Lynx flag football team stays undefeated

Anchorage Daily NewsOctober 2, 2012 

The unbeaten Dimond flag football team has already locked down the top seed for next week's Cook Inlet Conference playoffs, but uncertainty still exists for the second and third-place teams in the final week of the regular season.

By virtue of Monday's win over Chugiak, West moved into second place, but if the 8-5 Eagles lose to East on Thursday, the 8-5 Mustangs can regain second place with a win over Service.

The CIC regular season comes to a close with all eight teams in action Thursday. The playoffs are scheduled to begin Tuesday.

Anna Sophia Roberts led the Eagles with 14 pulls, Mimi Troxel added seven pulls and Morgan Hepner made two interceptions, returning one 36 yards for a touchdown.

Shiccia Harris-Grant gave West a 6-0 lead on a 2-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, but Chugiak returned an interception 86 yards before halftime for a 6-6 tie.

West put the game away with Hepner's interception return and a 36-yard punt return for a touchdown from Harris-Grant in the second half.
