The Abaco Flag Football League had a great inaugural opening weekend with six teams from across Abaco playing their first games at the Murphy Town Park. The action had a little bit of everything, including an overtime game, a blow-out and low scoring game.
On Saturday, April 11, the Titans (from Green Turtle Cay) took on the Sharks (from Man-O-War) in an epic battle that saw several lead changes but was finally decided in overtime by a single point. In overtime the Titans marched down the field and scored, but were unable to get the extra point. The Sharks responded with a score and a successful extra point gave them the first win of the season with a score of 34-33.
The game scheduled for the lady’s teams was postponed as heavy rain came down at the end of the men’s game. Their game has been rescheduled for April 19.
On Sunday the Superstars (from Hope Town) took on the Warriors (from Central Abaco). The Superstars took the early lead with a steady offense and a stout defense, holding on to win it 19-6.
In the second game the Dragons (from Central Abaco) showcased a great defensive effort, with four interceptions – including a pick-six – and a safety, as they blanked the Pirates (from Central Abaco), winning 29-0.
