Week Five; the week where the divisional games begin. The week where separation amongst the leaders, begins…
8:30: STORM SINK PIRATE’S SHIP
The day started off with the Storm going into the cove to take on the Pirates in a wet environment. From the get go, the Storm didn’t let the hostile fans or the weather affect their efficiency. QB Jimmy Sanford connected on TD’s with 5 different receivers over the course of the day. The Pirates bright spot was when Devon Kiloski snuck by the sturdy Storm offensive line to log his first career sack. Storm end up winning an emotionless game, 51-0.
9:30: CAMO KIDS TOP CAMO MEN
Next on the docket, we saw America’s Children go on the road to take on Flagnado. The first half of the game was all about defense, as both teams weren’t able to find any rhythm whatsoever. Some onlookers of this game and may of noticed that America’s Devin Conley stole the show with his 14 total receptions and 187, but the real star of the day was Joe Daly. When America’s backs were against the wall and they needed a big play, Daly came through. He made the top 10 plays two times on spectacular highlight reel catches including an INT that set America’s Children up for the eventual game winning score. America’s Children comes back from 13 down to win it by 5 as the clock expired. Due to intense outlash and scrutiny by the fans and media, Flagnado’s GM was forced to fire their long-term offensive coordinator as they foreshadow Drew Brees v the Lions just a day later. America’s Children win a big divisional game, 25-20.
10:30: GOATS TAME TIGERS
The seemingly unstoppable Tigers went into Gate City to take on the dysfunctional Goats. The Goats who are a perennial championship contender, have added depth and superstars at every position, but have yet to find their balance as a squad. They picked a sure good time to get their act together. The Tigers came out knowing it was a game they needed to prove to the league they were here to stay, but they didn’t account for one thing…3 time defensive player of the year, Erik Johnson. Johnson applied non-stop pressure and shook what is normally a well oiled Tigers offense. The Goats held a 10 point lead at the half but the momentum of the game had shifted in their favor thanks to a Jerry Brown pick 6 to end the half. The second half was more of the same as the Tigers still had no answer for the Goats D. Johnson ends the day with 3 sacks and 8 total QB pressures. Goats stun the Tigers 41-12.
11:30: CATALINA SURVIVES RAINY REPLACEMENTS
In yet another rain shower during a Replacements game, Catalina Wine Mixer stayed at home for their tasty matchup. Catalina didn’t expect a new and improved Replacements squad to give them quite the battle. Replacements QB Matt McGuire ate up the clock the first half calmly spreading the ball around from receiver to receiver. The Catalina, bend but don’t break D however shut them down on their side of the field on all but one occasion. Catalina’s Chris Connolly caught a pair of TD’s in the first half to give them a slim 12-8 lead. Out of the lockerroom the Replacements Alex Kahl spoke with sideline reporter Jenny Taboya about what they needed to work on to get into the endzone. “I feel like we’re there. We just need to execute better and mix up our play calls a bit.” Just as predicted, Kahl took a handoff from McGuire that confused the Catalina D and gave the Replacements their first lead of the day. Catalina didn’t wait long as Mitch McCarthy caught a 55 yard post to give Catalina a 4 point lead. Catalina made a big stop on the final drive to hold on in a tight contest, 20-16.
12:30: DREAM TEAM’S SEASON TURNS NIGHTMARE
At high noon the Fan Faves went on the road to take on the undefeated Dream Team. The Fan Faves were coming off an ugly loss last week and were out for blood. On the first play of the game, early MVP candidate, Ben Young caught a 60 yard bomb to give the Fan Faves a premature 6 nil lead. The Dream Team had no answer for the Fan Faves D as they managed just one first half first down. Despite a 21-0 deficit at the half, the Dream Team fought their way make to make it a game. QB David Zocco connected with red rumbling center, Neil Tansey to get on the board. On the ensuing possession, Zocco got beat in coverage but was able to recover to rip the ball from the receivers hand and then weave his way into the endzone to pull them within 2 scores. But at the end, Ben Young was too much. He found the endzone one more time to clinch it for the Fan Faves. Dream Teams perfect season ends as they fall 29-12.
1:30: VIKINGS BANKRUPT MONEY TEAM
Heading into Saturday, the defending champion Vikings were 0-3 and were pitted against a talented young Money Team. The Vikings got the scoring started off with the Forsaith’s, Jake and Nate hooking up on their first of 2 TD’s together on the day. Jake Forsaith then found Mike Lamonday for his first of 3 TD’s on the day. The Vikings Matt Aprin was then able to leap up for the first of his 3 TD’s on the day. Yes..there is a theme developing here. The Vikings finally found themselves despite the Money Team putting up points and yards. Money Team’s offense was on point, but just couldn’t defend the Vikings depth. Vikings get in the win column, 64-33.
2:30: BATTLETOADS LEAP FREEZE
The days finale saw the Battletoads at home taking on the Freeze. The Fans rioted outside of the stadium during the tailgating session which led to several Freeze players being taken off the team bus and dragged off into the abyss. The Freeze were able to piece together a squad and take on a hampered Battletoads team. Neither team seemed ready to play as the pregame festivities jolted the emotions of all in the stadium. Frogger award winner John Groff was the games lone standout, snagging a pair of TD’s and batting down 5 passes on defense to add to his league lead of 27. The Battletoads win their first divisional matchup of the year, 19-13.
Yes..the rumors are true, we are in fact expanding the playoffs for a more competitive format…
Top Four teams in each conference make the A playoffs.
Bottom four teams will make the B playoffs and will fight for their own championship.
The B winners earn their way Back into the A playoffs the following weekend.
In a week where the rain butchered the grass and disintegrated the scoring sheets, the deluge also possibly changed or aided several of the outcomes on the field. The flags were slippery, the ball was moist and the footing was lubricous. One would commend thy men for being out there, whilst others may scoff at their puerility; most would say, “suck it up…football was meant to be played in doth weather.”
The defending champs were back at it again at 8:30. The Vikings went on the road to take on the red hot T-Money Tigers. Viking team player Kyle Gagnon took the first pass of the day from Tigers AJ Rotella to the house for a pick 6 to set the tone early. The power at the stadium was then temporarily disconnected forcing both teams to relocate to their practice facility next door. The Tigers took full advantage of the brief break and left the Vikings at the other field. Rotella spread the ball to a plethora of receivers finding six different wideouts for TD’s on the day. AJ Lebrecque popped on the stat sheet with a receiving TD and pair of INT’s. Tigers don’t look back from the pick six and win convincingly at home 51-13.
At 9:30 the Scoregasms boarded the SS Sleepy Poseidon to take on the Nocturnal Pirates. The Pirates drew their swords on the first play of the game when QB Bill Hebert connected with their speedster Chad Freeman for the quick seven. The Scoregasms were stunned. So stunned in fact that Derek Riley on the his second throw of the game found a streaking Dan Walkley to tie the game at 7’s. That is when the cannons came out and started to sink the Pirates ship. Walkley added 3 more TD’s to bring his total to 15 on the young season, pulling him within 9 of the single season record..already. The Pirates like most teams had no answer for the Scoregasms aerial assault. John Linnehan caught his first TD of the season to close the game out. The Scoregasms win going away 45-7.
The first game of excitement took place at 10:30. The sun made a quick appearance for the coin toss, but then ducked it’s head back behind the clouds and brought in the heavy rain. Neither team could get anything going in the first half as the only scores were safeties by each team to go into the lockerroom tied at 2 points apiece. The Goats were able to take their first lead of the day when Erik Johnson swatted his way to another safety. The Money Team responded, finally breaking through the stout Goats D with a Kruz Komaridis TD pass from Chad Lemon. Goats charged ahead once again with a nice Adam Lafrance TD to take another 2 pt lead. Money’s Josh Stratton who was quiet all day, broke through with his second catch and first TD to give Money Team the lead for good. Goats drop their franchise high third straight game, 27-19.
Sprinkled in the middle of a pair of great games was a game between the Blue Balls Dynasty and Catalina Wine Mixer. This was a game both teams requested as bad blood has fueled a rivalry. Catalina is a much improved squad from a year ago adding several key additions; several of whom declined contracts from the Blue Balls Dynasty. Unfortunately this battle was over before it started as the Catalina crowd was overshadowed by the heavy Blue Balls fan base. Kiel Canada on the first drive of the game caught a 60 yard TD to set the tone. QB Dave Martel then found Canada on the following drive. Then Martel found Canada again on the ensuing drive. Canada then found the endzone again. And on the very next drive, one more time, Martel tossed one up and Kiel Canada made his 5th TD catch of the half. Catalina found the endzone as time expired to prevent a first half shutout 38-6. A Catalina comeback in the second half was just as successful as Matthew McConaughey’s to the Longhorns..it fell flat. The Blue Balls kept it rolling alright alright alright 60-12.
Game of the day came during the matinee where The Replacements went on the road to take on the undefeated Fan Faves. Ben Young of the Fan Faves took control of this game from the start. His constant QB pressures and pancake blocks to protect his QB kept the Fan Faves in it in the first half. The Replacements led by Matt McGuire found their rhythm early on. McGuire was on the run the whole half, but was still able to hook up with deep threat Alex Kahl for a pair of first half TD’s. The Replacements were in control 22-13 at the break. The Fan Faves Ben Young took his blocking to the second level in the second half. Young caught a pair of TD’s including a controversial game tying touchdown to force this game into overtime. In the free football frame, the Replacements, Keith Desmaris who was the quiet star of the game picked off a Fan Faves pass. As Desmaris landed he saw no space and was able to lateral it back to Kahl who turned the jets on and sprinted down the sideline for the game winner. The Replacements get off the schnide and win an OT thriller 34-28.
The rainclouds and ominous sky finally scattered for the 1:30 game. The undefeated Dream Team stayed at home to take on the youth of the United States otherwise known as America’s Children. The remnants of the elements got to both offenses in the first half as both were very stagnant on their first couple drives. It wasn’t until the Dream Team’s David Zocco handed it off to Dylan Humphrey who faked the run and then tossed it deep to James Harvey for the 6-0 lead. Dylan Humphrey would strike again but this time in the back of the endzone as he tacked on a pair of receiving TD’s to give the Dream Team a commanding 20-0 lead at the half. America’s Devin Conley got his team on the board finding the endzone for his team leading third TD of the year to pull close. QB Andrew Roach then connected with Chris Roach to pull within a score. The Dream Team had to sweat it out to the final drive where Pat Gabriel picked off a Roach pass and took it to the house to clinch the victory. Dream Team doubles up America’s Children 26-13.
In the days’ finale, the Freeze were at home to face a resurging Storm team. The Storm’s Jimmy Sanford lit up the Freeze and melted their homecoming party. He threw 7 TD’s to 5 different receivers. Jovi Santos, who caught a TD from Sanford also added a pair of pick 6’s to give himself player of the game honors. In his postgame presser with Erin Tafoya he said, “I just try to go out there and try to be the best I can be. I won’t let anybody stand in my way. The Freeze have a good team; they just ran into us at the wrong time. Woooo.” The Freeze bright spot remained with Matt Thomas who caught his 2nd touchdown in his many games. The Freeze despite a big win last week, fall to the Storm 58-6.
Week three was the first week of interconference play and it was one for the ages. All games were close and all were highly competitive playoff like atmospheres…in the rain.
To kickoff the days action the well rested Dream Team went on the road to face a Keanu-less Replacements squad. The rain was drizzly making for a wet field in this one, a wet field that was hard for receivers and hard for back to plant on. Newly acquired QB Matt McGuire of the Replacements started the scoring off in this one with a 50 yard deep bomb to Kevin Sheerin to give them a 6 zip lead on the opening drive. After the Dream Team stalled out on a few drives, they were finally able to find their momentum. David Zocco connected with Dylan Humphrey to tie it up. On the following possession Neil Tansey found the endzone to finish the scoring off, Dream Team led it 14-6. The sky opened up a bit more making the field and ball conditions a little tougher in the second half. At the end of the day, the slip and slide took over and the Dream Team were able to hang onto their lead and win 20-6.
At 9:30 the birds began to chirp and the rainbows started to form despite a subtle mist overhead as Flagnado took on the Scoregasms. This was a deep rooted matchup that had gone back and forth for seasons as they have traded wins year in and year out. The Scoregasms came out hot as Flagnado had no answer for former playoff MVP, Dan Walkley. Walkley outscored Flagnado in the first half alone scoring 5 TD’s by himself as Flagnado fought to stay close 31-20 at the half. Walkley came out just as strong in the second half scoring another pair of TD’s to give him sole possession of the Blitz single game TD receiving record. Just last season, Bill Savary broke a 4 year old mark of 5 in a game with 6 and now just 3 games into the Fall, Walkley scores 7. What an accomplishment. Not to be overshadowed in this game was Flagnado’s lethal weapon of their own, Rey Voisine. He added 5 TD’s himself to go along with 11 catches and 200 total yards of offense. Despite pulling within 2 touchdowns several times, the Scoregasms offense was literally unstoppable. Scoregasms score on all but 2 drives on the day as they go on to win 61-41.
In a possible late round playoff matchup, Money made the headlines at 10:30. The T-Money Tigers traveled to Vegas to take on the Money Team. Both rosters squads posses the youngest rosters in the league, so they both had energy to burn in the rain. The Money Team, who got shut out last week was out to make a statement. David Smith got the scoring started with his first TD of the season to give the Money Team a quick 7 point lead. Shortly after Garrett Glavin of the Tigers finally made his presence shown with his first TD of the year. Later last years rookie of the year runner-up, Josh Stratton found the endzone for his first TD of year later to give the Money team a slim 2 point lead at the half. The Tigers Danny Lebrecque came out in the second half and put his name on the ballot for regular season MVP. Lebrecque intercepted two passes, had a qb sack and had a pair of TD’s on the day, one of which came with 12 seconds left to give the tigers the victory. Tigers survive and stay unbeaten for now 37-35.
If you like defense and physical football, the 11:30 game was the game for you as the Fan Faves traveled to Catalina for a Wine Mixer. The first half was filled with forth downs and batted balls and qb pressures which led to just 6 measly points on a Chris Connolly touchdown in the back of the endzone to give Catalina a lead going into the break. The second half was more of the same but with a little more statistics. The Fan Faves Brendon Bernazzani tied the game up with a quick out at the goal line to the sure handed Dylan Berry. Fan Faves added the extra point to go up a point. Just a few drives later, Catalina’s Danny Connolly found his brother Chris once again to take a 12-7 lead. As the 2 minute warning approached, Bernazzani put together a drive that people write about. He hit receiver after receiver in stride, gashing the stout Catalina defense. Finally after a well orchestrated drive, Kevin Langevin was able to punch it in the give the Fan Faves the a one point lead. Catalina tried to get the ball into the endzone as time was expiring, but the clock was not on their side. Fan Faves survives a big test, 13-12.
The matinee pitted the Nocturnal Pirates versus the freshly rebuilt Freeeeze. The Pirates came cannons launching. QB Bill Hebert connected with speedster Chad Freeman for the first of his two TD’s on the day to give the Pirates a quick lead. The Freeze took awhile to get going thanks to a stout lock down D by the Pirates James Gauvain. The Freeze finally got on the board thanks to a Matt Thomas leaping endzone grab. Not long after the Freeze put the Pirates on ice as they bombarded their way to a 19-7 lead at the half capped off by a 35 yard endzone grab by rookie Phil Perkins. Coming out of the break, both teams flip flopped safety sacks to set the tone for the second half. The Pirates, Freeman added his second TD catch to pull them within a score. Timmy Perry (welcome back) of the Freeze added yet another safety sack to secure the victory. The Pirates put up a valiant effort, but the Freeze were just too slippery in the wet conditions. Freeze win their first game of the year 23-17.
1:30 saw a possible South Conference finals playoff battle as the Storm traveled to the Dynasty to take on the Blue Balls. Mark Boulanger, who leads the league in receptions, caught the first score of the day. But the Storm answered right back when Bill Savary caught his first of the year to tie the game up. Jay Vance continued his bid for league MVP with a pair of first half TD’s to help the Blue Balls go into the lockerroom with a slim 18-12 lead. Blue Balls Kiel Canada caught a little shovel pass outta the break for a score to keep it rolling. That was when the momentum shifted. With reigning MVP, Savary knocked out action, the Storm’s Jovi Santos stepped up. He tipped three passes and caught a pair of TD’s to complete an impressive comeback. Vance tried to answer with another TD, but was held down (literally) as the Storm escape the Dynasty with a W 26-24.
The days’ finale saw the Battletoads go on the road to take on America’s Children in a blackout game. The fans completely cleared out the stadium which meant the television cameras and network affiliates weren’t able to broadcast the game live. Our lone sideline reporter noted that America’s Children found their QB of the future while the Battletoads Ben Glassman finally popped onto the scene. America’s Children jumped out to a 12 nil lead but the Battletoads experience shined through giving them the fortitude to comeback. Scott French slung the ball all over the field, completing to a plethora of Toads for a total of three TD’s on the day. The Toads win their first game of the young season away from the swamp, 24-18.
Week two kicked off over this past weekend and we saw several more possible championship previews as we did in week one.
The day started off with America’s Children going on the road to take on the T-Money Tigers. Both teams come in undefeated and with the youngest rosters in the league. This game got off to an odd start with a Kurt Lebreque safety sack to give the Tigers a 2 point lead. On the following possession, Ross Pepin of America’s children turned in a safety sack of his own to tie it up at 2 a piece, but that’s not all folks. The Tigers defense struck again forcing yet another safety to make this a 4-2 game with 10 minutes left to play in the first half. The ensuing possession the Tigers finally found their rhythm. QB AJ Rotella connected with Joe Gennaro for the first of two scores on the day. Dylan Brodeur then picked off an America’s pass and took it to the house for his first of a pair of pick sixes. America’s Children was able to hang around up to the half but the second half was all Tigers. T-Money cashes in with an easy W 42-8.
The next game we saw the birth of a superstar as The Replacements took on Flagnado. Both teams were short bodies leaving much to be desired in the fatigue department. After a sloppy first half Flagnado came out with a subtle 13-7 lead. Coming out of the tunnel Flagnado unleashed it’s MVP candidate. Rookie Orlando Anderson was able to find the endzone 2 times and pick off two passes and taking both of them to the house. The Replacements put up a valiant effort but ultimately had no answer for Anderson as Flagnado rolls 33-13.
At 10:30 we saw what some bookies call a possible Championship preview as the Gate City Goats went on the road to take on the Blue Balls Dynasty. The Goats rank annually as the top league defense as the Blue Balls rank among the top offense. The first half lived up to the Goats style of play. They created pressure and wouldn’t allow the deep ball of Martel and his Blue Balls. It wasn’t until a Jay Vance INT that set up the Blue Balls with good field position that led to their only score of the half. Blue Balls go into the lockerroom with an 8-0 lead. Despite the Goats quality defense the Blue Balls found a way to adjust in the second half. Adam Gill throws for a score and catches one as the Blue Balls win a game that is closer than the score indicates 26-12.
Up next the Battletoads traveled to the always sunny Fan Faves stadium. The Battletoads came out with a decimated roster as they suited up just 4 green guys. The Fan Faves were also short handed but were also able to make short work of the Battle-less toads. Ben Young was the superstar on the day as he disrupted the Toads offense with his constant pressure that led to a pair of sacks. The highlight of the day belonged to Kevin Langevin. Langevin became the first and sole member of the 40/40 club. The only person in Blitz history to amass 40 receiving touchdowns and steal 40 interceptions. Fan Faves roll 30-8.
The matinee featured a healthy Scoregasms squad and a much improved Money Team. The Money team just a week ago set their franchise record for most points in a game, unfortunately for the Money Team, that Money Team didn’t show up. The Scorgasms had their number stifling every 4th down opportunity and hot zone possessions with picks or key deflections to lead to an eventual shutout. Scoregasms Tyler Tripodi snagged in a pair of TD catches to go along with a pick six. Scoregasms win 54-0.
Another possible championship preview took place at 1:30 as the defending champion Vikings went on the road to take on the Storm. The Vikings, like any football team struggled without their field general in this one. For the first time in franchise history, the Vikings failed to score a point in the first half. Defending MVP, Bill Savary led the Storm to victory in this one as he tossed 4 TD’s on the day and played a mean deep safety picking off 3 Vikings QB by committee passes. Storm win easily 32-14.
The day’s finale saw the Freeze traveling to the beautiful confines of Catalina for a wine sample. This game was over before it started with Catalina’s Danny Connolly rushing up the sideline on a hook and ladder for his 2nd rushing TD of the young season. Chris Connolly stayed hot reeling in a TD and a pick on the day. It was so easy for Catalina, it was almost like the Freeze weren’t even there..that’s how bad the coverage was. Catalina dominates from beginning to end 28-0.
As most of you know, the Blitz offices were closed last week due to stadium construction and mold found in the foundation of our beautiful state of the art office park; however…we’re back now and let’s get at it.
In the marquee game of the week, the Blue Balls Dynasty traveled to take on the Nashua Vikings in a championship rematch. The Vikings still high off of their championship victory just a few short months ago came out a tad bit sluggish in this one. Blue balls cap Dave Martel got the scoring started early as he found who else, Kiel Canada for the first TD of the blitz fall season. Martel found his rhythm as he connected with Canada one more time and found the touchdown machine otherwise known as Adam Gill to give the Blue Balls a 28-6 point lead at the break. The Vikings coaching staff got together for some second half adjustments as they made their attempt at a comeback. Mike Lamonday was the first to break through in the second half followed by The redzone threat, Matt Arpin adding a leaping TD in the back of the endzone. Nate Forsaith was then able to find the endzone for his third TD of the day to pull the Vikings within a score. At the end of the day, Martel and Canada of the Blue Balls were too much. Canada caught a deep go route to clinch it. Blue Balls avoid a Vikings repeat victory 40-32.
The 9:30 game proved to be far less suspenseful. In a matchup that featured Catalina Wine Mixer traveled to Flagnado to rekindle their third straight opening day matchup. Unlike the games of the past between these two, this game was over well before it started. Newly converted to QB X Connolly was letting the ball fly all over a usually stout Flagnado defense. Connolly to Connolly was a repeated theme as Chris Connolly caught 8 balls on the day, two of which went for TD’s. Flagnado was able to get the best of Catalina in overtime the last two season, but this season was a different story, Catalina dominates 44-14.
Just like the game before it, the 10:30 game lacked the drama of the first. The new look Pirates took on the new expansion team T-Money Tigers. The Pirates came out strong at first, moving the ball down the field, but ultimately were unable to punch them in each time. The Tigers took advantage of the all the Pirates weaknesses. The tigers who have the biggest roster in the league both size wise and physical size wise, capitalized all day. The Lebreque family had a field day hauling in a total of 4 TD’s and a pair of picks to close out the day. The T-Money Tigers sink the Pirates new ship 39-2.
The 11:30 game pitted an original 6 matchup with 4 championship banners between them as the Fan Faves traveled to take on the Scoregasms. The Fan Faves after missing a season came back and didn’t miss a beat. Kevin Langevin found the endzone first on his first possession on offense in a calendar year to get it started in this one. Scoregasms struck back quickly though with a Dan Walkley shifty touchdown. Walkley struck again to give the Scoregasms their first lead of the day, but it wasn’t long until a Leslie Traeger touchdown tied it up before the half. Both teams go into the break at 13 a piece. Out of the break the Ben Young of the Fan Faves found the endzone on a short 1 yard screen to give them a quick lead. Traeger later added another TD to clinch the game for the away team. Fan Faves win 26-20.
The day’s Matinee featured the Dream Team taking on the new look Freeze..er…Rough Riders. The Dream Team tried to find consistency in this one but just could not as their favorite receivers were the other teams defenders. However, the Freeze’s lack of energy and roster depth hurt them in this one. The Dream team miraculously survive 18-17.
At 1:30 the new look Goats took on the new look Storm. The Goats added several pieces this offseason to compliment their already machine like momentum. With three time reigning defensive player of the year, Erik Johnson, the Goats were able to shutdown the Storm entirely in the first half as they went into the lockerroom with an 18-0 lead. The second half is where the Goats depth shined through. Featuring a roster of double digits, the Storm stook no chance despite their athletism and spectacular football IQs. The Storm’s Jovany Santos had a good receiving day spoiled as the Goats win in convincing fashion 34-13.
In another platitudinous type game, The Money team formerly known as the Untouchables went into the swamp to take on the Battletoads. It took Chad Lemon awhile to get going but once he did, the Money Team was in full effect. Former first round pick Josh Rice found the endzone two timesfor his first career TD’s. Rookie Devonte Parker shined and looked like an MVP in the making with 3 TD catches and a pick on the day. Money team clobbers the QB’less Battletoads 33-13.
The final game of the day pitted a pair of expansion teams battling the elements. The sky opened up and rained down on the Replacements and America’s Children game making it an old fashioned 1970’s defensive slopfest. After several 4 and outs on both sides, America’s Children PJ Demario broke through for a pick six putting the only points on the board for both teams at the half. On their first possession of the second half, America’s Kyle Neverman connected with Devin Conley for a quick 16 to nil lead. The Replacements refused to let the rain literally and figuratively rain on their debut. Team captain Eugene Sartin picked off a pair of passes that set up a Alex Kahl and Tony Ruffo for respective scores to bring them within a safety. The momentum was in the Replacements favor but the clock was not, as the time ran out on their debut. America’s Children hangs on to win a tough one 16-14.
One week in the books and a lot of great action and talent was displayed out there on the field. Plenty more to come…keep those engines revving fellas. Til next week…g’luck and godspeed.
With week one in the books, everyone has anxiously been clicking and refreshing the Schedule and standings tabs to see where they stand. After the powerhouses played each other and the newbies all played each other, we found one thing…everyone is just as equal as everyone else.
This is Blitz Flag Football and things do change; people get hurt and teams sign Free Agents, but right now, it looks to be an action packed season full of surprises. Great opening weekend everybody.
