Richmond Hill flag football team makes grand opening

Wildcats flag football players listen intently to coach Tony Dragon during the team's debut, a 26-6 victory over Effingham County on Nov. 5 at Henderson Park in Richmond Hill.

To say Richmond Hill’s girls flag football team’s debut was successful might be a bit of an understatement.

Nervous energy abounded on the Wildcats sidelines they awaited the start of their game with Effingham County on Nov. 5 at Henderson Park.

It didn’t take long for the nervousness to vanish, and once it did, it was all Richmond Hill as the Wildcats used the play of quarterback Lucy Tuttle and running back Kayla Jackson to beat the Rebels 26-6 before the nearly packed stands.

Tuttle, a starting outfielder on the softball team where she’s known for having a strong, accurate arm, put it on display as she completed 8 of 17 passes for 76 yards, which opened up the running game.

Jackson, who also plays soccer, ran for 105 yards including touchdown runs of 30 and 68 yards. Alena Masis scored the first touchdown of the game when she went 47 yards on a trick play head coach Tony Dragon dusted off from his days as an assistant coach at Benedictine.
