Maples Win in Gourzong’s Memory
Jul 8, 2016, 12:06 pm

The 2016 FLOW Cayman Islands Flag Football Premier League season kicked off its 2nd week of games and this week was a very emotional week for the flag football community.  When players received news of the tragic death of a very valued player Michael Gourzong, “Mikey”, the community was at lost for words as it came as a shock to everyone. On Saturday July 2, most players at the field showed their respects and love for “Mikey” by wearing his number on their jerseys, or ribbons and bands with his name and number on it. 

In the 2.30pm game the Kensington Hellcats faced off against Gourzong’s team, Maples. Prior to the start of the game there was a moment of silence for “Mikey”. Head referee Jermaine Sharpe, reminded players and spectators at the field that “Mikey” played for both teams during his time in the league. He was a professional young man that everyone loved and enjoyed watching him play.  From the start of the game Maples played with the determination to beat the Hellcats.  Not just for themselves, but in memory of their fallen player. The Hellcats are known for their competitiveness, but seemed to struggle offensively. The game would end in a bittersweet win for Maples with a score of 6-3. 

During the first game slot on Saturday, the IMS Killa B’zzz faced off against the Guinness Lady Sharks at 1:30pm. Lady Sharks headed by QB Bobeth O’Garro appeared as the stronger force offensively and defensively; however the Killa B’zzz were determined to not give up easily. Defense Captain Amaris Smith, kept her squads energy up and held the Lady Sharks to only one touchdown ran in by O’Garro. Courtisha Ebanks would add to the score with a converted extra point. Offensively, the B’zzz was unable to convert, and the game ended with 7-0 score in Guinness Lady Sharks favor. 

The second women’s game of the day was between the HSM Vipers and the Anytime Fitness Wolverines. Both teams started the game well, with determination to come through with the W. The Wolverines would be the first on the board, as Antoinette Thompson-Lewis would find Cassandra Bodden in the end-zone. Failing to convert the extra point, the first half would finish 6-0 in the Wolverines’ favor. However, the Vipers wouldn’t remain scoreless for long, as running back Shenel Gall would use her quick maneuvers and elusiveness to avoid being tackled and score twice. Shavelle McFarlane and Schmarrah McCarthy would add to each touchdown with a converted extra point. Despite the Wolverines toggling the QB duties between Antoinette Thompson-Lewis and Keisha Solomon, they were unable to get on the board in the 2nd half to keep their team in the game. The game would finish with HSM victorious, as it ended with a score of 14-6.

The day ended with the Island Heritage Predators taking on the Maples Knights. Predators offensively struggled as receivers dropped a number of balls near the end zones. Both teams would go back and forth, and it was evident early, that the decision of the game could come down to one play.  Defensively each team seemed to do as much as needed to keep the other team from gaining advantage, as half time would come and go without anyone gaining any form of major offensive traction. The game would in fact be determined very late in the second half, as Josh Whittaker would recovery a deflected touchdown pass from his QB and score the touchdown that sealed the game for the Knights, as they went on to win 6-2.

In addition to games on Saturday, CIFFA has adopted Monday Night Games into the schedule for its entire season. On Monday July 4th, spectators and players gathered at the Annex field to watch the Burger King Panthers vs. PWC and Maples Lynx vs. HSM Vipers.  The game between Burger King Panthers vs. PWC ended in a forfeit, and attention was quickly drawn to the ladies.  With starter QB Anya Edun not in attendance Maples Lynx utilized Erica Bosch as a backup. Bosch, new to the position, played well, however, struggled at times to move the ball offensively. Nonetheless, their defense seemed to pick up the slack and play strong during game regulation.  The Lynx managed to hold the current #1 seeded team, the HSM Vipers, as players such as Ashley Frederick made key defensive plays. The Vipers would pull away eventually and post points on the board. Shenel Gall scored the first touchdown with Shavelle McFarlane converting the extra point. Tanjana Campbell would follow suit and add points from an interception which she returned for a touchdown.  The Lynx were unable to score and the game would end 13-0 to the Vipers. 

This coming week the games are as follows; Saturday July 8, BK Panthers vs. Maples Knights at 1.30pm, HSM Vipers vs. IMS Killa B’zzz at 2.30pm, PWC vs. Maples at 3.30pm and Maples Lynx vs. Guinness Lady Sharks at 4.30pm. On Monday July 11, the games are Anytime Fitness Wolverines vs. Maples Lynx at 7pm and Kensington Hellcats vs. Island Heritage Predators at 8pm.
