It was two out of three this past week for the Nashua PAL Force:

NASHUA 8U TOPS MILFORD

Nashua stayed unbeaten, sparked by a shutout defense led by linebackers Adam Collier, Tobias Burtsell, Savian Cruz, Ezra Mitchell, and Javi Segovia.

It was a close game at halftime but a TD run in the third quarter by Leo Desfosses opened up some breathing room for the Force. Jace Gallego had a long touchdown run in the third quarter which put the game virtually out of reach for the Milford Spartans.

NASHUA 10U 32,

LACONIA 0

This was 3-2 Nashua’s second shutout of Laconia, this time on a neutral field in Manchester.

Nashua’s offense was led by quarterback Dharyus Sisay and running back Jordan Toribio. Sisay scored two touchdowns on long QB keeper runs and had three TD long catch-and-run TD passes to Toribio. Dominic Fantozzi and Deiondre Sisay both added the extra points on touchdown runs to contribute.

Owen Gagnon and Deiondre Sisay both had long runs from scrimmage and Tyson Hoang had two fumble recoveries as well.

Also playing well was an offensive line centered by Bishop Kearns and supported by guards Paul O’Brien, Victor Lavoie, and tackles Nick Acevedo and Ashton Carron.

Of course, Nashua’s defense had a superb game as David Lago recorded several sacks and Tyson Hoang was also all over the field making huge stops.

Among others helping out were Richard Labrada, Aiden Smith-Nightingale, Kayden Geddes, Avri Ferro Lavoie, Levi Mitchell, and Vincenzo Valenta.
