This week’s game between the Silvestri Carpet Javelins and the Ralph Giordano F. H. Saints was one of the hardest games fought so far, as the Saints prevailed 8 to 0. The game remained scoreless for the first half with the Saints and Javelins defenses holding each other at bay. As has been the case this season for the Saints Paget Bramble, Justin Mogg, Elijah Alamo and Sean Sonnemann of the defensive line kept the Javelins from running up the middle forcing them to run to the sides where they were stopped by the work of Zamuki Colon, Jose Detres, Josh Nugent, David Rivas-Torres and Jeremy Vega. Adding their speed and strength were Michael Lynch and Kevin Payano. The second half saw the Saints offense make some changes in the line which resulted in a successful touchdown run by Vega. On the defensive side in the second half two key tackles were made by Stephen Ramos causing the Javelins to lose ground. A third game clinching defensive tackle was made by Rivas-Torres when he caught the Javelins flanker in the end zone resulting in a safety. After a shaky first half, the Saints once again came out with their best game to outdo their record of an undefeated season. The Javelins defense also had a great game holding the high power Saints to only one touchdown. Angel Arroyo had two sacks while Jonathan Cardona, Carlos Flores, Nelson Rivera and Jayson Ramos made some great tackles all game long to keep the Javelins in the game until the last minute safety. The Javelins had only one good offensive drive that ended with a fumble on the Saints 10 yard line.
The game between the McNulty F. H. Rams and Paddy Doherty’s Black Knights ended with the Rams on top 6 to 0.
Pop Warner Teams
The Kaseman Chiropractic Peewee Warriors moved to phase two of their season on Sunday 10/25 when they squared off against the Pride Lions of Brooklyn to open up the playoffs. As has been the case all season the Warriors got a balanced effort from both the offense and defense in their 26-0 victory. The defense recorded its 5th shutout and limited the Lions to three first downs while displaying the hard hitting style that it has become known for. Caesar Holcomb was once again the catalyst as he was everywhere. Edwin Webber and Angel Aponte did a great job in pass coverage while Donvito Kuinlan played linebacker, defensive line and anchored the offensive line in an ironman performance. That offensive line in addition to great blocking by split end Joey Alba allowed tailback Shane Cherry to have a career day as he found the end-zone four times for touchdowns. His scoring runs came from 63, 20, and 12 yards as well as a TD reception of 40 yards. All in all he had 151 yards of total offense and was a force all afternoon. Quarterback James Werner had another good day as he threw for 117 yards and a TD. The game was sealed on a late interception by outside linebacker DJ Cassidy which put the Warriors in the championship game on November 2.
