Football Rolls Over Dartmouth J.V.

Bridgton Academy went to Hanover, NH to take on the Dartmouth College Big Green. The final score was 39-30 with Bridgton Academy grabbing the wild win securing a winning season for the 2010 football season.

The Bridgton running attack seemed to be no match for Dartmouth led by Hunter Beckmann (Shrewsbury, MA) who had 13 rushes for 102-yards and a touchdown. Jacob Grills (Niantic, CT) also led the pack with 14 rushes for 92-yards and two touchdowns. He also threw for 133-yards and his third touchdown of the day. Julian Griffin (New Rochelle, NY) had 32-yards rushing and a touchdown. Daryl Shuler (Peekskill, NY) added 47-yards rushing and a touchdown while Marcus Hackett (Montclair, NJ) had two catches for 82-yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, the Wolverines forced five turnovers including three fumbles recovered and two interceptions, one coming in the last two minutes of the game to secure the win. Defensive Back Charlie Bates (Reading, MA) came up huge in big situations, namely when he grabbed an interception to secure the win for the Wolverines. Parrish Rogers-Reed (Westfield, MA) had 19 total tackles for the day, 10 of which were solo. Connor Candito (Shrewsbury, MA) also tallied 12 tackles, a fumble recovery, and an interception.

With a short week of preparation, Bridgton will be looking to end their season on top when they face Columbia University on Friday, November 12th at 2pm.
