This week in intramural sports, new sports commenced, mid-season sports intensified, and champions were crowned… UMass Boston style. An epic battle on the gridiron decided the fate of No Fly Zone and BIG BALLER BRAND. No Fly Zone took the win in the end, but both teams left everything on the field in the match-up. No Fly Zone’s captain, Danny Seng, was the glue that kept the team together, as he kept communication lively on the field. Tyson Tembo showed off his skills as QB and was a great leader on the field. He also had some great receivers and blockers to work with, such as Quentin Bethea, Odson J Chris, Ralph Francesconi, Marcus Hopkins, Marino Long-Mella, and Montez Paschall, who all plunged the team to victory. The game was impeccably officiated by Intramural Director Shane Conti, Intramural supervisor Bergomi Francois, and one of UMass Boston Intramural’s newest members, Jonathan Hodge. If you see any of No Fly Zone team members walking around on campus, be sure to congratulate them. They should be easy to spot in their UMass Boston Intramural Champion Swag.
