LUKE AIR FORCE BASE, Ariz. -- The 56th Equipment Maintenance Squadron aircrew ground equipment team and the 607th Civil Engineer Squadron stepped on the field Sep. 22 for an intramural football match at Luke Air Force Base. 56 EMS/AGE defeated the 607th ACS 21-14.

The 56th Equipment Maintenance Squadron aircrew ground equipment team came in the game determined to win as they were the first to score bringing the score to 6-0 with 14 minutes left in the first half.  ACS wasn't going down without a fight as they also scored with 10 minutes left in the first half 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 get the ball down the field with short passes."

The second half of the game started well for EMS/AGE, as they were the first to score bringing the score to 20-7. EMS/AGE was playing heavy defense throughout the second half, but it wasn't enough to stop 607th ACS from reaching the end zone as they scored to bring the score to 20-14 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 Senior Airman Benjamin Bright, 56th EMS quarterback. "We kept the ball away from them most of the game and we used the play clock to our advantage and were able to take the victory."
