On Sunday, November 1 the Lexington Bedford Hanscom D Team defeated Lowell with a strong 35-6 victory to end their final game of the season with a bang. With a record of 6 wins and 2 losses, the team is slated for post-season play. Congratulations to the LBH Raiders D Team for making it as far as they did – the first time in 8 years making it to the playoffs!
The D Team’s defensive line was on fire in their last regular season game, and stopped Lowell’s attempts to advance the ball time and time again. Huge tackles by Chris Green-Williams and Shamus Miller and strong defense by Gemain Blanchette-Payne, Jacob Gillig, Nelson Crawford, Russell LeBert, Aaron Kreiter, Owen Brazee, Justin Liberman, Shamus Miller, Finn Sullivan and Maximus Woolumus. Linebackers Lucas Vianna, Isayah Bannister, Rich Fedele, Ryan Cohen and Aidan Pompi were there to consistently step up when needed as well. Aidan Higson had an outstanding Pick 6 on D and the Raiders stands went wild!!
LBH’s offensive line did their job ALL morning long. Jackson Kane, Michael Sullivan, Ryan Ferrari, Chris Woo, Braden Chisolm, Malick Rolland and Lucas Vianna showed up play after play as a unit, allowing QB James Naylor the time to execute the unstoppable plays by Aidan Higson, Ryan Cohen, Rich Fedele and Aidan Pomp. Big TDs by Higson, Pompi and Fedele and an awesome point after by Shamus Miller!!
