 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!!

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.

Thompson puts Wolverines on top
Sep 6, 2013, 1:24 pm

The Burger King Wolverines ended their regular season campaign in thrilling fashion. 

Burger King would beat the Lynx, 6-0, last Saturday at the Ed Bush Sports Centre in West Bay. The contest was part of the 2013 Digicel Summer League, put on by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association. With the win, the Wolverines would grab the top overall seed in the Women’s Premier League. 

Jennifer Cotarelo stepped up as the Lynx quarterback for the second time. The Wolverines defense played a great game as they held the Lynx without a score, making four interceptions. Burger King came out on top with a touchdown made by Benieca Thompson within the first five minutes of the game. 

Another game with a huge impact on the playoffs was Zulu Warriors facing the CrossFit 7-Mile Scorpions. Zulu dominated CrossFit, 20-6, with a stellar showing by QB Dionne Whittaker. Renee Thompson had the game’s first touchdown for the Scorpions, but CrossFit could not score from there.  

The Lady Sharks gave Androgroup Killa-Panthers a warm time but lost 6-0. Although they played a great game, the Sharks could not stop Androgroup squeezing by as Killa-Panthers QB Christina Heffner had a starring role. 

The Ultra B’zzz ended their season with a 30-0 win against the Lady Saints. Marleena Smith led her team with a few touchdowns and interceptions against the Saints.  

The Lady Saints have improved their game and although they did not make the playoffs, next year they should be vastly more competitive. Maples Thundercats ended their season on a high note by beating Star Athletic Club, 6-0. It was a defensive battle throughout. 

In the Men’s Premier League, Maples Dolphins and Lone Star Mustangs battled it out, with the Dolphins winning 13-10. The dms West Bay Hellcats upset the Burger King Panthers, 6-0. The Hellcats played a tight and impressive defense, with West Bay stalwart Oliver Parker having the decisive score. 

KPMG Sharks completed their rookie run in the league with a 14-12 win over the Cox Colts. KPMG QB Ryne Staback was in top form for the Sharks.  

The result put both teams in the playoffs, with Cox making their second appearance in three years. For newcomers KPMG, the postseason berth is an impressive first. 

On the outside looking in for the playoffs would be the Cayman Power Sport and Marine Hurricanes and the WestStar Saints.  

The teams dueled it out in their season finale, with the Hurricanes dominating the Saints, 42-0. Donnie House had a solid performance in the pocket for the Hurricanes, while WestStar had moments of brilliance from Jon Whittaker. 

In all, six male and six female teams made the playoffs. The top two squads in each league, the Mustangs and Panthers for the men and the Wolverines and Lynx for the ladies, earned a first-round bye.  

The opening playoff matches are scheduled for this Saturday at Ed Bush. The match schedule sees the Scorpions facing the Lady Sharks at 1 p.m., the Dolphins tackling the Colts at 2 p.m., the Warriors battling the Killa-Panthers at 3:15 p.m. and the Hellcats challenging KPMG at 4:15 p.m.
