Soldiers overpower Panthers

Calabash Soldiers took over
possession of first place in the Caybrew Men’s Division of the Cayman Islands
Flag Football Association after comfortably seeing off the PWC Renegades.

Calabash did not bring their A game
but still managed to squash PWC 26-0. The Soldiers had eight dropped passes in
the game but still did enough to win.

Nigel ‘The World is a Stage’
Solomon led the way with two touchdown receptions. Solomon, who is one of the
most colourful characters in the league, had four receptions as well as a
tackle for his defence. Leslie Harvey and Sean Moyle caught the other two scoring
tosses. Glenn ‘Duran’ Duran had 10 of 21 passing with four touchdown passes and
an interception for Calabash while Will Peguero had four tackles and a sack for
the defence.

PWC finally found a little success
on offense when they inserted Antonio Hanna as QB. Hanna was only five of 12
passing with two interceptions but still managed to move the ball for PWC.
Hanna also had a tackle and sack for his defence while Marion Bispath recorded
a sack. PWC are 0 and 8 on the year and will rest this weekend as the men’s
division has a bye week. Calabash improve to 7 and 1 and are first by point

Spin FM 94.9 West Bay Hellcats and
Dog House Bulldogs always provide entertaining encounters and Saturday’s match
up was no exception. Clay Coleman made a great catch in the end zone for the
only points in a tough defensive battle. Frecko Ebanks was 7 of 14 passing for
Spin with the one touchdown pass. The defence stole the show, led by Chester
Hurlston who had three sacks and a couple of tackles for his defence. Coleman
also helped out on defence with an interception. Spin have the same 7 and 1
record as Calabash but fall out of first for the first time in over a year and
a half. They are off next week.

Dog House had a hard time moving
the ball but did have a Joe Ferruzzi touchdown called back for a flag guarding
penalty. Ferruzzi made a great run into the end zone but did push a defender’s
arm out of the way to elude tackle. Dog House was led by their defence and kept
the Bulldogs in it to the end. Chris ‘Baby Face’ Smith and Justin Bodden each
had two tackles for the Dog House defence while Chip Whitney had a sack. Dog
House are 4 and 4 on the year and sit all alone in third.

Maples Packers came up with their
best effort of the year in edging Burger King 18-12 in the most entertaining
game of the afternoon. Kevin Solomon led the way again for Maples going 11 of
20 passing with three touchdown tosses and an interception. Michael Wilson
caught two of the scoring tosses while Andrew Frederick had the other. Paul
McField led the defence with five tackles while David Neilsen had four.

Burger King hung tough all game but
went away from their running game and many observers felt this may have cost
them. Neil Clements was 14 of 27 passing with two touchdown passes for Burger
King. Baron Solomon and Ryan Smith each had touchdown catches for the 3 and 5
Panthers. Tito Solomon had a monster game on defence with six tackles. Ransford
Welcome chipped in with four and wily veteran Selkirk Watler helped out with an
interception. The men pay again in two weeks with Dog House taking on Calabash,
PWC playing Maples and Spin Hellcats and Burger King hooking up.
