Adult Co-Ed Summer Flag Football.
The Sun sports game of the week was an adult co-ed flag football game featuring the Beach to Bay Construction Saints and the Jessie’s Island Store Jets. Eight teams grace the gridiron this summer season. All are seeking the Community Center’s coveted title of Adult Co-Ed Super Bowl Champion.
The Beach to Bay Construction Saints won the toss and capitalized on their first possession. With second down and five, quarterback Larry Berkery threaded the needle to a diving Jason Mickan in the middle of the end-zone for the touchdown. The extra point was good on a Berkery to Shawn Kaleta pitch and catch, 7-0 Saints.
On the first possession for the Jessie’s Island Store Jets, they went three and out, thanks to a sack from Scott Eason on a big third down play early in the game. The Jets did the same on defense when they forced the Saints to a three and out on their next possession. With the big stop on defense, the Jets offense marched down the field mainly due to a long 30-yard catch and run by Ian Fetters. On second and goal from the eight-yard line, Jason Mickan, of the Saints, intercepted the pass in the end-zone and returned it the entire length of the field for the pick-six touchdown. The extra point was no good, 13-0 Saints.
With five minutes left in the half, quarterback Matt Piermarini threw a crossing route to Adam Mott for the five yard TD. The extra point was good on a sideline out pass to Fetters, 13-7 Saints. The half ended with a drive ending interception by Robert Mandrine of the Jets and an exciting 40-yard quarterback run by Berkery that was stopped short on the five-yard line as time expired.
The Jessie’s Island Store Jets started the second half with the ball on offense. They didn’t waste any time, and on second down, Piermarini threw a 33-yard bomb into the end-zone to Fetters for the TD. The extra point was no good, tie game 13-13. The Jets defense forced the Saints to a three and out and the offense took advantage of the opportunity. Piermarini led his team methodically down the field. On third and goal from the five-yard line, Kyle Stopa caught a middle crossing pass for the TD. The extra point was unsuccessful, and the Jets took the lead 19-13 for the first time.
The Saints did not have any substitute players in this game and with only seven minutes to play, fatigue was setting in. They again went three plays and out on offense. Piermarini sensed this and on second down sent Stopa on a jet fly pattern and connected for the 40-yard TD. The extra point was good on a diving catch in the corner by Stopa, 26-13 Jets.
Kaleta had a little left in the tank for the Saints, and with four minutes left, he took a hand-off and ran 45 yards for the touchdown. The extra point was unsuccessful, and the Saints were within a score. With two minutes left, the Saints defense came through with two huge Eason deflected passes and an incompletion, each time stopping the clock and giving the ball back to the Saints with only 17 seconds used. The Saints moved the ball up field on their first two plays, but on the third down play, they fell two yards short of picking up the much needed first down.
The Jets took over possession and with less than one minute left, were able to run the clock out. The exhausted Saints players gave it all they had and the exciting back and forth game ended with the Jets soaring to victory 26-13.
