Shamrock Pee-Wees Win 24-6
The B.C.A.C. seven and eight year old Shamrock Pee–Wees defeated the Levittown Red Devils last Saturday evening in front of their home crowd at Memorial Field. The 2 an 0 Pee–Wees looked spectacular in their latest win as they have dominated their opponents on both sides of the ball.
Led by Quarterback Ronnie Lonnborg the Pee–Wees offense was unstoppable all night. In the first play from scrimmage fullback Brian Wallace took a handoff and ran the ball up the middle for a 19-yard gain, from then on in it was all Shamrocks. On the next play form scrimmage halfback Frank Laino took the ball through a huge hole in the left side of the line and with his speed took it right into the end zone for a 51-yard touchdown. Laino would later add another touchdown his fifth of the season with another great run. The offensive line opened holes all game led by Anthony Ciambriello, Sean Kelly, Tomas Krohn, Tim Bannon, Andrew Guttieri, Robert Holler and John Murray. In the first two games the offensive line had made running a lot easier for the backs. Offensive ends John Galimi, Zachery Wade, Steven Trudden and James McDermott have done a great job blocking on the outside.
The Red Devils took over the ball and were crushed by the Shamrock’s defense. On their first play form scrimmage middle line backer Wallace made an awesome shoestring tackle stopping what could have been a huge run. On the next play the Red Devils attempted a reverse around the right end, defensive end Ciambriello and outside line backer Tubridy played their positions perfectly and tackled the runner for a 13-yard loss. The Shamrock Defense was superb the rest of the game led by defensive linemen Brian Faught and Sean Kelly and Tomas krohn. These three linemen have been nothing short of spectacular in their first two games of the season making numerous solo tackles in the opponents back field. The Shamrocks offense then moved the ball to midfield when Lonnborg took the ball around the right end and headed up the home sideline, just when it appeared that Lonnborg would be tackled he cut left and headed across the field and into the end zone for the Shamrocks second touchdown. Big Chris Timmons attempted the extra point but came up a foot short.
The Levittown Red Devils attempted to move the ball but was shut down once again. The Red Devils offense attempted a pass on their first play but was sacked by Kelly for a 10 yard loss. The Shamrock Offense took back control of the ball and Coach Leo Chavanne put the ball in the air. After a great run up the middle for 25 yards by Tubridy, Laino took a beautiful pass in stride from Lonnborg and ran it to the ten yard line, Lonnborg then took the ball around the left around for another Shamrock touchdown. With the score 18 – 0 it was time for the younger Shamrock players to take over the game. Led by John Claudio-Bil, J.J. McMahon, Harold Burgos, Sean Cammarrata, Ryan Cutler, Michael Cipoletti and Matthew Randall. The younger players played outstanding once again and proved what a deep team the Shamrocks are. Cammarrata and Cipolletti made a crushing tackle on one of the Red Devil players. Cutler is a mad dog and will be an outstanding player next season. The younger players have been getting plenty of playing time the past two weeks and are all ready to take over this Pee–Wee team next season. The Pee-Wee team invites all their fans to cheer them on as they kick off against the tough 2 and 0 West Bablyon Jets this Sunday 1 p.m. at Memorial Field. Speaking of cheering the Shamrock Cheerleaders are back in force this season as they entertain the fans during the game and at half time with their great dance show. Dawn McIntyre and Nancy Chavanne Soliman have done a great job getting the girls prepared for this season. The cheerleaders who put on a great half time show are led by some of the older girls in the program, Adrienne Guttieri, Kristem McIntyre, Ashley Magnussen, Emily Frohnhoffer, Jill Guttieri, Sarah Dougherty, Liana Fallon, Lauren Mohr and Stephanie Galimi. The players along with the cheerleaders look forward to a packed house Sunday as the Pee–Wees look to up their record to 3 and 0.
