Three remain unbeaten in NFL Flag Football

It was a full week of intense gridiron action with games every night and all day on Saturday due to picture day. The Panoramic Cardinals of the 8-9 division continued their hot streak, winning two games this week and remaining undefeated at 5-0. It was the same story this week for the Galati Yacht Sales Texans, who won a pair of games to improve to 6-0 atop the 10- to 12-year-old division. After revamping the team’s rosters in the 13- to 16- year -old age group, the Beach Bistro Cardinals are leading the division at 3-0.
