Well, we had a chilly day at Forges field on Sunday, but it was a great day for football. The Vikings teams went 6 for 9 on the day and off the recaps.
Once again the Vikings D-White team shut out their opponent, Westwood, 33 - 0. The offense scored on a number of running plays with TDs scored by Ty Santos, on a punt blocked by Jordan Petrillo, Colby Randall on a few, Michael Crosby, and Austin Hanlon on a gutsy run with several Westwood defenders trying to pull him down. The defense did well with a great team effort by all. Noted players were Jake Tamulionis, Cody Gosselin, Pat Travers, Michael Larareo, and Collin Moriarity. The last game of the season is at home against Attleboro.
D Silver made the trip to Medway this week and played on of the most exciting games you'll see this season, down three key players this week the kids played their hearts out and should be incredibly proud cuz I know I am. The White offense started the game and got some solid yardage, once again improving upon their performance last week. Noah Golden discovered he has a solid weapon in his stiff arm as he used it to carry the ball and get some well earned yardage. He ran and was blocked for by TE Reilly Whitehouse and the rest of the white line. On the blue offense, the Triple Threat running attack was without their FB this week, so little Matt Costello got his first full game at the position taking the ball up the middle all day and causing a ruckus along side TBs Tim Jennings and Devante Ramos, who both had great days piling up the yardage and showing why they are some of the hardest hitting running backs at the D level. The second half started off with good break away run by the Medway team making it 6-0 after failing to get the conversion. We came right back and put it in with a 50 yard scamper up the middle by Jennings. Medway got the ball back and drove it all the way to the 3 yard line but was stuffed after a great goal line stand on 4th and Goal. With the Vikings offense getting the ball back, we unfortunately got a bobbled handoff that was recovered by Medway for their second touchdown making the game 12-6 in their favor. We spent the whole 4th quarter driving down the field eventually leading to a 1st and goal with less then 2 minutes left in the game. The Medway defense proved they were formidable by not letting us in and on a gutsy play caused the turnover on 4th down and sealed the game. Congratulations to Medway in a hard fought victory. And congratulations to the D Silver team. They left it all on the field and were able to leave the field with smiles on their faces cuz that was a fun game to be a part of. One left boys, lets make it memorable.

This past Sunday the Vikings E-Blue mity-mite team took on a very well coached Easton Wildcats team. As with the Vikings opponent last week, Easton was coming into the contest sporting a 6-0 record. This years E-Blue Vikings squad were also coming into the contest at 6-0. The E-Blue Coaching staff came into this game enjoying an 18 game win streak that dated back to the fall of 2006. In attendance and watching from the Easton sidelines for this one was non other that New England Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel. As the players and coaches made their way onto the field everyone knew that this game was going to be a good one. Know to the Highlights:
It was a windy, cold chilly Sunday morning as both teams trotted onto the field for the opening kick off. The Vikings had won the coin toss and had elected to receive. As the high powered Viking offense made their way onto the field they could feel that the windy conditions may play a factor in their passing game. On their first offensive series QB Kyle Caraher threw a “bomb” to his tight end Shane Gibbons that went for a 40 yard gain. Two minutes into the game the Vikings found themselves inside the 20 yard line of Easton . On the next offensive series the Wildcats took a bite out of the Vikings offense and made them go 4 and out.
On Easton ’s first series on offense they scored quickly on a nice 45 yard run. They then converted on the extra point and led 7-0. The Viking offense answered right back with some nice offensive play of their own. The offense this week was led by running back by committee with running backs Robby Gomes, Danny Lincoln and Ryan O’Neil all seeing time in the backfield. In the second quarter QB Kyle Caraher called his own number on a QB sweep. Kyle was able to reach pay dirt behind key blocks by Tackle Ryan Creager and TE Shane Gibbons. The E-Blue team then converted the x-tra point and both teams went into half time tied at
The second half kickoff was received by the Wildcats. Wildcats return man was able to give his offense great field position as he had a nice run and returned the ball to the Vikings 20 yard line. Two plays later the Wildcats running back put his team up for good 13-7.
Defensive standouts in this one were Kam “with a K” Macfarland, Cam Caraher, Cam St. Croix, Kyle Caraher, Austin Nolan, Josh Whiting, Jake Richards, Jack Daly, Zack Eaton and Zack Greely.
As always, this one was a team effort by all. As the season comes to a close, the coaches want to express what a joy it has been coaching and watching the E-Blue team come together as a “TEAM”
The E-Blue team looks to rebound next week and improve their record on the season to 7-1 as they face Attleborough @ home at Forges Field next Sunday.
C BLUE played against Easton on Sunday and came out with a win by the score of 28-0 to improve to 6-0. Brandon Green scored three TD’s and Ed Ramos scored the other to dominate the offensive game. Nick MacFarland kicked the extra points. The C defense came out strong and did not allow any offensive points from Easton making this their 6th shutout of the season. C Blue is going into the last game of the season against Attleboro with a perfect record.
Hi Guys and Gals,
E Silver ended it's season at home with a hard fought win against Holliston by a score of 7 to 0. E Silver set the tone for the day when, Noah "You Just Know-a He's Gonna Get the Ball" Schulman showed his quick speed and agility on the first play of the game with a fumble recovery. Our defense held strong with a couple of goal line stops against Holliston. Joey "Needles" Neading was injecting pain from his Right Defensive Tackle position. Jimmy "the Hammer" Palmer saw some action at Offensive Left End and pounded the ball up the middle from the running back position. Our only touchdown was scored by Orlando "the Broom" Abreau on a 5 yard sweep to the right and the conversion point with a sweep left. Many of our kids played well that day but I can't mention them all. I did however, accomplish one goal. Every player on E Silver was recognized (at least once) throughout the season on the Plymouth Vikings blog.
I can't believe that the season is over. August 4th seems like it was yesterday!!! 3 months of hard work, discipline and teamwork paid off for an impressive 6 and 2 season for E Silver. I do believe that we greatly exceeded EVERYONE'S expectations. We started the season with 30 players and ended with 20. A couple of kids moved up due to weight, some never showed up to the first practice and some discovered that football wasn't for them. After the game on Sunday, I saw a couple of players with tears in their eyes. They told me that they "didn't want football to be over." Our kid's now know what it's like to finish something that may be hard and not always fun. They discovered what it's like to be part of something bigger than themselves: a TEAM. What a great lesson for life. Somebody once said, "Nothing in life worth fighting for comes easy." I think that Plymouth now has 20 more people that know what that means.
I would like to thank Dan and Karen Cabral, and the rest of the Pop Warner Board for their time, patience and support. Their work does not start on August 1st and end on November 1st., it goes all year long. We are lucky to have such dedicated citizens in our community.
In closing, I'd like to thank Lisa Spinnetti for being our "team photographer," Colettte Schulman for being our "team Mom" and all the parents. Thanks to assistant coaches Fliegel, Hayes, Neading and Dorman for your caring and supervision. A special thanks to Coach Johnnell Fillippini who was sent to help out a guy who never coached before (me). It was soon apparent that my role would soon change to being that of "General Manager" as opposed to "Head Coach." I learned as much, if not more than the kids did from Coach Johnnell !!!! His attention, intenseness and love of the game of football is why 20 kids finished with a record of 6 wins and 2 losses. Thanks again Coach.
