the junior division the Burger King Gators won their first match over the
SRS Steelers with an impressive score-line of 39-7.
Walkers Wolverines also won its
first game, though by a much closer score of 14-12 over Maples Raiders.
The six team middle division (the
biggest in the league) saw a standout showing from the Security Centre Packers.
The squad played two games and won both, ending up with 55 points scored and
just six tallies allowed.
Dart Cayman Islands Dolphins were
the other winners as they took down the Broadhurst Buccaneers 13-0 behind
Lastly the Universal AC Ravens and
local flag football association Saints are 1-0 atop the senior division while
the Auto Spa Giants are 0-2.

action and the team of the week is the Security Centre Packers who played twice
and won both games. Both matches featured the Packers scoring quickly at the
start and then shutting down the opposing teams’ offence with their strong

quarterback Dylan Bostock and receiver Rashuan Wright.”
