West Melbourne Aiming To Make History
BREVARD COUNTY • WEST MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – As youth football nears the midway point of the 2012 season in Brevard County, several things are becoming apparent.
The first fact is that West Melbourne has an incredibly strong program — maybe one of the best group of teams of all-time — and they will be hard to stop not only in division races, but also may go deep into the playoffs.
In all seven tackle football divisions, West Melbourne teams lead or are tied at the top of the standings and more importantly, have racked up an astounding record of 35-0 in games so far.
What that means is that every West Melbourne youth football team is undefeated through the first five games of the year and they have outscored the opposition in those contests by a combined score of 1,202 to 171. That’s an average of 34.3 points per game for each West Melbourne team while only surrendering an average of 4.8 points per game.
If not for touchdowns given up in Week 3 against Sebastian and in Week 4 against Melbourne, West Melbourne’s Mighty Mites division squad would be unscored upon for the entire season.
Few programs in the 40-year history of the league have ever been so dominant through the five first games of the season.
A key test for West Melbourne will take place in the final week of the regular season Oct. 20 against the Palm Bay Pirates.
Palm Bay’s Mighty Mites, Juniors and Seniors division teams also are undefeated and tied with West Melbourne for the division lead in the Brevard County Youth Football and Cheerleading Association’s South Conference in those divisions.
Week 6 of the season will be played this Saturday with Sebastian traveling to Palm Bay, Port St. John at Merritt Island, Melbourne visiting South Beach, Titusville at Rockledge and Suntree/Viera at West Melbourne. Bayside has a bye week.
