‘B’ team overwhelms Bulldogs
The unbeaten Everett Eagles B team clashed with the undefeated East Lynn Bulldogs this past Sunday at the Manning Bowl and the end result was a 28-6 thrashing administered by your Everett boys on the Bulldogs. Overcoming early jitters the team settled down and put the defensive clamps on a team averaging over 30 points a game. After scoring on their first drive on a 23 yard pass from Lucas Denis to Junior Hampton, with Omar Herrera adding another two points on the conversion kick, the Bulldogs took the ball and drove down field where they had 4 plays inside Everett’s 10-yard line but were denied the tying score. Stepping up to snuff the scoring drive were Renzo Marins, Lazare Joseph, Eric Trickett and D.J. MacDonald along with a host of other players. Later in the first half East Lynn drove in and scored with under a minute left but missed the extra point conversion for an 8-6 halftime score. The second half was more of the same as the potent Bulldogs were shut down on every series by a ball-hawking defense that did not allow too many yards after initial contact the rest of the game.
Adding to the defensive squeeze were touchdown runs of 7 yards by Renzo Marins, and two scores by Lazare Joseph ( 25 and 13 yards ) and another conversion kick by Herrera. Joseph’s last touchdown came on the last play of the game for a fitting finish. A special note should be made of the play of the special teams units that consistently made a long field for East Lynn. The team has now outscored their opponents by a whopping 145-12 margin, moved into sole possession of their division and with a spotless 5-0 record look to improve on that mark next week at home.
‘C’ team improves to a perfect 5-0
The Everett Eagles C team traveled to Lynn Sunday to take on North Shore League rival East Lynn Bulldogs at Manning Field. Eagle defensive end Lusciano Zumprano pounced on a loose ball at mid field on the second play of the game and Everett’s White offense, manned by Joey Holt, Daniel DeCastro, Zack Shea, Johnny Martignetti, Fanelson Monexant, Joel Perez, Bryan Bessler, Johnny Uga, and Dylan Cyprian, made the Bulldog’s pay with a five play, forty five yard drive. Everett’s defense then forced East Lynn to turn the ball over on downs and Everett would drive sixty yards capped off by Johnny Uga’s twenty yard run. The play of the day was turned in by linebacker Jack Gerace on the Bulldogs’ next possession. Gerace, dropping back in pass coverage, picked off a pass intended for a Bulldog slot receiver and took it sixty five yards to put the Eagles up 21-0. Uga and Cyprian would add another score each to make the final score Eagles 33 East Lynn 14. This victory puts the Eagles in command of the North Shore League with a record of 5-0.
‘D’ team dominates
The Everett Eagles D-Team marched in to Lynn this Sunday and dominated a very good East Lynn Bulldogs squad coming away with a 27-0 win. The Defense which has proven to be the strong suit of this team once again showed how good they can be. Kamerin Williams, Giovanni Raduzzo, Peterson Monexant, Liam McKinnon, and Jalil Marinez controlled the line of scrimmage all day. Linebackers Devante Hampton, Keyanti Anilus and Devon Powell delivered some crushing hits. D-backs Khari Johnson and Brian Ciulla smothered the Bulldog receivers. East Lynn could not move the ball against this unit gaining only two first downs all day.
The Offense woke up in the second half as quarterback Sean Cardello moved his team steadily down the field. Key blocks by Kyle Huntsman, Michael Bono, and Brandon Wood sprung fullback Keyanti Anilus for two powerful runs for scores. Then quarterback Jake Wilcox took over taking the Gold Offense on a time consuming 70 yard drive. Jaden Dottin was once again the key player pounding the ball for big gains. Dottin capped this drive with a 20 yard touchdown run. Quarter Trevor Tarlowski took the White offense on a late drive this time allowing Devon Powell to scamper 25 yards for the score. Kicker Gabe DeSouza made the extra point to cap off the scoring
This was a big step towards this team’s goal of getting to the playoffs. But it was only one step the coaches know there are more games to be played and they hope to have the team ready every week.
‘E’ is for exciting
This week, the Everett Eagles E-Team travelled to the Manning Bowl in Lynn to take on the East Lynn Bulldogs…and boy are they fun to watch!
Anthony Laurenza showed he has what it takes by making the middle linebacker position look like a perfect fit for him. Offensively he blocked with intensity along with Yoma Odgen and Rondell Harris, both of whom played a productive game.
Nicky Barbrick had the opportunity to showcase his versatility. Defensively, nothing much gets past his end and offensively, he’s second to none blocking on the line from either guard position or center.
Kayo Diaz and Shea Wilcox both enjoyed an amazing day in Lynn. Diaz saving a Bulldog first down conversion by stopping the ball carrier just shy , and Wilcox by capitalizing with a 37 yard run on the very next play.
Later in the game, Diaz -Wilcox became a factor again when Wilcox delivered a bone-crushing hit, rocking the Bulldog offense. The second down seen a fumble recovery by Diaz giving the Eagles possession.
Join us this Sunday as the Everett Eagles host the South End Titans . Live, exciting football action starts at 8am.
