PYO Saints vs PYO Falcons
In the main event of gridiron fury in Parkville’s full tackle football program, the PYO Saints faced a strong and determined Falcon squad. Vincent “the Enforcer” Delgatto had the honor of kicking off for the PYO Falcons and the battle began.
It became evident from the first clash of each line that real estate would not come cheap. The Saints’ line Jonathan “Tombstone” Hockfeld, Daniel “Bone Breaker” Dasaro, Christian “Hammer Time” Cosme, Mousa Tous and Angelo Fuschetto made it clear they were not going to yield an inch without a fight.
The Falcons responded with equal resolve and hammered them into Parkville turf with every snap of the ball. Alphonse “Meat Grinder” Russo, Patryk “Freight Train” Szustka, Delgatto and Angelo “Smok’n” Gonzalez formed a solid wall of defense that stopped the Saints dead in their tracks.
Well something had to give and when it did, Robert “Pay Dirt” Lay took full advantage and charged for glory, breaking several tackles along the way. He entered golden soil to draw first blood. Alex Katten was called upon to kick for the extra point and eight points were on the scoreboard.
The Saints’ cheering didn’t last too long. The Falcons regrouped and came back with a vengeance, launching a fierce attack that put Jadin “Ice Man” Goodman on the golden brick road to pay dirt. Goodman muscled his way through every Saint defense and scored the last touchdown of the game. Delgatto tied the score 8-all with his textbook extra point kick. At the end of the first half, the score was 8-up and that’s how it remained for the rest of the contest.
The score might not have changed but that didn’t stop both teams from rising to the challenge and providing outstanding performances. Jason “Torpedo” Hockfeld (fumble recovery with five seconds remaining), Marco Alicea, Jhomar Bennett (interception), Joseph Desaro (fumble recovery), Gerry Haak, Jacob Gil, Andrew Sanders, Parker Edelman and Jason Porcaro of the Saints rose to the occasion and gave the Falcons a run for the money.
The Falcons fought fire with fire and exceeded everyone’s expectations. Some of their aggressive players were Robert “Sun Dance” Ferraioli (awesome interception), Joshua Vega, Robert Knapp (great interception), Joseph Seykora, Tyler DiPietro and Steven Navarro.
