The Braintree freshmen football team brought their ‘A’ game to Herget field today. This young Wamps team, in only the third game, improved to 2-1 on the young season after their second win against the Needham High School freshmen.
It wasn’t just the win that impressed the fans. It was the way this group of players operated together. Mistakes were at a minimum. The blocking was impressive. The defense stopped Needham almost every time. The offense gave more looks & had more plays. The Needham defensive line seemed most of the day to have no idea what was coming at them.
The running game had several weapons. Quarterback Justin Dutcher watched the offensive line open the door for him on a number of occasions. Dirique Richards Brown scored the first touchdown of the game. Brown found open field early in the first quarter and headed for the end zone. His quickness made the rest of the field look like they were standing still watching him. Nick Kadzis also had several runs gaining yards for the Wamps as he crashed into the Rocket defense.
Braintree was a passing threat going most to Keyshaad Dixon. Dixon, the Wamps wide receiver, on a number of occasions would jump feet over double coverage to come down with a catch, including the games second touchdown. WR Liam McGrath made a spectacular mid field catch just before he landed on the turf.
The Wamps also caused two Needham fumbles and recovered them both; while at the same time not turning the ball over at all.
The freshmen Wamps have another tough game next Friday, Sept 28 at 3:45 p.m. in Braintree against Wellesley. Make plans now to come out and cheer for your Braintree Wamps. Admission is free!!!
