Pee Wee Shamrocks Ground Game Runs Over Oyster Bay
It was hot and sunny day for the Broad Channel Athletic Club Pee Wee Shamrocks as they traveled to Oyster Bay on Saturday, September 22.
The Shamrocks were ready for battle. Team captains Steven Kenny, Michael Krzyzanowski, Danny Hoff and Luke Hanning called the toss and the Shamrocks elected to receive.
On their second play of the game, the offense, which was led by QB Mario Cimino, handed off to Jordan Jessup who bolted up the middle of the field for a 60 yard touchdown.
Jessup's great run occurred because of great blocking by his fellow RB's Robert Kollmer, Hoff and Theo Stathis, WR Christian Paulich and the offensive line of CJ Galimi, Charlie Bostwick, Keith Servello, Anthony Russo, Kyle Hilgendorf, Michael Krzyzanowski and Tyler Runolfsson.
The Shamrock defense were ready for battle as they were led by Defensive Ends Michael Torres and Richard Wood; defensive lineman Patrick Minihane, Bostwick, Jordan Jessup, Liam Malsy, Cameron Manzi, Matt Ostrander and Dionte Scott; linebackers Kollmer, Steven Kenny and Anthony Cimino; safeties Hanning and Bobby Martin. After giving up an early touchdown, the Shamrocks defense held the Oyster Bay offense in check with solo tackles made by Jessup, A. Cimino, Kollmer, Wood, Torres, Bostwick and Martin.
While the defense was steady, the offense continued to dominate with Touchdown runs by Danny Hoff for 55 and 50 yards respectively as the Shamrocks led 18-13 at the half.
The defense was called upon for a quick stop to start the third quarter and forced a turnover on downs. Both defenses made stops until the beginning of the fourth quarter when Hoff took a pitch and followed Stathis, Kollmer, Jessup and Mario Cimino for 17 yards and his third touchdown of the game.
The Shamrocks defense forced a fumble and Jessup recovered the ball. The offense wasted no time and handed off to Theo Stathis who ran a sweep for a 26-yard touchdown, which was his first of the season and gave the Shamrocks a 31-13 lead.
The Oyster Bay Offense scored to cut the lead to 31-20 but the Shamrocks defense held tough. The Shamrocks ran out the clocks and gained the victory by the score of 31 to 20.
Congratulations to all of the Shamrock players, who are playing great football, showing great teamwork, and becoming close on and off the field.
