Balls out!! Mystic Valley will recover this fumble on their 14 yard line


Pierce marched the Eagles up the field expertly using passes to Robbie Cummings and passes to and runs by Jayden Jean. The Eagles made several big third and long plays as they marched downfield with ever growing urgency as time ticked away. The Eagles reached pay dirt when Pierce ran a quarterback keeper and raced to the corner of the field diving for the end zone pylon just ahead of the Dorchester defender tying the game. Pierce’s number was called again on the conversion and he took the ball hard into the middle of the line and just made it over the goal line to give the Eagles the lead.


Dorchester tried to mount a last minute drive of their own but had difficulty throwing long passes in the very windy conditions. The game effectively ended when on fourth and four Mystic Valley’s defense rose up and dropped Dorchester’s quarterback for a loss. All that was left was to run out the clock and celebrate the first MIAA Semi-final win in the history of Mystic Valley athletics.
After the game Head Coach was very happy with his team’s performance citing the outstanding play of Robbie Cummings, Trevor Bonaccorsi, Sydney Guerrier and Jethro Charles on defense. “They were spectacular!” He went on to say that this was: “A great win for our program and the school community. Quitting is just not in these kids’ DNA. There was ample opportunity for them to chalk it up as not being their day and to pack it in and be proud of their season but they really refused to go away. I can't tell you how privileged I feel to coach a group like this. To stop a big physical team like Dorchester on 4th and inches and then drive the field for a last minute score to win just shows the type of poise and resolve the kids have, I couldn't be happier for them. They deserve all the credit in the world.”

After the game, Coach Mike Kenney said: “I thought our team played really aggressively throughout the game despite playing against boys (PMA fielded a co-ed team). They did a great job sticking to our game plan and executing the plays we worked on. Bryanna Cimmetti had 4 saves and was an anchor in the back all game long directing the defense. Meghan Foley was a beast again in the middle. We are at our best when she gets free and sets people up.”
