Coed Flag Football @ Harriet Tubman Charter School
Our Falcons played their first game of the season today against Harriet Tubman Charter School. Their first step in defending our 2017 Region 1 title and trying to win their 7th in 10 seasons.
It was perfect weather for football and for the Falcons to fly high as we started off the game on offense. 8th grader Sunai Regap continued his excellent play from last season. He led our offense to scoring drives on all of our offensive possessions. He connected for three touchdowns and there were only three incomplete passes the entire game (all dropped by receivers).
Our other 8th grade veterans also packed their A games today. Brahma Acevedo also picked up right where he left off last season. He finished the day with one rushing touchdown, one interception and several tackles (flag grabs). Joshua Persaud caught several passes. One for a huge gain. He was also solid on the defensive end. Brian Wilk was solid on defense and caught his first touchdown, a bomb over the middle of the field. Christopher Galindo was huge for us on the offensive end, catching several passes in big moments. Including a diving catch for an extra point. Justin Alston had a strong performance. Scoring a touchdown with 4 seconds remaining in the first half, on a cross filed strike thrown by Sunai. 7th grader Clifford King contributed and scored his first touchdown of his career on a fake reverse play.
Final score OWN 32- HTCS- 14.
It was an all around solid effort from the team. Big shout out to Ms. Angrum for coming out, rocking her OWN gear, taking pictures and supporting the squad!
