Midget Shamrocks Continue Top Form On The Field
The Broad Channel Midget Shamrocks are doing what the New York Yankees couldn’t do, stay hot and win three football games in a row.
That’s right; the Shamrocks are red hot and continued their winning ways last Sunday with a huge win over East Meadow at home.
This win was the closest of the winning streak and saw the Shamrocks come from behind twice on the day to complete the victory. It all started on the Shamrock’s opening drive when Peter Meehan scored a 62- yard touchdown on the second play from scrimmage, followed by a Jack Collins to Joe Cassillo pass to convert the extra point. East Meadow would answer with two scores to go up 13-7.
Peter Meehan would then score on a 20-yard dash to the end-zone followed by a Jack Allen to Michael O’Connell pass for the successful extra point conversion to go up 14-13.
East Meadow, once again would answer with a touchdown on the next drive to go up 20-14. It looked like that would be the score going in to halftime, but then Allen connected to Meehan on a 60-yard spiral through the air to put the Shamrocks up 21-20 at the half.
The Green Machine knew that the defense needed to step up and stop East Meadow from moving the ball up and down the field. That’s when Andrew Visconti, Ryan Hanning, Luke Jackowski, Nicco Finizio, JJ Negron, Christian Correa, Vincent Nizzo & Richard Tally would step it up; contributing on 29 tackles on the day.
The big defensive moment came when Eddie Sinisgalli chased down East Meadow’s Quarterback in the end-zone right into the waiting arms of Anthony Cassillo for the safety.
The Shamrocks would get another touchdown on a Collins 14-yard scramble, followed by an O’Connell extra point run to put the game away. The final score was 30-26 Shamrocks, with Pete Meehan rushing for 146 yards, had 60 receiving yards and scoring three touchdowns. The Shamrocks passing tandem of Collins/ Allen was also perfect on the day completing all four passes for 78 yards, 2 extra points and scored a touchdown. This offensive scoring display was only successful thanks to great job done by the offensive line led by Liam Doda, Thomas Corbett, Sebastian Frieberg and Sam Fretto.
The Shamrocks are now 4-2-1 on the year and will play their last home game of the season this Sunday at the BCAC Memorial Field at 12 p.m. vs. second pace Bethpage. So come on out and watch as the Shamrocks go for four in a row and make their push towards the playoffs.
Now it is time for the Shamrock Fan of the Week, and it goes to Mr. Negron. Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night keeps Mr. Negron away from coming to all games. He even has a home green & road white jersey that he proudly wears at every game.
So there are only two weeks left if you want to win Shamrock Fan of the Week & be in the running for Fan of the Year.
