OSAN AIR BASE, Republic of Korea -- The Team Osan flag football season came to an end Monday at the Osan American High School football field following an exciting season. The 607th Air and Space Communications Squadron was victorious after narrowly defeating the 51st Logistics Readiness Squadron #2 team 13 to 7.
In the first half, both teams had their game faces on, neither defense let the opposing offense score, though both teams came close several times.
As the second half started, both teams stayed strong, but about half way through the third quarter, Justin "No Cal" Kinnear was able to break through the LRS team's defense to score the first points of the game.
The LRS team wouldn't be outdone though. After they received the kickoff, they immediately drove down the field toward the goal where Zeke "The Bus" Suter put the LRS team on the board.
After a few more unsuccessful scoring attempts and near interceptions by both teams, Joseph "Sleeveless" Michael brought the score to 13-7, which is where it stayed after a failed conversion attempt by the ACOMS team.
The ball was then turned over to the LRS team with 27 seconds left on the clock, but two plays later and with 10 seconds less on the clock, the game ended when Kinnear intercepted a pass attempt.
"The game was pretty tough, both teams did well" said Thomas "Andsteel" Campos, the 607th ACOMS quarterback.
"This has been an all around tough season," said William Jackson, the base intramural sports director. "We have had several problems with rain and some safety issues with the playing fields."
He said mother nature wasn't the only thing that made the season difficult this year --all of the teams gave each other stiff competition.
"Up through week eight, we had four undefeated teams and even then there was a very close race with more than half the teams," Staff Sgt. Jackson said
Out of the 24 teams that started the season, only eight entered the playoffs.
