Peanut Shamrocks Tie Game With Fourth Quarter Surge
The BCAC Peanut Shamrocks hosted the Seaford Broncos this past Sunday at BCAC Memorial Field. The Shamrock offense started the game without Aiden Leary due to an injury, but he was at the game rooting for his team.
Logan Hilgendorf started at QB and called a great game. Matthew Stack broke a tackle and ran 25 yards to the 2- yard line. Frankie Sinisgalli took the handoff from Logan on a 23 dive play and scored to take a 6-0 lead. Seaford scored on the next possession to tie the game. On the Shamrocks’ next offensive possession Matthew Stack scored on a 29 Sweep to take the lead 12-6.
The Broncos scored before halftime to tie the score at 12.
The Shamrock defense came out with a vengeance to start the second half. Lineman Frankie Sinisgalli (4 sacks, 6 tackles), Brendan Henglein (2 tackles), Brian Keller (2 tackles) and James Arena (2 tackles), Logan Hilgendorf (2 Tackles), Hayden Malsy (2 tackles), linebackers Danny Ognian (3 tackles), Joseph Esposito (4 tackles), Lukas Weiss (8 tackles) and free safety Matthew Stack (8 tackles) battled Seaford.
The Broncos would eventually score a touchdown to take an 18-12 lead. The Shamrock offense took the field and started to move the ball. Lukas Weiss ran 15 yards on a big fourth down run but was hurt on the play. Logan Hilgendorf turned to Joseph Esposito and he ran 20 yards to bring the ball down to the 5-yard line.
On second and goal the offensive line of Lukas Weiss, Jeremiah O‘Shea, Matthew Stack, Frankie Sinisgalli, along with FB Hayden Malsy, sealed a hole and Joseph Espositio scored his first touchdown of the season to tie the game.
The Broncos had 4 minutes left and took the field but the Shamrock Defense was ready. Sinisgalli, Weiss and Stack came up with some big tackles. But it was a team gang tackle on fourth down that ended the game and sealed a Shamrock 18-18 tie. The Peanut Shamrocks are now 2-2-2 and have improved every week.
