Flag Football Tournament

SPAD Flag FootballSaturday, September 26what a great day to host SPAD’s first official event of the 2015-16 academic year – the LU Flag Football Tournament. The fun began in the morning at 9:00am and ran until 4:00pm that afternoon. The round robin games were fast and electric, with many highlight-reel plays by students from all years and programs. In addition to the action on the gridiron, there were several skills competition games testing the individual skill and athletic prowess of the players, including a QB accuracy contest won by Ben Machin, a field goal kickoff won by Randy Brabbs, and the 40 yard dash won by Ian Pendrill. A special thanks also goes out to Toppers Pizza who provided lunch for all teams, organizers, and volunteers.

FLAG12 teams in total competed in two divisions, playing a minimum of 3 round robin games with the top 8 teams advancing to the playoffs. The playoffs were very exciting, with some very close and nail biting games. In the end it would be Blue Mountain State (BMS) vs. Mitt DartinBroncos (MDB) battling to be tournament champions. The finals got started with two quick touchdowns by each team. It stayed tight throughout the first half, with the score even at 13 going into halftime. The game was destined to be a nail biter. Each team in the second half took their fair share of penalties as the game started to wind down. In the end it came down to the final play of the game where the BMS quarterback threw a strike to his wide receiver for the score, and they won the game by a score of 25 to 20. With BMS’s victory they were awarded their trophy and $150 for their victory. Congratulations Blue Mountain State.

What a great day it was for football. A special thank you goes out to all participants and everyone who came out, as well as tournament organizers, Davis Beamish, Brayden Misley, Scott Birkbeck, Silas McKinnon, and Andrew Young for running an exciting event. Flag Football was a great way to start the year off.
