REGION — The Jr. Pee Wee Outlaws dominated with experience and toughness to post a 31-0 win over a bigger but less experienced North County Panthers team. After breaking out into a 12-0 halftime lead, the Outlaws’ silver offense, led by quarterback Nate Diegnan, punched the ball across the goal line for three more touchdowns as they maintained momentum throughout the game.
The offensive line provided all the holes needed for a powerful stable of backs. Corey Carlton, a standout on defense, ran the ball like a bulldozer at fullback, leaving Panthers players hanging on for the ride. Josh Cushion and Tom Bavis showed their stuff with consistent, strong runs. Veteran players Billy Wilson, Matt Russell and Drew Kanan provided their usual leadership, while Mack Flynn, Byran Croteau, Ben Ferro, Dana Cormier and Troy Jenkins all contributed to a great defensive effort by the Outlaws.
The Pee Wee Wranglers scored with 30 seconds remaining to beat the Wachusett Mountaineers 7-0 and keep their playoff hopes alive. Despite a dominating performance by the Wrangler line of Bryan Giblin, Michael Manzi, Matt Brooks, Matt Morash, Kyle Dunbar, Joe Dolciotto, Corey Decot, Andrew Funk, Jake Riggert, Michael Hegger and Nick Morash, it took a well-executed two-minute offensive drive led by quarterback Mike Beliveau for halfback Brian Magee to connect on a 20-yard option pass with Dylan Lombardi to clinch the victory. The defense completely stymied the Mountaineers, with stand-outs Matt Grant, Brody Smith, Mark Willis, Jim Carver, Mike Leonardo, Jake Knox, Spencer Lyons, Aaron Bourne, Adam Hooper, Ken Rutledge, Chris Tucker, Daegan Gray, and Derek Tocio leading the effort.
