PORTAGE | If touchdowns come easier in flag football, the PAT kicks sure don't.
After Untouchables quarterback Zack Wellsand connected with fellow former Chesterton star Bevan Coulopoulos in the corner of the end zone during the waning moments of the first half against Team 205 for the Northwest Indiana Flag Football League upper division championship June 15 at Portage High School, the team decided to go for two for an even 14-0 lead.
That meant kicking a 30-yard conversion -- the same type the pros attempt after a holding penalty.
Wellsand, now kicking, was able to get the ball through a fierce 205 rush and just over the crossbar. With a previous TD by Anthony Curry, the advantage was more than enough for the Untouchables to protect in the second half as they prevailed 14-6.
The two teams met in the regular season with Team 205 coming out on top 26-6.
"We didn't have all our guys for that game," Untouchable Bennett Coulopoulos said. "And they (205) played very good that day. They also played good today, but so did we."
The Untouchables were able to keep 205's explosive offense off the field with their time-consuming rollout-and-hook-pattern attack. But on 205's first play from scrimmage in the second half, quarterback Brian Sheard rambled up field behind a posse of seek-and-destroy blockers before pitching the ball rugby style to a teammate trailing the play along the sidelines. That resulted in a 70-yard TD, but 205's ensuing conversion attempt failed.
Still, 205 was within striking distance, especially with Sheard's legs and arm as weapons.
"I can throw it around 65 yards," said Sheard, a former Thornridge player.
More like 70.
With under three minutes remaining in regulation, Sheard let loose from his own 15 and hit a receiver in stride at about the Untouchables' 15. Alas, the ball was dropped and Sheard was intercepted the next play.
The Untouchables and Team 205 were two of three upper division teams that finished with a 6-2 record. By virtue of defensive points allowed, Team 205 was the regular-season champs and No. 1 seed for the playoffs.
Repeat champs Orange Krush were denied a "three-peat" when 205 stopped them in the semis 12-11.
"They (205) are always in the championship game, but they haven't pulled it through yet," said league president Aaron Braham of the Chicago-based team.
As for the Untouchables ...
"They play in tournaments across the country and are the 13th ranked team in Class C (in the United State Flag and Touch Football League -- USFTL)," Braham said.
Earlier in the lower division final, the Wild Stallions defeated the Bobcats 12-6.

ORANGE KRUSH WIN SPRING 8v8 OUTDOOR
LAKE STATION | The Lake County Flag Football League's spring 2007 session ended in white hot fashion.
The championship game played at Lake Station’s Four Winds Park last Sunday was a hotly contested event between the Orange Krush and Team 205 played in nearly 100-degree temperatures.
The heat may have caused some of the players' emotions to boil. Both teams adamantly contested calls made by officials, and often were involved in nose-to-nose confrontations with each other.
Earlier, the teams scored a combined 60 points in convincing semifinal shutouts. But the championship remained scoreless through the first half and well into the second.
With only two minutes left in regulation, Orange Krush quarterback Aaron Kratochvil completed a 40-yard pass to receiver Larry Tatchik for the only touchdown in a 6-0 final.
Despite the contentious battle, Orange Krush lineman Mike Brown maintained a lot of respect for Team 205’s ability on the field.
"They are really good," Brown said of Team 205, based in Alsip. "They have won a lot of leagues in Illinois."
But not on Sunday.
After the tough loss, a Team 205 member took the second-place trophy and smashed it against a fence post.
Orange Krush also got a trophy, as well as a paid berth for the Metro Competitor Flag Football Union Tournament to be held in Las Vegas this winter.
In the semifinals, Orange Krush -- with players from Lake and Porter County -- defeated The Playground Legends, 32-0. Team 205 beat The Blue Ballers, 28-0, in its semifinal win.
"These are pretty competitive teams," said Aaron Branham, founder and commissioner of the league, while the tournament was still in progress. "And they're being tested with it being so hot."
What a better way to prepare for Las Vegas?
