Field, Parker Rice, Dylan Szostak and Thomas Hebert put the clamp down on the Capitols’ running game. They forced Concord to turn the ball over on downs with four minutes to go in the first half. MacLean tore off a couple of first down runs and then connected with Delaney for a 42-yard touchdown pass play along the right sideline. The two would hook up again for the conversion making the score 13-6. Concord would pound the ball deep into Wolverines’ territory in the

last minute of the second quarter but Schramm and Delaney came up big by sacking the Capitol’s QB twice. That put an end to the drive and the half. Windham went right to work during their first possession of the second half. Zach Kurgan, Adam Vitale, Tim Michalik, Robbie Furman and Rourke Curtin opened up a hole for a slicing 50-yard TD run by MacLean. Hebert, Curtin and Pallaria would seal the end for the shifty QB to run the ball into the end-zone untouched for the extra

point. Concord would respond with a nice catch-and-run TD pass, narrowing Windham’s lead to eight points. The Wolverines’ next scoring drive displayed an impressive ground game. MacLean would cap it off with a 5-yard end-around run to the right corner of the end-zone. DiCicco made a great stutter-step move and maneuvered around several defenders for the extra point. The score was now 27-12. Nick Mueller, Jack Potter, Kurgan and Field shut down Concord’s running game and air attack. Mueller made a terrific open field tackle after a Capitol receiver made a catch and looked to have a clear path down the sideline. Midway through the fourth quarter, however, Concord would connect on a long TD pass play to pull within eight points again. Windham would put the game out of reach with 2:06 left in the game when MacLean made a diving interception at the Capitol 44 yard line. On the next play, Hebert broke through five would-be tacklers, scampered to the outside and down the right sideline --all the way for the touchdown. Final Score: Windham 33, Concord 19. The sixth grade Wolverines matched up against the Concord Capitols in their semi-final game. Windham jumped out to a six point lead when running back/receiver Max Faro hit the left hole with a full head of steam and never looked back. On the defensive side, Jack Swarbrick, Jake Byers, Niko Nardone, Jonathan Saklad and Faro racked up several tackles to keep the Capitols off the scoreboard in the first quarter.

Cunningham who made a circus catch at the Capitol’s 7 yard-line. That set up a TD strike from Byers to Swarbrick who was open in the back of the end- zone. The score at half-time was 18-0. In the second half, the Wolverines offense picked up where they left off. Faro shook off three tacklers at the line and sprinted 67 yards down to the six yard-line. Swarbrick pounded the ball to the two. Dunlap then finished the job when he bolted through the Concord defense and into the end- zone. Faro ran in the conversion to make the score 25-0. Windham’s Tommy Costa made a great special teams play during the ensuing kick- off. Costa managed a shoestring tackle to save what would have been a certain Concord touchdown. Aleksa then made his second outstanding defensive play of the day when he recovered a fumble with 6:54 left

in the third quarter. The Wolverines began an impressive scoring drive. Dunlap busted another terrific run to the outside for 25 yards and Aleksa blazed down the field for a solid eleven-yard run of his own.
