The fifth annual Toy Drive Flag Football Tournament was a big success with 150 toys collected and even bigger for tournament organizer and Island Bred player/coach Antonio Guieb.

In addition to a successful toy drive and tournament, his team went undefeated on Saturday, Dec. 18, to take the title for a second consecutive year and now has now won four out of the past five years at the George Mira Football Field.

Each player from the five teams that took part in the double-elimination 5-on-5 event donated at least one toy, all of which went to the local Toys for Toys campaign.

In the championship game, Island Bred took a 33-13 win versus Conch House to complete their day unbeaten.
