Coed Flag Football @ Promise 2 Charter School
The Falcons tried to extend their win streak to 5 games as they went toe to toe with Promise 2 Academy Charter School whose record was 4-1 coming into Saturday's game.
The Falcons started with the ball on offense, but could not punch the ball in on our first drive of the game, even though we moved the ball down the field very well. On Promise 2's first drive our defense was solid and forced them to punt on three plays. On our second drive of the game we able to score because of Brahma Acevedo's ability to maneuver through PA2's defense on a short pass from quarterback Sunai Regap. On the extra point attempt, Sunai tried to thread the needle and it was intercepted. Despite Sunai's valiant effort to dive to try and tackle the player who intercepted the ball, PA2 scored and were awarded 1 point. On PA2's second drive of the game, senior Christopher Galindo intercepted a pass thrown over the middle of the field. That turnover lead to another touchdown and opened the flood gates. Sunai Regap brilliant play continued. He made great decisions and beautiful passes the entire game and distributed the ball evenly. 7th grader Mia Minor and 8th grader Cyrus Wilpan both made their first receptions of their careers.
Our defense was solid once again, with two more interceptions on the day. One by senior Brian Wilk (first of the season and career) and the other by fellow senior Mario Suazo, which resulted in a touchdown/pick 6 (second interception of the season). Newcomers Jaidyn Rennie and Javen Ventura both played substantial minutes and played well on defense. And 5th grader, David Ortiz saw some action in his first game (he was promoted from a practice player to a game player last week).
Final score OWN 31 - PA2 7. The Falcons improve their record to 5-0 on the season with three regular season games remaining. Big shout outs to Mrs. Pabon and Ms. Angrum for coming to the game and supporting the team.
The Falcons take on Carl Ichan Charter School this Saturday, October 27th at Eugene McCabe Field at 2:30pm. The team will have their yearly BBQ after the game at the field.
