Big Plays for Falcons and Vipers in High Scoring game.
The Mighty Mites Falcons D squad took on the Vernon Vipers last Sunday on
their first road trip of the year. This week’s captains were Drue Fleck, Greysen
Egana, Dalton Sisk and Anthony Toth. The Falcons were in search of their first
victory after two ties in the first two games. The weather was perfect for
the fans attending the game.
The Falcons won the coin toss and started the first play from the line of
scrimmage with a 30 yard run from quarterback Jeremy Mangiameli. The blocking up front was solid from Dante Salvatore, Anthony Toth, Drue Fleck, Peter DeRita,
Benjamin Pitruzzello and Michael Pitruzzello.
The Falcons lost possession on the next play and the Vipers took advantage and scored two touchdowns to jump to a quick 12-0 lead. But this young, resilient Falcon team did not give up so quickly.
They came back and scored on a 25 yard touchdown run by Sisk. Egana
converted the extra point which made the score 12-6. The Vipers came back to
score on the next series but the Falcons responded back just as quickly and
scored on a 70 yard dash by Mangiameli.
The Defense led by John Palo, Hayden Stojak, Sal Monarca, Zachary Raffles,
Kevin Lee and Anthony DeMartino held the Vipers as they were looking to score
before the half on an important 4th down play. The Falcons took possession and tried to punch in a score before halftime but fell just short of the end zone. The score at the half was 18-14 Vipers.
The second half had the Vipers and the Falcons trading touchdowns and
ultimately the big play offense of Vernon was too much for the Falcons on this
The final score was Vipers 37, Falcons 20.
Please join the Falcons as they take on Granby on Sunday, September 23rd at 3:00 PM at Aherns field.
