Chargers impress as Caballero, Cifuentes and Arano shine

Needing just one more victory to secure their spot in the JCC of Bayonne Indoor Flag Football Sr. Division “Championship” game, the (8-0) Chargers took on the (4-4) Bengals for a week 7 showdown. Starting quickly, the Chargers took a 14-0 lead as Kyle Arano (1 TD, 2 expts) and Aaliyana Cifuentes (1 TD) found the endzone. The Bengals cut the Chargers advantage to 14-6 as Mike Piscopo rumbled in from 10 yards out for a TD. Like a lava flow the Chargers’ offense got red hot and torched the court for 38 unanswered points as Alejandro Cifuentes (2 TDs, 4 expts), Christopher Caballero (3 TDs), and Kyle Arano (4 expts) helped the Chargers mount a 52-6 advantage. Unable to gain a foothold, the Bengals continued to make big plays from time to time with Chris Ballance, David Matos, Mariam Rasslan, and Anthony Baez giving it their all but they could not cash in. Finally with less than twenty seconds remaining Mike Piscopo notched his second TD of the bout but the die was cast as the Chargers rolled to a 52-12 win.
