Many games were played at the Rose Garden on a beautiful weather weekend. Partly sunny skies and mid 60’s kept everyone from getting overly sunburnt, which is always a win. Although it was a beautiful day here in WNY many were missing Saturday. Most were traveling to Miami to cheer on our beloved Buffalo Bills. Even though attendance was light at the Angry Buffalo there was still plenty of action and games played and the best part is that B’s Brother is back, which always makes football feel right. Let’s get into the games, Shall we…

 

Breakfast Club

 

Special Kay’s 54 vs. Messy Jessies 45. This was an offensive showdown as neither team had an answer on how to stop the other. New Guy Nate showed for the first time for MJ and it showed to be a big pick me up for the squad. Jeff Easton was continually hitting Nate and George Lombardo to gain yards and get down the field. Steve Moser continued to show his intelligence, finding and exploiting the weak spot in MJ’s defense, scoring on every drive. SK’s scored on the last drive of the game having the first round draft pick for SK’s finally show up, Jeremy Streit, catch the game winning touchdown 

 

Division 1:

 

Tight Ends 44, vs. Scared Hitless 14. Tight ends are back and ready to take the title as D1 Champs. You may be wondering what happened to TEIM to have them get back to what seems to be their old dominating team… They made necessary cuts, Ben Stack, who takes the fun out of playing football, and they got a QB who can actually complete passes, David Kleckler. That mixed with what seems to be a weaker D1 than in past sessions will make your team look really good. When Emily Curry returns from IR they will be unstoppable making their solid stacked roster even better. 

 

Eyes Downtown 52, vs. Passed Our Prime 17. Do not let this score fool you. No, Bobby and company are not that good even though they want to believe they are. POP was missing a bunch of key players in their lineup this week. Jeremy Olson was out along with Ralph Finley and others. This match was not a fair fight. Derek Pew threw an awful game, missing his targets and unable to connect passes to anyone on his team. 

 

Division 2:

 

No Punt Intended 38, vs. Frodo Swaggins 12.  What happened to FS? Better question, how did NPT pull this one off? They were missing more than a couple of their better players Amber Hay, Jamie Warren, Carlton Coatworth all MIA for this one and they still managed to grab the win. One thing that they were consistent on was sending Schbend Betsa on that go route and NEVER throwing the ball to him. Dude can run but Kyle Coniff doesn't have the arm to get the ball that far. For anyone reading - you do not have to cover the deep ball, Kyle will only throw it underneath. Maybe someone should have told FS that before this game and they might still have an undefeated record. 

 

Division 3:

 

Can't touch this 30 vs. Itches and Ohs 24. Can’t touch this looks good every week, and now that they added Anthony Battaglia their offense and defense looks even better but the real story here is the brunette girl on their roster. I am not sure what her name is but week after week I watch her and she is quietly good, always open and catching passes and making plays for her team. This week was no exception, Laura Streeter was trying to cover her and couldn't keep up. She had multiple yards and even 2 Td’s on Laura. By the end of the game CTT had the Moser squad imploding, yelling at each other, and of course yelling at the refs. Here’s an idea for Itches- Instead of yelling at everyone, try changing the defense to cover the good girl to prevent the Td’s she's scoring.

 

716, 29 vs. Mountain Dew Me, 28. MDM looked like they were going to take this one easy, having the score at 28-7 by half. Everyone on this team is fast, blonde, and super athletic. There was no shortage of action by MDM. But 716 had an answer for them by Derek Pew once again benching himself. Dylan Jaloza comes in and takes over the game, finding his receivers and making the plays to help the team come back and win the game. Qb controversy for 716? Should Derek bench himself for the season to give his team a chance to win?…Probably

 

Division 4:

 

Spinelli’s Plumbing 62, vs. Cobblestone 34. Darryl Carr is a machine. He was not only slinging it and making plays on offense, but he made his debut this week on defense. Cobblestone called on him knowing what a presence he brings to the field, and I think they wanted to see his luscious hair flow in the wind for more than half the game. SP did not care who was on the field, after last week's beat down, they had a point to prove. Their QB was yelling and swearing the entire game at everyone on cobblestone but especially directing his anger and frustration at Darryl. Why was he so angry when he led his team to win by 30? I heard it was because Darryl has such better hair than he does. Even Though SP won this one I’m calling it a win for Cobblestone for having Darryl Carr play the entire match.

 

Puckett All Stars 50, vs. Interdimensional Lightning Falcons 35. PAS is a solid squad full of smart players who play hard and with passion. They have added DeMario Roads back to the squad after a couple years off from playing. His presence didn’t go unnoticed on the field. He was PAS biggest target on offense. He is fast and can jump really high. Andrew Kicak’s worst nightmare. He got beat hard playing safety and instead of trying to recover and make a play he threw his hat in the air to knock the ball down to prevent DeMario from catching the ball. Weird way to stop a pass, especially in a game that wasn't even close. DeMario Roads handled business in this one.

 

Buffalo Vice, 31 vs. Zak Attack 0. Yes, this game was actually played, no that score is not a typo. ZA was missing arguably their best receiver, Sam Lattuca, which hurt the squad and the score reflects it. They got down to the endline multiple times but couldn't convert to get a single point. When you are missing a girl who can throw far, hard, and accurately to get girl Td’s you have to find a way, and Zak Attack just couldn't. Only a couple weeks left to adjust your offensive strategy, or just hope Sam shows up the remainder of the season. Caitlin Mason, on BV, had so many uncharacteristic drops during this game but it doesn't matter when you have really tall Mark on your squad to throw the ball up to. He also had multiple picks again this week to help them win. 

 

Division 5:

 

Woodpeckers 35, vs. TMA 24. Although the Woodpeckers still looked a little short handed it did appear that they had almost everyone on their roster this week. WP’s were utilizing their girls really well in this game and Joe was on fire! TMA on the other had looked off, Their Qb couldn't connect passes, throwing awkward passes even the solid Ron Webber couldn't hang on to. Their defense looked shaking, Prim was covering grass and couldn't keep up with Lauren Moser, who was subbing for Woodpeckers. Everyone has off weeks, hopefully what has overcome TMA they can shake by next week and not lose the momentum they were building all season.

 

Today’s Feast 29 vs. Passing While Intoxicated 16.  Colorado Mike was throwing for PWI this week, and he was throwing to the other team…a lot. Today's Feast made them pay for the missed passes, running one of the many interceptions into the endzone almost full field for a Td. Stanley Szumigala on PWI tried to dive a couple of times to adjust to the low throws Mike was slinging and couldn't come up with the ball. He even hurt his shoulder on one of the plays and had to pull himself from the game, giving PWI absolutely no chance to come back and win this one. 

 

Division 6:

 

Punt Cakes 56, vs. Two Tuddies 20. Punt cakes has a great offense when the young kid with the Mullet shows up. I hate to see when he doesn’t. I think he had every touchdown and every catch for Punt cakes during this game. Two Tuddie’s Qb loves the deep ball, every play he was trying to go for the entire field instead using his receivers underneath. This game was painful to watch, both of these teams need Lenny’s football school for dummies to help them improve asap.

 

That’s a wrap, Until Next week…

We made it to week 5, and what a week it was. We are halfway through the session, some teams are in the hunt for a playoff spot, some teams have one solidified and some know this session is a wash and they need to pack it up and try again next session, perhaps in a lower division.  The temperatures were still HOT and there were far too many sunburnt faces for mid-September. It was great to see some faces this week we haven’t seen in a while, Welcome back Trisha Esposito! It was great to see you at the bar, your presence is missed on the fields. Tommy Hughes, nice to see you back at the bar and on the fields with your relentless banter and trash talking. Great to see Matty Ditullio out supporting Robin. But my favorite part of the day was seeing Jarvis, Matty’s dog. What a monster, in such a good way. Maybe we can convince Matty to come out of retirement for the Halloween Bowl. For those who don’t know the league is seeing how much interest there would be in playing a tournament the week after playoffs, requirements are you must be in costume, and you must have fun! So, if you are interested Let someone important know so we can make this thing a reality.  Let’s talk Football…

Breakfast Club:

Amber Alert vs. Team Jennacide, 36-32. Its hard not to talk about Amber Alert week after week as they keep coming out with the W. Team Jennacide almost had them in this one until the end when QB Jeff May threw a bomb to Anthony Deak for a Td to grab the win. Amber is trying to make a statement as Bclub captain for the first fall breakfast club in this league.

Division 1:

Legends vs. Scared hitless, 50-42. This was a game full of female action. Both sides of the ball the ladies were making their Qb’s look good. Taylor Pagano had a couple catches for TD’s, Heather and Maddie Norton also shined in this one, having to adjust to poorly thrown balls by Joey Batts. On the other side of the ball both Jamie Warren and Mel Linsmair snag some catches and had a couple Tds. Legends were on fire and SH couldn’t match up to their persistent scoring.

Passed our Prime vs. Frodo Swaggins, 41-43 Cross over match D1/D2. Yes, you read that right POP lost to FS.  Frodo Swaggins…I am watching you! The league may have gotten this one wrong by putting you in D2. You are looking like a solid team in every category, even when you are short personnel you still find a way to ball out. No surprise Sean Weisansal had great plays, getting an interception or two against his former team. Amy Taylor was Jeremy Olson’s favorite target, as Ralph Finley was missing. FS is a favorite to win D2, I am sure I will be seeing you up in D1 next session to take on those teams, you were hiding in D3 for way too long…

Division 2:

Freeballers vs. No Punt intended, 29-54. Matt Newman threw for Freeballers as he is a free agent this session. He threw well and helped the Freeballers stay in it for a while but Freeballers struggled on defense. Both George Lombardo and Dave Baker were missing from the line up and their absence was felt. Amber Hay was running circles around their guys. Bryan Munro had an interception right before half which seemed to take any momentum the Freeballers were building away from them. It seemed to be the NPI show for a good majority of the game.

Division 3:

Practice Squad vs. Can’t touch this32-38.There is no doubt in my mind that Anthony Battaglia is the better Batts! He showed it today playing against PS. He came out strong on defense denying B’s receiver’s multiple times. On offense he jumped high to snag a ball in the corner of the endzone to get a score. PS had questionable defense giving up crucial yards. Covering grass instead of a person will not help you win.

Get Schwifty vs. Scott Seniors Starting29-14. GS has played 4 games and every week it seems like they have someone new try to Qb the squad. This time it looks like they may have found the best one yet, Nick Angelo found recievers, utilized his girls and made the plays he needed to win this one. Although he has never played Qb he took to it quickly and got the job. Alivia LaRue played outstanding football having at least one touchdown and a couple sacks. CJ also helped the team by being tall and catching balls only he could reach to help them get the win.

Division 4:

Travis Henry’s Kids vs. Spinelli’s, 30-54. THK’s used to be good, Spenellis is good, and they showed it today in this match. Ryan Rusin played good offense always getting open for his Qb for Spenellis but played even better defense denying Pete Walbrandt catch after catch, making John Langley have to go for long 6 down passes to try to make up yards. THK’s was HOT last session but they have been having a hard time keeping up with the new competition this fall. Maybe playing on two teams plus breakfast club is too much for Langley to handle.

Buffalo Vice vs. Cobblestone, 32-22. Cobblestone was winning before half and it looked like this was going to be the story we have seen all session for BV but they were able to find a bright spot on their squad and a weakness for cobblestone to come out with the win. Mark on BV was the difference maker for the team. He was making outstanding catches that looked like they were uncatchable, and probably would have been for other recievers. He scored at least two touchdowns for squad and ended up picking Darryl Carr off multiple times. He was everyone’s favorite target in the game. Exciting game to watch and love to see them get the win!

Division 5:

Come from Behind vs. Today’s Feast, 26-18. Although Today’s Feast is having trouble winning games, they are a fun squad to watch. They always look like they are giving it their all and the passion to make the plays comes through to the spectators. Come from behind looked more organized and made plays that TF didn’t have an answer for. I’m chalking this win up to the experienced veterans on CFB, Molly Mcdermid had a great rush and didn’t make it easy for TF qb to complete a clean pass.

Woodpeckers vs. Passing while Intoxicated, 24-24. Woodpeckers always seems to be short on players this session and Saturday was no different. They had Matt Newman rushing and the Lauren and Steve Mosier helping them as receivers which proved to be a good strategy, as they were running trick plays with Mosier throwing a couple times at Qb. PWI had Ryan Dombrowski throwing, he must take notes from his other teams QB, Jeremy Burr, as he scrambled far too much. PWI had a couple interceptions picking off both Joe and Steve but it just wasn’t enough to come out with the win.

Division 6:

Not so Sticky vs. Two Tuddies, 38-27. It was a day for the ladies as NSS was short handed with guys it was no problem for the ladies of the team. Their experience and understanding of the game helped NSS get the win. Christine Krol was calling plays and directing the squad while Jenna Blachura caught a deep pass for a Td. Even with halftime Huggies they were sober enough to come out on top.

 

That wraps up week 5, the session is already half over. Hard to believe it’s already been this long, good thing there is 5 more weeks to go! Short and sweet this week. See you all next week and remember I’ll be watching…

 

Week 3 Review

As Week 3 wraps up I think we are all asking ourselves the same questions… How is it still this hot? And why didn’t I apply and, more importantly, reapply the sunscreen?!? I know I was wondering how I could be that sweaty and learning that I could sweat in places I didn’t think possible. I don’t know about everyone else, I could be alone in this, but I am ready for the fall weather. The crisp fall air, a slight breeze, and softer, less concrete, ground while we all play football is what I am looking forward to. I know it's early but looking ahead to next week it looks like another hot one is in the forecast, 84 degrees and Sunny. I will not forget the sunscreen and extra water next week that’s for sure! Now that I wasted entirely too much time ranting about all things not football let’s get into the good stuff, Shall we…

 

Breakfast Club:

Amber Alert vs. Special Kay’s, 41-8. Story of Breakfast club this fall, Amber’s Team is stacked. Dave Baker throws a great no-look pass to Taylor Pagano on the sideline is just one highlight from this one-sided game. I would be surprised if they didn’t end up taking the title this fall.

 

Division 1:

Passed Our Prime Vs. Scared Hitless33–44. Watching Hogan throw what felt like 4 picks in the first 5 mins of the game doesn’t fully capture what happened here. POP had many bright spots in their play even though they couldn’t capture the Win. Ralph Finney was showing off his skills, per usual, with a pick or two himself and Brandy Clarke was added to their already phenomenal girl line up. Before you go and complain, yes, she was added before the deadline. She made a great debut for the team with a couple great catches too.

Gray Hair vs. Eyes Downtown, 23-48. Bobby McConnell was showing his experience in this, finding, and exploiting the weak spot on GH’s defense. Nick Angelo was getting open for him on offense making it hard for GH to cover. Dave Eickoff threw a couple interceptions which won’t get the job done in D1.

 

Division 2:

Frodo vs. Untouchaballs24-22. The match up I was waiting to see, the D3 championship rematch. Frodo had something to prove, to prove they are the team to beat in D2, and they did it all without arguably their best player, Sean Weisansal. This was a team effort for FS as everyone played their role to keep get the win.

Freeballers vs. DILFS, 39-20. DILF’s were short handed, having all three girls play for them the entire game. Jessie Kieta came up big on defense for Freeballers sacking Travis Clevenger to prevent scores before half. Eric Stegmeier couldn’t cover Derew Pew and George Lombardo, as they both made plays on him that would lead to TD’s.

 

Division 3:

Bullet Club vs. Practice Squad35-17. Looks like BC has finally figured it out, adding new, better players and going down a division will help you win. All jokes aside Jeff Easton played Lights out in this game finding Jess McAndrews open multiple times in the middle of the field. John Langley was also showing off his receiving ability catching a tuddy or two and the new addition of Nick Bauer and Nick Buczek is paying off for the squad both contributing on both sides of the ball. Looking forward to them winning the Division and moving up to the Division they were in for so many sessions and couldn’t figure out. Maybe with this new squad the story will be different for them in D2, only time will tell, and whatever the football gods have in store for them…

 

Division 4:

Buffalo Vice vs. Puckett All-Stars,34-38. New Jerseys for BV is the biggest story here. Damn They look good in Pink!! Too bad the Jerseys didn’t give them the spark they needed to pull out the win.

Cobblestone vs. Cunning Stunts, 24-42. Cobblestone couldn’t figure it out against the all-girls squad. Like most co-ed teams who play a girls’ team for the first time they started out thinking that it would be an easy win and figuring out that it was actually very hard to beat a team who has a squad of people with great hands and a system that is designed to win. Is this the year the girls will win the division or will Joey Batts choke in the playoffs to have them lose, again???

 

Division 5:

TMA vs. Today’s Feast, 27-14. TMA is looking like a well-oiled machine while TF looks like they are still figuring it out. TF had a case of the drops in this game, multiple receivers had a hard time holding on to the ball. TMA’s Qb was continually finding theirs, Val Testa not there, no problem, he will hit Diana Bernal for huge catches and multiple yards. Ron Webber also a staple for the squad, so consistent in his catches, such an asset for his team.

 

Division 6:

Two Tuddies vs. Superior Moser Squad, 28-33. Two Tuddies Quarterback has an arm and he showed it off in this game. Going deep to his receiver’s multiple times, even hitting them a couple times for touchdowns.

Lenny’s Ladies vs. Not So Sticky, 16-50.  NSS had a new Qb throwing for the squad as Christine Krol was missing this week, and Rags was missing too. Jeff Krol took on this Role and nailed it. Watch out Rags and Christine, Jeff is coming for the starting role as he dominated against Lenny’s Ladies in this match.

 

One thing I noticed about this session is attendance issues with all teams. I know it's hard in the fall as everyone has other obligations, vacations, family things, birthdays, stags, bachelorettes, Bills games, trying to fit it all in before summer ends and it doesn’t go unnoticed. You are all missed at the fields, except Sean and Joey, and I can’t wait until you return to talk to more people and to see more people playing football! So, let’s encourage our friends to come play and stay and hang out at the bar! Let’s get B’s brother back out here. And I would love to see Ferger out at the fields once this year. Then football will feel like football again!

Until next time, I’ll be watching…

Welcome to Week 4 in the greatest co-ed football league of all time. Although the week may have been light on players due to everyone traveling to LA to support the greatest football team of all time, GO BILLS!!!, there was no shortage of football being played and fun at the fields and at the bar with some amazing people. There were even some faces we didn’t expect to see at the fields…Scotty Dro welcome back. Seems like an eternity that we haven’t heard your infectious laugh and trash talking on the fields. Scott Keller Senior also made it out to support the Keller Squad.  After his amazing performance at the wine tournament, he decided to let his kids take the stage this week and just watch the games. Hopefully he will dust off his cleats this session and come out and play. Now that I have talked enough nonsense let's get into the games, Shall we…..

Breakfast club:

 The Special Kays vs. Team Jennacide,28-75. Steve Moser was missing at Qb so Derek Pew stepped in to play. It was no match for Garrett Bessing and his receivers as they took the game early and ran with it. He was making the plays he needed to make, utilizing his females, and having his receivers in the right spot to come up with the win. SK didn’t have an answer for them on offense or defense as they weren’t connecting passes and they didn’t have an answer for them on defense.

Division 1/ Division2:

Eyes Downtown vs. Scared Hitless, 36-26. Bobby McConnell seemed to have a handle on his offense and got the win over SH. He understands the game and how to win but one area he is lacking is utilizing and trusting his girls to make plays. It was painful watching this game having Mackenzie be wide open in the endzone and he chose to hit Cody S instead. Why make things easier for yourself and get 8 points when you can grab 6? Am I right?!?!?! In the great words of Bobby McConnell himself - Be Better.

Tight Ends vs. Untouchaballs, 49-25. Crossover game. Robin Makula made her return to the TSL. But is she legal to play is the question? At this point I still think it's up for debate. I hope the debate is settled by playoffs. She played well and made an impact in the game making great catches and having a strong defensive presence. Welcome back Robin! I hope you are legal, and I hope we will continue to see you week to week.

Gray Hair Don’t care vs. DILFs, 51-35. Crossover game. The DILFs have been short handed all session and Saturday was no exception. They had enough to field but played iron man for the game. Travis Cleavenger played Qb again this week. Kelly and Katie Keller were on fire catching passes for major gains, but the team came up short losing to GH.

Division 3:

Itches and Ohs vs. Scott Seniors Starting, 39-36. Welcome back Scott Seniors Starting, haven’t seen you since week 1 and it's good to see you back and playing. Scotty Dro looked a little rusty even with receivers as good as the Kellers. Kaite Keller and Nicole Keller both had to adjust to his throws and make the catches even though they were way off their frame and nowhere near their body. Good job ladies making Dro look like a good Qb. Overthrowing his receivers in the endzone, missing out on the extra points proved costly as this was a close match

Division 4:

Cunning Stunts vs. Spinelli’s Plumbing, 44-40.  Looks like the Stunts organized offense was no match for Spinelli’s as the ladies made the plays they needed to grab the win. Jill Battaglia stood out in this game scoring multiple touchdowns. It didn’t matter who was covering her she dusted them and made the catches she needed. SP could score but had a hard time scoring with their females. Getting guy touchdowns won’t win you a game against a gender team. Good try Fellas, maybe next time you will have a better game plan playing a gender team

Interdimensional Lightning Falcons vs. Spinelli’s Plumbing, 24-38. Looks like Spinelli’s was fired up from losing to the ladies, in their second game of the day they were able to pull out the win. They were more organized and called better plays during this match, they even decided to use their ladies more effectively. Good job figuring it out and not losing your cool playing ILF.

Division 5:

Woodpeckers vs. Today’s feast, 22-51. Today’s Feast looks like they are starting to figure out how to win. This match was a fun one to watch if you were routing for TF, Which I was. Such a good group of people and to see them succeed is fun. The guys really took over on defense, not letting WP make the plays they wanted by breaking up their passes, time after time. I hope they keep the momentum going for the rest of the session!

Division 6:

Lennie’s Ladies vs. Punt Cakes, 34-22 Punt cakes did not have a great game plan for this one by putting their best receiver,  young kid with awesome Mullet, at Qb… He had NO ONE to throw to and the drops were infectious, dropping the ball numerous times. When you have a squad of Ladies who can play and A Qb who is experienced its not going to end well for you. Nice try PC, bring back your Qb so you have the receiver you need on the field!

Lennie’s Ladies vs. Blitzkrieg, 41-30. It didn’t matter who was throwing for Lennie’s Ladies this week, they were on fire! Grabbing two big wins against teams that looked like favorites in the division. Light Red Hoodie guy on Blitzkrieg has been slinging all session, getting the wins but today he just couldn’t get it done. Perhaps it was because Alex seemed to be missing this week cheering his squad on.

With that, that ends week 4. Hard to believe we are almost halfway through the session. At this point teams should have already figured out what it takes for their team to win, or know you are not that team and just go out and have the best time on the field with your friends. I look forward to watching you all next week. The weather looks like it will be a perfect football day, 76 and partly cloudy. Stay hydrated and get some rest, Week 5 is approaching, and it should be a good one! Until next time…

It feels good to be back. Week 2 of the greatest football league in WNY felt like football should. There were many more faces on the fields this week; everyone looked happy to be at football; except for a few who never look excited to be playing the greatest sport of all time. And burnt, everyone looked crisped and sunkissed on Saturday after a long and hot day in the sun with very little breeze. No time to complain though because in a few short weeks, or days (since it is WNY and we can have all 4 seasons in a matter of minutes), everyone will be wishing they were sweating instead of shivering. With that short introduction let’s start with what you are really here for; to read about yourself, your team, and hopefully your victory, or demise. Shall we….

 

Breakfast club:

The Messy Jessies vs. Amber Alert, 16-48. Topper made his great return this week as he subbed for Messy Jessie at QB. Unfortunately, Amber Hay drafted a team that was too unbeatable for the great Topper and the rest of the team to handle. Hopefully we will see more appearances from Topper this session as he has taken on a lesser role in the day-to-day operations of the league.

  

Division 1:

Sticky Bandits vs. Scared Hitless, 29-22. The notable, Mel Linsmair, was missing Saturday and her absence was surely felt for Scared hitless as they came up a little short of the seasoned veterans in Sticky. They ran a strategic and calculated offense to make the plays they needed and pull out the win.

Sticky Bandits vs. Gray hair, 48-32. Gray hair was playing with just enough players to field while Sticky brough their army of bodies. George Lombardo drops an interception at the end which would have helped them come back for a chance to tie the game, but he couldn’t hold on to it. Sticky comes out on top for the day with two wins. Sticky was showing off their veteran abilities playing 2, what were D2 teams, to get the wins.

Eyes downtown vs. Tight Ends, 26-31. Tight ends looked a little more prepared this session as they actually had players ready to play and win as they went 2-0 on the day. Was Bro coming back at QB what the team was missing? Or did their girls just steal the show? Katie Salisbury is always on my radar and Amber Hay subbed for the team and made some good plays. She is one to watch out for as every week she looks better and better. Eyes downtown looked like they added a few new faces, unless my eyes deceived me, I thought I saw Ben Stack on the field trying to catch a ball thrown ridiculously hard by Bobby McConnell to make a play.

 

Division 2:

DILFS vs. Frodo, 32-49. Frodo moves up and is dominating D2. Yes, it is only week 2 but it doesn’t look like this team is slowing down any. The girls were the bright spots for the team yesterday as Val Clevenger made a great catch to get them close to the endzone. Sarah Hunt had a falling, gut corralling touchdown and what I think was the next drive, Kristen Daniels got lost in the back of the endzone to catch another TD. Well done ladies.

Buffalo Vice Retro vs. Untouchaballs, 19-37.  Burr sure knows how to scramble to keep plays alive. Matt Helm made some good catches and a couple good plays on defense to help them win.

 

Division 3:

Mountain Dew Me vs. Practice Squad, 33-32. As the score would reflect this was a very back and forth game. Ashtin Fiegel was coming up big for PS and Jen Mertz was making big catches for MDM. MDM is fast, very fast and luckily for PS they were able to contain them long enough to win by 1. Who knows what would have happened if they would have had a couple more drives to utilize their speed.

716 vs. Itches, 35-9. Dylan Jaloza was on fire at QB for 716. That combined with Jessie Kieta at rush was hard for Steve Moser and company to handle.

Practice Squad vs. Itches, 28-28. What a day for PS. They were showing that they were made for D3. B gets hurt at the end of this one but continues to play to help his team tie a D3 veteran team. Rylee Moser was bodying guys off to make the catches she needed, great tactic. I think this is the match up to watch out for in the finals.

 

Division 4:

Buffalo Vice vs. Spinelli’s, 54-54. Vice has Andy Clark back at QB and he still has chemistry with his team after leaving for a couple sessions just to return to play with them again. Makes you wonder why he left in the first place. Grass isn’t always greener I assume... Oh well, on to talking about the really Tall guy making a catch in the endzone over Katie Swanson for a TD, she had no chance. Well played on that one vice. Vice showed their strategy and skill. Shame they didn’t come out with a W. But I guess a tie is the next best thing.

Cobblestone vs. TOX, 36-45. Darryl Carr repeatedly targeted the guy in gray football pants for long balls for this one. TOX obviously noticed as they must have adjusted their defense to stop him coming out with the win. Adrian Cannon was slinging for the squad and was using girls for quick passes and TOX receivers were getting open for him. 

TOX vs. Interdimensional Lightning Falcons, 13-21. As TOX clearly made the adjustments they needed to defeat cobblestone but were unsuccessful against ILF as Joe Miano was using his no-look pass to hit Karl Smith in the endzone for a victory. Aaron Balcerzak for TOX had a couple dropped balls in this game and Adrian overthrew him as well. I do not know how you overthrow someone so tall but Aaron has been overthrown now by not only Adrian but also Topper when they played together. Come on guys, you don’t have to put it that high to get it out of other players reach.

Cobblestone vs. ILF, 14-26. This game seemed promising for Cobble stone until it didn’t. They had the lead for about half of the first half then couldn’t match ILF’s strategic plan of letting them drop passes and not make plays. Darryl tried to force a couple balls to what seems to be his favorite receiver, gray football pants guy, instead of using his open targets. Would really like to learn your name- please email the godfather, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Division 5:

Let’s Get Reccked vs. Passing while intoxicated, 19-30. PWI’s QB didn’t come so intoxicated he couldn’t stand Saturday. Great work! PWI made some great offensive plays, they had a girl QB who lofted up to a tall guy in the endzone for a TD helping solidify the victory.

 

Division 6:

Blitzkrieg vs. Superior Moser Squad, 37-33. SMS has an interesting and cool concept, a girl QB. This game was a fun one to watch as Rylee Moser QB’d most of the game. She hit Steve on what looked like a stop and go on the outside for a TD. Lauren Moser took over at the end of the game and was showing she could also make plays throwing the ball up to Mike for a TD. Blitz was showing a little stronger game as they picked off the girl Qb’s a couple times and New/old Qb Andy was playing a strong game in old Qb, Alex’s absence.

Not So Sticky vs. Superior Moser Squad, 34-26. SMS had Rylee Moser at QB so NSS accepted the challenge and Christine chose to throw for their team. This game was very back and forth and for a lack of a better word, messy. Everytime I looked someone had just fallen over someone else on the other squad. Christine Krol did a great job calling plays and throwing the ball to the open guy to help them come out with the win.

Lennies Ladies vs. Two Tuddies, 20-12. Maddie Norton on Lennies Ladies was showing what she was made of on this one. She had two interceptions and made some great catches. Two Tuddies is still learning the rules and figuring things out and was no match for Maddie and other Girls.

 

A Big thank you to everyone who came out to play and everyone who helped yesterday. It doesn’t go unnoticed. Angry Buffalo did a wonderful job with containing the bees and the bar was bumping most of the day. Thank you to the readers and the contributors.  Please keep your comments coming to This email address is being protected from spambots.
