NFL Flag Football plays on, KRC looks for champ


NFL flag football action continues Monday-Saturday at the Anna Maria Island Community Center. At this point in the season, it appears the 8-9 division is a dogfight between Beach Bistro Vikings and Waterfront Restaurant Raiders, though the Vikings did recently blank the Raiders.

The 10-12 division looks like it’s going be a three-way fight for supremacy between Mr. Bones Colts, LPAC Cardinals and Ross Built Broncos.

Galati Yacht Sales Texans and Jessie’s Island Store Steelers are tied atop the 13-16 division, although the Texans rolled over the Steelers by a 42-28 margin Jan. 28 to earn a tiebreaker if needed.

The 8-9 division game of the week saw Southern Greens Jets get themselves back into the race by edging Gettel Toyota Texans 14-12 Jan. 27 to even its record at 2-2. This puts the Jets a game behind Beach Bistro Vikings and Waterfront Raiders, which are currently tied with 3-1 records.

Devin Calderon had a big game for the Jets, scoring a pair of touchdowns — on the ground and through the air. Calderon finished with 50 rushing yards and caught four passes for 28 yards. Quarterback Luke Marvin completed seven passes for 105 yards and one touchdown pass. Dalton Guffrie added three catches for 43 yards to round out the offense.

Calderon also had a big game on defense for the Jets, leading them with four flag pulls and an interception while Guffrie added two pulls and an interception of his own. The Jets winning margin came on a fumbled snap in the end zone resulting in a safety for the Jets.

The Texans were led by Julius Peteriet, who ran for 123 yards and two touchdowns on eight carries. Ava Zink added 15 rushing yards while also adding a flag pull on defense. David Daigle’s four flag pulls led the Texans in the loss.

In a battle of first-place teams, Mr. Bones Colts edged LPAC Cardinals 34-32 Jan. 24. The Colts, the league’s lone undefeated team and lead in the eastern conference, received a huge game from Rory Houston. He passed for 83 yards and one touchdown while running for 104 yards and scoring three touchdowns. Malachi Goode caught three passes for 37 yards, including a touchdown and an extra point, while Ben Connors ran for 25 yards and scored a two-point conversion and an extra point.

Houston also was a force on defense, intercepting three passes, including one he took to the house. He lead the team with four flag pulls. Malachi Goode added three pulls, while Connors and Zachariah Goode both added interceptions.

The 13-16 game of the week also was an offensive battle with First American Bank Ravens slipping past Mar Vista Raiders 33-26 behind 124 passing  yards and four touchdown passes from quarterback Jack Shinn. Shinn also added 60 rushing yards and a touchdown, while Chris Johnson chipped in with 45 rushing yards and 33 receiving yards, including a touchdown and an extra point. Pierce Hogan finished with 55 receiving yards, including a touchdown and two extra points, while Burke Hill and Austin Morrow both scored touchdowns to round out the Raven offense.

Shinn paced the Raven defensive effort with five flag pulls and a sack, while Hill and Hogan each finished with three flag pulls.

Danny Doyle paced the Raiders with 84 passing yards and a pair of touchdown passes, while Tony Sperdoto added five-yard touchdown pass to go along with four catches for 37 yards and an extra point. Nico Calleja added 43 rushing yards and scored a pair of touchdowns. Joseph Cucci finished with 22 receiving yards and a touchdown, while George Lardas added an extra point to round out the Raider offense in the loss.

Doyle and Sperdoto paced the Raider defense with six and four flag pulls respectively.
