Hoosac Valley football team rolls to win over Pathfinder

Posted

THORNDIKE — It was a beautiful day for football, but a storm hit Saint Joseph's park, home of the Pathfinder Pioneers. The Hoosac Valley Hurricanes blew away the Pioneers with a 56-0 victory in week one of the Western Massachusetts football season.

They say lightning can't strike twice, however, it struck three times in the form of Liam Feeley. The Hoosac Valley senior had just three carries on the afternoon, but finished with 155 yards and three touchdowns.

"I wish I could keep that streak going, but I am just going to keep trying my best," Feeley said of his 50 yards per carry average. "It was great to come out here in game one of senior year, it means the most. Everyone was ready to play. The offensive line, I mean, I have never seen bigger holes in my life."

The story of the afternoon was Hoosac's dominance of the trenches. The Hurricanes had enough time to find success on the ground and in the air.

"Side-to-side, everyone in the trenches did a great job," first-year coach Mark Harrington said. "The running backs were able to get to the second line because of what the line did."

Starting quarterback Carson Meczywor finished the afternoon with two completions including a perfect pass to Travis Dozier down the left sideline, which was good for a 27-yard touchdown.

"We were pumped early and just wanted to keep eating," Meczywor said. "We can pass and run. I think we have one of the best lines in Berkshire County, it was a great team win."

Dozier had a huge impact on both sides of the ball as he added an interception of Pathfinder's Jordan Talbot, which set up a nine-yard touchdown run from Aaron Bush.

Bush took over as Hoosac's quarterback and delivered touchdown passes to Logan Davis and Cole Desroches. Defensively, Aiden Koczela, Blake Trumble, Jake Mucci, Joe Delmolino and Nolan Roberts led a defense that gave Pioneer fits all afternoon. The Hurricanes not only held the Pioneers scoreless, but also kept them out of the red zone until the fourth quarter. The icing on the cake came from Mucci and Trumble with just seconds left in the game's first half.

With Talbot looking for an open receiver, he didn't hear the Jaws theme as Mucci tackled Pathfinder's quarterback from behind for a sack fumble. Trumble scooped, ran 31 yards, and scored for Hoosac Valley's sixth first-half touchdown, making the score 50-0.

"I was excited sitting on the bus because everyone was quiet and focused," Harrington said. "They needed to play hard and did. I just think it was a great effort and they took it to them right away."

The Hurricanes look to build the dominant performance as they travel to Commerce on Friday night. Kickoff is scheduled 8 p.m.

"They come out and work hard," Harrington said. "If they come out and execute, no matter the level of competition, you're going to score and win."
