Calabash clobber Hammerheads

The Calabash Soldiers spared no ammunition while thrashing the Hammerhead Pirates at the Ed
Bush Field.

From the start of the game the “Soldiers” established their presence with deft passes and tactical plays, which would later prove to be their winning formula.

The elusive techniques of star player, Glen Duran, were devastating to the Pirates’ defense.

The Calabash Soldiers opened the scoring in the first half after Peter Whittaker received a well placed pass from his teammate, quarterback Glen Duran, and powered his way to a forty-yard touchdown.

The dominance of the Soldiers continued in the second half when Glen Duran, mesmerised the Pirates offence and ran all the way in to score his touchdown.

Tensions flared as the Pirates looked to each other for a solution to Calabash Soldiers’ dominance.

But it was to no avail as, at the end of an impressive performance, the Calabash Soldiers came away well-deserved winners.

The 13-0 victory leaves the shipwrecked pirates no prize or loot from which to salvage their pride.

Winning coach of the Calabash Soldiers, Johann Moxam, said, “We are happy with the performance. We knew that if we did our jobs individually we would win.

“The key to the victory was the performance of the offensive line. The Pirates are a good physical team but they could not contain our passing and running game.

“We knew that they would be depending on the ‘danger’ brothers, Nigel and Baron Solomon, so we shut them down. We dominated every facet of the game.”

Losing coach, Selkirk Watler, gracefully accepted defeat, “In the first half we moved the ball around very well, but there were some faulty cues.

“For the most part, we played well. I thought it would be a close game. We have some key guys and some new players in key positions, but we just need to jell some more.”

There will be a major showdown this Saturday at the Ed Bush Field in West Bay, when the Calabash Soldiers take on league leaders, West Bay Hell Cats.
