Wildhawgs Bull Sharks

In a fierce weekend of flag football competition the Hope Town Bull Sharks put up a great fight but in the end the Marsh Harbour Wildhawgs prevailed, sweeping all three age divisions on November 22 at New Vision Ministries field in Marsh Harbour.

In the senior division the Wildhawgs pulled to an early lead over the visiting Bull Sharks in the first half of the first game and while Hope Town showed some fight in the second half of action they fell short of making a comeback falling 12 to 32.

In the second senior division game the defenses for both teams tightened up and the game ended up a low scoring affair with the Wildhawgs shutting out the Bull Sharks 14 to 0.

The junior division featured two exciting matches. In the first game the Wildhawgs built a comfortable lead and kept the Bull Sharks playing from behind for the rest of the game winning with a score of 52 to 36.

The competition got more intense in the second match with Hope Town scoring first; however, Marsh Harbour fought their way back and took the lead and the game in the end by a score of 22 to 14.

While the first game between the Wildhawgs and Bull Sharks in the peewee divisions was a well-played game with both teams playing tough defense, an interception by the Wildhawgs stopped a late surge by the Bull Sharks as they fell 0-21.

In the second game the Wildhawgs offense came alive taking the lead and keeping it until time ran out on the Bull Sharks as Marsh Harbour won 40 to 12.

During games played the previous week in Man-O-War the Hope Town Bull Sharks faced off against the home-town Makos. While competition was tough the Makos nearly pulled off a complete sweep as the Bull Sharks won their first game of the year in the junior division.
