season and with a young team, it was really important to get the first one.” The Spartans came up big with a stop of the Broncos first drive on their own 6-yard line and then proceeded to march 94 yards down the field to score and take an early 6-0 lead. The Broncos could have imploded but were re-infused by a 65-yard Ryan Rule kickoff return (he amassed almost 200 yards on the day in kickoff returns) down to the Spartan 15 yard line. After a penalty backed the Broncos up to the Spartan 18 yard line, senior running back Tony Beaulieu ran it in from 18 yards out and tacked on the extra point for a 7-6 Bronco lead. Beaulieu again ran the ball into the endzone on a 42-yard run, and with the extra point, the Broncos found themselves ahead 14-6 at the half. The running game seemed to be working for the Broncos and according to Coach Nimblett, “It all began up front with the offensive line which did a great job blocking eight men in the box.” The offensive line is comprised of Ryan Bellerose, Rob Banister, Ben Emmons, Aaron Lavoie, John DeAngelo, Rob Albertine, and Kyle Manning.


In the second half, quarterback Josh Cohen punched the ball into the endzone on a 1 yard run and Ryan Rule scored the first of his two touchdowns as he returned an interception 25 yards to paydirt, bringing the score to 27-6 at the half. Following another Spartan touchdown, which narrowed the lead to 27-14, Ryan Rule scored on an 85-yard kickoff return for his second score of the night in the second half. Chase Clark, (9 yard run) and Brandon Rule (28 yard run), completed the scoring for the Broncos. Chase Clark led the Broncos with 117 yards on the ground

Broncos Grab Home Opener


submitted by Jim Tomaswick On Tuesday the Alvirne boys’ varsity soccer team held their home opener hosting Keene at Bronco Stadium in a very close and exciting game that came down to the final seconds to determine a winner. The two teams were evenly matched and did not give each other many scoring opportunities throughout the game. The stingy Bronco defense lead by seniors Zach Melanson and Tyler Lambert as well as juniors Michael DeMinico and Adam Chandonnet frustrated the Blackbird strikers the entire game and especially in the first half. The Bronco offense was equally frustrated with the limited looks they got in the first half but remained patient and stuck with the game plan. The first half ended in a 0-0 tie with both teams only getting one shot each on goal. The second half continued much the same with both teams trying to pick their opportunities to score. Keene tested senior goal keeper Jimmy Tomaswick (seven saves) with several good shots including a one-on-one and a point blank shot that the captain was able to successfully turn away. Alvirne’s offense picked up their intensity lead by the hustle play of senior Corey Landry and sophomore PJ Busnach. This play became contagious throughout the team that taking control of the pace of play mid way through the second half which junior Marcos Viera found an open Matt Poegel who ripped a shot on the Keene keeper who was able to make a nice diving save. The Broncos remained determined into the later part of the second half and their determination paid off. With the game clock under two minutes left in regulation, PJ Busnach made a solid pass to Corey Landry who took a couple of touches on the ball while shielding a Keene defenseman and

followed by Beaulieu with 70 rushing yards and 17 yards on a pass reception from Cohen. Beaulieu had 18 points on the day between his touchdowns and extra points. Brandon Rule had 50 yards and Kyle Manning finished with 35. Cohen and Kevin Sullivan shared the quarterback duties and went 2-3 in the air for 22 yards. According to Nimblett, the defense made some key stops but, “We had some breakdowns with tackling and assignments,” which they will work diligently to correct at practice this week. On defense Jacob Stevens stripped the ball and recovered a Pembroke fumble, while Ryan Bellerose and Ryan Rule also played well. The Broncos will have their first of many difficult Division 2 game on Friday, September 9, at Keene as they hope to keep their winning streak alive.
