Football vs. Billerica
The Burlington vs Billerica game was a typical battle for both of these teams. With the much larger school Billerica ranked 7th in the state being a heavy favorite Burlington still managed to almost pull out a victory but the last drive stalled and the game ended Billerica 35-Burlington 27. The game started with plenty of fireworks as the first play of the season saw Burlington's Sophomore Tailback Marcus O'daih go 74 yards for a touchdown and had Burlington out to a quick lead. The Gatorade player of the year last year Quarterback Nick Laspada from Billerica was the difference all night as he managed to make big play after big play and threw 3 touchdowns and ran for another. Nick Ciardi From Burlington had a fine night with 4 catches and an interception as Burlington's Quarterback Gregg Sheridan hung tough running and throwing well all night for us. Kyle Shields added 2 touchdowns while Marcus O'daih showed huge signs of a very bright future with 11 carries for 157 yards and a touchdown for Burlington. Jonathan Dube, Dalton Barrucci and Joe Hoffman played well on the line for Burlington's defense as We came up just short in this one. All in all it was a great effort by the huge underdog Burlington as we look to get our first win this week vs Arlington another very large Division 1 School.
