ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam -- The 36th Security Forces Squadron won the 2015 intramural flag football championship game for the second year in a row April 20 against the 644th Combat Communications Squadron with the final score of 14-0.

Two games were played for the championship as the 36th SFS lost a game earlier in the playoffs to the 644th CBCS. To win the championship they needed to beat the 644th CBCS not once, but twice.

"It felt great not only for me, but also for the players who left it all on the field last night," said Scottie Boyd, 36th SFS's coach and team captain. "It's very hard to repeat as champions at any level of sport and to be able to raise the championship trophy again was an amazing feeling."

The flag football season lasted from Jan. 21 through April 20. Due to weather complications and teams having to forfeit the season, only seven games were officially played by each team during the season.

The 36th SFS's road to the championship game was not an easy one. In the first round, they beat the eighth seeded 36th Force Support Squadron. Their next matchup was against the 644th CBCS, which they ended up losing, sending them to the "loser's" bracket to fight for another chance at the championship game.

In the first game of the "loser's" bracket, the 36th SFS beat the 36th Logistics Readiness Squadron. After the win, they played two more hard fought games against the 554th REDHORSE Squadron and 736th SFS, winning them both.

Boyd stated teamwork was a major component to their success. He uses TEAM as an acronym for "together everyone always matters."

"Every member of a team has to trust the person next to them in order to succeed at all levels," he added.

The wins against 554th RHS and 736th SFS put the 36th SFS as the number one seed of the "loser's" bracket. The championship game consisted of the team who went undefeated in the playoffs versus the top seeded one-loss team.

"The competition this year was very competitive and tough during the season and championship game especially when we faced 644th CBCS," Boyd said. "For the past two seasons, 644th CBCS has played us tough and it was no different this year."

During the championship games, the 36th SFS won the first game 19-6 and the second game 14-0, declaring them flag football champions.

"We suffered our first loss during the post season to 644th CBCS, which forced us to fight our way out of the loser's bracket," Boyd said. "My hat is definitely off to 644th CBCS players for playing through the final whistle of the championship game.  Also, they demonstrated outstanding class after defeat."

For those interested in participating in intramural sports, Andersen Air Force Base offers basketball, softball, soccer and volleyball. The next intramural sport season is softball beginning May 4, 2015.

"Participating in intramural sports is good for moral and esprit de corps," said Steven Jackson, 36th FSS sports director.
