SPC Flag Football Tournament

...The wind swept across the frozen tundra of Loriella Park as grid-iron gladiators squared off in a test of strength, endurance, and sheer will on Super Bowl Sunday afternoon. The imminent threat of frostbite could not dissuade nearly 50 athletes of varying shapes, sizes, and skill levels from clashing in their pursuit of one common 18 inch tall trophy made out of a Nerf football, empty soda bottle, aluminum foil, and duct tape.

At the inaugural Spotsylvania Presbyterian Youth Group flag football tournament Andy's team took home the title with a record of 3-1. Wide receiver / running back Marshall Dallas was named MVP and took home the Alan Hager trophy. Although they were heavily favored the victory did not come easy. During pool play the only blemish on Team Andy's record was recorded by a very scrappy Team "Special," and Team Tim put a scare into Team Andy in the championship. But in the end they proved to be in a class of their own.

Thanks to Mr. Steve Judy and Rev. Alan Hager for serving as referees!
