BA Escapes with 34-27 Win

The Bridgton Academy Wolverines escaped victoriously this past Sunday with a 34-27 win against the Springfield Junior Varsity Football squad. Key plays were made across the board, including an amazing catch in the corner of the end zone by Brett Parenteau (Manchester, NH) with no time left on the clock in the second quarter, as well as John Moscotel’s (Lexington, MA) fumble recovery in the last minute of the game with Springfield inside Bridgton’s ten yard line. With many parents, faculty and students watching, the Wolverines did their best both offensively and defensively, scoring on the first drive of the game and continuing to match the Pride’s intensity—especially when they drove the field in the beginning of the third quarter, chewing up over twelve minutes of time. Melikke Van Alstyne (Salem, MA) and Phil Bigelow (East Orange, NY) had great games; both were key contributors to the victory. Last, but certainly not least, the offensive line had one of their best games to date. Coach Drew Inzer was caught after the game and had the following to say: “I felt the line played great as a unit, but we need to continue to get better this week. We have the biggest game of the year coming up and we need to be perfect.” The rest of the coaching staff agrees, as the Wolverines will head down to Rhode Island to play the Naval Academy Prep. School this week.
