2011 PAL Flag Football SEAS versus Presentation
The SEAS Eagles played their fourth game of the 2011 PAL Flag Football season. They played Presentation. This is another team that they did not face last year.
On offense, Jack scored two touchdowns: one touchdown of a short pass from Michael and a second running touchdown on a broken reverse. This is the first time that I have seen them try to run a reverse to Jack. He said that they also ran it once in the first game that I missed. Handing off to Jacob at halfback and starting to the left, Jacob handed the ball to Jack. Jack started back across the field, but the defense had penetrated deep into the backfield. Jack stopped, reversed direction and sprinted to the flag for touchdown.
Jack also had another touchdown catch called back due to a holding penalty on the offense line. Continuing the trend from Friday night, there were a large number of penalties called. On all three of the long runs, two by SEAS and one by Presentation, the officials called players for illegal blocks. The coaches and parents for both teams were getting very frustrated.
Jack had one other pass thrown to him. Joe threw him a long pass in the end zone. I was surprised when Jack did not make the catch. Jack said afterwards that defender hit him in the face with his arm just as the ball was getting there...
On defense, Jack played linebacker. With SEAS leading in the fourth quarter, Jack sat out on defense and Presentation scored its only touchdown. Defense continues to be SEAS biggest strength. With Jack, Jacob, Joe, Malcolm, Jake and Michael playing the linebackers, cornerbacks and safeties, they have a lot of team speed.
SEAS won by the score of 26 to 6. Their record is now 4 wins and 0 losses.
