fourth quarter, but the spirit and energy of the entire Wolverines’ team was evident throughout the contest. The Knights were a strong team, but the forceful efforts of everyone including Aidon Arinelo, Jacob George, Joseph Hero, Cole Peterson and Christian Spinazola contributed to the win. Nolan Paquette and Braydan DeCotis also played exceptional defense. Richard (Rocky) Heres woke up the crowds early in the fourth quarter with a touch down and Westin Lippold made a great catch for the extra point. Tyler Mueller then had a big fumble recovery to keep the ball in the hands of the Wolverines. Curtis Shattuck helped seal the win by bolting down the field for another TD with just three minutes remaining. Head coach Scott Mueller commented, “The

submitted by Jon MacLean, Windham Wolverine Youth Football Youth and Cheer It was another great weekend for Wolverines’ football. The three Windham youth football teams fought hard and came away with two victories this past Sunday. The first game of the day was played on the road in Keene. The second and third grade combined Wolverines’ team got the early wake up call and played at 8 a.m. against the Knights. The game remained scoreless until early in the


players battled hard in the trenches all day. The team continues to play solid defense and played very well against a tough team. We are very proud of their effort and determination.” The final score: 13-0. The second game of the day was played at home on the Windham High School field. The Wolverines’ fourth and fifth grade team matched up against Londonderry’s fifth grade Wildcats. Although Londonderry was first on the scoreboard midway through the first quarter, the Wolverines kept their composure. Thomas Hebert, Zack Kurgen, Cameron Burns, Hunter Delaney and CJ Giardino made some big tackles early on. At the tail end of the quarter, Jonny “Mac” MacLean stripped the ball from a Wildcat running back and ended up with it putting a stop to a Londonderry drive. The Wildcats, however, would get the ball back and score again making it 14-0. The Wolverines would strike back. QB MacLean made several impressive moves and reversed field with a blazing 42-yard TD run. Delaney then busted into the end zone with a run up the middle for the extra point. JP Palleria and Thomas Cortese kept Londonderry off the scoreboard for the rest of the half with outstanding tackling. The score at half time was 14-7. The second half was action packed. Windham’s Jack Potter, Bobby Dicicco,


Matt Logue and Aaron Goulet showed off their defensive skills by racking up a bunch of tackles. However, the Wildcats would score on a 45- yard punt return and their QB ran in another TD early in the fourth quarter. The Wolverines kept battling. Hebert took Windham’s attack to the air. He took the snap, rolled out and hit Robby Furman for an exciting 60-yard touchdown pass play. MacLean ran a sweep down the sideline for the conversion. The Szostak brothers, Dylan and Stephen put some big hits on the Wildcat running- backs and Jacob Wallace and Luke Schramm came up with tackles in the Londonderry backfield keeping their opponents out of the end zone for the rest of the game. “We, as coaches, were very pleased with the performance of all the players this week,” said Brian Turner, head coach of the Wolverines’ fourth and fifth grade team. He continued, “We are getting better on both sides of the ball. We will continue to practice hard and keep a positive attitude.” The final score: Wildcats 27, Wolverines 14. The sixth grade Wolverines took on the Monadnock Mountaineers at home for the final game of the day. The first score of the game was set up by Collin Peterson’s fumble recovery at the Mountaineers’ 30-yard line. RB Jack Swarbrick then broke a couple of tackles to get the ball down to the 15. Max Faro took it from there slicing through Monadnock’s defense for a 15- yard touchdown run. QB Jake Byers tossed the ball to a diving Nolan Cunningham for the extra point. The Mountaineers didn’t have the ball long on their next possession. Tommy Costa picked off a pass at the Monadnock 33-yard line and ran it deep into enemy territory. Byers, helped out by great blocking from Matt Dodge and Thomas Splagounias, hit Faro in the end zone with a 15- yard touchdown pass. Swarbrick ran the ball in for the conversion. Joe Dunalp, Brian Murdza and Zach Cunha played phenomenal defense in the first two quarters and the Wolverines were up 14-0 at the half. Windham was on a mission in the second half. Swarbrick blocked a punt and recovered it at the

Mountaineer 10-yard line midway through the third quarter. A couple plays later, Byers found Faro again for his third touchdown of the game. On the other side of the ball, the Wolverines’ defense was true to form. Zack German increased his personal defensive stats by managing to string together three straight tackles. Jake Aleksa made a touchdown saving tackle late in the game on the Windham 14-yard line to help cement the shutout.


During a post-game interview, Kyle McInnis,


Wolverines’ football director and head coach said “The sixth grade team continues to develop into a well-rounded team that can score multiple ways on offense and is backed by tough defense.” Final Score: Wolverines 20, Mountaineers 0.
