BA vs. Dartmouth

Last Sunday, October 27th, the Bridgton Academy Wolverines took on Dartmouth Big Green in Memorial Stadium in Hannover, NH. Coming out strong, the young Wolverines capitalized on a Dartmouth fumble forced by Joey Eitner and quickly traveled down the field. Utilizing a balanced offensive attack, the Wolverines were first to score with a toss from quarterback Sam Oullette to Troy Pelletier. Returning the favor, Dartmouth then drove 68 yards after an interception to put six points on the board. Maintaining their composure, the Wolverines continued working and got a break when the Dartmouth fumbled a punt, which lead to a four-yard touchdown run by quarterback Sam Oullette, which extended the Bridgton lead to 13-6 going into halftime. Despite resiliency and physical play by the defense, including a forced fumble by Dan Cardillo and 10 tackles by Svenn Jacobson, the second half proved to be full of tough breaks for the Wolverines. A muffed punt, a red zone fumble, and interception for a touchdown proved to be too much for the Wolverines to overcome, losing by a final score of 34-13. Bridgton Academy plans to take what they have learned to their last Ivy League opponent when they face Brown University in Providence Rhode Island this Sunday November 3, at 1:00 pm.
