PAWTUCKET — The Stonington Pee Wee Bears lost 26-7 to the Warwick Patriots in an Ocean State Pop Warner Football League playoff semifinal game on Sunday.

Third-seeded Stonington (5-4) was eliminated. Second-seeded Warwick advances to the Super Bowl on Sunday.

The Bears scored on the first play of the second quarter on a 4-yard run by Marquis Jackson on a wedge play. The Bears went up 7-0 when Jackson made a conversion run on the same play up the middle.

The Patriots responded with three touchdowns in the quarter to take a 19-7 halftime lead.

The Bear defense stiffened in the second half, led by Alexander Riemann (end/linebacker), Aliza Bell (safety/noseguard), Riley Burnside (cornerback/safety), Noah Hertlein (tackle) and Charlie Bresnahan (end/linebacker).

Jackson totaled 50 yards rushing. He also caught a 15-yard pass from Burnside in the Bears’ scoring drive.
