Marlborough Wildcats win AYF Central Mass. Super Bowl

Marlborough – The sixth-grade Marlborough Wildcats remained undefeated (12-0) by beating the sixth-grade Shrewsbury Patriots Nov. 4 in a hard-fought 7-6 defensive struggle in the American Youth Football (AYF) Central Mass. Super Bowl.

After giving up a first-half touchdown pass to Shrewsbury, Marlborough bounced back soon after when Lou Vigeant blocked the Patriots” kick (2 points under AYF rules). This play would loom large for the Wildcats.

Behind 6-0 at the half, Marlborough held Shrewsbury and forced them to punt. On the ensuing drive, the Wildcats, led by the strong running of Thiago Tolentino and Dominic Carter, marched down the field and scored a touchdown on a 10-yard Carter run.

Starting with a great kickoff by Christian Basquiat that pinned the Patriots deep in their own territory, Marlborough buckled down on defense and controlled the remainder of the game. Key plays included a big tackle by Ryan Kirsch and a one-handed interception by Trevor Nutt that ended Shrewsbury's last drive.

The Wildcats advance to the State championship at Leominster High School versus a tough Framingham team.
