It’s the much anticipated flag football championship re-match that almost never happened.

It took a nail-biter of a playoff semifinal Tuesday night for the perennial Comox Valley Sports & Social Club champions Young and Old to gain their usual entry into the final and a re-match with the Multiple Scoregasms. The two teams met in the spring season finale, with Young and Old emerging victorious by a single point after stuffing an extra point conversion on the final play of the game.

This time around, Young and Old needed a squeaker of a victory to gain entry to the final, only clinching the spot with a 13-12 victory over Hug and Tug after the pass on an extra point conversion sailed just outside the reach of receiver Bruce Armstrong in the end zone. That ended the comeback and Hug and Tug’s shot at a big upset.

The Multiple Scoregasms rolled fairly easily to their spot in the final by a 34-6 score over a depleted Sacks In the City roster and are looking forward to another crack at Young and Old on Tuesday night (Aug. 28, 7:15 p.m. at Brooklyn Elementary). Meanwhile, the Sacks in the City team will play for third place against the winner of Hug and Tug and Off in the Shower, who won their game 20-19 over the Flag-Its.

The final two spots will be decided by a re-match between the Dirty Bandits and Flag-Its, who played to a 25-20 Flag-Its win in their most recent meeting.

Fall sports registration is currently open for the CVSSC, with leagues in dodgeball, indoor soccer, volleyball, floor hockey and ultimate Frisbee. The final deadline for most of those sports is Sept. 17, though there is a Sept. 3 deadline for ultimate Frisbee.

Teams, small groups and singles can all sign up online at www.comoxvalleysports.ca, or contact Scott for more information at 250-898-7286 and scott@comoxvalleysports.ca.
