Mustangs trample over Predators!
Aug 19, 2014, 4:37 pm

Week 8 - Digicel Premier

Many eyes in the flag football world were trained on the Lone Star Mustangs and Island Heritage Predators.

 

The first time these teams matched up at the Ed Bush field in West Bay, it ended in a 19-12 Predator victory. The Mustangs chalked up that result to season-opening jitters and were determined to win their Digicel Premier Summer League Week Eight clash. On the first snap on the game, Rashad “Flash” Rankin ran the whole field for a touchdown. In spite of multiple receptions by Avery Ebanks and two TD catches by Chris Bennett, the Predators were well out of it. The Mustangs piled on the points with TD catches from Tyler Less and Jon Pump and two from Chris Spigner, which gave them a 31-12 win.

 

Island Heritage now have a bye, while Lone Star prepares to battle the dms West Bay Hellcats, who are coming off of a 39-0 thrashing of the Maples Dolphins.

 

The Dolphins, who are made up of mostly young players, could not move the ball as quarterback Chris LeBeau was unable to complete passes. The Hellcat defense enjoyed three sacks from Damian “Beast” Barboram, while the offense simply scored at will. Maples are still looking for their first win of the season and their road only gets tougher as they battle last year’s champions, the Burger King Panthers, who are coming off a 35-0 victory over the KPMG Sharks.

 

Panthers QB Chris Lucas completed nine out of 12 passes and threw four TD passes, with Glenn Duran Jr. and Ed Pallot-Rosa catching two apiece. KPMG were hurting with a number of players missing and as a result, the offense was plagued by the pressure of the Panthers’ defense. Andre Morgan, Andrew Frederick and Brendon Malice each had an interception for Burger King. Next up for KPMG is the Cox Colts, who are coming off of a bye.

 

On the women’s side, the Anytime Fitness Wolverines lost to the CrossFit 7Mile Scorpions, 6-0 in overtime, and the Domino’s Lynx beat the Caledonian Killa-B’zzz, 13-0. The Wolverines turned to Jahzenia Thomas as their QB and she completed just 13 of 34 passes, with two interceptions caught by Maggie Ebanks and Cassandra Bodden of the Scorpions. Jessica Pawlik completed 10 out of 19 passes for CrossFit, throwing one interception to Martina Bodden. In overtime, the Scorpions prevailed as Pawlik found Cassandra Bodden in the end zone.

 

CrossFit defended four Wolverine drives in the extra session, with Cassandra Bodden sealing the result with a pick. Next up for the Wolverines are the Zulu Warriors, while the Scorpions challenge last year’s champions, the Androgroup Killa-Panthers.

 

The Lynx looked to veteran Keisha Solomon as their QB and she completed 16 of 29 passes to receivers such as Christsania Parker – who had a TD catch – and Judy Rivers. While she did throw three picks, Solomon also ran for a TD of her own. Nabbing the interceptions for Caledonian were Marleena Smith and Tonia McLaughlin. Toggling between two QBs, Ellen Downey and Anna Nyaundi, the Killa B’zzz struggled to move the ball. The Killa-B’zzz now face the Lady Sharks, who want a feeding frenzy after beating the Zulu Warriors in final minutes of regulation. The Lynx challenge Star Athletic Club.

 

Setting off against last year’s champions, the ladies of Star Athletic knew they had their hands full. Nonetheless, they were determined, and Amanda Nelson led her team in defense. It was evident that Killa-Panthers QB Christina Hefner tried to throw the ball away from Nelson. Hefner ended up with only one pick on 11 of 17 passing. The result was an 18-0 Androgroup victory.

 

The Lady Sharks and the Warriors went back and forth game as neither QB threw an interception nor a TD. Zulu veteran QB Dionne Whittaker held her own, while Jessica Ebanks-Maxwell filled in as Sharks QB, with regulars Bobeth O’Garro and Scimone Campbell missing in action. Each team battled down to the wire, but the Sharks prevailed 6-0 as Serena Yates caught the decisive pass in the end zone. Sheyla Torres stood out on defense for the Warriors.

 

Week 9 of the Digicel Summer Premier League continues on Aug. 16 at the Ed Bush field from 11 a.m.

Panthers claw Hellcats to pieces!
Aug 8, 2014, 12:57 pm

The Digicel Premier League, put on by the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association, crossed its mid-season point in dramatic fashion.

 

Week 7 featured 14 teams in action at Ed Bush field in West Bay but the game of the day pitted 2013 men’s champions, the Burger King Panthers, against local dynasty, the dms West Bay Hellcats. Both teams went into the rumble 5-0 and it was fitting that thunder ushered in the contest. Panthers quarterback Chris Lucas continued his usual style of throwing and running the ball, as his offensive line executed key blocks to open gaps on the field. Hellcats QB Jacob “Frecko” Ebanks was his regular poised self, but two key throws were intercepted by Panthers safety Andrew Frederick.

 

Defense took center stage as two picks returned for touchdowns, by Jonathan Carter and Brendon Malice, would lead Burger King to a 16-0 victory. A David Taylor field goal rounded out the scoring. Hellcat star receiver Perry Levy said his team did not play to its potential.

 

“When teams are evenly matched, it usually comes down to the turnover battle to determine the outcome,” Levy said. “We turned the ball over, they didn’t.”

 

The Hellcats next face the Maples Dolphins, who are coming off a bye.

 

Any thoughts of the Island Heritage Predators walking over the KPMG Sharks were proved wrong. After scoring twice, the Sharks had 13 points on the board and a chance at glory. The Predators would learn Davelee Cole, nicknamed Bull, is a real animal as he caught both KPMG TDs in the end zone. Cole was also a dominant force on defense with an interception, along with Brad Conolly. Island Heritage, who feature talents such as Michael Swaby, eventually rallied back for a 14-13 win. Next up for KPMG is Burger King while Island Heritage challenge the Lone Star Mustangs, who are coming off of a win against the Cox Colts.

 

Two weeks ago, Cox rolled to a 32-0 win over Maples. Since then, the Colts have suffered two scoreless defeats and now sit out of playoff position behind the Mustangs. Cox had issues moving the ball under QB Richard Campbell while the defense limited them Lone Star to one TD. Mustangs QB Jamie Stephen would do just enough to secure a 7-0 victory. The Colts now have a bye.

 

On the women’s side, the defending champion Androgroup Killa Panthers breezed past the Lady Sharks, 26-0, to top the league standings. QB Christina Hefner found many players in the end zone for Androgroup as the Sharks fell apart on defense. Next up for the Sharks are the Zulu Warriors, who are riding high after beating the CrossFit 7Mile Scorpions.

 

Warriors QB Dionne Whittaker showed off her ability to throw and run the ball for key yards. On the other hand, Scorpions QB Jessica Pawlik made key throws to her team mates but was plagued with a number of dropped balls. Sheyla Torres of Zulu was the star on defense. CrossFit now prepare to tackle the Anytime Fitness Wolverines, who knocked the Domino’s Lynx down to second place in the standings with a 6-0 win. In spite of having key player Saneeta Smith back on island, the Lynx were unable to get on the board. The Wolverines, however, looked comfortable with new QB Jahzenia Thomas in charge. The Lynx now face the Caledonian Killa-B’zzz, who are coming off of a 6-0 loss against the Star Athletic Club.

 

The victory has members of Star Athletic, like head coach Lawrence Nelson, believing the squad can produce more success.

 

“I’m proud of the ladies,” Nelson said. “Star Athletic Club is made up of a number of new and young players who, each week, come out and fight hard on the field. We knew a win would come, we just didn’t know when. I’m glad the team gets to see their hard work pay off and hope that they continue to believe that it can happen again.”

 

It should be noted that Nelson and company had far from an easy victory. Killa-B’zzz players such as Amaris Pressley-Smith and Nikki Ebanks covered a lot of ground and disrupted many of their opponent’s potential scoring drives. In the end, it took Amanda Nelson using her swiftness and ability to maneuver around tackles to run back a 90-yard return for the game’s only score. Ellen Downey threw some key balls for the Killa-B’zzz, however her team was unable to get on the board.

 

Week 8 of the Digicel Premier League continues this Saturday, Aug. 9, at the Ed Bush field. Due to the local Confederation of North, Central America and Caribbean Association Football tournament on island, the games will start at noon this weekend. The flag football association is grateful for the consideration of the CONCACAF members in permitting the local flag football season to continue, while the international tournament is taking place.

Cayman National Ladies tackle Georgia!
Jul 23, 2014, 10:37 am

The Cayman Islands will face some of Georgia’s best clubs on the gridiron.

 

The Cayman Islands Flag Football Association is sending a women’s team to compete at the third annual Fallen Warriors Invitational in Atlanta. The JP Mosley Park, consisting of grass football fields with scoreboards, in Stockbridge will serve as the venue on July 18-20. The competition is being put on by the Atlanta Sports Connection and is recognized by the United States Flag and Touch Football League as a major national invitational tournament.

 

Captained by association president Maggie Ebanks, Cayman is competing in the eight-man competitive contact segment of the tournament. The competition format will see Cayman play three group games, starting on July 19, followed by double elimination playoffs. Local ladies traveled to Georgia this week and were expected to scrimmage a local side on July 18. Aside from Cayman, there are teams from across the United States taking part with states like Louisiana, Florida and Alabama being represented.

 

Cayman is hoping to build off its performance at the 43rd annual U.S. Flag and Touch League National Flag Football Championships in Kissimmee, Florida. Back in January, the national men’s team finished tied for fifth in the “9-Man Ineligible B-Flag” division while the ladies finished tied for 17th out of 20 teams in the “Women 8-Man Eligible Flag” segment

 


KPMG Sharks hungry for more prey!
Jul 17, 2014, 10:25 am

Week 4 - Premier League 2014The KPMG Sharks made a statement against the Maples Dolphins during Week 4 of the Digicel Premier League.

 

With both teams coming off of a loss, the game had an extra bit of flair as both teams were hungry for the win. The Sharks would enjoy a feeding frenzy as veteran quarterback Luigi Moxam completed eight out of 12 passes. Moxam did toss two interceptions, retrieved by Demetri Chambers and Kwei General of the Dolphins. General was the star, grabbing the lone touchdown on offense and producing five tackles on defense. In spite of those efforts, the Sharks managed to win, 19-7. This Saturday at 1 p.m., KPMG faces the Lone Star Mustangs, last year’s runner-up, and confidence is high within the Sharks camp.

 

Brad Conolly of the Sharks believes more victories are on the horizon.

 

“I’m looking forward to a great week of practice so that we can continue to work on the pieces we need to and carry forward the momentum to our next game,” Conolly said. “We’re a good team and if we play together and execute, we’re able to see that we can win games against anyone!”

 

On the ladies side, the Androgroup Killa-Panthers challenged the Zulu Warriors, who were quieted last week by the Caledonian Killa-B’zzz. Maybe it’s the “Killa” in the name, but the Killa-Panthers followed suit and kept the Warrior roar to a whisper. Androgroup QB Christina Hefner had 15 completions, star receiver Jen Cotarelo caught two receiving TDs and Zulu’s Sheyla Torres led the Warrior defense. Zulu veteran QB Dionne Whittaker had issues in the passing game but eventually found Jessica Ebanks in the end zone late in the second half. It was to no avail as Androgroup held on to a 12-6 victory.

 

The Dominoes Lynx faced off against the Lady Sharks, who have been looking good so far this season. Last week, the Lynx’s offense was a non-factor in their win over the CrossFit 7-Mile Scorpions, but they were determined to turn that around. QB Anya Edun completed  six of 10 passes but was sacked twice by Tiffany Ebanks of the Lady Sharks. While QB Bobeth O’Garro completed 12 passes for the Lady Sharks, she did give up interceptions. Christsania Parker would convert one of those picks into a Lynx touchdown and Dominoes would hold on for a 8-0 victory.

 

On the men’s side, the Burger King Panthers battled the Lone Star Mustangs in a rematch of last year’s championship game. QB Chris Lucas led the defending champion Panthers in a gritty display that saw Glenn Duran Jr. as the main focus on offense. Defensively, the Mustangs relied on leading tackler Rashad Rankin while Dillon Claassens, Greg Miller and Chip Whitney each recorded a sack. Tyler Lee would do his part and get the Mustangs on the board, with Jon Pump securing the extra point. Lucas responded by finding Duran Jr. twice in the end zone as the Panthers enjoyed a 17-7 victory.

 

The Anytime Fitness Wolverines battled the young Star Athletic Club ladies and saw Jahzenia Thomas step up to the QB position. Completing eight passes, Thomas would find Agueda Blake for a Wolverine TD and Anytime Fitness also got points on defense as Shinette Rhoden would run one of her two interceptions back for a TD. Star Athletic QB Tiffany Scott completed 10 passes but Anytime Fitness prevailed, 14-0.

 

In other action, the Caledonian Killa-B’zzz tackled a CrossFit team off to a rough start to this season but confident in a turnaround. Caledonian was led by QB Anna Nyaundi, who marched the offense up and down the field. Marleena Smith, who seemed to be Nyaundi’s favorite receiver, caught a pass and avoided tackles in stunning fashion for a TD. The Scorpions actually were better on defense as their offense cost them another TD, as an interception would be run back for a score. Defensively, the B’zzz leaned on Kathy Miller and Timisha Edwards for a 13-0 victory.

 

An interesting contest on the men’s side pitted the Island Heritage Predators against the Cox Colts. Both teams brought a great deal of energy to the game. Veteran QB Kevin Solomon stepped into the driver’s seat for the Colts and completed seven passes. Defensively, the Predators featured Peter Whittaker, Will Peguero Jr. and Smarnell Thomas each making a number of tackles. Thomas also recorded an interception. Solomon broke through and found Terry Ballard to get Cox on the board.

 

Island Heritage responded behind QBs Barrett Edri and Jordan Stubblefield, who managed to find players in open spots around the field. Jordan Cacho ran in a TD, while Chris Bennett recorded a receiving TD. The Predators defense would tighten, holding Cox to one TD en route to a 12-6 win. Next up for the Predators is a dms West Bay Hellcats team coming off of a bye week.

 

Week five of the Digicel Premier League continues on July 19 at Ed Bush from 1 p.m. with only men’s games. The women’s teams are on a league-wide bye week as the national women’s flag football team travels to Atlanta for a tournament.

week 3

Week 3 of the Digicel Premier League saw exciting games at the Ed Bush field, with none more fascinating than the showdown between the Island Heritage Predators and the Maples Dolphins.

 

Being the new team in the league, the Predators have generated a certain amount of buzz with a number of people interested in their progress. Island Heritage wasted no time in starting their feeding frenzy behind quarterbacks Jordan Stubblefield and Barrett Edri. Five touchdowns would be caught with extra points and a touchdown obtained from an interception running up the score with the result being a decisive 44-0 victory.

 

Maples, who started Fabio Gall in the QB spot, seemed to have a hard time generating a drive on offense and ended up handing over the controls to Kwei General. Despite his strength behind the ball, the Dolphins struggled. Next up for Maples is the KPMG Sharks, with both teams looking for their first win of the season.

 

The talk on the women’s side was the Caledonian Killa B’zzz managing to silence the Zulu Warriors with a 0-0 draw after overtime. The Warriors, who have seemed solid in their last two games, were definitely the favorites but QB Dionne Whittaker and the offense would struggle in the face of the Killa B’zzz rushers with B’zzz players such as Amaris Smith and Jamie Rodgers being the standouts. On defense, the Warriors seemed to keep the B’zzz within range as Tanjana Campbell and Sheyla Torres would lead the squad. The B’zzz now tackle the CrossFit 7-Mile Scorpions, who are hungry for their first win.

 

Ties are a popular result in the women’s game as the Anytime Fitness Wolverines had a 12-12 stalemate with the Androgroup Killa-Panthers. Led by different QBs the last two weeks, the Wolverine offense would turn to Jahzenia Thomas – who completed 10 out of 13 passes. Thomas seemed comfortable in the QB role, with her quickness keeping the defense on its toes and mindful of her ability to run the ball. The game would go right down to the last minute as Killa-Panthers Becky Lucas and Jennifer Cotarelo would each catch a TD. Many Androgroup fans thought that they had the game in the bag, being up 12-0 until very late in the second half. The Wolverines would fight back to level the score within the final moments, with overtime producing no further points.

 

CrossFit would fall short against the Dominos Lynx, 2-0. While the Scorpions were led by the return of their main QB Jessica Pawlik, the Lynx were coming off of a win behind Anya Edun and were hungry to continue their form. Defensively, the Scorpions – who struggled the first two weeks of the season – looked much improved.

 

In spite of the loss, the Scorpions coaching staff was positive, saying: “Coming off of losing the way we did during Week 1 and 2, we think our defense is now coming together. They scored not from a touchdown thrown or ran in, but off of a safety. If we keep playing the way we know how and practicing, we don’t doubt that we’ll do well.” Next up for the Lynx are the Lady Sharks.

 

On the men’s side, the Burger King Panthers would crush the Cox Colts, 25-0. Led by QB Chris Lucas, the Panthers seemed extremely comfortable controlling the game while the Colts could not get positive momentum on either side of the ball. Defensively, Burger King leaned on Anthony Chin – who recorded a sack, interception and a safety.

 

Some were disappointed in the performance of Cox, considering the number of new recruits the team acquired in the offseason. Nonetheless, the season is still new and the Cox know what they have to work on. Next up for the Colts are the Predators.

 

The Lady Sharks faced off against the ladies of Star Athletic Club and enjoyed a 22-0 thrashing. Led by QB Bobeth O’Garro’s 12 out of 21 completions, the Sharks dominated on offense. To Star Athletic’s credit, they never gave up. Led by Alexia Williams, the Star ladies fought hard to gain yards on offense. However, the Sharks defense seemed to be in the right places at the right time – led by Keisha Anglin’s five tackles. This Saturday the Sharks face the Lynx.

 

Rounding out the action, the dms West Bay Hellcats squeezed past the KPMG Sharks, 6-0. The game did not exactly follow the expected script because while many people expected a Hellcats win, most did not foresee only one TD. Led by Jacob ‘Frecko’ Ebanks, the Hellcats seemed to have a harder time on offense – with pressure from the KPMG defensive line leading to two interceptions from Justin White in his season debut. Ebanks managed to connect with Perry Levy in the end zone for the game’s only score. The Sharks fought to the end, but were unable to get into the end zone.

 

Facing off against the young Dolphins this Saturday, KPMG plan to work on key areas and come out hungry to win a game dubbed “The battle of the seas.”

 

League action continues on July 12 from 11 a.m. at the Ed Bush field.


Panthers stalking Digicel title!
Jul 8, 2014, 9:50 am

Going into Week 2 of the Digicel Premier League, the Burger King Panthers look like the team to beat.

 

Taking on the young Maples Dolphins, last year’s champions had little trouble securing the 28-0 victory. Jonathan Thomas and Kwei General of the Dolphins shined on defense with five and four tackles, respectively, but that was not enough to stop Burger King. The versatile Glenn Duran Jr. ran in two touchdowns for the Panthers and quarterback Chris Lucas hooked up Matt Bone and Simon Rivers for a touchdown apiece.

Fabio Gall was the lone bright spot offensively for Maples with three receptions. The Dolphins face off against the Island Heritage Predators on July 5, who were on a bye week last weekend and are hungry to be back on the field.

 

The ladies of Star Athletic took the field in their bright uniforms against the ladies of the Dominos Lynx. It was mother-daughter domination on defense for Star Athletic as Amanda Nelson and Trenny Nelson recorded five tackles apiece. Keisha Solomon stepped up into the QB position for the Lynx and managed to battle through the Nelson pressure to record two touchdowns, with both being caught by Christsania Parker. Defensively, rusher Danielle Conolly recorded two sacks for the Lynx and did her part to keep the pressure on.

 

Amanda Nelson continued her relentless play and nabbed a ball out of the air for an interception that she ran back for a touchdown. The game finished in a 13-6 victory for the Lynx, but head coach Lawrence Nelson of Star Athletic is extremely happy in the growth that he is continuing to see.

 

Facing off against last year’s champions the AndroGroup Killa-Panthers, the CrossFit 7-Mile Scorpions seemed to struggle to generate anything offensively. Led by QB Christina Hefner’s 11 completions, the Killa-Panthers seemed to be effective with their mix of screen and run plays. Alicia Dixon recorded six receptions for her team and was a major asset in moving the ball. Hefner found Dixon, Jennifer Cotarelo and Kara Coe in the end zone to record three touchdowns for a 19-0 victory.

 

In the QB spot for the Scorpions was Tamika Byrd, who despite recording 12 completions, was unable to get the her team on the board. The Killa-Panthers now face off against the Anytime Fitness Wolverines on Saturday at 11 a.m.

 

The men’s game of the week saw the dms Hellcats and Lone Star Mustangs in a defensive battle, with the Mustangs hungry to get their first win of the season. Led by QB Jacob Ebanks, the Hellcats were able to move the ball well, but a key drop and a few miscues in the red zone prevented them from putting up more points. Perry Levy led the team with four receptions and managed to keep the attention of the Mustangs defense whether or not the ball was coming to him.

 

Jamie Stephen’s efforts on offense for the Mustangs were derailed by the Hellcat defense led by the constant pressure by Damien Barboram. Phil Brown chipped in with four tackles of his own. New recruit Andrew Wisdom caught the lone touchdown for the Hellcats in a 6-0 win. Wisdom, no beginner to the sport, seemed to fit in well with the Hellcats rotation and promises to be a great asset to the team.

 

The Lady Sharks stepped onto the field against the Caledonian Killa B’zzz with their main QB, Bobeth O’Garro, back in rotation. Completing 11 of her 15 passes, O’Garro looked extremely comfortable in the control seat and lightly fazed by pressure from the Killa B’zzz. Defensively, new recruit Amaris Smith led the way with five tackles for the B’zzz. Her energy motivated the rest of the defense as a number of other players recorded tackles and Jamie Rogers recorded a sack.

 

Nevertheless, O’Garro managed to find Catherine Ebanks and Serena Yates for two touchdowns. Defensively, the Sharks’ biggest force was Keisha Anglin, who nabbed eight tackles to silence a number of the Killa B’zzz movements. Ivana Powery contributed a sack and an interception. With the 12-0 victory, the Lady Sharks remain undefeated for the season thus far.

 

The Anytime Fitness Wolverines faced off against the Zulu Warriors and a QB change saw Nekita Saintvil under center for the Wolverines. The Warriors were eager to remain undefeated behind QB Dionne Whittaker and Zulu’s Brittni Ebanks recorded five tackles. Whittaker completed 10 of 16 passes with receptions spread out across five players. Whittaker managed to find Jessica Ebanks and Shenel Gall for three touchdowns between them.

 

For the Wolverines, Saintvil managed to find Joni Wood and Agueda Blake numerous times, but they were unable to score in their 19-0 defeat. Facing off against the Caledonian Killa B’zzz this weekend, the Wolverines will be hungry to win.

 

The last game of the day, also known as the prime-time slot, exhibited the talents of the KPMG Sharks and the Cox Colts. Led by versatile Richard Campbell in the QB position, the Colts seemed extremely comfortable on the field, with veteran Kevin Solomon taking up the coaching responsibility this season. KPMG struggled a bit on offense with QB Luigi Moxam completing six passes as Brandon Ure and Brad Conolly were the favorite receivers but the Sharks were unable to score.

 

Defensively, KPMG leaned on Ure and Conolly with Jeff Stower making tackles as well. However, the defensive presence wasn’t enough as Campbell completed six of seven passes and found last year’s Rookie of the Year Raheem Robinson and new recruit Terry Ballard in the end zone for touchdowns to carry the Colts to a 13-0 victory. Having a bye the first week, it was the first time the Colts touched the field this season, and Cox looked strong after the work they have been putting in over the offseason. The Colts face off against the Panthers on Saturday.

 

Week 3 of the Digicel Premier League kicks off Saturday from 11 a.m. at the Ed Bush field in West Bay.
