Scoring heated up in the second quarter, as did defensive pressure. Above, Michael Spear (No. 13) of the Flamethrowers lays-out to defend Nathan Bridges (No. 19) of the Growlers. The Flamethrowers now hold a lofty 10-3 record and are playoff bound.

The dive of the day was by Greg Cohen (No. 18) of the Flamethrowers as he laid-out to catch the disc. His momentum carried him out of the end zone and into a tripod and camera capturing the action, all the while hanging onto the disc for the score.
SanFranciscoFlameThrowers
Flames - 6-26-16 - Ron Sellers
Arguably the play of the day was by Bob Madden (No. 23) of the Flamethrowers as he made a leaping catch out of the back of the end zone, only to flip it behind him so Byron Liu (not pictured) could make a catch for the score. To view a photo album,
