There was more thrilling action in flag football in West Bay on Saturday.
DMS Hellcats were in the first game of the day at Ed Bush stadium against the Cox Colts. Kevin Solomon, QB for Cox, had some good attempts to move the ball, however, the Hellcats defence seemed to have the field covered. Reigning champions Hellcats’ offence was led by running back Phil Brown, who found the right holes to run though. Hellcats beat the Colts 24-0.
The second game was the KPMG Sharks against the Lone Star Mustangs. Led by QB Ryne Staback, the Sharks held the game tied at 6-6 right up until the last quarter. Interceptions, however, by the Mustangs defence allowed the Mustangs to gain back control, as they ran them back in for touchdowns.
Brad Connolly denied the Mustangs of their field goal by blocking the kick. The Mustangs won 24-6.
The Lynx seemed to have not yet gelled together, as they have now lost their second game of the season against Zulu’s Warriors who had a great game and won 10-0. Dionne Whittaker, QB for the Warriors, played superbly. Zulu’s came out with the intentions of winning and they did just that as they executed plays and balled out on defence.
Andro Killa Killa-Panthers made their comeback from a tight loss last weekend against the Scorpions. They won against the Lady Sharks, 12-6, on Saturday. Scimone Campbell was 9-of-18 with one touchdown, but they still were short of a touchdown to tie the game. Christina Heffener, QB for the Killa Panthers, made 10 completions from 25 attempts, and through managed to give her team the lead by throwing two touchdowns, which gave them the win.
Maples Thundercats gave the Lady Saints a warm time as the game was in their favour mostly as the offence did their job and executed plays. Lilia Connolly took over as QB, which was a better opportunity to move the ball.
Lady Saints, a team of rookies, played a good game, but were unable to stop Maples from gaining extra yards and winning. Melanie Bush, Cherrie Graham and Yasmin James stood out on the Saints defence as they all made interceptions and played a good defence. But that was not enough to stop the Thundercats from winning 12-0.
Star Athletic were stopped short against Ultra B’zzz, who made some great plays. Tonia Ebanks had a great game for Ultra B’zzz on both offence and defence with one tackle, two interceptions and a reception. B’zzz won 14-0.
The Maples Dolphins blew out the WestStar Saints, 28-0, on Saturday. Dolphins QB Edri Barnett made four touchdown passes.
BK Panthers ran through the CSPM Hurricanes coming out with a 10-6 win. Along with the touchdown and extra point, David Taylor, the field goal specialist, contributed to the Panthers victory as he kicked a field goal.
Hurricanes did score but did not manage to tie up the game. Glenn Duran was under pressure as Paul Chin managed to get through to the quarterback often.
Crossfit 7Mile managed to slightly poison the BK Wolverines with a 6-0 win. The Scorpions scored in the second half as they managed to move the ball a yard from the goal line. Keisha Solomon scored the touchdown. Jessica Pawlik was pressured most of this game, but that did not stop her from throwing the winning touchdown.
