An energy packed third week of the Burger King COED Flag Football opened with Deloitte taking on Burger King. Burger King had their first possession cut short as Deloitte’s defense quickly took over possession. A quick pass to Deloitte’s speedy Kimberly David opened the score board for the night with Jen Choice completing the conversion. Burger King managed to move the ball on occasions but unfortunately Deloitte’s strong defense would not allow Burger King to advance with interceptions from Deloitte’s new addition Taj Haye scoring twice on turn overs. Despite the odds, Burger King capitalise on their last possession with only 27 seconds left in the game with a long pass from QB Justin Derrick leading to a lateral pass to Jose Suero to put them on the scoreboard for the night! Score ending at
Deloitte (42) Burger King (8).
