The 56th Equipment Maintenance Squadron Aircrew Ground Equipment team and the 607th Air Control Squadron stepped on the field Sept. 24 for an intramural football match at Luke Air Force Base. EMS/AGE defeated the 607th ACS 21-14.

The EMS/AGE team came into the game determined to win and were the first to score with 14 minutes left in the first half. ACS wasn’t going down without a fight as they also scored with 10 minutes left brining the score to 6-7. It looked as though it would be a close game, but EMS/AGE was determined to win, as they scored again to end the first half with the score of 13-7.

“Make our catches was our game plan,” said WG-05 Rafael Lopez, 56th EMS. “We tried not to do too many long passes but just got the ball down the field with short passes.”

The second half of the game started well for EMS/AGE, as they were once again the first to score bringing the score to 21-7. EMS/AGE was playing heavy defense throughout the second half, but it wasn’t enough to stop ACS from reaching the end zone as they scored to bring the score to 21-14 with five minutes left in the second half. ACS was determined to tie up the game, but was denied when EMS/AGE defenders continued to display their heavy defense, ending the game before ACS could score again.

“We definitely played well,” said Benjamin Bright, 56th EMS quarterback. “We kept the ball away from them most of the game, used the play clock to our advantage and were able to take the victory.”
