The Falcons Flag Football team defeated Calvary Baptist 25-7 in its season opener on Thursday, Aug. 27. Junior J.T. Payne threw four touchdown passes, connecting with four different receivers: sophomores Broderick Hogan and Travis Politakis, and freshmen Ben McKeig and Gabriel Weitzman.
On the defensive side of the ball, the Falcons consistently stymied the Eagles’ offense. Freshman Joseph Rawicki and sophomore Sean Holmes both had interceptions, while the Falcons defense held the Eagles to only one touchdown. “The defense had an outstanding game, and applied continual pressure on the quarterback,” said coach, Brian Jones. “This victory was truly a team effort, and a fantastic start for our rookie football program. We have much room for improvement, but the players did well and they had fun."
Next up for the Falcons is the home opener against Briarwood on Sept. 4 at 5:30 p.m. at the Frassati Catholic Fields.
