When a few hundred kids from the YMCA's flag football game showed up Saturday at Valley Stadium, every one of them was prepared to win.
And all of them did.
Saturday was the Bowl Day for dozens of teams across the Des Moines area Ys, including Waukee, South Suburban, John R. Grubb, and Walnut Creek.
In keeping with the YMCA's motto -- Everybody Plays, Everybody Wins -- all the players received trophies, and all the players had their names announced over the stadium's speakers.
