ליגת פלאג מעורבת – שבוע 8 – COED

The regular season comes to an end in a final week full of deep passes, ballerina esque runs by Jerome Wojtalik, and so very many interceptions. The stiff competition seems to have hardened the league into two seperate tiers, one tier 'in it to win it', and the other more 'in it' and less 'win it'.

 

We had the second and third place teams facing off against each other, this week, for their second time, Gronk Spikes Cause Deflation VS WTF. Last time GSCD took the narrow victory over WTF, will history repeat itself? If you manage to read all the way through this I will reward you with the scores and a tiny biscuit. As the shrill sounds of the whistle started the game, you could see the young upstarts GSCD with swagger and confidence written on there faces. Meanwhile WTF, coming off a loss, seemed as if there were perhaps cracks threatening to tear them apart.

 

GSCD got the ball first and a quick button by the [Yitzy] Fox-[Simmy] Peritzman Duo got them started on the right foot. Apparently after the right foot comes down so does the wrong one, because that was the only completion that drive and the ball was quickly turned over. WTF had the ball in their court and as we all know once you get the ball you never wanna let go. They drove down field with their trademark fake handoff and double QB shenanigans that works oh so well, Mordy “The Char” Charnowitz (because he burns people, get it?), scored the first TD. GSCD, pulled out one of there best weapons from their utility belt, Batman [Chaim Eedry] this 6’6 man-bat hybrid swooped over the WTF defense and plucked a touchdown out of the air, making the score 7-7. WTF, with the ball secured back in there sweet sweet protection, drove up field making sure to secure the ball, oh wait, that didn't happen. WTF immediately threw an interception to Simmy Peritzmen, the clear Spiderman to Chaim’s Batman, ( DC-Marvel crossover, if only). With the clock running down, and mere seconds in the half Fox threw a dime of a touchdown, he must be quite monetarily set, because he was throwing dimes like no one's business. The score at the half, 13-7.

 

If every team is like a symbiotic organism that needs to be working in perfect unison to effectively produce, it seems as if WTF symbiosis was more of a parasitic relationship last night. They were left ripe for the plucking by GSCD and pluck away they certainly did. GSCDs second half drives were akin to formula one races, fast and effective. Fox continued dropping dimes, with seemingly no thought of fiscal responsibility, while the rest of his team easily picked those dimes up for some beautiful touchdowns. As we neared the end of the game there was a look of desperation on WTFs collective faces. They finally showed us why they won the Co-ed bowl last year and pulled an amazing drive out of there hats, full of that trademark trickery. Jerome ran down field spinning so much he may have acquired his own orbit, it definitely worked, he quickly scored, putting the score at 26-13. Though it was a truly honorable hoorah, it wasn't enough, The final score was 32-13 GSCD over WTF.

 

In our other games this week The Flying Unicorns shut out Red Hot Julius Peppers 24-0, though we haven't given the Flying Unicorns that much attention, their team is truly magical, and they have more than just a fighting chance this postseason. Crave Munchers, the unofficial abandoned child of the league lost to Sacks and the City 18-13. The Cougars seemed to be on a late season rally with a 27-20 win over the Drunkin Donuts.

Well folks, you know how it goes, I'll see you all next week on our first ever edition of postseason “Sport Sport”. – By Baruch 'Bucky' Apisdorf
