Varsity East Delta Patriots
Riding a nine-game winning streak into the Super Bowl, the Varsity East were matched up against the Liberty Ranch Junior Hawks. The last time they met, the East edged the Hawks 8-6 in the fourth quarter. The Super Bowl turned out to be a hard-hitting game – both teams lost lineman to injury.
Nathan Rollins, who was unable to play against the Hawks last time due to injury, showed off his touch at quarterback, connecting with receiver Frank Kurtz for three TDs. Rollins also hooked up with Andrew Topete, Nick Zalec and TJ Briggs for other long gains. Spearheaded by multiple tackles for loss by TJ Briggs, Frank Kurtz, Shon Briggs, Andrew Topete and Nick Zalec, the defense shut down the power running game of the Hawks. The defense capped off the game with Zalec tackling the Hawks running back in the end zone for a safety, making the score 20-0.
Patriots Rookies North
On a cool, crisp day at Heritage High School, the 10-0 Delta Patriots North Rookies faced off against the Liberty Jr. Hawks for the Super Bowl.
The Patriots took the opening kickoff and marched down the field on only three plays, scoring on a 25-yard run by Charles Johnson. After a safety put two on the board for the Jr. Hawks, Lillard recovered a fumble for the Patriots on the Jr. Hawks’ 20-yard line. Two minutes into the second quarter, the Patriots marched 80 yards to score on a Warren touchdown, making the score 12-2.
The Patriot defense – led by Fej, Ryan Perry, and Kevin Lonergan – forced the Hawks to punt, and the Patriots responded with a 41-yard touchdown by Johnson to go up by 17 points. Shortly before halftime the Hawks struck back with their own touchdown and extra point to make the score 19-9 at the half.
The Jr. Hawks started the third quarter by taking the ball all the way to the 10-yard line – with the help of a few Patriot penalties. But the Patriot D refused to let the Jr. Hawks score. Warren ran for a 25-yard touchdown in the third quarter to complete the final score of 25-9, giving the Patriots Rookies North an 11-0 season record and the Super Bowl title.
