The Flagler Falcons, a Flagler PAL Junior Pee Wee football team, have been dominant all season.
However, the Falcons had to overcome some adversity Saturday, Oct. 29, in order to keep their season alive.
In the East Coast Conference Championship game Saturday, the Falcons trailed 20-8 at halftime. In the second half, the Falcons scored 13 unanswered points, rallying to win 21-20, over the Port Orange Hawks.
Coach Korey Kasch said his team’s resiliency was impressive. The Falcons improved to 11-0 on the season with the win.
“This is the first time they have been down all year, and they really picked each other up,” Kasch said. “They believed we just wouldn’t lose. I have a great coaching staff who made the necessary adjustments as well.”
The Falcons now move on to the first round of regionals. They will place Venice, who were the Peace River Conference champions, Saturday, Nov. 5, at Deltona High School.
