Teams Aim for Playoff as Season Winds Down

Intense competition marked the seventh weekend games of the Abaco Flag Football League’s third season which is quickly winding down to a close with playoffs and championship games on the horizon.

In the first game of the day the Tigers and Superstarz battled for the win and second place in a tight game. The teams took turns scoring throughout the game with bouts of good defense played. In the end the Superstarz edged out the Tigers by one score, winning 19 to 12.

In the second game of the day the Sharks took on the Pirates in a competitive match. The Sharks took the lead in the first half and seemed ready to close the game in the second half; however, the Pirates made a strong push cutting the three score game to two scores with enough time left to possibly close the gap. Meanwhile the Sharks slowed the game pace down looking to stall the Pirates late game surge. The Pirates closed within seven points but time ran out as they fell to the Sharks 35 to 28.

The Divas took on the Rogues to start Football action on Sunday, and what the game lacked in a lot of scoring it made up for in intensity. The ladies battled back and forth; however, the Divas would score last and the difference of an extra point gave them the win over the Rogues 13 to 12.

In the final game of the weekend the Dragons face off against the Superstarz in a match that web back and forth several times. A couple of interceptions late in the game would lead to the Superstarz capturing the lead and the win defeating the Dragons 31 to 20 in the end.

Games will continue on Saturday, May 13; however, there will be no games on Sunday in honor of Mother’s Day.
