Maples upset Island Heritage Predators to make playoffs
Sep 16, 2016, 2:09 am

The FLOW 2016 Cayman Islands Flag Football Premier League concluded its final week of regular season games, which means play offs beings next week. There was no other team who wanted to make the playoffs more than Maples. 

 

Maples have been coached by Shawn Pitterson from the formation of the team and most recently Rohan Marshall became a part of the coaching staff. Maples were once known as the “Rookie” team as the team mostly consisted of players who were new to the sport. Maples came from the team that was always beaten to become the team to beat. Team representative Jonathan Allen stated that if they made the play offs their goal is to do what they set out to do from the beginning of the season which is to “win the championship title for the first time”. Allen indicated that the team was faced with some hard games throughout the season because teams have stepped up their game to reach the same goal. He stated that the team has remained focus on winning the coveted title by staying determined to keep moving forward.

 

Very early in the season Maples tragically lost a player which was a “heartbreaking overall  experience  which impacted the team in a big way”. It was stated that the team has been coping with the tragedy and knows that “Mikey” is still with them at each game.  “We will continue to play in his honor and aim to make him proud” Allen stated.  Coach Pitterson informed that Michael was a great leader and motivator who made a great impact on the team and it is difficult not having him on the team.  Allen and Pitterson both agreed that the team does not just have one standout player.  It was stated that the team roster is filled with individuals who the coaches play to their strengths and abilities.  It was mentioned that the difference between this year and the previous years is the amount of talent on the team and that individuals have improved in their positions.

 

Petterson thanked their sponsor maples for their continued sponsorship over the years which have allowed the coaching staff to develop players in the sport of Flag Football.

Not only were the Predators effective offensively, however, they were also strong on defense. Baron Solomon led the way, kept the Predators motivated and made some interceptions. Jacob “Frecko” Ebanks, Hellcats QB, did his best to avoid the rush from Predators players including Michael Swaby.
