The Arlington High School Spy Ponder football team made it 3-0 as it beat Reading, 17-14, on Friday, Sept. 17, while Bishop Fenwick crushed Arlington Catholic, 46-14.

Coach John Dubzinski called the victory a "program changer."

He wrote Sunday, Sept. 29: "We knew on Monday that Reading is a top-notch football program that has been to several super bowls, so this was a huge game for us.

Credits defensive coordinator

"We had a great week of practice, worked hard, developed a pretty good game plan and put the ball in our playmakers' hands."

He credited Coach Jonathan Nascimento, who "has done an unbelievable as the defensive coordinator. One hundred percent of the credit goes to the players in our program for this win. Everybody contributed to this win.

"Seth Coiley and Frank Roche were outstanding on offense. Seth had 168 yards of total offense and Frank had 80 yards rushing with 1 running TD and 1 passing TD.

"The play of the game in my opinion was stopping Reading on the 1-foot line with no time left to end the half. Going in up 10-7 at half was huge for us.  Zach Thomas's field goal in the second quarter ended up being the difference-maker in the game.

"As always, our defense came ready to play. We limited a VERY good offense to only two touchdowns the whole game."
The defense -- composed of Matty Shea, Lucas Hanley, Nick Rose, Kyle Coleman, Lakota Samuels, Pascal Schamber, Zach Thomas, Marco Saenz-Grant, Andrew Cunningham, Seth Coiley and Frank Roche "played like All-Stars the whole game," he wrote.

"This win was a program changer for us. I told the kids before the game that the outcome of this game will teach a life lesson about what can be accomplished when a group of hard-working kids exhibit discipline, commitment and perseverance.  

"As always, we will head back to work on Monday to focus on a Belmont team that scored 27 points against Lexington last week."

Frank Roche found Seth Coiley for the winning score in the third quarter, as AHS beat the No. 4 Rockets. See the box score >> has the AC box score >>
