CHARLESTON AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. — Three touchdown passes and two field goals from Outlaws quarterback Brandon Barnes led to victory for the 437th Civil Engineer Squadron Outlaws over the 437 CES Firedogs for the base flag football championship Monday.

The bitter rivalry between the two civil engineering football teams culminated with the Outlaws coming out on top 26-14. Derrick Sochor, Outlaws receiver, caught two of Barnes' touchdown passes and James McFarland caught another which proved to be too much for the Firedogs to overcome.

"This is the best group of athletes I have ever played with," said Dustin Rose, Outlaws coach.

The Firedogs quarterback Kevin Boxberger tossed two touchdown passes -- one to Neil French and another to Timothy Flannigan. Two point-after-touchdown kicks by Gregory Lacquement accounted for their 14 points.

"For a small squadron we did well," said John Hearn, Firedogs coach. "Our hats are off to the Outlaws for a well-played game."
