Reading Rocket C Team Battles Saugus in 14-13 Loss

  • September 19, 2016

Reading Pop Warner C-Team suffered its first loss of the season at the hands of a physical Saugus team 14-13. All-purpose back Colby Goodchild led the Rockets offensively with 187 yards rushing and 1TD. The Rockets running game found its groove behind tremendous blocking from Brady Swanson, Michael Fabiano and Eamon Centrella. Jesse Doherty continues to be a productive red-zone target in the Rockets passing game as he caught his second TD pass in as many weeks. Doherty also added a point after with a leaping catch in the end zone.

Reading’s defense once again played a solid all-around game receiving great tackling from Ben Hennessey, Joe Puglielli & Evan Pennucci. For the second straight week, when the game was on the line and the Rockets needed the ball back to have a chance in the 4th quarter, the defense stood tall.

The C-Team Rockets look to get back on track this week when they battle a talented Braintree squad on Sunday at 11am at Birch Meadow field.
