Belmont started off the game strong, completeing passes and continually moving
the chains. It was not until Belmont reached the redzone that the Warrior’s defense
stepped up. Though Wakefield prevented a Belmont touchdown, Belmont was able to
score a field goal for the first points of the game. The first quarter ended with a score of
Belmont 3, Wakefield 0. The Warrior’s started off the second quarter with a bang. Senior
Greg Ledin intercepted a Belmont pass and was able to return the ball to the two yard
line. From there Senior Vinny DeSciscio was easily able to run the ball into the endzone
for a Wakefield touchdown. With a successful extra point the score was then Wakefield
7, Belmont 3. Later in the quarter, Senior Vinny DeSciscio was able to break through
the line and run for a near 50 yard touchdown run. With another successful extra point

3. Belmont’s hopes of scoring again in the half were denied when Senior Charnjit Singh
made an interception to end the half.
Though the Warrior defense held strong in the second half, Belmont was able to
score another field goal late in the third to put the score at Wakefield 20, Belmont 6. In
the fourth quarter, the Warrior defense was able to prevent any further Belmont scoring.
Following a fumble recovery for Wakefield, Senior Vinny DeSciscio was once again able
to find his way to the endzone to score for Wakefield. With another missed extra point
attempt, the score was Wakefield 26, Belmont 6. After Belmont’s turnover on downs,
Wakefield looked to run down the clock with their running offense. Following a 1st down
