Manitoba teams excel at flag football nationals in P.E.I.

IT was a good week for the Team Manitoba under-16 male and female teams at the 2014 Flag Football National Championships in Charlottetown, P.E.I., on Sunday.

The young men from Manitoba, coached by Mike McCheyne, won all eight games they played at the tournament, defeating Saskatchewan 40-27 in the final, while the women lost a close 29-28 decision to Quebec in the final.

The women's team from Manitoba, coached by Chris Helgason, went undefeated in round-robin play, beating Quebec 31-26 on Friday before losing in the final. The men's team had to square off against our neighbours to the west twice before beating them again in the final.

The under-18 female team from Manitoba lost 14-6 to Nova Scotia in the bronze-medal match.

The tournament, now in its eighth year, included teams from P.E.I., Nova Scotia, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Manitoba.
