Green Turtle sweeps Marsh Harbour in flag football competition

The Green Turtle Cay Crusaders succeeded in capturing the win in both junior and senior youth flag football scrimmage games in Green Turtle Cay on October 5 on a day that was dedicated to raise funds for upcoming surgery for Percival “Junior” Roberts.

The Marsh Harbour Wildcats put up a good fight in the juniors match against the Green Turtle Cay Crusaders but the two interceptions returned for touchdowns proved too much to overcome. The Crusaders won the match 28 to 16.

After taking an early lead in the senior game the Wildcats saw their lead slip away in the second half of competition as they fell the Crusaders 40 to 28.

During the game a variety of snacks, wings and burgers along with drinks were on sale to help raise funds for Junior Robert’s surgery. Doctors recently found a large tumor in one of his lungs and he will be having surgery on October 8 to remove a part of his lung.

Next, Green Turtle Cay travels to Man-O-War on Monday, October 14 for the final scrimmage game before the official start of the flag football season.
