Calabash Soldiers made a statement
last Saturday with a 6-0 victory over Spin 94.9FM Hellcats in the Caybrew men’s
division action in the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association. Although the
score does not show it, Calabash dominated the game from start to finish. The
Soldiers had the ball deep in Spin territory all day and could only come up
with a single touchdown.
Peter Whittaker had an interception
that looked like a sure touchdown, but he dropped the ball on the way to the
end zone. Unforced errors kept Calabash from a really big offensive number.
Glenn ‘Duran’ Duran was eleven of 20 passing with a touchdown toss to Leslie
Harvey accounting for the only score of the game. Duran also had an
interception. Besides catching the touchdown pass Harvey also had an
interception for his defence while Whittaker had two. Will Peguero had five
tackles for the defence as well.
For Spin 94.9 FM it was a rough
afternoon offensively as they did not get into the Calabash side of the field
all day. Frecko Ebanks completed only 9 of 17 passes with an interception and
most of those were short to running back Oliver Parker who finished the day
with five receptions. The Spin defence played a strong game and were led by
Damian Barboram who had two tackles and two sacks. Clay Coleman chipped in with
three tackles. Both teams have equal 5-1 records at the halfway point of the
season with Spin taking possession of top spot with a better point
differential. Spin takes on Maples next while Calabash plays Burger King.
Doghouse Bulldogs returned to their
winning Ways in topping Maples Packers 21-12. Johnny Mack threw three touchdown
passes while going 13 of 18 passing as the Bulldogs evened their record at 3-3.
Joe Ferruzzi, Jason Moir and Scott Gossen all caught touchdown passes for
Doghouse. Gossen had six receptions on the day. For the defence. Justin Bodden
had five tackles and an interception while Chip Whitney recorded a sack.
For Maples it was another
frustrating outing as they played solid enough but cannot find the winning
formula this year. Kevin Solomon again led the way for Maples completing 8 of
20 passes with two touchdown passes. Rupert Whittaker and Andrew Frederick
caught the Maples scoring tosses. Veteran Rob Duty and David Nielsen each chipped
in with three tackles for the defence. Maples are now 2-4 on the year and take
on Spin 94.9 FM tomorrow while Doghouse take on winless PWC.
In the final game of the day Burger
King played just well enough to win in edging PWC 13-6.The play of the game was
an option play that offensive guru Brandon Malice called for his Burger King
offense. Burger King had tried to rush the ball three times from just inside
the PWC one yard line and on fourth and goal Burger King ran an option and had
running back Ryan Smith throwing to a wide open Simon Rivers in the end zone.
The whole PWC defence was looking for the run. Neil Clements was 10 of 18
passing with a touchdown pass for Burger King. Smith caught the other Burger
King scoring toss.
Jim Forde led the burger King
defence with two touchdowns and Paul Chin had three tackles as well.
For PWC the story is getting old as
the offense continues to struggle week in and week out. The Renegades have
scored only 25 point so far this year in six games. Dan Hiryok could only
complete four of 23 passes on the day with one touchdown pass and an
interception. Marcus Cumber caught the lone scoring pass. Barry Hunte had four
tackles and a sack for PWC’s defence while Jeffrey Stower chipped in with two
PWC are 0-6 on the year and play
Doghouse tomorrow while Burger King are even at 3-3 and take on Calabash. Time
will tell when the Renegades will get their first win.
The women were idle last week but
are slated to be back in action on Saturday.
