Coed flag football is officially in playoff mode.
The Burger King Coed League, put on by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, starts its postseason on May 9 at the Ed Bush field in West Bay. Eight games are on tap as Wok-N-Roll face Pizza Hut while Computers R Us challenge Kirk Freeport at 7 p.m. before Duke’s battle Impressions Beauty Salon and Burger King contend with WestStar at 8 p.m.
Wok-N-Roll, behind Tito Solomon, finished third in the A Division at 6-2 while Pizza Hut, featuring Baron Solomon, were the sixth seed at 3-5. Computers R Us, with Ernesto Ebanks, were third in the B Division at 6-2 while Kirk Freeport, behind Jerry Beck, were sixth at 3-5. The fourth versus fifth seeds in each division featured four sides all 5-3 as Duke’s lean on Matt Bone while Impressions turn to Chris Lucas and Burger King depend on Gary Rutty while WestStar focus on Kevin Morales.
Both of the sixth seeds needed help to make the playoffs. Pizza Hut limped in after a 25-12 loss to Barrett Edri and reigning champions Burger Shack, who marched through the regular season a perfect 8-0. Kirk Freeport, meanwhile, had a dramatic 20-13 win over Wakeboard Cayman that saw Jill Nelson dominate on both sides of the ball to supplement the play of quarterback Chris Kirkconnell.
All of those squads will be competing for a spot in the semifinals and finals on May 16.
Brendon Malice and 7-1 Andro Elevator join Burger Shack as the top seeds in the A Division while Simon Rivers and 7-1 Cayman Auto Diagnostic Club and Brad Conolly and 7-1 Higgs and Johnson top the B Division.
