Lady flag team is defeated

The lady flag football team “Simply Marvelous” took second this weekend in the Swamp Bowl, losing 13-7 in the championship game to the University of West Florida.

Simply Marvelous ended the tournament with a 3-1-1 record.

“Overall, we did good. We learned a lot about ourselves,” said head coach Marvin Green.

This year’s team has six returning players and nine new players.

“I was a little disappointed that we lost in the championship,” said Ayanis Dennis from Fort Lauderdale. “It was a great learning experience.”

Last season the team lost in the quarterfinals of the Swamp Bowl and went on to win two national championships.

“It’s all about winning regionals and nationals,” Green said. “We looked very good with it being the first five games of the year.”

Ruby Nugent and Nikki Goldthreate made the all tournament team.
