Hardened by a long 2016 JCC of Bayonne Sr. Division Indoor Flag Football campaign, the (0-11) Eagles put all their trials and tribulations behind them as they set their sights on a playoff win versus the (6-5) Bengals. Giving the Bengals all they could handle for most of the game, the Eagles found themselves trailing by just two points at 38-36 with just five minutes left to play. As the Bengals relied heavily on Drew Radil who accounted for 4 TDs and 8 expts with Anthony Baez pitching in on a 10 yard TD catch the Eagles put their faith in the hands of David Matos(5 TDs, 2 expts), Mariam Rasslan (2 expts), and Ezekiel Lupianes (2 expts) with Jack Kruchkowski at the QB helm. As both squads geared up for the home stretch, the Bengals’ QB Chris Ballance caught fire hitting Radil on a TD and two point dart making it 46-36, Bengals. Hoping to catch the Bengals’ defense napping, the Eagles tried a quick count run but the move back fired as the Eagles’ runner couldn’t get out of the endzone resulting in a safety and a 48-36 Bengals’ advantage. Holding a twelve point lead, the Bengals put their victory into the lock box as Mike Piscopos printed to paydirt for a 54-36 win.
