Youth Flag Football League (3rd-6th grades) Update 9/24/15 - In the first game of the season, the 5/6th grade team took it to the 3/4th grade team by a final score of 28-6. Tucker Stinson scored the only TD for the 3/4th graders on a great run, while both Blake Passey and Jesus Camunez had two TD's each for the 5/6th graders, both scoring on interception returns and great runs. Blake added a tackle in the end zone for a safety also. Next Wednesday's game will pit the 3rd and 6th graders against the 4th and 5th graders!
10/1/15 Update - It was the Blake and Jake show, as Blake scored 4 TD's for the 3rd/6th team and Jake scored 3 TD's for the 4/5th team in a 30-26 victory by the 3/6th team. Jake's long TD run following a quick slant pass reception got the 4/5th graders back in the game and made the score close after the 3/6th team dominated the first half. Next week will have the 3rd and 5th graders playing against the 4th and 6th graders.
