Blue Pride won the TYF Super Mights Championship
Red Pride 13, Green Pride 6
In a tight defensive battle for all the marbles, Red Pride captured the Mighty Mights division championship over Green Pride. It was Green’s third game of the day, defeating both Silver and Blue to advance to the championship. Cameron Thompson got Green’s defense going early with a big interception in the end zone to keep Red off the scoreboard. Jackson Goldman also shined defensively for Green, pulling several flags and also returning an interception for a touchdown for Green’s lone score on the day. Philip Lombardi has several great runs for Green on the offensive side of the football.
Hard fought game featuring some great defense on both sides. DJ Bourque had an interception in the end zone early on to keep Red from scoring. Jackson Goldman had another interception for Green this time resulting in Greens only touchdown. Goldman also had many good flag pulls. Offensively Green could never get anything going even with some good running by Philip Lombardi. In the end the 3rd game of the morning proved to be too much for the Green Machine.
Orange Pride 20, Silver Pride 12
In a consolation match, Orange Pride had some spectacular passing plays en route to its victory over Silver. James Brooks threw a pair of touchdowns for Orange, while Andrew Rider, Banjamin Barrasso and Jared Mirisola crossed the goal line for the victories. Dominic Capuano had a great game offensively, while Miller Brooks, Michael Donahoe, and Nathan Galanis had great games on defense. On the Silver side, Evan Delon was once again the star offensively, scoring both touchdowns on the day. David Benassi and Mateus Fraga played big on defense for Silver, while Braydon Moran pulled off a great run down the stretch.
Blue Pride 52, Red Pride 18

It was an all-around team effort for the champs, with terrific output all season long from the likes of Edward Galante, Jimmy Holmes, Justin Magee, Drew Nestor, Michael Parent, Drew Rennell, Ryan Sorrentino, and Matthew Tramonte.
