Stonington closes with victory

STONINGTON — Justin McKenna ran for three long touchdowns to lead the Stonington Junior Pee Wees to a season-ending 27-12 win against Dartmouth (Mass.) in Ocean State Pop Warner Football League play on Sunday.

The Bears (3-5) just missed qualifying for the four-team playoffs that begin next Sunday.

Stonington scored a touchdown in each quarter, but led only 14-12 at halftime. The Bears shut out Dartmouth in the second half.

McKenna ran 55 yards to paydirt in the first quarter, 40 in the second and 40 again in the fourth. Daequon Price scored on a 8-yard run in the third quarter to cap off a 65-yard drive.

Lucas Huesman, Aiden Borsher and Dorian White each scored an extra point on a conversion run. Huesman had a 40-yard run in the third quarter.

Kyle Sullivan recovered a fumble in the second quarter. Owen Williams intercepted a pass in the third quarter when the Cowboys only led by two. Jacob Yackley and Nakhi Snyder had six and four tackles, respectively.

STONINGTON — The Bears (4-5) have qualified for next Sunday’s playoffs despite the loss.

Seedings for the four-team playoffs and sites and times will be announced early this week.

After a scoreless first quarter, Dartmouth sandwiched two touchdowns around one for Stonington to gain a 13-7 halftime lead. Another TD in the third quarter put the game out of reach.

The Bears’ only touchdown was scored by Travis Pacheco on a 20-yard pass play from Lennox Deer, who then added the extra point on a conversion run.

Deer rushed for close to 100 yards. Ben Dellacono had 60. Julia Moore recovered a fumble on defense.


Bears make playoffs

STONINGTON — The Pee Wees won by forfeit on Sunday against a Dartmouth (Mass.) team that had disbanded two weeks ago.

Stonington (5-3) has qualified for the four divisional playoffs that begin next Sunday at sites and times to be determined. The Super Bowls of all three divisions will be hosted by Stonington on Sunday, Nov. 10.
