The Antilles School Hurricanes gave it all they could Friday, holding the All Saints Vikings to only six points in the first half, but still wound up on the losing end, falling 12-6 as junior varsity flag football continued this week on St. Thomas.
The Vikings first points came right before halftime, when quarterback Jelani Smalls dropped back but couldn’t find anybody downfield, so he took off on a 40-yard scamper for the touchdown. All Saints failed at the two point conversion, to go into the half 6-0.
All Saints had the ball first when the second half begun, and started their drive with three straight running plays, including two big gains by Tavis Richardson. The three runs opened up a play action pass by Smalls, who was able to find a receiver open downfield, and even though Antilles was called for pass interference, he held on and took it in for the score.
The two point conversion failed, so the Vikings were now up 12-0. Antilles scored to open the fourth when Tyler Percell ran it in from three yards out, to make the score 12-6. The Vikings went on to win by the same score.
On Saturday, Addelita Cancryn Junior High and Bertha C. Boschulte Middle School made up a game that was rained out last week. BCB won 16-0.
