Bulldogs maul Calabash

Calabash Soldiers stay at the top
of the standings in the Cay-Brew Men’s division of the local flag football
league was a short one. Their top-ranked stint ended when they made several
mental errors in a 21-18 loss to Dog House last weekend.

Calabash played well enough to win
but hurt themselves by committing two penalties on what would have been the winning
drive. Dog House played their consistent game and were led by Johnny Mack who
was 10 of 16 passing with two touchdown passes and a rushing touchdown. Phil
O’Connor and Dave Velez caught the scoring tosses. Chris Smith had four tackles
and a sack for the Dog House defence.

Calabash were led by QB Glenn Duran
who threw two touchdown passes and rushed for another but he took a costly
penalty on the final play of the game to cost his team the win. Duran finished
the game seven of 15 passing with three interceptions. Peter Whittaker and Andrew
Wisdom caught the scoring tosses. Calabash are 7-2 now and play Maples tomorrow
while Dog House improve to 5-4 and play Burger King.

Maples Packers gave their playoff
chances a boost with a 27-0 whitewash of PWC. Kevin Solomon led the way with
four touchdown passes while going 16 of 22 passing. Andrew Frederick and Michael
Wilson each had two touchdown catches. David Neilsen led the defence with three
tackles and an interception while Josh Merren chipped in with three tackles and
a sack.

PWC still have challenges on
offence as Antonio Hanna was the lone bright light going six of 20 passing with
two interceptions. Marcus Cumber had four receptions and Gabe Rabess led the
defence with a tackle and an interception. PWC drops to 0-9 on the year and the
road does not get easier as they take on the Spin FM Hellcats next. Maples
improve to 4-5 and play Calabash tomorrow.

Spin 94.9 Hellcats climbed back on
top of the standings by virtue of a tight 19-18 win over Burger King. Damian
Barboram was the star of the day as he picked off a errant Burger King pass and
ran it back thirty yards for the winning score. Frecko Ebanks only completed
three of 14 passes but two were for touchdowns as Nate Narcisse and Chester
Hurlston hauled in the scoring tosses. Taj Haye had a good game for the Hellcat
defence as he had three tackles and an interception. Spin improve to eight and
one on the year and figure to make it nine and one as they take on winless PWC

For Burger King it was another case
of “close but no cigar” as they played a tough ball-control offence but could
not get the win. Jon Carter led the way with a receiving touchdown as well as a
rushing score. Neil Clements was 14 of 24 passing with two touchdown tosses and
two interceptions. Brendon Malice had the other touchdown reception. Burger
King drop to three and six on the year and will need a couple of big wins to
make it to the playoffs. They take on a surging Dog House club tomorrow at the
Ed Bush play field in West
