The 2007 Little Rock Air Force Base flag football tournament kicked off Monday as eight teams came head to head to see who would be crowned champion.

The 463 AG and the 189 AW kicked off the tournament Monday at 6 p.m. The 189 AW’s defense struggled to slow the 463 AG’s superior offense. The 463 AG ended the 189 AW’s tournament hopes with a score of 28-12.

AMXS #2 and 53 AS were next on the field to prove who the better team was. While AMXS #2 started the game off with an early lead, the 53 AS quickly made up the deficit in the second half. The tournament ended quickly for the 53 AS after a controversial play late in the second half handed the ball back AMXS #2. AMXS #2 defeated the 53 AS 38-28.

The 314 MXS #1 and the 314 CES kicked off Tuesday’s double header at 6 p.m. Even with their commander on the sideline for support, the 314 CES was no match for the 314 MXS #1’s superior teamwork. The 314 MXS #1 easily defeated the 314 CES 33-7.

The 314 LRS and the 90th RRC finished of Tuesday’s games with the most heated games in the tournament. After the 314 LRS quarterback was removed from the game over an argument with the referee, Bryan Wails stepped up and sealed the 90th RRC’s fate. 314 LRS finished off the 90th RRC 28-14

On Wednesday, the 463 AG went on to face the AMXS #2 at 6 p.m., while the 314 MXS #1 faced the 314 LRS at 7 p.m. to see who would go on to the tournament finals on Thursday at 6 p.m.

Check back next week for the tournament wrap-up.
