The Senior Gators prevailed as GYFL Seniors Champions in dominating fashion as the first score came when Max Warden connected with Dillon Stephens on a 29-yard post pass. Then Warden hit Hudson Hausmann on 10-yard pass in the corner of the end zone for the second touchdown. Stephens added the extra point. Later Warden was at it again with a 5-yard touchdown run on a QB draw. The Gators final score came on defense late in the fourth when George Vomvolakis picked off a screen pass taking it to the house from 50 yards out. Chase Smith added the extra point. Warden, Hausmann, Smith, Guy Germain and Stephens paced the ground and air game.. The push up front was driven by Peter and George Vomvolakis, Murphy Watner, Maximus Gabelli, Reed Eddy, Owen Hoffman, Max Colella, Jack Carroll, Topher Martinelli, Dylan Botoff and Smith. The Gator defense was dominating pitching the shutout led by Barrett Pennington, Warden, Peter and George Vomvolakis, Stephens, Watner, Eddy, Luke Homan, Daniel McGuire, Lucas Marks, Matthew Colella, Austin Rinello, Michael Nogaki, Harrison Castelli and Travis Wilson who were either in tight pass coverage, sacking the QB, and making plays around or behind the line of scrimmage. A sincere Gator thank you to coaches Tom Wilson, Michael Gabelli, John Vomvolakis, Don McGuire and Ray Martinelli for all of their hard work and dedication to the boys.

The Glenville Mavericks played hard but came up short to Riverside Gators in the GYFL Sr. Championship game. The Mavericks kept close in the first half with tough defense but the Gators got rolling in second half and was able to take home the Championship. A positive note for the Mavericks is that most of the team played in back to back championship games. Some even made it there last 3 years.

The Mavericks scored first with a sustained drive, capped off by a 20-yard touchdown run by Dylan Kellan. The Mavs wouldn’t score again until the fourth quarter, but then did it twice — first with a passing blitz by QB Rocco Grillo, fas he threw a 20-yard pass to Danny Manuli and then a 35-yard pass to Brandon Auguste for the scorel Grillo added a run for a 2-point conversion. The running and passing game was helped out with strong blocking from EJ Perez, Cooper Edwards, John Tsaparas, Luke Snisky, Chase Lowthert and Michael Asprinio. The Mavericks ended their scoring for the day with a scoop 6 when Kellan stripped the ball from a Bulldog running back. The ball bounced directly in Cooper Edwards hands and he ran 15-yards for the Mavericks last score. The Mavericks shut out was helped by great defense from Edwards, Perez, Gavyn Gennarelli, Tony Ciccarelli, Jack Sepot, Andrue Borelli, Chris Marinaccio and Tsaparas. Gennarelli intercepted a Bulldog pass late in the game to seal the Maverick win.             

In a tough, one-sided loss to end the season, the defense led by second year seniors Justin Norton, Kyle Allen, Griffin Galletta, and Iggy Pieteyka were a bright spot, holding the Mavericks to just six points through 2 quarters.  Max Marek, Max Loffredo, Adam Kim and Kyle Ebanks also contributed on defense. Jake Stefanowicz, Max Marek and Chase Inesta gave notable performances on offense.

Despite excellent play calling and crafty moves on offense by the Generals, the Crushers were able to advance thanks to the nimble running of Nicholas Nostro, Jake Natale, Wim McCarthy, Colin Falla and Aiden Brehm.  Nostro ran for 142 yards and 3 touchdowns on the day. Natale earned his own touchdown when he burst through for a 70-yard score after a handoff from QB Ryan Strassel, breaking multiple tackles to do it. Big blocks up front by Richie McMurray, Gabe Dunleavy, Shane O’Connor, Nicholas Mussolini, Jr., Daniel Tolentino, Ryan Nordin, George Lindsay, Geno Chimblo, Patrick Gonelli, Santiago Parra, Mickey Petrone, and Luke and Braden Vizzo, opened up the running lanes.

Falla had 4 tackles including 2 sacks, one with Henry Schmedlen who had 3 tackles on the day and 2 for a loss. Parra, Mora and McMurray added 4 each. O’Connor, Mussolini, McCarthy and Aidan Williams tacked two onto that.

The Offensive line did well against a very strong Crusher defense. Defensively, the Generals had great play from Matthew Huang,  Eli Himelstein, Jack Jedlicka, Ehrhart, Lavin and Teo Pita who added another interception in the playoffs!

In a rainy, hard-fought, defensive struggle, Justin Norton and Kyle Allen set the tone for the Bulldogs with their stout line play. Chaste Inesta had 3 big tackles on the day, all for lost yardage by the Gators.  In addition to an interception that rounded out the first half, Jake Stefanowicz made his presence felt on offense as the lead blocker for Max Marek’s overtime touchdown run. On the last play of extra time, Justin Norton forced a Gator fumble which was recovered by Griffin Galletta to end the game.

The Gators played their hearts out led by lights out defensive play holding the Bulldogs at bay for four quarters.. Their efforts were driven by the play of Dillon Stephens, Peter and George Vomvolakis, Murphy Watner, Reed Eddy, Barrett Pennington, Lucas Marks, Hudson Hausmann, Max Warden, Matthew Colella, Austin Rinello, Chase Smith, Harrison Castelli and Travis Wilson who were making plays all over the field.

In a dogfight of a game where both teams left everything on the field, the Crushers won in overtime behind the gutsy performances of George Minchin, Chris Takita, Sebastian Parra, John McHugh and Dylan Brehm. Defensively, the Crushers couldn’t have played any better as Minchin repeatedly knocked down passes, thwarting Raider drives, despite being outsized by the receiver. Takita and Parra kept the Raiders on their backs all day, with 15 combined tackles, 8 of those for loss and six QB pressures to force incomplete passes. Every Crusher came up big on defense as MIchael Breheney and Victor Bejarano stopped sure touchdowns, while Kaine Rama, Vincent Smario, Kyle Bassalik, Gabe Erceg, McHugh and Brehm made big tackles to nullify every positive yardage play the Raiders made, stopping four, fourth down attempts. Jett Norlin, Jimmy Flinn, and Breheney provided outstanding pass defense. On offense, blocking made the difference as Hunter Ehret and Marco Malagisi protected the outside to let QB McHugh complete 3 of 6 passes on the day. Brehm got the only touchdown that mattered when Bejarano and Bassalik opened a huge hole, then lineman David Virella threw a key block near the endzone to allow Brehm to stuff his way across the goal line. Brehm used sheer willpower to get the extra point.  The Crushers sealed the game when Minchin and Breheney knocked down a pass on fourth down to end a very exciting game.

The Senior BANC Raiders defense was lights out, as Anthony Perreira made several tackles for a loss and Alex Flook came in with strong form tackling the entire game.  Donte Adams’ interception stopped the Crushers passing game from progressing down field and a gang of red jerseys swarmed on every play. On offense, Jaden Smith had yet another great day on the ground, as he was able to run hard downfield and continuously break tackles.  Connor Jones and Alex Flook connected for a long completion. Jones also connected with Adorian Campbell up the middle for a big gain. Excellent blocking from Nick Aravides provided great opportunity for the BANC offense throughout the entire game.
