BY KRISSI HUMBARD — The city’s Finest took on the city’s Bravest in the annual charity flag football game on Nov. 18. Both teams fought hard to win the golden football.

The Finest, officers from the Hyattsville City Police Department (HCPD), went head to head with The Bravest, firefighters and EMTs from Hyattsville Volunteer Fire Department (HVFD), in the Seventh Annual Hyattsville Heroes Bowl. The Bravest came out hungry for the win. The score at the half: Bravest 27 – Finest 8. The Finest came back in the second half, bringing the score within one point. Ultimately, The Bravest took this year’s title. Final score: 27-26. This win puts the HVFD in the overall title lead, which is now: Bravest 4, Finest 3.

Residents braved the rain to watch the annual charity flag football game and cheer on our police officers and firefighters. The game benefits the Sonny Frazier Toy Drive, which hosts a party and distributes gifts for local children in need. Attendees to the game are asked to bring a new unwrapped toy or cash/check donation for the toy drive.

The tradition of the Heroes Bowl developed from Police Sgt. Pat O’Hagan’s idea to create more camaraderie between the police and fire departments.

Residents can still support the Sonny Frazier Toy Drive by dropping off a new, unwrapped toy at the collection center at the Hyattsville Municipal Building.
