Wolverines fall to Columbia JV in OT 16-13

The Bridgton Academy Wolverines dropped a close one this past Friday to Columbia's Junior Varsity squad, 16-13 in overtime. After a long bus ride Thursday afternoon, followed by a two hour drive into New York City, the football squad appeared tired in the first quarter. Though the defense let up a few big plays and the offense stumbled in the first quarter, the team quickly got things together. With ten minutes left in the second quarter, Pat Daley came screaming off the edge sacking the quarterback, forcing him to fumble. James Shaw was there to recover the ball. A few plays later Buddy Leathley found his way into the end zone from five yards out. Up 7-0, with only 1:03 to play in the half, Buddy Leathley found Shane Ferguson in the middle of the end zone for the Wolverine's second score of the day. Unfortunately, the 13-0 halftime lead would not last. Columbia tied the game in the fourth quarter and won the game in overtime on a 47 yard field goal. The football team will be headed down to Brown University this Sunday to play their Junior Varsity squad at one o'clock.
