Shamrock Pee-Wees Undefeated Up Record To 4-0-1
Shamrock Pee-Wees Undefeated
Up Record To 4-0-1
Broad Channel Athletic Club Pee- Wee football team kept their undefeated season alive last Sunday as they cruised by the boy's from Levittown in a 31 to 7 rout.
The Pee-Wees had a great week of practice and it showed during
the game. In the first quarter, Quarterback Ronnie Lonnborg handed off the ball to the bull, full back Brian Wallace who took the ball up the middle for a 60 yard touchdown. Jack Tubridy took the ball in for the extra point putting the Shamrocks up 7 - 0. Wallace would add another touchdown later in the game as he just barreled over the opponents defense.
The offensive line was outstanding once again as line coach John Morrissey had the boys all pumped up. The line led by center Anthony Ciambriello, John Murray, Sean Kelly, Chris Timmons, Robert Holler, Sean Cammarata, Andrew Guttieri, Zachery Wade, Tim Bannon and James McDermott made it possible for the running backs
to hit the holes.
Offensive Captain Ronnie Lonn-borg had yet another great day at the quarterback position. Lonnborg scored on a 40 yard run around the right end and was awesome lead blocking for his backfield. Speedster half back Frank Laino added two more touchdowns giving him eight for the season. Every time Liano touches the ball the possibility of a Shamrock touchdown is
there. Hard hitting Jack Tubridy scored the final touchdown of the game with a dazzling run around the right end.
The Shamrock defense has been incredible in all five games with the
older boys not giving up a touchdown all season. This was a defensive dominated game for the Shamrocks as Jack Tubridy had one of his best games yet. Levittown had a huge 100 pound fullback who pounded the middle only to
run into hard hitting Tubridy. Tubridy made eight solo tackles as he shut down this hard hitting fullback.
With Sean Kelly, another dominant player not feeling well, his co-players on defense took up the slack. Kelly, although sick throughout the game, played his heart out and made some fierce tackles.
Brian Faught was his usual self on defense making numerous tackles from the defensive end position. In every game so far this season Faught has made it impossible for the opposing offense to run the ball. With Faught at one end and Ciambriello at the other end the opposing offense has it's hands full.
The Shamrock defense led by Coach Pete Ward is tops in this league. Linebacker Lonnborg had an interception, safety Steven Trudden and smiling John Galimi made it impossible for the Levittown team to gain any yardage or
complete any long passes. Trudden and Galimi are a great tandem at the safety positions and any time a runner turns the corner Trudden and Galimi are on the tackle. Brian Wallace made some fierce tackles from the middle linebacker position and is one of the hardest hitters in the league.
The defensive line led by Big Chris Timmons, Geoffrey Morrissey, Ryan Cutler, Tomas Krohn, Zachery Wade, James McDermott, Andrew Guttieri, and John Murray have played outstanding all season. The hard hitting defensive line have forced the opposing team to run the ball outside in every game this season making it impossible for them to establish any kind of positive yards.
The Pee-Wee Shamrocks made up of seven and eight year olds are a lock for the playoffs. The older boys have led this team and are a great inspiration for the seven year olds who will be back to lead this Pee-Wee team next season. In four out of the five games played so far this season the eight year old boys took
control of the game and then handed it off to the younger players. John "All I Wanna Do Is Hit" Claudio-Bil, Harold "I Can Tackle Anyone" Burgos, Mike Cipoletti, Sean Cammarata, Ryan" The Maddest Dog" Cutler, John Galimi,
Matthew Randall, Robert Holler, Jeffrey McMahon and Geoffrey Morrissey have shown how solid this Pee-Wee team is. These younger players are as solid as
any team in the league and will lead this team next season. The coaches are as proud as the seven year olds as they are the older boys.
The Shamrock Pee-Wees have a few tough games ahead of them as they march onto the playoffs. The boys travel this Sunday and take on the tough Bulldogs from Lindenhurst, 12 noon kick off.
Shamrock coaches, Marty Feeney, Leo Chavanne, Pete Ward and John Morrissey would like to thank all the parents of the team. We have a great mix of parents who show support for the players as well as the coaches. At every game this season the team has been well represented by the fans and that is such a big plus for this team. We have not only the best parents in
the league but the best grand parents in the league. Lonnborg, Cipolleti, Tubridy and Cutler have had their grandparents at all the games. Brian Wallace's granddad, Ron, has made not only every game but every practice and is without a doubt our number one fan.
A closing word from the coaches. We missed Tim Bannon last week as he is recuperating from an injury and look forward to his speedy recovery. Hurry up back Tim, the team needs ya. "Who let the dog's out."
