The Crushers won the GYFL Junior Championship, gutting out a tough win against a robust Mavs teams, as Nicholas Nostro, Luke Tocci, Colin Falla, Nicholas Mussolini, Jr., and Wim McCarthy all had standout days. Nostro got the Crushers first score with a 70-yard scorcher, blasting past half-a-dozen Mav defenders thanks to blocking by Tocci, Mussolini, Falla and Aiden Brehm. His next touchdown was a 16-yard, human highlight reel as he broke 7 tackles to get into the endzone. The 11-play drive was led by QBs Ryan Strassel and James Mora with much of the yardage coming from RB Falla behind big blocks Gabe Dunleavy, Ryan Nordin, Mickey Petrone, George Lindsay, Daniel Tolentino, Joey Mitchell, Luke Vizzo, Braden Vizzo and Patrick Gonnelli. Nostro sealed the win with another, 55-yard score. Other notable offensive plays included McCarthy’s 41 yards to keep the ball in Crusher hands, as did Jake Natale while Geno Chimblo provided added blocking.  On defense, Tocci had an outstanding day in the backfield intercepting one pass, knocking down another and making 6 tackles to keep a powerful Mavs running game in check. Henry Schmedlen added to that with his own pass block and interception. Brad Wallace and Aidan Williams also provided strong play at DB and Safety. The Crusher front line of Shane O’Connor, Richie McMurray and Santago Parra forced the Mavs outside most of the game where Mussolini, Jr., was waiting getting 10 tackles on the day.

The Mavericks did a good job of moving the ball on the ground against a tough Crusher D as  Noah Park and Noah Steele combined for most of the Mavericks running offense. Defensively the Mavs kept the high powered Crusher offense to only one score in the first half. Nash Edwards, Alexander Mrdelja and Grant Goldring all turned in strong performances accounting for most of the defensive tackles.
