On Saturday, Nov. 17, the King George Youth Athletic Association (KGYAA) officially concluded its sixth fall football campaign with the playing of its annual Frost Bowl championships.
This year’s KGYAA Frost Bowl, which was played at the brand new King George High School stadium, featured not only the traditional title games in the Rookie (ages 6-8), Junior (ages 9-11), and JV (ages 12-14) tackle football divisions, but also that of the first ever JV-Girls flag football (ages 10-14) division.
And in all of the championship contests, the higher seeded teams ultimately prevailed.
The Rookie division title game started off the day, with the #1 Leopards (Coach Rosner) successfully defending their 2011 crown with a convincing victory over the #3 Rattlers (Coach Schaub), 18-6.
The second Frost Bowl contest featured the Junior division championship game, where the #1 Bandits (Coach Schaub) also successfully defended their 2011 title with an impressive win against the #3 Mustangs (Coach Murgas), 30-6.
King George history was made with the Frost Bowl’s third game, as the first-ever all-girls football championship contest was played. In it, the #1 Tornadoes (Coach Lee) bested the #2 Jaguars (Coach Williams), 30-14, to claim the newest KGYAA division’s crown.
Concluding the Frost Bowl championship schedule was the JV division championship contest, where the #1 Scouts (Coach Rodriguez) unseated the #2 Black Bears (Coach Newton), 24-16.
Throughout the day U.S. Marines were on hand to assist in the collection of toy donations for its annual “Toys for Tots” campaign.
The Marines also participated in the coin toss ceremonies, as well as the awards presentations that followed each championship game.
With the completion of yet another successful season of play, the KGYAA reports that it will take a much needed break before beginning preparations for its spring 2013 flag football and cheerleading programs.
