Hudson~Litchfield News First Victory for Bronco Football
by Sue LaRoche On Saturday, October 16, the Broncos played Division III Pelham in fierce winds, and came away with a 14-12 victory. It was a well-played game by both squads, with the Broncos doing all of their scoring in the first half and the Pythons in the second half, and a missed extra point attempt by Pelham turned out to be the difference in the game. Alvirne scored on the first play from scrimmage when Sean Sipsey on an end-around scampered 76 yards to put the Broncos on top, 6-0. Tony Beaulieu added the extra point for a 7-0 lead. Pelham’s next possession resulted in a punt, which was partially blocked, giving the Broncos the ball on Pelham’s side of the field. Jesse Horne ran three times for 31 yards, and Sipsey took it in from the five-yard line for his second score of the day and a Bronco 13-0 lead. Again, Beaulieu tacked on the extra point for a 14-0 lead, which Alvirne took into halftime.
At 2:09 of the third quarter, on its second possession, Pelham scored on a 39-yard touchdown pass, but a poor snap on the point after attempt left the score at 14-6. In the final quarter, Pelham recovered an Alvirne fumble, but could not convert on a fourth and 15 when Jon Baldwin intercepted to give the Broncos the ball back with 6:28 to play. Alvirne could not pick up a first down, and turned the ball over on downs. Pelham’s offense then took to the air and moved the ball down the field. The Pelham quarterback then took the ball the final 13 yards to paydirt, narrowing the gap to 14-12. With :57 seconds remaining, a two-point conversion was stuffed by Baldwin, giving the Broncos a 14-12 win. Sipsey had 76 yards and two touchdowns, followed by Baldwin with
81 yards rushing, Horne with 20 yards, and Alex Bryan with 15 yards. Dan Connolly had 11 tackles, followed by Baldwin with nine and Adam Bellerose and Adam Bower with eight apiece. The Broncos hope to keep the momentum
going when they travel to Spaulding on Friday, October 22. Their final two home games will be on Friday, October 29, against Bishop Guertin, and Friday, November 5, against Manchester West.
