Win Clinches Tie for the Top Record in Football’s JV Division

The Flatbush JV Boys Flag Football Team rolled up its 6th straight win on Sunday afternoon (3/17), turning in their best scoring output of the season in a 20-6 rout of the Rambam Ravens on the Turf Field at Lawrence HS in Cedarhurst, NY.

Though it proved to be a big day for Flatbush, the game marked the first time all season long that the Falcons did not open the scoring. It was the Ravens that got on the scoreboard first, but the defense denied the extra point, leaving Rambam with a 6-0 lead.

It looked like it might remain that way at the half, as the Falcons struggled to put together a consistent drive all afternoon. That changed with under a minute left to play in the half. With the ball at midfield, Quarterback Michael Smouha dropped back and got some protection from his front line. That allowed Sion Dweck to get downfield and slip behind the defending corner. Smouha lofted the ball and Dweck reached up for it. Dweck pulled it in and rolled on into the endzone for the first Flatbush score of the game. Smouha connected with Isaac Soffer for the extra point and Flatbush now had a 7-6 lead. But, the Falcons were not done. Ronnie Novick pulled in an interception on the ensuing drive to take the ball back for Flatbush. It was then deja-vu all over again as Smouha connected once again with a streaking Dweck on a deep bomb for a second Flatbush score in the final minute of the opening half. The momentum had swung completely in the Falcons favor as they took a 13-6 lead into the half.

With a 7-point lead in hand, the defense basically shut the door on the Ravens. Novick pulled in a total of three interceptions on the day, while his fellow defenders recorded 5 sacks on the afternoon – 2 by Gerry Sabbagh and one each by Jacob Kassin, Jojo Sassoon and Maurice Pardes. Offensively, Jack Kassab turned in a fancy sideline grab. To cap off the scoring, Smouha hit Ikey Tawil on a quick hitter just over the goal line. With a successful conversion, Flatbush had a 20-6 lead, which they would hold until the final ticks of the clock.

NEST NOTES: The win moved the JV Falcons record to 6-0 on the season, with one game left to play. The win clinches at least a share of the regular season title for Flatbush. With a win next week, the Falcons will secure the top seed in the playoffs. But, it will not be easy. The final game will pit the Falcons against the Eagles of Mesivta Ateres Yaakov, a team that has lost only once this season. Game time on Sunday, March 24, is set for 3:15 pm at the Turf Field of Lawrence HS out on Long Island.
