The gentlemen get beat by Donkey Punch

BRECKENRIDGE – One team wanted to keep winning. One team hadn’t tasted success since it played in a rugby tournament six weeks ago. Both were playing flag football Tuesday evening at Breckenridge’s Kingdom Park.

The winners, Ullr’s/Donkey Punch, set out against a Commercial Specialists/Blue Goose team that have adopted the thuggish ways of rugby, but are, of course, gentleman. Settling into their position as “an easy win,” the gentleman skipped onto the field with a lighthearted nature to face a serious Donkey Punch lineup striving for discipline and consistency.

Led by quarterbacks Robb Margison and Iggy Lukasiewicz, Donkey Punch went about dismantling the Goose defense, while tightening its own defensive strategies. The Punch went on to win, 21-0.



After swapping a series of downs, Donkey Punch found its rhythm in the offensive form of Devon O’Neil. Margison hit O’Neil with a long pass to the end zone for the opening touchdown.

Chip Dunmon caught the extra point toss for a 7-0 lead.



The Goose started their offensive series from midfield with little success. O’Neil knocked down a pass for an incompletion. Then, the Donkey defense snuffed out any chance for a gain on a shuffle pass to DeLyser to bring up fourth down. After that, a turnover.

With the ball, Margison again turned to O’Neil on a screen pass, but the defensive skills of Nick Seidel halted the advance. Facing a long third down, Margison focused on Lukasiewicz, who emerged with the ball between two defenders and skipped into the end zone to lengthen the lead to 14-0.

Goose quarterback Todd Warner started his offense at his own 10-yard line. Under pressure, his pass was batted into the air by Rick Barnard and intercepted by O’Neil. Ullr’s was unable to capitalize on the turnover, however, despite a well-executed flea flicker between Margison and Barnard for a vital 10-yard gain.

The score at the break remained 14-0 in favor of Donkey Punch.

The slippery hands emerged for Ullr’s in the second half as three passes were dropped in the end zone. The first occurred in the opening drive, and led to a successful goal line stand for the Goose. The second and third came on Donkey Punch’s next possession, again within the red zone. It allowed another goal line stand by the improving Goose defense.

The offense for the Goose leaves something to be desired, however. Warner had as many balls intercepted or knocked down as were bobbled or caught, and the running game, despite the size of the front line, never quite lived up to its expectations.

To be fair, the Donkey Punch defense performed well and deserved the shutout. O’Neil’s interception return for a touchdown late in the game was a welcomed sight for Dunmon and his gang after the dropped balls didn’t allow the offense to score.

These teams will return for the fourth week of competition on Tuesday. Football fans of all persuasions should head out to Kingdom Park to see their local men in action.
