Hellcats hurt Bulldogs again

Spin 94.9 FM Hellcats improved to
3-0 on the year with a 12-0 shutout of Doghouse Bulldogs in the feature game of
the Caybrew Men’s Flag Football League last Saturday at Ed Bush Stadium in West

The game was a hard fought battle
that was scoreless until late in the fourth quarter when Phil Brown hauled in a
Frecko Ebanks pass for a 6-0 lead. Brown’s play earned him Player of the Week
honours in the men’s division. Doghouse had time and timeouts remaining to
drive for the tying score but Nate Narcisse picked off a Johnny Mack pass and
ran it back 40 yards for a touchdown to seal the deal for Spin.

Ebanks was 8 of 15 passing for Spin
. The Hellcats defence had a solid day shutting out the powerful Doghouse
offence. Narcisse led the way with four tackles and the pick while Taj Haye
chipped in with three tackles as well as an interception.

For Doghouse it was tough day on
the offensive side as Mack could only complete 7 of 14 passes with the two
interceptions. The Bulldogs moved the ball well when they ran but couldn’t find
the end zone. Joe Ferruzzi hauled in four receptions for Doghouse. The defence
kept Doghouse in the game and their defensive line led the way. Chip Whitney
had two tackles and two sacks for Doghouse while Kevin Zimmer contributed a
sack and two tackles. Next up for the 2 and 1 Doghouse team is Calabash
Soldiers in the game of the week. Spin 94.9 FM take on the Burger King

Calabash Soldiers cruised to a 13-0
whitewash of the PWC Renegades in the second game. Calabash just did what they
had to in securing the victory. Their defence completely dominated the PWC
offense in shutting them out. Calabash recorded seven QB sacks on the day and
PWC never crossed into the Calabash half of the field all day. Neville Morgan
and Jeremy Miller each had two sacks while Peter Whittaker ran back an
interception for a touchdown to help out the Calabash cause. QB Glenn Duran
completed 4 of 12 passes but rushed for a touchdown. Nigel Solomon had two
receptions for the offense for the 2 and 1 Calabash squad who take on Doghouse

For PWC it was another tough
outing. Justin Miller could only complete three of 12 passes while being sacked
seven times. He also threw two interceptions as the Renegades were completely
overrun by the more athletic Soldiers.

The lone bright spot for PWC was
Antonio Hanna who had a good game on both sides of the ball. He had two
tackles, two sacks and also caught two of the three receptions for his offense.
PWC fell to 0 and 3 on the year and the road doesn’t get easier as they play
Maples Packers Saturday.

Maples Packers finally found the
win column in the day’s final game as they edged the Burger King Panthers 6-0.
Maples seemed a bit more settled as they were struggling to find their form of
last year.

Kevin Solomon showed great
leadership in leading the way for Maples. He was only 5 of 10 passing with a
touchdown pass and an interception but kept the young Maples squad cool and
collected. Michael Wilson caught the lone scoring toss and Frankie Braithwaite
continued to lead the defence. Braithwaite finished with two tackles and a sack
for the 1 and 2 Maples squad.

Burger King were without spark plug
Ryan Smith, who is out with an ankle injury and they never were able to put
together any kind of sustained drive that would have allowed them to find the
end zone. QB Neil Clements seems to be still struggling to mesh with his new
teammates and completed just four of 11 passes with three interceptions.

The Panthers were able to keep
Maples in check defensively and were led by Tito Solomon and Paul Chin each
with three tackles. Burger King now 1 and 2 on the year have Spin FM next while
play PWC.
