Wednesday, April 9, 2014
THE Cebu City Chiefs beat Manila Arrowheads, 20-14, and claimed its fourth consecutive crown in the 2014 Philippine National Flag Football Championships last Sunday at The East Visayan Academy.
The Chiefs, who were coached by David Joseph Shields, dominated the entire tournament and only faced a solid challenge from the Arrowheads in the finals contest, which Cebu won, 20-14.
The Arrowheads actually drew first blood as wide receiver Dino Teves scored a touchdown early on. But the Chiefs’ wide receivers Noe Sabellon and Anthony Eumague answered with two quick touchdowns for the chiefs to lead, 13-6, at the turn.
The Arrowheads showed persistence in the second half, with Teves and Emilio Lim scoring a touchdown and a two-point conversion to give the lead back to the Arrowheads, 13-14.
The Arrowheads were silenced in the last five minutes when running back El-El Enopia scored a touchdown from a throw by Chiefs’ quarterback Ronald Abangan for the final count. (RSC)
