Football Blows Past Springfield in Home Opener!

The football team started their season this Sunday with a physical 54-6 win against the Pride of Springfield College. Though working out some opening game jitters the Wolverines came out firing and continued for the entire game. Six different players scored for a total of seven touchdowns for Bridgton Academy. Derek Beck, Robert Kaslander, and Austin Harrington combined for four BA passing touchdowns. Stephan Cronan also had a five yard run count for six points. Even the defense was involved in the scoring with an interception return for a touchdown by Taren Collier and a fumble, forced by Connor McAleney, created a return for a touchdown by Karlos Locke. The defense was solid all game forcing consistent pressure in the backfield and creating great coverage in the secondary. In all, 12 different offensive players made receptions or ran the ball and every player on the BA squad got playing time. Though excited for his team, Coach Marcella kept his eyes forward with his comments after the game. He simply said “A great way to start, but a long way to go.”
