For a time in their second home game of the year, Westerly had far less time with the ball on offense than Mt. Pleasant. They had only played two offensive snaps and gained only 6 yards. Usually, this is a sign that the offense is unable to produce.

This was not the case, because Westerly did not need offensive drives to score early on. A low snap during the first Mt. Pleasant punt gave Westerly time to block the kick. Rocco Cillino then took the ball all the way to the one yard line, where on the first offensive play of the game, Tristan Turano scored his first of six touchdowns.

Once Mt. Pleasant got the ball again, they gave it right back to the Bulldogs on the first play of the drive when Jon Brutcher intercepted the ball for the first time. He would pick the Kilties off two more times.

Once Turano put the icing on the cake with a five yard touchdown run, the Bulldogs had a 14-0 lead after only 30 seconds with the ball.

What was perhaps Turano’s biggest play of the game was not even a running play. Turano received the snap, but rather than running the ball, he found Brutcher, who had a 49 yard touchdown run in the previous drive, in the end zone. What ensued was a 30 yard touchdown. Coach Maranda said that the Bulldogs had practiced this play many times because Mt. Pleasant had an eight man defensive line to stuff the running game.

Thanks to two Turano touchdowns, one of which was assisted by a superb block from Peter Fusaro, Westerly led 42-0 at the half.

Once the Bulldogs returned to the field after yet another superb performance by the band and dance line, the crowd that showed up for the St. Jude’s Children Hospital game was treated to two more touchdowns.

The game ended at a final score of 54-0 and a total of seven touchdowns.

The undefeated Bulldogs will next face Mt. Hope, who just beat undefeated West Warwick team this week, which should make an interesting matchup.
