The visiting Man-O-War Makos left Marsh Harbour after playing some highly competitive flag football with one victory over the Wildhawgs in Abaco Youth Football Association (AYFA) action on November 8 at New Vision Ministry’s sports field.
The day began with the senior (14-17) division, and the Wildhawgs built an early lead with a good blend of runs and passes. The Makos pushed back and scored a couple of touchdowns in the second half of the game; however, the Wildhawgs prevailed winning 39 to 12.
In the second senior division game the Makos took advantage of three interceptions and took the early lead. The Wildhawgs battled back and outlasted the surging Makos, winning 21 to 18.
The peewee (6-9) division followed the seniors. The two teams scored touchdowns back to back keeping pace with each other early on but the Makos stopped the Wildhawgs on two possessions and kept the scoring going. The Wildhawgs pressed but the Makos kept the lead winning 32 to 20.
In the second game the Wildhawgs fought hard and managed to overcome the Makos in a tight game winning 24 to 18.
The junior (10-13) division were the final teams to play. In both games the Wildhawgs took the lead and outscored the Makos 42 to 20 in the first game and 52 to 30 in the second game.
Flag football games continue on November 15 with the Makos hosting the Hope Town Bull Sharks in Man-O-War at the softball field. The Marsh Harbour Wildhawgs will then host the Bull Sharks on November 22 and the Green Turtle Cay Falcons on the 29 at New Vision Ministry’s Field.
All game days start at 10am with the Senior Division playing first, followed by the Peewee and Junior Divisions, then the order is repeated.
