Flag football: Uncle Clem’s undefeated

Week 5 of the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association’s 2017 Burger King coed season on March 24 at the Ed Bush Field featured match-ups of teams eager to help with their division seedings.

 

Uncle Clem’s faced Walkers going into the match undefeated at 3-0. Walkers started the game strong, a press release states, with Brad Connolly leading the team as quarterback. However, Walkers seemed unable to convert their big plays into points. Uncle Clem’s, on the other hand, found the open spots on the field and the occasional opportunity to throw the ball deep. Uncle Clem’s won 39-0. Walkers’ record is 2-2.

 

Last year’s reigning B-league champions Kirk Freeport faced the veteran Burger King team. Led by Garry “Peanut” Rutty, the Burger King players were determined not to back down. Kirk Freeport, however, scored one more touchdown over BK, winning 12-6.

 

This week, Kirk Freeport faces off against the NCB Islanders, who pulled off a close 12-8 win over Dart. It should be noted that Week 5’s players of the week are both from the NCB team, Michael Swaby and Nikki Ebanks. Both players were key aspects in their win over Dart.

 

Another big match-up was between Maples and Bogle Insurance. Both teams went into this game with a record of 2-1. Bogle, a new team this year, did not seemed fazed by the veteran squad of Maples. Bogle was able to find the chemistry among their players to stay in the game until the end. Maples won 18-7, but it was definitely a win that didn’t come easy for the team, according to a press release. Maples next faces Go Flag Yourself, who are coming off a 33-6 loss against Cayman National Bank in the previous Friday’s games.

 

The reigning 2016 A-League champions, Burger Shack, are back out this weekend, facing off against Cayman National Bank at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Ed Bush field.

 


Flag football: Team Burger Shack regains form
Mar 24, 2017, 8:58 am

Teams competed on March 17 in week four of the Cayman Islands coed flag football league at Ed Bush Stadium.

The first games of the night featured Burger Shack against Maples and Popeyes vs. Kirk Freeport.

After narrowly avoiding defeat two weeks in a row to Walkers and Bogle Insurance, Burger Shack put on an offensive show accompanied by defensive dominance. They cruised through the contest against Maples with some outstanding play by Terreh Ballard on offense and Shenell Gall on defense. Captain Perry Levy noted that he was happy to have his quarterback Kevin Solomon back in action,

“We were clicking on all cylinders, it was good to have K-Solo back. I love my QB,” said Levy. Burger Shack defeated Maples 34–6.

Popeyes vs. Kirk Freeport came down to the final play of the game, but Popeyes were able to hold off Kirk Freeport due in part to some impressive play by Jamal Dell and Shavelle McFarlane. Popeyes won, 26-20.

 

The second games of the night featured Cayman Auto against NCB Islanders and Walkers vs. Go Flag Yourself.

NCB Islanders and Cayman Auto fought a defensive battle that yielded few scores, but in the end NCB prevailed due to some key plays by Brett Eden and Victoria Powery. NCB won, 20– 6.

Walkers showcased some fancy plays as they confused Go Flag Yourself on a few scoring drives that left the defense trying to figure out what just happened. Go Flag Yourself seemed to catch on and settled in to offense in the second half, but it was too little too late as RaShaun Wright and Arleth Ebanks had already put the game out of reach. Walkers won, 30–6.

In the last games of the night, Burger King played Seafire and Bogle Insurance went up against Deloitte.

Seafire were short on manpower but they came out firing and exploded in the first half with a couple of scores to jump out to an early lead. But Gary Rutty and Betsy Smith righted the ship in the second half for Burger King and mounted a comeback to take the lead. In the end, Seafire fell just short of scoring on the final play of the game and Burger King escaped with the win by a score of 26– 20.

Deloitte was without their starting QB and it showed as their offense struggled to score. Bogle Insurance was doing well but had to overcome losing their starting QB to injury. After sputtering for a bit on offense, they got it together through some great plays by Rachel Van Beek and Rupert Whittaker to secure the win. Final score: Bogle Insurance, 19; Deloitte 6.

The Cayman Islands Flag Football Association acknowledged Arleth Ebanks and RaShaun Wright (of Walkers) for winning Female and Male Players of the week.

Island Heritage Predators, HSM Vipers win championship

The Island Heritage Predators celebrate their win.

The FLOW 2016 Cayman Islands Flag Football Premier League ended the season on Saturday at Ed Bush playfield, with HSM Vipers taking the women’s crown and Island Heritage Predators winning the men’s league.

The first game of the day was between HSM Vipers and Maples Lynx.

Both teams prevented the other from scoring for the majority of the game; however, HSM Vipers QB Lisa Malice found Stephanie Watler and Alicia Dixon in the end zone for touchdowns and Carly Dignam kicked for an extra point conversion putting HSM in the lead. Camille Solomon of Maples Lynx received a touchdown in the final seconds of the game.

The game ended with a score of 13-8 in HSM Vipers’ favor, making them the FLOW 2016 Cayman Islands Flag Football Women’s League Champions.

HSM Vipers was formed two years ago with experienced players such as Alicia Dixon, Dionne Whittaker, Glenita Logan and Sheyla Torres, and coached by Brendon Malice. Coach Malice described the team as family, saying that the players have their differences because of personality clashes but always figure out how to work together for the betterment of the team.

 

Since the formation of HSM Vipers, they have become the team to beat. However, they were outwitted in the semifinals last year. Coach Malice said that last year was a tough year for the team as they went from being undefeated in regular season to being knocked out of the semifinals after five overtimes.

“It was the toughest loss I’ve faced as a woman’s coach,” he said. He described this year’s final as a “revenge game,” which the players were determined to win from the very first snap of the ball.

Lisa Malice’s great pre-snap reads allowed her to find open receivers which allowed the offense to move the ball down the field.

Brendon Malice said the team dominated the league this year again because he used his players. The team acquired Maggie Ebanks, whom the coach described as “one of the best players in the league,” whose toughness and leadership helped the team develop a more two-dimensional offense.

He also used speed players like Shenel Gall and Jen Choice and powerhouses like Schmarrah McCarthy and Jo Ziegler.

Malice said that he has had the privilege of teaching the game that he loves to many great women, who have had success both internationally and locally. He said it feels “nice to retire with an international and national league championship title.” This is his third and final women’s league championship.

The HSM Vipers won the women's flag football league.The HSM Vipers won the women’s flag football league.

Island Heritage Predators vs. Kensington Hellcats

The last game of the day was crowd favorite Island Heritage Predators versus Kensington Hellcats.

On Saturday, the Predators were determined to take the title from the very first possession of the ball. QB Jordan Stubblefield threw his signature long ball down the field to receiver Cueme Parker on the second down of the play for a touchdown and Roy Forbes kicked for an extra point.

The Predators struggled to score more points because of strong Hellcats defense from players like William Peguero, who received multiple interceptions. On offense, the Hellcats were unable to score because of the Predators’ tight defense.

The game ended with a 7-0 score in Predators’ favor, making them the FLOW 2016 Cayman Islands Flag Football Men’s League Champions.

The Island Heritage Predators, coached by Clayton Lopez, was formed three years ago with a mixture of experienced and inexperienced players. They became a crowd favorite as they showed unity on and off the field.

The Predators have a mixture of speed and strength and Lopez made sure to use his personnel every time they stepped on the field. Jordan Stubblefield said it was challenging to get everyone to buy into Coach Lopez’s system and to not only depend on a few select players.

He said the Predators made a lot of changes coming into the season this year. The team chemistry was at its best, he said, and they practiced very hard and put in a lot of time reviewing plays, watching films and teaching the younger players how to play.

He said their win was “no fluke” as Lopez is a very organized and detailed coach and expects nothing but the best from his players. Stubblefield added that the team scored 231 points in 14 games, with only 52 points scored against them.

He said the team has gelled to become as close as a family. For example, during Saturday’s final, one of the players, Josh Parsons, got injured and was taken to hospital. Instead of the team going to celebrate their first championship win, they were in the waiting area of the hospital.

Stubblefield said, “They could have just as easily been out celebrating but instead they came to check on him; that is family.” He said it feels amazing to have finally won the championship after many years.

Awards day

Next up for flag football is an awards and family fun day, hosted by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association Adult and Youth Leagues at 2-5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 1 at the Field of Dreams.

Levy informed that new players to the team added fresh perspectives to the team approach like veterans William Pegeuro and Neville Morgan who was “instrumental in keeping the team energized with their commitment on and off the field.

Levy stated that because of continued success over the years the team can become complacent at times which contributed to the struggle this year. He commended the other teams for their continued improvement throughout the league.
