Women’s flag football is officially at its mid-point.
This weekend marks week eight of the 16-week Dart Women’s League, put on by the Grand Cayman Flag Football Association. All eight teams have a bye this Saturday, 21 July and will rest up before storming the Camana Bay Sports Field next Saturday, 28 July.
The top teams thus far have been the Burger King Wolverines and the Androgroup Killa-Panthers. Both went part of the first half unbeaten and have excelled on either side of the ball. Burger King sport arguably the league’s top quarterback in Antoinette Lewis while Androgroup have one of the most improved players in hurler Christina Hefner.
Within striking distance are 2011 champions the Hammerheads Lady Sharks. Though the team has undergone major offseason changes, the veteran core of Hong Nguyen, Lilia Conolly and Scimone Campbell have kept the Lady Sharks on winning ways.
From there, the Zulu Warriors, Lone Star Jager Monsters and HOT 104.1 Cheetahs are jostling for playoff seedings. Zulu may be new in name and appearance but veteran stars Dionne Whittaker, Maggie Ebanks and Jessica Pawlik have been solid. Lone Star look to be on the verge of erasing a miserable start behind the likes of Renee Thompson and the Cheetahs are newcomers making headway behind emerging talents like Jennifer Cotarelo.
At the bottom are rookies the Maples Bliss and the Subway Stingers. Maples have talent, such as Eleanor Berry, but have struggled to execute while Subway are working out the kinks behind star Latoya Cover.
