Campbell High closed out their 2011 season with a road game against the 6-2 Windham squad. On Saturday, October 29, just hours before the area was painted white with an untimely nor’easter, the struggling Cougar defense faced the unenviable task of taking on the Jaguar’s high octane offense. The Jags used nearly 400 yards of rushing offense to celebrate their senior night while ending Campbell’s season on a sour note, 31-14. On the field during pre-game warm-ups, head
coach Marc Prindiville noted that his team was just going to come at them, implying that the Cougars would, as they say, leave it all on the field. A few moments later, Campbell showed some explosive offense of its own, taking the opening kickoff and marching 64 yards in 11 plays. The drive ended with quarterback Dan Driscoll hitting wide out Jesiah Wade on an eleven yard touchdown toss, capping off the five minute possession. However, five minutes later, Windham took the lead for good at 7-6 on a 14 yard TD run by CJ DiPrimaand successful PAT by Ben Shipman. Windham’s first drive of the second quarter saw
QB Joey Lorenz connect with receiver Kenny Padin on a four yard score, upping the lead to 14-6, with only 80 seconds elapsed on the clock. The Jags recorded their third unanswered score of the half when running back DiPrima scored the second of his three touchdowns on the day. The small but tough Jag back, who finished the game with 196 yards rushing, ran in from 16 yards out, putting his team up by the score of 21-6. Campbell cut into the Jag lead just before the end of the half. Cougar fullback John Houston powered his way through the line of scrimmage then coasted into the end zone, finishing off the 23 yard run. Driscoll connected with Jesiah Wade for the two point conversion, bringing Campbell within seven, at 21-14, before the two teams ran to the locker rooms, escaping the biting wind and chilling temps.
As the second half began, one could feel the wind pick up and the temperatures drop as the impending snowfall was approaching. On the Jag’s fourth play of the third quarter, Campbell’s Dylan Andrews stripped the ball from the grip of Windham running back DiPrima with teammate Chris McCarthy recovering the fumble. The Cougars proceeded to move the pigskin to the opponent’s 18 yard line, showing promise of tying the score in front of the faithful Campbell fans who braved the weather to attend the game. Unfortunately, a fourth down Driscoll pass fell incomplete, stalling
the drive and turning the ball over to Windham on downs. One play later, CJ DiPrima added to his statistically studded afternoon, as he took the hand-off, swept outside to the right and raced down the sideline for a demoralizing 82 yard touchdown run. The 28-14 score stayed on the board until a Ben Shipman 27 yard field goal pushed the Jag lead to seventeen where it would stay as the final seconds ticked off the Cougar season. Campbell finished the year with four wins against five losses while Windham qualified for post season play, finishing at 7-2 and in third place in Division III.
School on October 17 and found themselves down 1-0 at halftime against a Titans team that was playing with a lot of intensity. The Broncos rebounded with a goal by Matt O’Brien off of a corner kick by Billy Perry only a couple minutes into the second half. Nashua North scored minutes later to go ahead 2-1, but Anthony Oliviera scored on an outside shot from about 25 yards from the goal. With the game tied, Devon Ruiter scored with a header on another corner kick by Billy Perry to give the Broncos the lead and 3-2 victory. On Tuesday, October 18, the JV boys traveled to Manchester Central for a game against the Crusaders. Manchester was a physical and highly skilled opponent and played a great game by possessing the ball. Opportunities were abundant for the Broncos, even hitting the post and the crossbar, but in the end they were unable to score. The team showed heart and determination in the 1-0 loss. The Alvirne JV boys soccer team played their last regular season game at Bronco Stadium on Thursday, October 20 against Spaulding High School. Matt Lubinski scored the first goal early in the game from a cross from Matt O’Brien. RJ Younghusband knocked in the second and final score of the day early in the second half. The Broncos were able to hold Spaulding scoreless throughout the game with a great defensive effort and possession by all completing the 2-0 shutout over the Red Raiders. The Broncos JV soccer team ended the season with a 6-9-0 record. On Saturday, October 23, the Broncos played three 35 minute games in a JV tournament at Nashua North High School. Their first game against a tough opponent with Concord High School. After being down 1-0 for most of the game, the Broncos were awarded a free kick about 30 yards out. The free kick was taken by Brett Richardson, and headed home by Brett Pitre to tie the game at 1-1. This score was the final result. The second game was played against the Timberlane HS Owls. The Broncos’ first goal was scored by Anthony Oliviera after being deflected off of an Owl defender. Only minutes later, the Broncos got their second goal from Billy Perry off of a pass by Matt Lubinski. However, the Broncos let the lead slip away with two late goals by the Owls, final score Alvirne 2, Timberlane 2. The third and final game of the tournament was played against Pinkerton Academy. Pinkerton scored the only goal of the game with a shot that hit the left goalpost, and was tucked under goalkeeper Jake Schofield. Final score Pinkerton 1, Alvirne 0. The Broncos ended their season with three impressive games against three impressive opponents, and this wasn’t any different from any other time during the season. Captains Jeremy Longchamp and Liam Regan were great leaders throughout the season. The JV boys should be proud of themselves for a season well played by all. Also, a big thank you to coach Ryan Hanlon for a great season.
