Duke Grant Magazine 2013 Year in Review – Coming in January 2014

10 December 2013

A Salute to the Football Mom! There is no season like Recreation Football Season and no commitment that can compare to it.  Not just for the players, dads and coaches but for the Moms. The “Football Mom” is the most dedicated individual on the face of the earth.  If she knew nothing about the game when she started, after a couple of years, she has become the Einstein of the sport.  It you don’t believe it, just ask her. She is all in, whether she likes it or not.  From September to mid-November the Mall is only a faint memory and if her husband is coaching, well, its even worst.  She bravely encourages her baby boy to get tough and hit somebody!  All the while hoping nobody hits him. It’s a 3 month grind where too hot becomes too cold and eventually, too much.  However, the Football Mom wears the colors of her home team and cheers on her boy! So today, we lift our glasses (of milk) to the football Moms of the UCYFL & GBYFL and say thanks for the rides to and from practice, the work in the concession stands, the refreshments for the guys, the late dinners, the listening ear and all of the love and encouragement that sticks with a young boy for the rest of his life. Football Moms, you are loved! Keep it locked in with The Duke as we look back, look ahead and then do it all over again in the Fall of 2014, because like the Mom’s, we don’t have an off season!

14U Jarrettsville Ravens (Red) Advance to Title Game, Stop 14U Terps, 20-0

14U Jarrettsville Ravens (Red) Advance to Title Game, Stop 14U Terps, 20-0

09 December 2013

2013 UCYFL Play-offs Saturday, November 9, 2013 The (14U) Bel Air Terps Red won their first game but were buried in their second, losing to 14U Edgewood Steelers 34-6 on the road.  After that crushing defeat, the Terps went on a 7-game winning streak, outscoring their opponents 199-56, which earned them a November 9, date with the undefeated 14U Jarrettsville Ravens (Black). The winner of that game would advance to the Super Saturday 2013 UCYFL 14U Blue Division Championship game.  Playing on Super Saturday is the climax that all UCYFL teams aspire to achieve beginning in training camp. However, while the Terps where elated to reach such heights, climbing such a mountain would be difficult.  The Jarrettsville Ravens (Black) had already posted an impressive 9-0 record, having outscored its opponents by a whooping 308-24 with 6 shutouts.  Going into the contest, the Ravens defense had only given up 6 points over the last 6 games while themselves averaging over 40 points per game over that span. The Terps knew it wouldn’t be easy and it wasn’t. While the Terps put up a valiant effort, they were simply outgunned by the Ravens. The Ravens started quickly, surging to an early touchdown and never looked back, posting a 20-0 victory and earning a spot in the 14U UCYFL Blue Championship game on Super Saturday.

28 November 2013

GBYFL 11U Championship Game,  Saturday, 11/26/2013 The 11U GBYFL regular season was like a game of musical chairs for  3 highly regarded teams.  The Perry Hall Gators (Gold), The Stembridge Colts (Blue) and the Cockeysville Eagles all entered the play-offs with one loss each.  During the regular season The Colts beat the Gators, the Gators beat the Eagles and the Eagles beat the Colts. In the playoffs, the Cockeysville Eagles beat Perry Hall in a tight physical contest to set up a rematch between Stembridge Colts and the Cockeysville Eagles in a  battle for the GBYFL 11U championship.  The Eagles won the first match 19-13 at Cockeysville on September 28 in Cockeysville.  On a very cold November night, the Cockeysville Eagles dominated the Colts from start to finish, in route to a hard fought 18-0 victory and the 2013 11U GBYFL Championship.  Congratulations to both teams on outstanding GBYFL Season.

8U Fallston Cougars (Blue) Gain Sweet Revenge; Win UCYFL Title  Over 8U Bel Air Terps (Red) 18-6

8U Fallston Cougars (Blue) Gain Sweet Revenge; Win UCYFL Title Over 8U Bel Air Terps (Red) 18-6

28 November 2013

Super Saturday, 11/16/2013 In one of the day’s biggest surprises, the 8U Fallston Cougars (Blue) beat the previously undefeated and un-scored upon Bel Air Terps (Red).  The Cougars scored 3 touchdowns in route to a convincing 18-6 win in front of an enthusiastic crowd at Aberdeen High School.  The Bel Air Terps entered the game with a record of 10-0 with 10 shut-outs.  The Terps had outscored their opponents by a combined score of 305 -0 averaging more than 30 points per game.  The Cougars came in with a 9-1 record with 5 shut-outs, while averaging 32.5 points per game.  These same 8U Terps, handed the 8U Cougars their only loss @ Tucker Field on 10/25/2013.   The Terps started fast but were completely derailed by the sufficating defense of the Cougars.  The real surprise was the Cougar offense which relied on a consistently strong running game and “Big Play” passing to keep the Terps off balance.  The Terps never got on track and spent most of the game looking up at the Cougars.  In the end, it was sweet revenge for the Cougars who earned a hard fought 18-6 victory and with it, the 2013 8U Blue Division Championship.

Jag-Swag Shows up Big, as Cecil County Jaguars Top Fallston Cougars (Blue), Win UCYFL 11U Blue Title 20-6

Jag-Swag Shows up Big, as Cecil County Jaguars Top Fallston Cougars (Blue), Win UCYFL 11U Blue Title 20-6

26 November 2013

 Super Saturday, 11/16/2013 The Cecil County Jaguars topped the Fallston Cougars 20-6 to win the 11U UCYFL Blue Division Championship.  It was a rubber match of two teams that split home and home games during the regular season.  The Cougars entered the game at 8-2 with 2 Shut-outs (Only losses were to Emmorton 12-0 8/30/13 and to Cecil County 37-25, 10/19/2013).  Over the course of the season the Cougars had outscored their opponents by a combined score of 231-99.   The Jags entered the game at 9-1 with 4 Shut-outs losing only @ Fallston 22-0 after going down 22-0 on 9/28/2013).  They avenged that loss with a 37-25 victory @ Cecil County on 10/19/2013. It is safe to say that these two teams came into this game believing that they would win.  The Jags outscored opponents by a combined 302-86 or an average of 302 -86. Both teams relied on strong defense and big play offense to carry them.  Since they already played one another twice, were familiar with everything about the other.  The came came down to preparation and execution.  The Jags came out with intensity, slashing their way through, around over and under the Cougars defense.  The Jags played spirited defense  that didn’t really bend until the game was out of reach.  The Cougars never really got on track as their Title hopes were dashed by a dazzling display by a well-coached and talented Jaguars team.  Congrats to the Jaguars on winning the UCYFL 11U championship and to the Fallston Cougars on a fine UCYFL season.
