Androgroup remains undefeated

| 27/06/2012

(GCFFA): The Dart Women’s League under the Grand Cayman Flag Football Association took a surprising turn during the fourth week of action. The team most anticipated to take the championships, Burger King Wolverines, suffered their first loss, andthe Hot 104.1 Cheetahs, comprised mostly of rookies, celebrated their first win. Kicking off on Friday night was last year’s championship team, Hammerheads Lady Sharks defeating Subway Stingers 26-0. Quarterback for Lady Sharks, Hong Nguyen, continues to fill her role in fine form as she completed 15 of 20 passes with one interception thrown.

Sophia Foster led the Sharks’ offense with five receptions, including one for extra points. She was followed by rookie Trina Gordon with four receptions, including one for a touchdown. Serena Yates added to the score with a second touchdown catch.

It was the interceptions that Lady Sharks made on defense that sealed the game for them. Sue Nixon led her team’s defense with five tackles and one interception which led to a defensive touchdown. Scimone Campbell also intercepted and ran in the ball a good 40 yards for a defensive touchdown. Judy Rivers had a huge game with five tackles and two interceptions. Meghan Boccaccio also contributed to her team’s defense with five tackles.

Although enduring their third shut-out in a row, Subway Stingers played an improved game, spending much more time on offense rather than defense. Missed flags, interceptions and fatigue played a major role in their loss. Quarterback, Christina Pineda, completed 15 of 25 pass attempts, with four interceptions thrown.
Latoya Cover and Keisha Anglin each had five receptions, followed by Joanne Remillard and Dionne Anglin with two receptions each.

On defense, Joanne Remillard came hard with eight tackles. She was followed by Timisha Edwards with four tackles, and Latoya Cover with three tackles and one interception. Nikki Ebanks showed no fear as she rushed past the blockers for the Lady Sharks, sacking their quarterback an impressive four times.

The Dart Women’s League continued Saturday morning with the Hot 104.1 Cheetah’s taking their first win against Maples Bliss, 7-0. Kimberley Rivers, quarterback for the Cheetahs, continues to improve her game, completing 20 of 30 passes.

Jamesette Anglin led the Cheetahs defense with four receptions, including one for extra points. Jennifer Cotarelo had three receptions, including the catch in the end-zone for the team’s lone touchdown. Jessica Richards and Sophia Dilbert added to the offense with three receptions each.

Dilbert also shone on defense with four tackles. Tonia Ebanks-McLaughlin, Shalisa Barnett and Amanda Nelson each had two tackles, and Nelson also sped through with two sacks to Maples’ quarterback. Tracey Seymour, Barnett and Cotarelo each had an interception, disrupting Maples’ attempt to move the ball down the field.
  Ellenor Berry returned as the Maples Bliss quarterback, completing 11 of 25 passes, including three interceptions thrown.  Jessica Maxwell led her team on offense with four receptions. She was followed by Maliqui Awe, Marleena Smith and Somali Small with two catches each.

Berry showed her versatility, leading her team’s defense with four tackles. Maples nearly made the score board as Berry prevented the extra-point conversion by intercepting the ball and running it past the entire Cheetah’s offensive line to the opposite end of the field and into the end-zone. Unfortunately, due to an infraction by her defensive line, the play was called back and the extra-points never counted.

Dianerra Whittaker and Catherine Hines each had three tackles, and Maxwell and Smith came up with two tackles each. Smith also was a force when rushing the Cheetahs quarterback, coming through with three sacks. Maples pressed the Cheetah’s to equalize until the final whistle, never giving the defensive line a moment to breathe.
 

Androgroup Killa-Panthers remain undefeated with their 19-7 win against Lone Star JagerMonsters. Christina Hefner, quarterback for Androgroup, was at 50% throwing with 15 of 30 passes completed and one interception thrown. Her favorite receiver continues to be Cassandra Bodden, currently the top ranked offensive player in the league, who made four receptions including two touchdown catches, one of which she ran in from the 40yard line in her usual flair, her flags elusive as she darted past no less than three defenders in her efforts to secure a touchdown.
  Lisa Malice was Hefner’s next favorite look, completing four receptions with one being a touchdown. Ann Marie Douglas added to the Killa-Panther’s score with her reception in the end-zone for extra points.
  On defense, Suyen Coe made a stealthy five tackles and interception. Bodden, Delicia Ebanks and Heather Roffey each had two tackles. Ebanks also added a sack to her defensive play, and Bodden got the second interception of the game. Denise Delpesh also sacked the JagerMonsters’ quarterback twice.
  For Lone Star JagerMonsters, quarterback Tricia Miller had another rough game, completing just 14 of 32 passes, with two interceptions thrown.
  One of the most spectacular plays of the day was by JagerMonster receiver Monique Roberts, as she dodged the Killa-Panthers defense, rushing the ball 45 yards for a touchdown. Melanie Lewis had four receptions, and Renee Thompson and Erica Bosch each had two receptions to add to the defense. One of Thompson’s balls was a catch in the end-zone for extra points.
  Christina Ravdas is quickly standing out on defense for the JagerMonsters, leading her team with five tackles and one interception. Thompson had three tackles, followed by Lewis and Roberts with two tackles each. Marline Williams also came through with a sack to the Killa-Panthers’ quarterback.
  Call it voodoo or call it strategy, the Zulu Warriors gave the biggest surprise of the week as they defeated Burger King Wolverines 6-0. Quarterback for Warriors, Jessica Pawlik may not have had the best throwing game, completing just 13 of 30 passes including one interception thrown. But the one pass two minutes into the game to Maggie Ebanks in the end-zone that resulted in a touchdown was the most important throw of the day for the team.
  Ebanks proved to be Pawlik’s favorite look, receiving six balls. The speedy Shamar Ennis was another favorite, catching four of Pawlik’s passes. Hortencia Jackson, Dionne Whittaker and Francesca Hamann added to the offense with one reception each.
  Ennis also led the defense with three tackles. Ebanks had one tackle and two interceptions, and Whittaker came through with a next interception. Tanjana Campbell used her long frame to sack the Wolverines’ quarterback twice.
  Every quarterback has an off day, and that’s certainly what Antoinette Lewis, quarterback for the Burger King Wolverines and leading quarterback in the league, experienced.
  Lewis completed just eight of 24 passes, with three interceptions thrown. Joni Wood led the offense with three receptions, and Jahzenia Thomas had two. Benecia Thompson, Carrie Barnett and Jessica Ebanks each caught a ball, but the Wolverines were unable to make much headway.
  Shinette Rhoden led the Wolverines defense with six tackles, followed by Saneata Smith and Ebanks, each with four tackles. Thomas had two sacks and Alex Terry had one sack on the Warriors’ quarterback. Barnett’s height advantage continues to be an asset for Wolverines as she gained another interception on defense this week.
  Week five of the Dart Women’s League continues this Friday night at the Camana Bay Field at 8pm with Maples Bliss versus Zulu Warriors. Games on Saturday morning begin at 10am with Subway Stingers against the Lone Star JagerMonsters. 11am sees Hot 104.1 Cheetahs pitted against the Burger King Wolverines on field one, and Androgroup Killa-Panthers against Hammerheads Lady Sharks on field 2.
