After sweeping the Man O War Makos during the first flag football meet of the season in New Plymouth, the Green Turtle Cay Falcons played against the Makos on their turf on October 18. The Falcons walked away with a similar result, winning five out of six games losing only the second senior game.
It took two chartered ferries leaving from the Crossing Beach dock to carry nearly seventy family members and friends, who accompanied the Falcons teams to Man O War Cay. Some supporters had made a special outing out of the football game, as they had never been to Man O War Cay before.
A line of golf carts carrying the local supporters stretched along the road hedging the softball field where the games were taking place. It was a beautiful location next to the ocean. The weather that day was sunny and hot.
Coaches and referees were in place, taking shade under the officials’ tent when they were not officiating or when their team was not playing.
The seniors started the first game which saw the Falcons victorious winning 42 to 32.
The Peewees played in the second game, managing to prevent their opponent from scoring a point. The Falcons won 27 to 0.
The juniors were last to play. Again the Falcons held their own, winning 44 to 6.
The fourth game started with the seniors playing their second game of the day. However this time the Makos were victorious, winning 24-21.
The Man O War Peewees put on a good show in their second game, managing to score 18 points, but still not enough to beat the Falcons who won by nine points.
In the last game, the Falcons won, 42 to 6.
On October 11, the Marsh Harbour Wildhawgs opened their season in Hope Town facing the newest addition to the league – the Bull Sharks. The teams played a full slate of games with all three age groups playing against each other twice. The Wildhawgs left the field at the end of the day undefeated in all three age categories.
