2014 NYC GIRLS FOOTBALL : READY TO ROLL
area has seen in years, high school girls of the Big
Apple are more than ready for some more football of
their own. Girl-only teams from across the city met on
Bronx to participate in the PSAL's final preseason clinic.
The city is entering into it's third girls season and from
all that we see the popularity of the girls game appears
to be growing as more teams enter the sport. In fact
some of the new teams appear rather strong and boast
a healthy smattering of true athletes who play a solid
game of football.
The Clinic was run by Flag football Supervisor Jen Blum
along with help from members of The New York Sharks.
Jen ran the teams through the basics and helped to
reinforce the implementation of rule changes which will
take place to the girls game this season. Always
enthusiastic about football, the Sharks ran the teams
through their paces in a pesky drizzle which showed up
earlier than the weather man predicted.
against real opponents. Just as in any other sport, teams usually get better as the season goes on. If that holds true for this season then spectators
should expect to see some great football. And they won't just see it from teams who've established themselves with experienced returning players, they'll
see some solid play from teams who are actually lacing up for the first time ever!
Of course, expect to see solid play from the teams who've already developed consistency year after year. The Harry Truman Lady Mustangs should be at
or near the top of things in the league as they continued to show talent fresh off the shelves. But they're not the only game in the Bronx so it should be
interesting to see how things shake out. Game fans are especially wondering how past dominant teams like Tottenville, Jefferson, Erasmus, Ft Hamilton,
Lehman, and JFK will stack out . Right now it's probably anyone's guess, there's no telling who gonna do what. In fact, in the past, there were more than
a few lesser known schools who beat solid squads much to the surprise of all onlookers.
So buckle up and hold on because the only thing that seems guaranteed is that it's going to be an exciting season ! Event images have been posted.
We recently dropped in on the scheduled game between
HS Graphic Communications Arts against Martin Luther
King. First whistle was slotted to go off at 4:30 but the
Graphics team was a no show. Instead of packing their
adrenaline up for the bus ride home the MLK squad took
the opportunity to use the opportunity to run their first
offense through a team scrimmage. Of course the first
defense got a workout as well, you can never get too
much practice and it was a good opportunity to tie down
a few loose ends in real time. All we can say to future
opponents is: exercise care the MLK crew should prove
to be a competent one and they’ve certainly got a few
jets who can crank the score board up if given the

WARRI-HERS OF THE GRIDIRON
Season three of girl’s flag football recently got off to a solid start as teams from all over the city got at each other for the first time. Teams
have certainly had their fill of going up against team mates in practice and most were more than ready to get the show on the road.
To recap: Girls all over the country are no longer content to cheer from the sidelines, they want in. And they’re all in too! This is the start
of season three of the girl’s game in New York City and the sport is certainly growing as more teams get added to the league each year.
Now from what we see the girls of the Big Apple have been paying close attention to their fellow male students because they're coming to
the gridiron preloaded with full skillset needed to perform solidly.
WAS NOT WAS
2014 NYC PSAL You Go Girl !
Maybe its cliché, but it really fits, so we’ll use it!
When the girls teams play, they bring an
intensity to the table, hot and smoking out of the
box.And that intensity stays in your face from
the first whistle to the last; everybody plays all
out football from beginning to the end.
That’s certainly the package which got
unwrapped when The High School for
Economics and Finance met The East Harlem
Initially The Economics team caught the Pride
flatfooted with a sweet but deadly loft pass
which was deadly effective. Flustered by
Economic’s success, The Pride dug in on
defense to shut them down. Nevertheless The
Economics team worked itself to 12 points early
in the game.
Tenacity is one of the hallmarks of solid teams and The Harlem Pride seems to have it in spades.
They progressively got into a defensive rhythm which shut everything the Eco team threw at them, including that pesky pass. In the
Interim they progressively churned out successes on the offensive side of the ball so that when the smoke cleared they racked up 40
points. The Economics team never parlayed their initial early 12 points into anything other than an early threat while things got so good
for The Pride that they even made positive gains on the defensive side of the ball. Needless to say, shame on any team who allows the
Pride to run down hill on them because once they get into a groove they’ll likely be unstoppable. Any team who lacks staying power will
certainly get picked apart by Economics passing power which should become even more potent over the season. Both teams left the field
with their heads held up and rightly so, because things are just beginning !

In time, Harlem shut down most of Eco’s offense except that pesky loft pass which continued to have limited success against the Harlem
team despite the expectation that it was coming.
