Calvary Day flag football to play for state title in inaugural season

When the inaugural season of girls flag football started in October, Calvary Day coach Chad Griffin was focused on generating interest in the sport and encouraging his girls to have fun.

The players have definitely enjoyed the ride as the last leg of their season-long journey will take them to Atlanta on Monday to play in the state title game.

Calvary punched its ticket to the Class 1A-5A finals on Wednesday as the Cavs beat Northside-Columbus 14-12 at the Home Depot Backyard at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. The Cavs improved to 6-0-2 on the year and will face Portal on Monday at noon at Center Parc Stadium.

“When we first started, I didn’t know what to expect,” Griffin said. “We just wanted to do something different and the girls really bought into it. We have coaches, like Nick Grassi, who know flag football so well. They have taught the girls the game, and now we’re playing with a lot of confidence.”

Calvary led 7-0 at intermission after Mahkayla Premo went in motion and took a direct snap, turning it into a 6-yard scoring run. Premo took a pitch and connected with Emma Crosby for the extra point.
