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.

Selling or Buying a Home During the Holidays

How do you sell or buy a home in the last two months of the year?   The holidays are  the time of year when we think of getting together with family and friends and hunkering down at home by a cozy fire.  Typically, the last two months of the year show less listings coming on the market and less buyers out there looking.  

Sellers do not want to worry about showings during the busy holiday season and may think to wait until the New Year to put their home on the market.  Buyers are busy with the holidays and do not want to worry about moving during the holiday season.

All that being said, this time of year can also be a great time of year to buy or sell a home!  For sellers, homes always look cozy and warm dressed up for the holidays.  Less is more so the home looks cozy but not cluttered.  There may be less homes on the market so competition is up.  Holiday buyers are generally more serious.  There may be a specific situation that requires a move and they may have a time frame to find a house.

Buyers can also be reassured that sellers are also excited to sell their home.  If they weren’t serious, they would be waiting until the first of the year to start the selling process.  There may be some reason, they need to sell as soon as they can.

So, don’t worry about the end of the year market.  This can be a great time for buying and selling!

New Halloween Celebrations in the Tri-Town

 It was a nice comfortable, quiet night for Halloween this year.  There were two new events in the Tri-Towns for Halloween night this year.

The Rochester Woman’s Club held a new event on Halloween night at the Clubhouse on Marion Rd.  Since the Plumb Corner trick-or-treat event was discontinued this year,  the Woman’s Club decided to host their own Trick-or-treat night.  The women decorated the clubhouse and sat outside with a bonfire and bags of candy for the trick-or-treaters.  It was a great community event!

Another new event was held at Ned’s Point Lighthouse in Mattapoisett!  The ground floor of the lighthouse was opened up to visitors by the Onset/Marion US  Coast Guard Auxiliary flotilla on Halloween night.  For the first time, the lighthouse was opened up for tours this summer.  Many visitors have never been inside the lighthouse and the tours were very popular.  Only the bottom of the lighthouse was open last night but there were pirates and plenty of candy added to the event!  They are hoping to repeat this at Christmas time.

5 Tips to Launch Your Real Estate Career

You’ve just passed your real estate exam and are ready to start your new career.  Here are 5 tips to help you launch.

1. Treat it like a Job. Go to work at 9 am (or whatever your designated “working hours” are) and start your day. Offer to help with what is needed. Dress and act professionally. Act “AS IF”.  Sign up for uptime and be available when the phone rings.  Start your marketing strategy with daily prospecting calls.  Send out your postcards announcing your new profession to the neighborhood.  Start handing out your business calls.

2. Follow a training Plan. Whatever your sales training is, do it the way it is laid out for you. Don’t get creative or skip corners. If your company does not provide a training program, use other resources to follow one. Make your car a traveling classroom. Shadow one of the more experienced realtors in the company.  Offer to help them at an Open House or showing appointment.  It is a great learning experience.

3. Join a Committee at the Board of Realtors. Become embedded in your professional board. Take advantage of what State and National Associations of Realtors has to offer. Treat other Realtors as your A+ customers. Go to events!


4. Volunteer on a Local Level. Become an integral part of your community. Southcoast- Serves ( has many volunteer opportunities if you don’t have any favorites. There are many opportunities to help out in your community.  Volunteer at school or sporting events.  It will help you get noticed.  Wear your company swag so people will be aware of your new profession.


5. Become Dedicated and Informed. Work toward certifications, Follow Real Estate News through sources like Inman News, Bloomsberg, and MAR and NAR. Get on their email news flashes.


Please contact us at Agent Rising with any questions you may have. We can help you jump start your career and get you noticed.
