Elementary flag team sweeps games at second Chelsea Waterside tournament

The elementary flag rugby team swept the field Sunday at the second Chelsea Waterside Park tournament, beating P.S. 208 6-5, Epiphany 4-3 and Rockaway 5-4.

The eight on Pelham’s squad played consistently well throughout the afternoon. They showed that they learned a lot from their weekly practices, forming strong lines, passing the ball, trying not to bunch up too much, running fast and displaying excellent sportsmanship with each other and their competitors.

All the games were played hard, and each try was well-earned and well-deserved for both Pelham and those they were competed against.

Before the games and during breaks in tournament play, the Pelham team did drills with Nicholas, a player from Pelham’s middle school flag and tackle teams.

The roster: Elliot Brandler, Guy Eustace, Grant Roll, Justin O’Beirne, Luca Phillips, Marco Gracie, Max Laval and Peter Monaco.
