BCAC Midget Shamrocks Beat Levittown to Clinch Playoff Berth
It all came together for the BCAC Midget Shamrocks as they head into the playoffs after winning 24-6 over Levittown last weekend.
The game started out slowly, but the Shamrocks struck first on the scoreboard. RB Patrick Minihane (57 yards rushing) would break one down the field for a 53-yard touchdown. Minihane received great blocks from Vincent Visconti, David Cancel and Mike O'Reilly. The BCAC defense of Steven Kenny (six tackles), Andrew Visconti, Brendan Trudden and Danny Clark (five tackles) shut down the Levittown running backs. The Shamrocks would score again when Timmy McCabe (60 yards) scrambled 18 yards for a touchdown with the help of great blocks by Mike Henglein, Matt McCabe and Charlie Bostwick.
The BCAC defense would come up big again with the help of Vinny Cavanagh, Charlie Bostwick (five tackles and two sacks) and Minihane (six tackles). The Levittown offense would get on the board, cutting the Shamrocks lead to 12-6. But the BCAC offense would strike again when Bryan Bostwick (56 yards) would scamper 15 yards for the touchdown score. WR Mike Reardon provided some great blocking for Bostwick's touchdown. QB Cameron Manzi would take the ball himself and run 40 yards for the touchdown, making the score 24-6. Timmy McCabe (a forced fumble), Matt McCabe, and Reardon (fumble recovery) would play an astounding defensive game.
