The second annual Butterfield
Corporate Flag Football League kicked off on Friday night under the lights of
the T.E. McField Field.
The league is at full capacity with
an amazing 16 teams divided into four divisions.
Many believe that last year’s
champions, Hammerheads are destined to repeat but, week one’s highly
competitive games left no doubt that the championship will not be a foregone
In the first game of the night,
Hammerheads started off the season the way they finished it last year,
hammering Premier Valet 27-6. Hammerheads were led by upcoming QB Glenn Duran
Jr and veteran Selkirk Watler.
Duran completed passes to a number
of receivers, three of which resulted in touchdowns.
Bobeth O’Garro also chipped in with
a TD pass and a couple of nice plays on defense. For Premier Valet, up and
coming quarterback Dionne Whittaker led the charge.
The team of newcomers who played
without playmaker Jamal Solomon, struggled with drops and getting separation
from the Hammerhead players all night.
Premier Valet have a bye this week
and will more than likely use the week off to gather their thoughts and plays
for their next game while Hammerheads await their next opponent.
The H2Only Barracudas took care of
the Burger King Whoppers 29-6 in the second game of the night. Kevin Solomon
led the charge for H2Only completing 4 Td passes, 2 to Perry ‘BoyWonder’ Levy
and one each to Rachelle Peterson and Isatou Sey.
For Burger King, they showed
flashes of being the aggressive vertical passing offense of years passed with
legend QB Gary ‘Peanut’ Rutty but errant passes, drops and a timely interception
by H2Only’s Will Peguero sealed their fate.
Alicia Dixon scored the sole TD for
Burger King. H2Only take on Butterfield this week whilst Burger King look to
rebound against Cayman Auto.
The third game featured a high energy
back and forth nail biter between Butterfield and Cayman Auto of which the
outcome was not determined until the final minute.
Cayman Auto were led by the steady
arms of family duo Jessica Pawlik and Robbie Cribb. They managed to lead the
team on a number of solid drives that resulted in TDs but unfortunately the
speedy Butterfield were able to make the crucial plays down the stretch to come
out on top 20-19.
Offensively Butterfield were led by
David Meyerhoff who caught a number of TD passes and defensively it was Heather
Roffey who frustrated Cayman Auto’s QBs into a number of sacks and interceptions.
In the final game, The Dog House
Bulldogs slipped by the Ogier Armada 22-19 in a heated battle.
The Bulldogs were led by the
familiar face of Todd Hazlewood and newbie Chris Smith who showed his ability
to be a dual threat throwing two touchdown passes and running for another.
Dave Velez was Smith’s favourite
target all night being the recipient of both his TD passes. For Ogier, it was a
bitter lost as they claim questionable officiating had an impact on the result.
That said, with the biggest
offseason acquisition in Andrew Graham and the playmaking ability of Brad
Conolly, Ogier will surely have an opportunity to redeem themselves come
Graham completed three TD passes,
two to Kamilla Nagy who was a force all night and the other to Jeff Wight.
Ogier look to bounce back against
JET Nightclub whilst Dog House will face NCB Homes.
Other game scores of the night: NCB
Homes defeated JET Nightclub 34-12. Big Daddy’s crushed Fidelity 48-0. Bye Week: Titans, Hurricanes, Maples,
Congrats to the Pizza Hut Players
of the Week who were Neil Clements of Big Daddy’s and Kamilla Nagy of Ogier.
