Bishop Stang Spartans are Heading to TD Garden

Bishop Stang has a lot to celebrate! The second-seeded Spartans  clinched  a 72-61 win over No. 4 Burke in the Division 3 South Finals.  Now it’s on to the TD Garden!

The Spartans put a lot of preparation into this game and the focus was definitely there! No one wanted their season to end and it definitely paid off.

The Spartans used strategic game plans offensively and defensively and frustrated and confused the Burke team.

Coach Colbey Santos gave his players a lot to to work on this week and they responded with flying colors.  Everyone was laser focused and played their best.

Junior Guard Joey Silva III, was a key player who drew charges on Burke point guard Devante Jamison causing him to spend the final 11 minutes of the first half sitting the bench.

It was definitely a head game and the strategy worked.   What a game it was to watch! Spectators were on their feet in this nail-biting extravaganza!

Dame Perry also had a great game!

The Spartans now hold the Division 3 South Sectional Championship and can’t wait to move onto the TD Garden and see where they can go from there!

Come on out and cheer on your favorite Spartans!

ORR Lady Bulldogs Advance to Quarter Finals

The Lady Bulldogs came out firing in the Feb. 28 game, leading 13-10 after the first quarter, powered by a strong defense and 6 points from Junior co-captain Mary Butler.

ORR played a different game in the second quarter though, scoring only 5 points and allowing the Wolverines to take a halftime lead of 24-15.

“I told the girls at halftime that we are significantly faster than they are and we have to use our speed to wear them out” coach Bob Hohne said.

The Lady Bulldogs listened. Coming out of the locker room with a new energy and toughness, they finished the third quarter only down by 2 points, at 32-30.

The team played an incredibly physical 4th quarter defensively, wearing down the Westwood offense and grabbing many rebounds. They held Westwood back to scoring only 5 points in the quarter.

The last-quarter scoring was led by two clutch 3-pointers by Freshman Annemarie Perry and a 6 for 7 free throw clinic by Junior Cadence Johnson. These helped the team pour on 20 points and win 50-37.

Next up for the Lady Bulldogs will will be the quarter final game in Falmouth, on Saturday at 6:30 p.m

ORR Bulldogs are Heading to Gillette Stadium

Bulldogs hoist trophy after rocking Ashland

 
 
 
 
Nov 9, 2018
 
 
 
 

MATTAPOISETT — Facing heavy rain and slick mud, the Old Rochester Bulldogs combined hard-nosed defense and an unstoppable running game to take home the Division 6 South Championship trophy after punishing the Ashland Clockers 28-6. 

The Bulldogs had David Hagen Field rocking on Friday night after they put up four scores and gutted the Ashland offensive attack. The Clockers could not find the end zone until the final minute of play due to the driving rain and an impenetrable defense which crushed any hopes for a comeback. 

The Clockers (9-2) received the opening kickoff as rain began to fall and fans cheered at each side of the field.

The Bulldogs’ offense can score in an instant, so it was important for Ashland to score right out of the gate. Unfortunately for them, the Bulldogs defense came ready to play and forced a quick punt on the opening drive.

After a turnover from the Bulldogs, however, it looked as if the Clockers had a chance to shutdown their undefeated opponent. 

Despite the takeaway, Ashland came up short on offense as well. 

With a well-placed punt pinning them at the one-yard line, the Bulldogs put together one of their most impressive drives of the entire season. On the back of a strong rushing attack, the Bulldogs marched the length of the field and pounded the football into the end zone on an eight-yard Desmond Dias rush at the end of the first quarter. 

On the next drive, the Bulldog defense came up with a big third down sack to force yet another Ashland punt. Without missing a beat, the Bulldogs hit pay dirt on a 39-yard touchdown pass to Tyler Noe, putting them up 14-0. 

The stingy defense quickly halted the Clockers on their next drive. On the attempted punt, the snap was fumbled by the punter and the Bulldogs went to work on offense at the goal line. Dias wasted little time finding the end zone again and did so on a hand off at the two-yard line. 

At the end of the half, the Bulldogs were up 21-0 and poised to continue their dominance in the second half. 

Though the offense did not score again until fourth quarter, the Bulldogs’ defense refused to give Ashland any breathing room on offense. 

The Clockers started the second half by moving the ball well and picked up a few first downs. When it seemed like Ashland was starting to click on offense, a fumble quickly put a damper on any momentum they were starting to build. 

By the end of the third quarter, the steady rain had turned into a complete downpour and converted the field into a muddy soup. 

If there were any questions about the Bulldogs’ defensive effort heading into the second half, they were all put to bed following an impressive eight-play goal line stand. With Ashland knocking on the door of the end zone, the Bulldogs came up with back-to-back fourth down stops after a pass interference call gave Ashland a new set of downs. 

On the eighth attempt to get into the end zone, the Bulldogs swarmed an Ashland runner and forced a timely fumble at the two-yard line. The defensive stand effectively ended any shot for Ashland to rebound from its poor start to the game. 

Before the final seconds ticked off of the clock, Dias found the end zone on a 28-yard rush and Ashland managed to toss a touchdown pass with  55 seconds left on the clock, but it was not enough to overcome the deficit. 

When the clock hit zero, the Old Rochester student section stormed the field and Bulldog players celebrated the victory by turning the muddy field into their own slip’n slide. 

After playing 12 games this season, and winning them all, the Old Rochester Bulldogs finally hoisted their Division 6 trophy in front of a crowd of peers and family members. 

“It’s been a great year and the kids earned it, I’m very happy for them and all my coaches,” said Coach Justin Kogler. “I’m extremely proud of them, their work in the offseason is the reason why we’re here right now and they’re just a great group of kids.”

With Friday’s win, the Bulldogs will move on to play at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough for the Division 6 Super Bowl.

Bulldogs Football Remains Undefeated

Bulldogs block Dedham, remain undefeated

 
 
 
Nov 4, 2018
 
 
 

In Saturday night’s semifinal game the Bulldogs held off the Maurauders 34-14 to continue their undefeated streak.

The team built up a 20 point lead in the first half, and as halftime approached it seemed like Dedham might remain scoreless, but Old Rochester let up two touchdowns before thwarting a final drive that might have evened the score.

Both sides started off the game with strong defensive play, and neither team scored in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs started off the second quarter much stronger on offense, as Desmond Dias scored just 46 seconds in to the quarter. Cole McIntire scored on a five-yard pass following a 51-yard run which set up the play.

Will Garcia also managed to score in the first half, while ORR’s defense held off the Marauders from scoring at all.

But as the final minutes of second quarter ticked away, Dedham inched toward the end zone and scored just before halftime.

The third quarter opened with Dedham possessing the ball, but the Bulldog’s Camden Brezinski forced a fumble and ran it to the 20 yard line, quickly giving the bulldogs a first and 10.

A pass to Noah Maxwell brought the ball just four yards from the end zone, setting up another McIntire touchdown. An incomplete conversion set the score at 26-7 midway through the third quarter.

Though the Bulldogs recovered a fumble and gained possession of the ball at 2:13, the the Marauders defense kept them from moving past the 40 yard line for the rest of the quarter.

About midway through the fourth quarter, Dedham scored again. A failed onside kick, however, handed the ball back to the bulldogs.

ORR moved the ball down the field incrementally before Desmond Dias ran the ball into the end zone for his second score of the night. The Bulldogs succeeded in a two-point conversion, putting the scoreboard at 34-14, where it stayed as the clock ran down the final few minutes.  

“The kids did a great job, and I’m very proud of their work and effort. We executed what we were supposed to do,” said Head Coach Justin Kogler.

The win advances the team to another championship game against Ashland (8-1) next week.

It’s an exciting time for the Bulldogs.  Stay tuned and come out and watch the next game.
