Last Friday the West Yellowstone Recreation Department finished its first week of flag football.

Ages of participants range from kindergarten through fifth grade, including both boys and girls.

The non-contact nature of the game, a player is ruled down when an opposing player pulls one of the flags from his or her belt, makes it an ideal choice for younger kids and those not interested in donning a full suit of pads.

The league is made up of four teams, and the standings after one week of play are as follows:

The Bears, coached by Cory Sasser and Ryan Skinner, are tied for first place with the Chad Ridenhour's Patriots. Both teams have two wins and one loss. Bob Peppler's Seahawks and Todd Stiles' Broncos, meanwhile, are tied for second place, each with one win and two losses.

Seahawk Herman Vazquez has scored two touchdowns, Patriot Braden Loomis has five and Matthew Burden of the Bears leads all players with six touchdowns.

"We have about 35 kids, some are very small and young, but they are having fun. We are fortunate to have coaches and a referee who are patient and understanding. All in all the program has been very successful," West Yellowstone recreation director Brandy Holland said.
