MMA Flag Football Teams Played Strong in Toronto Tournament

It was a great two days of football for the Marymount A and B teams on May 13 and 14 as they took part in the 2010 Danny Bob Invitational Girls Flag Football Tournament in Toronto. Despite the teams’ football season already being over in November, the girls ran a few practices at the beginning of May and headed to Toronto to take part in this tournament for the second year in a row. The Marymount A team included senior girls and the B team was comprised mostly of Grades 8, 9, and 10 girls. Twenty teams took part in the two days of football and other Sudbury teams included girls from Lasalle Secondary and Notre Dame College. At the end of the tournament, the Marymount A team finished strong and took home the Second place trophy. Danny Bob, organizer of the event was thrilled with the Marymount contingent and told the Regals’ coach, Matthew Wiecha that he was impressed with the strength of the A team and the spirit and work ethic of the B team. He also invited some of the Marymount players to join him for tournaments in Florida, the Domenican and other parts of the USA as he coaches a traveling girls flag football team that is made up of players from all over the province. Coach Matthew Wiecha was thrilled with the teams’ performances againstt all of the teams and is already looking forward to next year’s tournament.
