13U  NPF 29 LONDONDERRY 20

Sunday, August 25th, 2019.  Nashua PAL Force 13U football team traveled to take on the Londonderry Wildcats for their gridiron season opener. The teams battled through the first half and PAL Force had one touchdown by John Barry Jr (35) but found themselves down 20-8 at the half.  A spirited half-time pep talk by the coaches and captains proved to be the motivating factor for the team to hold Londonderry to a shutout in the second half.  The scoring was led by Johnny Barry Jr (35) who scored two more touchdowns and Johnathan Torres (23) scoring one touchdown topped off by two PATs by Steven Rosario (34).  Adding to the intensity of the game, Gavin Adkinson (85) had a key interception and Armany Richiez had a strip and a fumble recovery which were both important turnovers at critical times in the game.  The second half scoring was supported by the PAL ‘ForceField' defense which held Londonderry to 21 unanswered points and kept the Wildcats from getting any momentum for the remainder of the game.

8U Nashua Pal Force WIN over Salem Rams

Two undefeated teams faced off Sunday. PAL Force vs Salem Rams. This was a hard fought game with both teams giving it their all until the last minute. The first half ended close to even with the teams trading scoring opportunities. It was the PAL defense shutting out the Rams in the second half that made the difference. Key to the second half success was Yamil Hernandez and Walter Dolloff shut down any outside scoring opportunities from their cornerback positions.

 

Scoring was led by Leo Desfosses who ran for multiple touchdowns. A long touchdown run up the middle from Xavier Maldonado in the second half propelled PAL to victory.

 

10U NPF 38 Laconia 0

Nashua PAL 10U Football Team, Led by Coach Mo Sisay defeated the Laconia Chiefs by a score of 46-0 in front of a large contingent of PAL fans that made the early morning trek from the Gate City to Laconia.

 

A balanced Offensive attack was led by Quarterback Dharyus Sisay. Dharyus connected on aerial strikes that resulted in scores to Wideouts Tyson Hoang and Dominic Fantozzi. On the ground, Jordan Toribio raced for 3 scores and shredded a stout and skilled Laconia Defense. Deiondre Sisay added 2 touchdowns including a long 4th quarter Touchdown run showing shiftiness and speed to put an exclamation point on the victory. Josiah Spleen kept the Chief defense off balance while giving the PAL Force some tough yards and chewing up the clock on several carries.

 

The Offensive Line anchored by Center Bishop Kearns, Guards Paul O’Brien, Victor Lavoie, Tackles Nick Acevedo, Ashton Carrion and Tight Ed Avri Ferro-Lavoie worked hard all day long in the trenches and consistently controlled the line of scrimmage showing toughness, Grit and PAL pride in doing the dirty work up front.

 

The Defense, was crisp, fast and disciplined. Brian Pouliot was fierce in his first start as Inside Linebacker for the Force. Nose tackle David Lago demanded double-teams throughout the day and was dominant upfront while disrupting the Laconia Running attack. Richard Labrada and Deiondre Sisay sealed the edges all day long and pushed the Chief runners inside where they met by the likes of Cornerback Aiden Smith-Nightingale, Tyson Hoang, Fantozzi, Spleen , Carrion, Acevedo and Defensive Stalwarts Jordon Toribio and Dharyus Sisay. Laconia’s potent offense was unable to find it’s rhythm through the air, Thanks to the patrolling efforts of , Kayden Geddes and Owen Gagnon in the Defensive backfield.. Gagnon,  used his superior speed to break up several passes and also contributed with some key tackles.

WEEK FOUR 
8U NPF WIN Derry Demons
 
It was a scoring dual between the undefeated 8U PAL Force and Derry Demons. The opening kickoff was run back for a touchdown by Force player Leo Desfosses. Desfosses would see the end zone 3 more times before the day was over. Daunte Sisay had multiple runs which looked like impossible paths through traffic including one for a touchdown. The offensive dominance can be attributed to the work upfront by Kason Toupin, Jaxson Santiago, Liam Matarazzo, Cam Silva, and Dylan Sullivan-Miranda.
the day was long and hot with the game being delayed one hour. Despite the heat and playing both sides of the ball all day, Mason Bracetty, Xavier Maldonado, Luke Graven, Jake Hamernik, Daunte Sisay, and Jace Gallego all came up with key defensive plays for PAL Force to remain unbeaten in the first 4 games. 
 
9U Nashua PAL Force 20 Manchester South 7
 
The Nashua PAL Force 9u team came into this Sunday’s game with an unfortunate 0-3 record. From the moment they hit the field at 9am though, there was no mistaking how hungry they were for a victory.
The First half was filled with thunderous tackles from Nashua’s Defense players Gustavo Baldon (#50), Anthony Samaral (#87), Cole Brandt (#54), Eli Gagnon (#77), and Edward Gonzalez (#33).
We saw plays for positive yardage carried out by Jacob Smith (#84) in the first half as well as Yandel Valasquez (#40) who had a long carry and notably “lowered the boom” on Manchester’s defense at the 4 yard line. Nashua fans then got to cheer on QB Drew Homsy (#16), who successfully found his man Cole Brandt (#54), airing out the ball like a pro for a big TD. Gagnon (#77) also was able to secure a TD after an incredible 50+ yards mad dash to the End Zone.
There was a huge team effort to step up offensive blocking in the first half and it paid off!
Force did not let off the gas in the second half- in fact they looked even more ravenous for the win.
The defense made each hit count. Samaral (#87), Gagnon (#77), Alia Brunet (#9), Kevin King (#52), JJ Velasquez (#8), and Baldon (#50) punished Manchester’s O with clean and well executed tackles and were standouts amongst their peers, who also – did not disappoint.
We saw more plays for positive yardage from many of the Offensive roster including, Velasquez (#40), Gagnon (#77), Brandt (#54), and Homsy (#16).
Davin Routier (#22) successfully punched the pigskin in for a TD with assistance from his teammates Brandt (#54), Smith (#84), and Gagnon (#77) who all held their blocks despite Manchester’s efforts to shake them.
Nashua PAL Force 9u, showed up hungry – and boy did they eat!
Final Score: Force 20-7

Tyson Hoang came up with a big fumble recovery when the Force needed it and Deiondre Sisay had a big interception as well  
 
Inspirational defensive performances were put in byDeiondre Sisay, Aiden Smith- Nightingale, Brian Pouliot,Jr. Dharyus Sisay, Kearns, Toribio, Hoang, Carrion, Acevedo, Lago, Levi Mitchell and Owen Gagnon .Richard Labrada sealed his edge, made some big tackles and was disruptive to the Salem offensive game plan. Kayden Geddes made some key stops and came up big on special teams for the Force.

Owen Gagnon and Deiondre both had long offensive runs and Tyson Hoang had two fumble recoveries as well.
The Offensive Line Centered by Bishop Kearns and supported by guards Paul O’Brien, Victor Lavoie, and tackles Nick Acevedo and Ashton Carron was not allowing anyone to stop our quest for the win.  Laconia was unable to get through Nashua’s defense.  David Lago was dominant sacking his opponents left and right, Tyson Hoang was also all over the field making huge stops for Nashua. The whole team deserves to be shouted out on defense because it was 100% a team effort.  Richard Labrada, Aiden Smith-Nightingale, Kayden Geddes, Avri Ferro Lavoie, Levi Mitchell, Vincenzo Valenta and all of the above mentioned worked together and improved their record to 3-2.  10U plays on 10/6 at Stello’s Stadium in Nashua vs the Manchester East Cobras.

WEEK SIX
 

GAME SIX

NPF 8U WIN over Salem

 

The undefeated 8U Nashua PAL Force had a rematch Sunday of their week 3 game against the Salem Rams. These two teams are closely matched and this week didn’t disappoint ending in a nail biting touchdown in the final minute of the game.

 

The Rams came out strong with their offense able to move the ball well. They took an early lead and didn’t give it up for 3 quarters. Nashua’s defense was on the ropes allowing the rams to get in the red zone multiple times. But key turnovers by the force defense kept the game within reach. Walter Dolloff and Luke Graven both came up with fumble recoveries in the first half for the Force.

 

Nashua was still trailing by an extra point conversion in the 4th quarter. When Salem broke open a long run for a touchdown late in the 4th. Nashua’s Force had to stop the extra point for any hope to tie the game. They came up with the stop and gave their offense a chance. A long run by Leo Desfosses seemed to be the answer only to have it called back for a penalty. Desfosses tired from the run was able to do it again two plays later only to be caught on the one yard line. Xavier Maldonado punched it in for the TD on the next play. Maldonado was called on again for the extra point and the tie game.

 

It seemed all but certain this game would end regulation in as a tie. But with a little more than a minute left in the game Jake Hamernick of the Force’s defensive line reached past his blocker and stripped the running back of the ball as it tumbled forward Xavier Maldonado quickly pounced on the ball giving the Force offence one more shot.

 

Quarterback Leo Desfosses was called upon one more time to try to make this a story book comeback for the ages. As he swept right he saw the Salem defense flood to the outside which had been keying on his every move the entire game. Desfosses changed his direction up field and somehow found a seam. As he broke through the other side it was a foot race to victory. The Force defense then held on for the final seconds and a win for Nashua.

 

10U  NPF 35 Manchester East Cobras 0

 

The Nashua PAL Force 10U Football team improved to 4-2 on the season with a 35-0 victory over the visiting Manchester East Cobras Sunday afternoon at Stellos Stadium. The offense operated like a well oiled machine as Jordan Toribio dominated on both sides of the ball, racing for 2 scores on offense and leading the defense with several tackles for loss and a strip sack. Brothers Dharyus and Deiondre Sisay wreaked havoc on the Cobras as older brother Dharyus threw touchdown strikes to Dominic Fantozzi and Tyson Hoang, ran a QB sneak for a score and watched as younger brother Deiondre scampered for a 40 yard TD to close out the scoring. The Sisay brothers punished Cobra Ball carriers while on defense.

 

The Cobra Defense was tough and the Force Offensive line led by Bishop Kearns, Vinnie Valenta, Ashton Carrion, Paul O’Brien, Nick Acevedo, Victor Lavoie and Avri Ferro- Lavoie worked hard in the trenches and all gave solid efforts.

 

The Defense recorded its second straight shutout. David Lago and Richard Labrada were dominating as they played much of the game behind the Cobra line of scrimmage, each recording several key stops and each recorded fumble recoveries. Levi Mitchell, Kayden Geddes, Owen Gagnon, Aiden Smith- Nightengale and Josiah Spleen all made major contributions to the victory. 

 

Special Teams were solid as entire swarms of PAL Force players limited the Cobra return game to minimal gains.

 

The Force travel to Bedford, NH next week to faceoff against a determined Bedford Bulldog squad.

 

11U NPF 27 Keene 0
