Football Wins Again

The football team traveled to Curry College this weekend to face off against the Colonels and walked away with a 40-6 victory. Bridgton opened the game with a bang with a 60 yard reception from quarterback Steven Cronan (Hampton, NH) to Austin Harrington (Chanhassen, MN). On the second play of the game, Bridgton was on the board with a reception from Cronan to Seth Sheridan (Ashburnham, MA) and was in control for the rest of the game allowing only one touchdown in the second half. Sheridan was the big target this game catching a total of three touchdowns. To open the second quarter, Will Luks (Amherst, NH) and Derek Beck (Martinsville, NJ) connected, continuing the air assault, on a 42 yard touchdown reception. The next possession was much the same as Bobby Kaslander (Verona, NJ) hauled in a 50 yard flee flicker which set up a powerful 12 yard run by Josh Morales (Mount Sinai, NY) for the touchdown. Sheridan in the 3rd quarter with Mitch Graziano (Kingston, MA) at the helm caught 2 more passes for over twenty yards and another touchdown to cap off his day.

The offiensive line was in fine shape again allowing the trio of quarterbacks to do their work with little or no pressure. John Higgins (Cumberland, ME), George Benakis (Ontario, Can), Jared Anderson (East Longmeadow, MA), Ben Schmidt (Wakefield, MA), Brandon Johnson (Wakefield, MA), James Aloisio (Middleton, MA), and Ryan Mrozek (Shelton, CT) all held the the wall.

On defense, Bridgton had a solid day keeping Curry out of the endzone until well into the 2nd half.

Next week the level of competition goes way up as Bridgton Academy goes down to Worcester, MA to face off against Holy Cross, the first I-AA opponent of the year. "Another great win, but will have to play cleaner in all aspects of the game going into Next week against Holy Cross. We have to continue to improve and have a great week of practice." says Coach Marcella.
