Wakefield, MA–Wakefield’s Homecoming Game was a dissapointment after hosting Lexington, who dominated the second half, and left Landrigan Field with a win. The Warriors scored first, but wouldn’t find the endzone for the remainder of the game. Lexington, having been down 7-0 at the start of the second half came back with some hard hitting plays and finished the game with a solid win of 20-7.
No score was put up in the first quarter and there were a lot of turnovers after fourth down. However, Wakefield did have some signifigant plays. Early in the first, Senior Spencer Meehan recovered a fumble to put the ball in Wakefield’s hands. Wakefield’s defensive line also proved a huge asset during the game. They were able to push Lexington back on numerous occasions throughout the first quarter.
Some great group tackles were made to limit Lexington’s yard gain. Later in the second, Senior Vinny DeSciscio came up with a huge touchdown run for Wakefield. The extra point was then made by Senior Connor O’ Brien. These first points of the game left Wakefield in the lead 7-0 at the half.
Early in the third Lexington recovered a Wakefield fumble. Lexington then went on to score a touchdown and field goal, tying the score at 7-7.
The Warriors had then tried to answer this with some big plays in the fourth. Early on, Senior Anthony Fabiano sacked Lexington’s quarterback. That didn’t stop Lexington from putting up some big plays. They then scored a touchdown and went on to score again at the end of the fourth. Lexington came out strong in the second half and out played Wakefield on almost every aspect. The game finshed with a Lexington win, 20-7.
Next Saturday the Warriors travel to Winchester for a 3:00pm game time.
