The Dick’s Sporting Goods Junior Pee Wees of the Barrington Pop Warner league won their fifth straight game Saturday in dominating fashion, defeating the Fairhaven Blue Devils at Victory Field by a score of 39-0.
The Eagles’ record now stands at 5-1.
The Eagle defense was outstanding throughout the game, keeping the Blue Devils out of the red zone all day. Chase White made some great tackles to stop the Fairhaven rush, while Slade Crane played strong Defensive Tackle, bursting into the backfield for key stops. Martin Agustin was lights out at Linebacker, ganging up on big tackles all day. Peter Burgess and Foster Egan hammered through the Fairhaven line at will and stuffed their running game mercilessly.
The offense exploded for big gains by RBs Kyle Greenberg and Zach Newberg on the opening drive, capped by a touchdown pounded up the middle by Jon Adamson. Greenberg then added a score of his own, punching through the Fairhaven line for a huge 46 yard TD run. Center Matt Peecher provided solid snaps, while terrific blocking came from Tackles Jack Kelleher, Ben Silva, Logan Graham, and Sergio DaSilva. Guards Andrew Prete and Meredith Kaplan kept the Blue Devils out of the Eagles backfield on every down. Tight Ends Robert Cahill and Marley Karnes were key to the Barrington sweeps, stuffing the defense to allow for big ground gains.
RB Noah Werbel delivered some awesome long sweep runs to put the Eagles on the one yard line. He then added an extra point with a sweet juke move that put him in the end zone untouched. QB Nick Roach continued his string of stellar performances with a rushing TD, a passing TD to reliable receiver Burgess, and several extra point conversion runs. Hunter Norris played an excellent game at center, as well as making tough solo tackles on defense. RB/LB Lexi Malnerich ran hard throughout the game, getting gritty some first downs on runs up the middle. RB/TE Seth Mitchell had and awesome 20 yard reception, and made countless “textbook” tackles at Cornerback. RB Will Rywolt had several long rushes, including a 20 yd TD run and two kickoff recoveries that kept the Eagles in control of the ball most of the game.
Barrington has a bye this week, then heads to Tiverton High School to face the Sakonnet Schooners on Sunday, Oct. 21.
