Anna Maria Island Sun News Story

Andrew Proctor, quarterback of the Island Real Estate Saints,
runs clear of defender Zach Fernandes of the
Beach Bum Seahawks.

The Sun Game of the Week was a showdown between the Beach Bum Seahawks and the Island Real Estate Saints in the Community Center NFL Flag Football program. Oddly enough in real NFL playoff football action, the Seahawks and the Saints played as well on Saturday, but with a different outcome. The Island Real Estate Saints won their 8-9-year-old game 14-6, while the World Champion NFL New Orleans Saints lost to the Seattle Seahawks.

The first half of play was dominated by the Island Real Estate Saints. The Saints scored first when quarterback Andrew Proctor handed off to Taro De Haan, who then passed it back to Proctor. Proctor caught the ball and then reversed field running down the sideline 60 yards for the score. Jackson Hayes ran the two-point conversion in giving the Saints an 8-0 lead. Tough defensive flag pulling by Griffin Heckler, Jackson Hayes, Andrew Proctor and Joey Theil shut down the Seahawks offense in the first half.

The Seahawks got the ball, and in their first possession of the second half, they narrowed the score on a trick play. Zach Fernandes took a double reverse and ran 60 yards for a Seahawk touchdown. The two-point conversion for the tie failed. Great flag pulling for the Seahawks defense by Tori Walter, Daniel Sentman, Ethan Helvey and Zach Fernandes kept the game close.

The Saints finally pulled away and scored again when Jackson Hayes ran in for his first touchdown. The extra point conversion failed and gave the Saints a 14-6 lead. Despite a valiant effort, like their counterpart the Seattle Seahawks upset win, the Island Real Estate Saints hold on victorious.
