Chiefs take the 6/7/8 AIFL Flag Football Championship

The highly anticipated sixth through eighth grade division’s championship game featured the undefeated 1 seed Chargers taking on the 3 seed Chiefs. Both teams won their first round playoff games handily the prior week, and the two teams’ previous meeting resulted in the only tie of the regular season.

The championship game opened with both teams scoring touchdowns on their first two possessions. From then on, the dominant Chiefs’ defense, led by eighth grader Yosef Borodach and sixth grader Tzvi Motechin, did not allow another score for the rest of the game.

Under the command of sixth grader Tani Engel’s excellent play as QB, the Chiefs’ offense scored touchdowns on all but one of their possessions, earning the Chiefs a 45-14 victory.

“I am very proud of the way the team developed and how the boys came together as the season progressed,” said Chiefs coach Yechiel Engel. “The guys worked very hard and did a great job covering for each other whenever we needed it.”

The winners of K-1 division were the Vikings, in 2-3 division the Colts, in 4-5 the Jets and in 6-8 the Chiefs.

Registration is now open for the fall on the AIFL website at www.aiflag.com. The fall season will see the league expand to include a high school flag football.
