Burger King Co-ed Flag a Major Hit!!!
Feb 25, 2014, 9:29 am

The booming Burger King Coed Flag Football League kicked off this past weekend at the Ed Bush Sports Center in West Bay.The league, put on by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, has a remarkable 20 teams registered this year with more than 300 participants. Familiar squads such as the reigning A and B division champions Burger Shack and Wok-N-Roll have returned, in addition to a number of expansion teams such as Walkers, Impressions Beauty Salon and WakeBoard Cayman. 

 

In the opener, Mourant Ozannes made an early statement dominating Burger King with a balanced attack spearheaded by quarterback Brad Conolly. He connected with Celester “7Eleven” Anderson for touchdowns twice and got some help on the ground from RaShawn Wright and Angel Hawkins, who each ran in a TD. For Burger King, it was a rough outing in every phase of the game – which led to them being blanketed statistically. The absence of Gary Rutty was quite apparent as the team simply didn’t have a pulse. Sean Moyle and Josh Whittaker tried to fill the void in his absence, but their efforts were without avail. The final score was a surprising 26-0.  

 

On the opposite field, Impressions Beauty Salon knocked off the Cronies 18-14 in what many considered the game of the night. Men’s Premier League Most Valuable Player Chris Lucas led the charge for Impressions with two TDs through the air and one on defense off an interception. Paul Chin and Gillian Roffey were the key targets, being the recipients of his TD passes. For the Cronies, it was a promising performance by the Oliver Parker-led crew despite the loss.

 

Former women’s league MVP Jordana Clarke returned on the scene after a three-year hiatus to bolster their roster. She tossed a TD to Jen Cortarelo but showed signs of rust, turning the ball over twice. Versatile playmaker Cueme Parker broke off a nice TD run to keep things interesting, but the turnovers proved too much for them to overcome.

 

In the second round of games, Cayman Auto Diagnostic shut out the upstart Ospreys 20-0, and Pizza Hut knocked off CrossFit7Mile 20-12. For Cayman Auto, the youthful Robbie Cribb Sr. and the Rivers brothers – Simon and Joel – were the focal points from start to finish. Cribb threw two TD passes and his son Robbie Cribb Jr. had an INT on defense. Simon and Joel finished up with three TDs combined and Erin Marshall caught a couple extra points to round out their scoring.

 

For the Ospreys, it was a callous welcome to the league as they were held out of the endzone. With that said, it was a good opportunity for Ernesto Ebanks and company to grasp the nuances of the game which should benefit them in week two.

 

Meanwhile, across the field, the nimble legs and unorthodox arm of Baron Solomon was on full display for Pizza Hut. He ran in two TDs and threw one to Ryan Ebanks to pull off the win. For CrossFit7Mile, offensive standouts Jamie Stephens and Jon Pump kept the game close, reaching pay dirt twice. Unfortunately, their inability to contain Solomon on defense cost them the game.

 

In other action, Burger Shack outlasted a determined Go Flag Yourself! team to notch a sloppy win 20-14. QB Kevin Solomon directed Burger Shack’s attack, throwing two TD passes to Perry Levy. Barrett Edri returned an INT for a TD to round out the scoring for Burger Shack.

 

For Go Flag Yourself!, Mike Carey and Bobeth O’Garro alternated QB duties and both had solid outings. They completed TD passes to Krystle Barrett and Catherine Ebanks, who found the soft spots in Burger Shack’s defense all night. Go Flag Yourself! had a shot at the end, but a key third down conversion by Burger Shack’s Will Peguero Jr. dwindled the game clock, leaving no time for a comeback.

 

Later on, Maples shellacked Walkers 33-0, while Kirk Freeport stunned KPMG 6-0. For Maples, the lethal combination of Fabio Gall and Rupert Whittaker was the difference throughout. They connected for multiple TDs and XTRA points and were simply too much for Walkers to handle. Defensively, Sonny Powell and Kareem James played the passing lanes well, snatching multiple INTs and returning one for a TD. For the inexperienced Walkers, QB Jermaine Ebanks and his receivers were unable to get on the same page all night.

 

Their lone bright spot was Ellen Downey, who caught a number of contested passes. Overall, they showed great speed and athleticism but need to hone their skills and create an identity on both sides of the ball. Meanwhile, Kirk Freeport squeezed out a narrow win against the perceived preseason B division favorites, KPMG.

 

In what were gawky performances by both teams, it was obvious from the outset that the game would come down to one play. That key play was made by Kirk Freeport, courtesy of David Makin’s TD connection with Paul Reichard, with seconds remaining on the clock.

 

KPMG appeared to be missing some key personnel at crucial positions, which contributed to their struggles offensively. Unfortunately, they’ll have little time to harp on their failure as they face Mourant Ozannes next.

 

In the night capper, Andro Elevator welcomed Wok-N-Roll to the A division with a forceful win, 20-6. Brendon and Lisa Malice led the charge for Andro, coordinating three scoring drives and putting on a tackling clinic on defense. The recipients of their TDs were Jamuel Dell, Alicia Dixon and Chris Allen.

 

For Wok-N-Roll, rust was apparent as offensively they were sluggish and defensively they couldn’t get off the field. Phil Brown and Shinette Rhoden were their only standouts, accounting for a number of receptions and their lone score. It’s fair to assume that Adrean Russell will use their upcoming bye week to make some adjustments and have his squad ready to bounce back against Los Terroristas in week three. 

 

Fabio Gall of Maples and Catherine Ebanks of Go Flag Yourself were the men’s and women’s players of the week.

Jan 30, 2014, 9:31 am

 TeamCaymanMen

 The Cayman Islands national men’s team finished tied for fifth in the “9-Man Ineligible B-Flag” division at the 43rd annual U.S. Flag and Touch League National Flag Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida last month. The squad was put together by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, which said in a statement that it was pleased with the performance. 

The statement reads, “Led by coaches Ike Bush and Rohan Marshall, the national men reached the quarterfinals of the 9-man bracket in what was an encouraging performance overall.” 

Cayman was one of many teams competing at the Austin Tindall Sports Complex, with squads from American states like Maryland, Alabama and Missouri. The Nomads from Trenton, New Jersey were the group winners while Bahamian team the Bahamas Flag Football League Predators – hailing from Nassau – were ninth. 

Among those representing Cayman were Damian Barboram, Matt Bone, Chris Bennett, Nikolai Hill, Perry Levy, Chris Lucas, Brendon Malice, Paul McField Jr., Oliver Parker, Josh Parsons, Will Peguero Jr, Adrian Rowe, Jermaine Sharpe, Baron Solomon, Tito Solomon, David Taylor, Rhod Taylor and Peter Whittaker.

There was also a women’s team that competed in the ‘Women 8-Man Eligible Flag’ division. Cayman finished tied for 17th out of 20 teams with squads hailing from Florida, Georgia and Ohio. The winning team was the Black Mambas from Washington, D.C. Among those representing Cayman were Cassandra Bodden, Scimone Campbell, Maggie Ebanks, Alexandria Saintvil, Camille Solomon, Treveen Stewart and Joni Wood. 

In all, there were 337 teams divided into 28 categories ranging from the nine-a-side format to four-on-four competitions and featured various age groups from 35 and over masters to youth aged 7-8.  

Up next on the local calendar is the Burger King Coed League, tentatively set to start Feb. 21, and The Security Centre Ltd. 2014 Youth Flag Football League, which held registration last Saturday.

Burger King feeds hunger for flag!!
Jan 13, 2014, 9:00 am

Local residents should be hitting the gridiron en masse next month.

The Burger King Coed League, put on by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, is slated to launch on Feb. 14. There are plans to divide play into two groups. There is a registration fee of $500, which includes 15 shirts.

Association vice president Perry Levy said there will be different levels of play on display.

“I am happy to report that it is our intention – based on feedback from the majority of team reps – to host more games this year,” Levy said. “This will likely result in teams playing more than once a week in some cases, bye weeks are probable, but more details will follow once confirmed. We will again split the league into two divisions, A and B. As before, the A division will consist of more experienced players and the B division, although just as competitive and fun, will be more casual giving newer teams an opportunity to have some success.

“Also we just wanted to take the opportunity to thank all members who helped make last year’s league a successful one. We would also like to recognized last year’s champions: Burger Shack (A division) and Wok-n-Roll (B division).”

Last season, Burger Shack – formerly Child Please! – won their third A division title in four years at the Ed Bush Sports Center in West Bay. Led by Levy, the team was bolstered by familiar names such as Kevin Solomon, Cassandra Bodden and Malaqui Awe. Wok-n-Roll topped the B ranks with Antoinette Lewis, Jason Wong, Phil Brown and Alexandra Saintvil. Among the standout individual performers were Brendon Malice, Brad Conolly and Jerry Beck.

News of the coed league comes as Cayman prepares to send national teams to the 43rd annual U.S. Flag and Touch League National Flag Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Games will take place on Jan. 17-19 at the Austin Tindall Sports Complex.  

The competition is nothing new as Cayman has participated for years. In 2012, the ladies placed fifth out of seven teams in the seven-man screen format, while the eight-man eligible unit finished ninth out of 18 squads. The men were ninth out of 12 teams in the nine-man ineligible category.

For this year’s event, the association has been organizing practices and tryouts at various sporting venues since last October. The men’s team will feature talents like Baron Solomon and Adrian Rowe. The ladies will have players such as Joni Wood and Tamika Byrd.

Most of the players took part in the association’s annual adult competition, the 2013 Digicel Summer League. The Burger King Panthers and Androgroup Killa-Panthers emerged the national champions. Burger King, led by star quarterback and league Most Valuable Player Chris Lucas, claimed its first men’s title in franchise history by defeating the Lone Star Mustangs. Androgroup, featuring Finals MVP Shamar Ennis, nabbed the women’s crown for the first time by beating the Lynx.

The Kissimmee tournament comes after the association staged its fifth annual beach competition. Dubbed the Beach Bash this year, The Parkers team of Oliver, Cueme and Christsania Parker along with Clay Coleman, Jennifer Cotarelo and Keisha Solomon emerged the winner.


Cayman flags Kissimmee kudos!!
Jan 13, 2014, 8:59 am

Local flag football has its focus on glory overseas.

The Cayman Islands Flag Football Association is sending national teams to the 43rd annual U.S. Flag and Touch League National Flag Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Games will take place on Jan. 17-19 at the Austin Tindall Sports Complex.

Association president Maggie Ebanks said the goal of the trip is to promote Cayman’s involvement in 
the sport.

“We have a group of about 60 people, with 30 for each team,” Ebanks said. “The men are doing the nine-man format – which is our home format – and the women are doing the eight-man format. The ladies don’t do that format as yet and the board wants to do that this season. It’s more contact and more physical than the current seven-man style.

“We’re trying to push the sport of flag football, build it and push it internationally to as many people 
as possible.”

The competition is nothing new as Cayman has participated for years. In 2012, the ladies placed fifth out of seven teams in the seven-man screen format, while the eight-man eligible unit finished ninth out of 18 squads. The men were ninth out of 12 teams in the nine-man ineligible category.

For this year’s event, the association – which is going into its 11th year – has been organizing practices and tryouts at various sporting venues since last October. Ebanks said the result is that the Cayman teams have ample amounts of talent.

“For the men, Perry Levy, Phil Brown and Will Peguero Jr. are among the usual guys in the squad,” Ebanks said. “Guys like Adrian Rowe, Theo Edman, Brian O’Reilly and Avery Ebanks are also playing. We have a good mix of players that have been before and those that are new.

“The women have about 24 players and at least 10 have never gone before so it’s a good mix of players as well. We had 10 women’s teams in the summer league last year and that many women playing the sport leads me to feel that we should focus on doing more with the women. For next year, there’s a chance to send two women’s teams.”

Most of the players took part in the association’s annual adult competition, the 2013 Digicel Summer League. The Burger King Panthers and Androgroup Killa-Panthers emerged the national champions. Burger King, led by star quarterback and league Most Valuable Player Chris Lucas, claimed its first men’s title in franchise history by defeating the Lone Star Mustangs. Androgroup, featuring Finals MVP Shamar Ennis, nabbed the women’s crown for the first time by beating the Lynx.

News of the Kissimmee tournament comes after the association staged its fifth annual beach competition. Dubbed the Beach Bash this year, The Parkers team of Oliver, Cueme and Christsania Parker along with Clay Coleman, Jennifer Cotarelo and Keisha Solomon. The tournament mostly featured dozens of established players such as Baron Solomon, Ryan Smith, Cassandra Bodden and Lisa Malice.

After the Florida tournament, focus is expected to shift to the annual coed league in early February, the youth league in mid-February and the summer league in June. There is also talk of staging another Cayman Classic tournament in March.
