Hey Toronto Flag Footballers!
This week was another difficult one for field conditions across the city.
Our Saturday games progressed as usual at North York Civic Soccer Fields, but the storms over the weekend led to Fieldstone’s games being moved at the last minute to the Downsview Park Soccer Dome.
All of our Sunday games were played with some fantastic finishes and lots of fun for all!
We didn’t have quite the same luck trying to move our Tuesday night JCC Chai division after the permits were canceled, but we will make up all JCC Chai missed games with sessions on Wednesdays June 5 and June 12 at Westmount Collegiate Institute.
Thank you to all of our players and families for being so understanding about some of the last minute changes this season.
We will always do our best to make sure that our games can be played, and strive to do everything in our power to make sure that all of our players have the flag football experience they deserve!
Let’s all hope the weather holds out for the rest of the season!
Now on to football…
GAME OF THE WEEK
The first half saw the 49ers open up a 14-0 lead early thanks to touchdowns by Zachary S. and Hamish E.
The Niners and Ravens then exchanged touchdowns, before Ravens’ QB Brett A. found Damon K. in the end zone for a 10-yard strike on the last play of the first half, cutting the halftime lead to 21-14.
Both defences stood tall in the second half, and the Niners took a 28-21 lead into the final five plays.
The Ravens were looking for magic—and they got it, thanks to another Brett A. touchdown, this time on the receiving end of a pass from Hudson D.
The Ravens could have elected to end the game tied at 28, but chose to try a two-point conversion to win the game. However, fantastic defence from the 49ers thwarted the Ravens’ two-point attempt, and ended their comeback hopes.
You can’t help but notice many parallels between this game and the 2013 Super Bowl!

But this time… It was the 49ers who got the last laugh!
PLAYER OF THE WEEK
David K., Rams #29, Sophomore Division
This week’s Player of the Week is David K. of the Rams!
David threw four touchdowns this weekend across two games, both of which were Rams victories!
By the end of the season, there is no doubt that we’ll be thinking of David as one of the greatest players to ever wear the Rams uniform.
Dickerson. Warner. Faulk. Gurley.
