Cayman Auto and Jet Nightclub
kicked off Week 5 of the Butterfield Coed Flag Football league. Both teams had
lost all three games this season and desperately wanted to get off the snide.
It appeared that Cayman Auto
finally put a solid game plan together and executed it almost flawlessly
crushing JET 38-14.
With the quarterback tandem of
sister and brother pair Jessica Pawlik and Robbie Cribb leading the charge,
Cayman Auto put a series of balanced drives together using short intermediate
routes to open up big play opportunities down field.
This approach seemed to keep JET
off balance defensively and Cayman Auto in control. Statistically Cribb threw
for a career high four touchdown passes and Jessica chipped in with two TD
passes and two reception TDs as well.
Joshua Pawlik and Lisa Juaneza
rounded out the scoring for Cayman Auto with a number of TD receptions and
For JET Nightclub, Ethan Manderson
was once again under centre and led the team to two scores.
The game was out of reach early on
but as always Manderson kept his squad positive and upbeat and looking forward
to facing their next opponent.
In the second game, Burger King
defeated Ogier 21-20 in one of the more competitive and intense games of the
season. Ogier jumped out to an early 13-0 lead and appeared to have the game in
control but Burger King proved that football is totally unpredictable.
Scoring quickly on their first
possession of the second half and then forcing a game changing interception
turnover on defense later on, Burger King took the lead with a just over a
minute left in regulation. However, this was more than enough time for Ogier to
score possibly the game clinching touchdown.
Burger King who’s playoff chances
many believe were riding on the game had to dig deep defensively and they did
just that in dramatic fashion.
As anticipated, Ogier moved the
ball quickly down the field to within 10 yards of the end zone but that’s as
close as they would get to scoring as Burger King held on.
Gunslinger Gary Rutty threw three
touchdown passes, one each to Dillon Claassens, Sean Moyle and Betsy Smith to
round out the scoring for Burger King. Ogier was led by Justin Wight who put in
a solid effort of two TD passes and one rush TD but a crucial INT in the second
half maybe one that haunts him for the rest of the season.
Powerhouses Dog House and H2Only
squared off in the feature game of the week and lived up to its billing.
Coming off a disappointing effort
the week before, H2Only came out sharp and executed consistently taking a 14-0
lead early on. Their control of the game did not last much longer however as
Dog House made a strong second half push scoring quickly on a 50 yard TD
connection between Chris Smith and Dave Valez.
Shortly thereafter, Dog House got
the stop they needed forcing a turnover on downs frustrating the H2Only
Trailing at this point 22-14 with
three minutes left on the clock, Dog House needed only to score a TD and
convert a two point conversion to tie the game and force overtime.
They kept it interesting scoring
the TD, but were not so lucky on the two point conversion as summer league MVP
Kevin Solomon made a spectacular tackle at the one yard line to save the
victory for H2Only.
Perry ‘BoyWonder’ Levy was dynamic
for H2Only on both sides of the ball with 3TD receptions and two defensive
For Dog House Chris Smith continued
his impressive play passing three touchdown passes.
Dave Valez was the other standout
player with two TDs and a number of tough catches and defensive plays
throughout the game.
