Peewee Division Highlights
Peewee games have been getting interesting as the season winds down. With one regular season game remaining, this was the highlight game played under high wind conditions. The Jimmy Ryan’s Rams in a very close defensive battle defeated the Ralph Giordano FH Saints 6-0. This was the third time these two teams have met and ended with identical scores. QB Nicolas Bustamante threw for the league leading 9th TD for the season to WR Kenneth Prince who made a great catch between 2 defenders for the only score of the game in the third quarter. As always nothing is possible without the Oline led by center TY Diaz, Frankie Serrano, Tommy Forliano, Daniel Ortiz, Matthew Rodriguez. RB Maximus Rivera had a good game eating up the clock so the Saints would not get a final possession. On defense, Anthony Hernandez and Jayden Diaz had an interception to help the offense. Outstanding players on defense were Xavier Holloway, Frankie Serrano, Ty Diaz, Ephram Espillat, D’Angelo Cabrera, Nico Bustamante , Deon Gonzales and Luis Ferran. The Rams final game of the season this upcoming Saturday will be against a well-coached Javelins team.
For the Saints, the defense has been terrific, and for some reason always shines against the Rams. The defense played a great game with main contributors being: Chelsy Samuel 6 Tackles; Neil Fico 2 tackles; Adniel Sanchez 4 tackles; Solomon Smith 3 tackles; Tyler Bobe 4 tackles; Richard Salonia 3 tackles; Justin Laniyan 3 tackles; Jadyen Sawyers 3 tackles; Kiel Leonard 3 tackles.

In the late game on Saturday the undefeated Schuyler Hill FH Javelins continued their regular season domination of the division, defeating the Scavello’s on the Island Black Knights. Some Offensive highlights for the Saints – Christian Bangura scored 1st with a 50 yard run. Brandon Smallwood scored on a 5 yard run. Jayden Ciprian scored on a 40 yard pass and Kenny Clarke scored on a 3 yard run. The powerful offensive line of the Javelins provided protection all day thanks to Aiden Castellanos, Liam Conlon, Ismail Shahid. The Javelin’s Orange Crush defense held the Black Knight’s scoreless, including a safety for their fourth shutout of the season.
The Knights played minus their star running back and defensive player and a few other players but those who showed up played hard all day. Jayden Cintron stepped up big time, trying to carry the offensive load with 75 rushing yards. Anthony Alonso added 35 tough yards as well. The offensive line of Denzel Collado, William Lappe, Mason Lorenzo, Jared Baez Sean Vega and Tyler Vernon worked hard against a bigger Javelin line. The defense tried their best to contain the Javs powerful offense, holding them to 12 points in the first half. Coach Bloss was encouraged with his team’s play, saying they should all hold their heads high and get ready for the next game.. Outstanding defensive players were Judah Encarnacion, Raymond Velez, William Lappe, Sean Vega, Jared Perez, Anthony Alonso, Jayden Cintron and Ndubusi Nwosu.
The O’Connor Carpets Blue Devils and Greenwich Shipping Services Warriors were idle.
