Brody Silver and Francis Furtado each ran for touchdowns. Pierce Emard ran for two extra points and made several tackles defensively. They are looking to make the playoffs as they prep for the second half of the season.
10U team pummeling opponents
The 10U Warriors are 4-0 and looking like a juggernaut as they pummeled their opponents 107-6 through the first four games. This team is the epitome of what the word team stands for as several players on both sides of the ball are playing at a high level. 10U is led by a stout defense of tough hard nosed football players who bring tons of energy and effort.
12U team gets back on track
After starting the season 0-3, the 12U Warriors beat up Portsmouth 38-13 in week 4. Quarterback Shea Worthen and running back Kai Williford led the offensive attack and Logan Ferreira put in a stellar effort on defense with six tackles. The team has its sights on making a playoff push.
