Local players help Gator's Pub team capture fall volleyball championship Lincoln Lions' U10 football team downs Woonsocket, takes BVYFC Super Bowl FALL RIVER, Mass. – The undefeated Lincoln Lions' U10 football team captured the BVYFC (Blackstone Valley Youth Football Conference) Super Bowl champion- ship by posting a 13-6 victory over the Woonsocket Redskins on Sunday morning at Durfee High School's Mac Aldrich Field. Behind the play of running backs Jeremy Siedi and Carson Mellen and a strong defensive effort, Lincoln played its toughest game of the sea- son. The Lions advance to the New England Regionals and will take on the Central Mass. Association's state champion. "I was proud to see how our team showed strength and togetherness," said Lions head coach Eric Borelli. "No opponent came this close (to us) all season. My hat is off to the Redskins." Unfortunately, the news wasn't as good for the Lions' U11 team, which was making its third Super Bowl appearance in four years, but suffered a 26-13 loss to the CLCF Chiefs. The Lions received excellent play from Dashaun Raczkowski, John Nicoll, Sean Clifford, and the offensive and defensive lines. "We worked very hard all season," said Lions head coach Brad Nicoll. "We had a goal and we fell short; however, I am proud of every player and coach on the team. The score is not reflective of how hard we played and our kids left it all on the field." "It's good to see our program grow," said Borelli, who is also the president of the Lions' organization. "At one time, if you had one team make it, that was an accomplishment, but we have had one, two, and (sometimes) three teams playing on Super Bowl Sunday during the last four seasons."
