Vipers, Wolves and Maples dominate

It was an action-packed week 11 in the Cayman Islands Flag Football Association’s 2018 Premier League.

At Ed Bush Sports Complex on 15 September, the first game featured Maples up against Titans. Maples, currently seeded number two, showed why they are among the title favourites. Josh Parsons scored two touchdowns and two extra points while Steven Mitzel added a touchdown and Larue Nixon scored an extra point. Titans QB Terrick Myles was a force on defence as he would have three interceptions. In the end Titans were no match for Maples, who won 27-6.

Up next was the Uncle Clem Wolves up against the Miller Lite HellCats. Wolves came into the game ready to seal another win after defeating Maples in Week 10. HellCats scored early with QB Nathan Narcisse throwing a 60-yard touchdown pass to Abdul Patterson. However, Wolves dominated the game with touchdowns scored by Leroy Bodden, David Taylor and Jaryd Bodden. Wolves won 21-7.

The final game of the evening featured the women’s teams of Red Stripe Wolverines and HSM Vipers. Wolverines defence was strong in the first half but HSM would dominate the remainder of the game with three touchdowns scored by Jennifer Coterelo and one by Tanjana Campbell as Vipers won 28-0.

All the nail-biting action took place under the lights at the Annex Football field on Monday September 17th with female teams going head to head.

First game featured Maples Jaguars up against Red Stripe Wolverines. Shantelle Simms was the recipient of most of Jaguars passes from QB Tamika Byrd. However, strong defensive tackles from Shanice Bodden would prevent Jaguars from scoring.

Shenel Gall ran most of Lynx balls, with Courtisha Ebanks and Bianca Hunt making strong defensive tackles for Sharks on defence.
