    Hello league,

    Happy 2019! The season has gotten off to a great start; as of today, we no longer have any undefeated teams this year, so we certainly have a fun and competitive second half of the season upon us.

    With that in mind, I wanted to remind you each of a few things.

    1) This is a non-contact league for both defense and offense. We have had far too many injuries this season from absolutely unacceptable aggression, and it needs to stop immediately. Not only is defense tackling offensive players, but offensive players are plowing down the defense in order to get to the goal line. This is illegal on both sides of the field and will result in your ejection. We have some great Hong Kong-based tackle leagues, and if you feel like playing more aggressively, please do go join one of those teams instead.

    2) This is a friendly league. There has been far too much poor sportsmanship on our fields in the first half of the season. Volunteer referees are trying their best, and poor language and poor sportsmanship will not be tolerated. Get competitive and play to win, but by no means should you be taking out frustrations on the people who are helping you and this league to run smoothly. If you are not a captain of a team, please do not speak to the referees. Be respectful.

    See you all on the 27th!

    Best,

    Julia

    What a season! No teams coming in to the Winter Break are undefeated anymore, though Da Fat Club, Rogue Squadron, and Disco Ninjas are in a heated battle for that top spot.

    This week we saw the Free Agents take on Rogue Squadron, ultimately coming out under as Rogue Squadron put their best foot forward.

    In a particularly exciting game, The Flying Bills, one of the HKAFL's newest teams, took on the strong Ballhawks and left the night with their first win, only 1 point above the Ballhawks. This Flying Bills team came to win, and hopped up a spot in the standings.

    Finally, we had the Samurai Dragons take on the Lantau Buffaloes, another close and exciting game for the night. Ultimately it was the Lantau Buffaloes who came out with the win, but not for a lack of some great moves by the Dragons.

    The standings have shifted quite a bit this season, and we look forward to seeing how things shake out in early 2019. Have a nice holiday season and see you next year!

    Week 4 had two very strong teams, the Ballhawks and the Disco Ninjas, facing off against each other, ith the former coming out with the Win. Meanwhile the Free Agents got their first Loss of the season to the powerhouse Da Fat Club.

    Veteran teams the IcyHots and Mean Machine came out with wins against the newer teams Lost Boys and Lantay Buffaloes

    Teams are starting to settle into the standings, with the more veteran teams at the top and newer teams fighting to climb upwards. We'll see what happens throughout the rest of the season!

    Yesterday was week two of the flag football season, and two of our new teams squared off! The Flying Bills and Lantau Buffaloes took to the field Sunday night; though the Buffaloes came out with their first W of the season, The Flying Bills put up a good fight in their first HKAFL showing.

    Currently, the IcyHots and Da Fat Club are on top of our standings, both 2-0, but you never know what is going to happen in this league!

    The field is open for practice on 21 October at 9:30pm, and our next games are 28 October.

    Thank you to all who showed up for our tournament last weekend, helped organize and a big thank you to everyone who donated for a good cause.

    We raised a total of $2,700 through donations and through cake sales. Thanks to our awesome French chef for baking some amazing cakes.

    During the tournament there were a total of 68 touchdowns thrown, so the HKAFL will donate an additional $680.

    That adds up to a total of HKD $3,380 that will be donated to help those affected by the earthquakes in Nepal.


    Thank you everyone.
