Action on the gridiron continued
under the Friday night lights, as the Butterfield Co-ed flag football league
continued with more heated match ups:
In the first game at the T.E.
McField Annex, The Hurricanes breezed through against McAlpine 33-6.
Hurricanes captain Phillip Brown
dazzled the crowd early on with an electrifying 50 yard run and from there the
Hurricanes never looked back.
Darrell Porter was under centre
most of the night and threw for three touchdowns, two to Nathan Narcisse.
Cayman Islands Flag Football
Association President Jamal Young shook off the sideline cob webs, rubbed on
the Tiger balm, and managed to catch the other touchdown pass.
Though outplayed, McAlpine demonstrated
lots of heart and refused to bow under the pressure.
McAlpine’s quarterback James Ford
threw their only touchdown pass to Gordon McLaughlin, who also caught an
interception for the evening.
In the third night’s match, the
Titans bounced back from their week two loss against the Hurricanes by
defeating Maples 26-22.
Ogier’s continued their winning run
defeating the decidedly disorganised Premier Valet 20-33 in another exciting game.
In the battle of underdogs, Fidelity
throttled JET Nightclub 21-6 to claim their first win of the season.
Fidelity was led by the familiar
faces of the flag association’s youth league coordinators Kyle Broadhurst,
Chris Moser and Justin Miller.
Miller took all the snaps under
centre and orchestrated a brilliant attack. He threw for three TD passes and a
number of extra points.
For JET Nightclub, it was the same
old story as in previous weeks as they continued to struggle.
In the feature match, defending
champions Hammerheads beat Dog House 20-14. Hammerheads playmaker Glenn Duran
Jr. threw two touchdowns and ran for another.
It was however the defensive play
of Neville Morgan who was the difference maker in the game disrupting Dog
House’s offense by pressuring their QB Chris Smith with an effective rush.
Hong Nygen had a solid outing for
Hammerheads as well with one TD reception and a timely interception.
For Dog House, Chris Smith managed
to find veteran Phil O’Connor for two touchdowns but that was not enough to
make up their scoring deficit.
Tempers ran high at the end of the
game, leaving fans to eagerly await these sporting rivals potentially meeting
in the playoffs.
Other final scores for the night
Big Daddy’s defeated NCB Homes 41 –
Congrats to the Pizza Hut Players
of the Week: Taj Haye of Big Daddy’s and Kimberley Pitta of Premier Valet
