There’s little or no room for error this postseason as ranked squads in the Bahamas Flag Football League (BFFL) try to gain as much yards to get into the championships.
Teams will begin their trek to the prestigious crown on Sunday when the league’s play-offs start, over at the Roscoe Davis Football Field. Up on the gridiron first will be the S.C. Femme Fatale Predators taking on the Johnson Lady Spartans. That game will start at 1:30 p.m. The following women’s game will put the Summit Academy Ravens up against the Sands Light Lynx, starting at 2:30 p.m.
The BTC Avengers will play the opening game in the men’s division against the Royal Bank of Canada Lions, while the Summit Academy Ravens will take on the Coca-Cola Hitmen. The first game in the men’s division will start at 3:30 and the feature game will run immediately after. The Finlandia Predators won the pennant in the men’s division, last Sunday, with the Orry J Sands Spartans coming in second and the Royal Bank of Canada Lions and the Coca-Cola Hitmen placing third and fourth respectively.
The Bommer G’s Bobcats and the BWF Pink Foxes both received a bye in the women’s play after clinching the group winning in their respective divisions. The Bobcats took the Coastal Division with a 7-3 win/loss record and the Foxes are the winners of the Atlantic group with a 9-1 record. Other teams making the play-offs are the Johnson Lady Spartans, Femme Fatale Predators, Sands Light Lynx and the Summit Academy Ravens.
The Lady Spartans were the second team in the Coastal group with a 4-6 win/loss record while the Lady Predators closed with a 3-6 record. Both the Lady Lynx and the Lady Ravens closed the regular season with a 6- win/loss record over in the Atlantic grouping. The two teams not advancing were the Bahamasair Dashers and the RBC Lady Lions.
“The two divisions in the women’s section are very competitive and any team can win, because when you look at, the second and third place teams are almost evenly matched,” said Jayson Clarke, a league affiliate.
“The number two and three teams play each other and they are very closely matched, so the games will be very exciting and competitive. It will be equally excited on the men’s side so we encourage persons to come out and watch the games. We moved down to the football field so we can accommodate all the persons who have come out and watched during the regular season. That particular field is centrally located. We also thought it was the best to place to have the postseason games since we will only be playing one game. So it is [a] win or go [home] game this weekend.”
The play-offs continue on June 14 and the championships is on June 28.
The Lady Spartans, Lady Lynx, Lions and Hitmen are reminded to wear their color uniforms, while the Predators, Lady Ravens, Avengers and Ravens should wear white.
