Hammerheads Lady Sharks took over
top spot in the Domino’s Pizza Ladies division of the Cayman Islands Flag
Football Association last Saturday by virtue of a 28-25 win over Walkers
Both teams have identical records
and have split the season series but Hammerheads go ahead by way of point
differential. Hammerheads and Walkers did not play their best football and the
game was closer as a result. Kathy Miller had two touchdown passes while
Alexandra ‘Nemo’ Terry rushed for a score as well as catching a touchdown toss.
Miller had five tackles for her defence. Bobeth O’Garro was 14 of 18 passing
for Hammerheads with three touchdown passes. Hong Nguyen led the defence with
six tackles while Scimone Campbell had three tackles and an interception.
Walkers who were still without two
of their top players hung tough the whole way. Cassandra Bodden and Isatou Sey
did most of the damage for the Wonders as Bodden was 19 of 27 passing with four
touchdown passes and an interception. Sey caught three of the touchdown passes
while Rachelle Peterson had the other. Sey had four tackles for her defence
while Sophy Broad chipped in with three tackles and an interception. Both teams
are 7 and 2 on the year and look to have the top two spots locked up.
Hammerheads play Lone Star next while Walkers takes on Chiro Spa .
In the most entertaining game of
the day Lone Star Jager Monsters played their best game in weeks in upending
Zulu’s Warriors 34-22. Lone Star were led by Ali Amos who went 20 if 25 passing
with five touchdown passes and no interceptions. Renee Thompson caught three of
the touchdown passes while Keisha Solomon had two. Solomon and Kristen
Sullivan-Grell led the defence with three tackles each.
For Zulu’s Dionne Whittaker led the
way again completing 12 of 15 passes with three touchdown passes. Whittaker has
been a pillar of strength for her team this year as the young squad is still
striving to find their game. Nadisha Walters, Saneta Smith and Latoya Cover all
had touchdown catches for the Warriors who fell to 3 and 6 on the year. Lone
Star improve to 4 and 5 and helped their playoff chances with the win. Lone
Star play Hammerheads next while Zulus takes on Ace Paints and Decor .
Chiro Spa Jaguars showed the league
they are going to be a part of the playoff scene with a 32-15 thrashing of
Appleby Avengerz. Jessica Pawlik led the way for Chiro with two touchdown
passes and a touchdown catch. She was 10 of 18 passing with an interception.
Shamar Ennis had a touchdown catch, ran for a score and threw a touchdown pass
while Lisa Juaneza caught the other scoring toss. Maggie Ebanks had a huge day
for her defence with three tackles and four interceptions. Anjuli Bradshaw
helped out with three tackles and two sacks. Juaneza had a great game a well
with six tackles and a sack.
Appleby uncharacteristically were
not mentally ready for this game. They made several errors that took them out
of the game early. Joni Wood and Antoniette Thompson split time at quarterback.
Wood was 4 of 5 passing while Thompson was 8 of 16 with three interceptions and
a touchdown pass. Carrie Bennett caught the touchdown pass while Zoenief Walker
rushed for the other score. Shinette Rhoden led the defence with three tackles
and two interceptions one of which she ran back for a score on a Chiro convert.
Appleby drop to 2 and 7 on the year and play Andro next while 5 and 4 Chiro
take on Walkers. The Andro game against Ace Paints was postponed.
