Here are the highlights of Framingham Youth Football E1 and E2 team games from this weekend:
E2: After defeating Wayland-Weston last week, the E2 football team went into their game against Milton hoping to kep up the momentum.
On Milton’s first possession, Framingham player Joseph Balboni recovered a Milton fumble on the Framingham 11-yard line. Framingham used this opportunity by striking first with a 90-yard touchdown run by Cody Coleman.
On Milton’s next possession, Framingham forced and recovered another fumble, this time at their 25-yard line. But Framingham failed to score again and Milton finally got on the board with a 25-yard touchdown run.
John Yerardi intercepted a Milton pass to end the first half, and the score at halftime at was 7-6 Milton.
The second half started with a bang, a 60-yard touchdown run on the kickoff by Coleman. But the touchdown was called back because of a penalty. Framingham couldn’t convert on that series, and had to give up the ball to Milton.
Framingham defense shut down Milton until Milton scored another touchdown a couple of series’ later in the game. Framingham tried to score again, but couldn’t, and Milton added on yet another score making the score 21-6. And that was the final score.
Framingham players gave a great effort. Coleman played a great game on both sides of the ball, and Balboni and Jackson Zanella made some good tackles on defense. Even though the score was far apart, it was actually a very close game.
E1: Coming off a huge win last week, Framingham was looking to make a good last impression this week during their final home game.
The first half was full of great defensive plays. Mason Moy had a great tackle and Heriberto De Jesus and Richard Boston Jr. sacked the Milton quarterback for a loss.
Quarterback Jamar Williams connected with receiver Akye Boston for a long, 49-yard pass. Two plays later Framingham was on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run by Jamar Williams.
In the next series, Williams intercepted a Milton pass and returned it for 20 yards. Williams added on another score later in the quarter. Angel Montanez sacked the Milton quarterback and forced a fumble and Michael Tolson had an interception to close the first half. The score after the first half was 13-0 Framingham.
The Flyer defense continued to shut down Milton, as they forced one more fumble and Vincent Yeradi intercepted a pass by the Milton QB. Williams added on another score, this one for 50 yards and Framingham won 19-0.
Akye Boston also had some great rushes. Cory Hemmer, Montanez, De Jesus, and Waldeney Santos Jr. played great on defense.
