Defensively for the Shamrocks, Anthony Cimino, Charlie Bostwick, Liam Malsy, Johnny Weiss, Danny Clark, Aidan Smith, Bryan Bostwick, Brian McNulty, Johnny Walsh and James Carson controlled the line of scrimmage.

Leading 24-12, the Shamrock offense started to move the ball in the third Quarter with many runners contributing, Michael Henglein, Liam Malsy, Steven Kenny and Johnny Weiss brought the ball down to the Bobcat 30. Cameron Manzi took the next handoff and ran a sweep for a TD. The Shamrock defense forced a 4th and 3 with nice tackles by Bryan Bostwick, James Carson and Danny Clark but the Bobcats scored on a sweep. Charlie Bostwick was the featured back on the next Shamrock series using stiff arm blocks and scored on a 35 yard run.
After a Bobcat TD the Shamrocks looked to run out the clock but Aidan Smith took his second handoff of the game and scored his first TD of the season on a 35 yard sweep.
The Shamrocks have won 4 straight games but more importantly practice and play as a team every week. Parents should be very proud, your kids are playing great and it shows on the field and in their smiles.
