Senior & Junior Bulldogs Shutout Wildcats
The Rutherford Senior Bulldogs (12 &13 year olds) prevail once again to defeat Carlstadt/ East Rutherford 18-0. With the aid of the wide-open lanes formed by the Bulldog's (7-0) offensive line, consisting of Owen Fernandez, David Rojas, Diego Gonzalez, and Nick Lora, Cole Goumas fills up the stat sheet for a second straight week. Cole ran the ball beyond the goal line twice for two Rutherford scores and over 100 total yards rushing in this campaign. Goumas stood out on defense as well, making critical plays alongside Nick Lora. Tyan Ward, Devin Burgos, David Rojas, and Owen Fernandez stepped up big in the trenches at defensive line, driving their team to a shutout. While Burgos played exceptional on the D-line. He can also wreak havoc with the ball in hand at Full Back. He managed to score on a 10-yard rush for the final touchdown of the game, placing Rutherford up by 18. Big win for Rutherford, as the Bulldogs continue to gain momentum entering the latter parts of the year. The RJF&C Juniors (10 & 11 year olds) improved their record to 5-1 with a 26-0 win over division rivals Carlstadt/East Rutherford. The Bulldogs set the tone on defense first as D-linemen Troy Waddell, Angelo Pizza, Andrew Ochojski, Nicholas Ford and Myles Balchan pressured the Wildcat backfield.Balchan ended the drive on fourth down with a sack. The Bulldogs came out and scored quickly on offense with Waddell, Pizza, Ford, Kellen Caughey, Ochojski, Vincent DeNunzio and Evan Diaz blocking the way. Balchan connected with DeNunzio for a 40 yard TD pass putting the Bulldogs up early. Dmitri Paskas split the uprights for the PAT making it 8-0 Rutherford. Paskas then recovered a Bulldog onside kick giving the offense the ball on the Wildcat 45 yard line. This time it was Brewton taking it to the house 45 yards for another Bulldog score making it 14-0 'Dogs. The Wildcats could not hold back the Bulldog defense as linebackers Emmett Carney, Paskas, and Bonagura attacked the backfield. D-backs Rusty Snyder, George Brewton, and Christopher Kasperan locked on to the Wildcat receivers. Brewton then took the rock 60 yards this time for another Bulldog score. After another defensive stand, the Bulldogs methodically made their way downfield with carries by Paskas, Bonagura, Carney, and DeNunzio. Brewton scampered in from 15 yards out for his third TD of the night giving the Bulldogs a 26-0 lead at halftime. The second half saw Nicholas Gremanis, Leo Forte, Rudy Garofalo, Avian Raspaldo, Jayden Arlauskas, Aidan Sarnowski, and Brandon Mercado ensuring the shutout. The Pee Wee Bulldogs (8 & 9 year olds) stepped outside of the conference to find an opponent on Saturday, facing the Bulldogs from Butler/Bloomingdale. From the first play from scrimmage Jimmy Sinani, Chase Martini, and Logan Bohn opened a crease that Will Holman took sixty-five yards to start the onslaught. Holman had two touchdowns on the day. Quinn Weber found DJ Gregory on a flag route for a score on their next possession. Keelan Cannon and John Gioia opened a huge hole on the Bulldogs third possession that allowed Zach Snyder to race through for a fifty yard score. Aiden Cunningham also had a big run as he showed his speed to get around the edge late in the fourth quarter. Defensively, the Bulldogs (6-1) were suffocating. Lead by DJ Gregory, Vincent Daly, and JoJo Marullo, the Butler squad couldn’t gain a single yard on the day. Interior lineman Martini, Gioia, and Vincent Urgola played superbly. This week the Rutherford Mighty Mites (6 & 7 year olds) hosted the Hawthorne Cubs. For the second straight game the Bulldogs allowed the opposing team to score on their opening possession. The Cubs scored on a long run down the left sideline for their only score of the day. The Bulldog defense tightened up after the first quarter and the offense followed suit. The defense was led by Robert Prince, Michael Pizza, Julian Decarlo, Michael Anglim, Mason Colon, Luke Barnes, Ryan Wilton, and Brendan O’Rourke. Although Rutherford was held scoreless in the first half they came out ready to go in the third quarter. Tyler Griffin was able to find the end zone on a nice 20 yard run for his first of two touchdowns on the day. The offensive line was opening holes all afternoon thanks to Joey Urgola, Owen Byrne, Owen Burbank, Jake Barnes, Chris DeHaas, Chase Kuenzle, and Frankie Wilton. The Bulldogs were able to end the game when Brendan O’Rourke recovered a fumble in the end zone for their third and final score on the day. The Bulldog program will be on the road visiting the Lyndhurst Golden Bears Saturday October 19th.
Seniors Dominant in NM Win!
The Rutherford Senior Bulldogs (12-13 year olds) came out booming in their 37-0 victory over the New Milford Knights. On the inaugural play, Devin Burgos rips the ball right from the hands of the New Milford running back. Right behind him was Ryan Ward, who scooped the ball up, taking it half the length of the field for a Bulldogs touchdown. Not two plays later, the defense prevailed again; Matt Scheibe picks the ball off, taking it down to the ten yard line setting the Bulldogs up to score once again. Cole Goumas splits the Knights defense and takes it to the end zone to put the Bulldogs up by two scores early on. However, this was only the beginning of Goumas' stellar performance. He also scored on a 50-yard run and a 5-yard run. Shortly after, Matt Schiebe tacks on to the Bulldogs lead from 10 yards out, ultimately shutting the door on New Milford. Ryan Ward, Devin Burgos, and Chris Lora stood out on defense, leading the team towards a shutout. On the other side of the ball, Chris Goya and Jack Daly commanded the offense at quarterback and led the Bulldogs to score their five offensive touchdowns. This feat couldn't have been accomplished without the help of Arthur Costan, dave Rojas, Owen Fernandez, Nick Lora, and Antonio Decarlo on the offensive line opening massive holes for their Backfield. With this win, the Rutherford Bulldog Seniors are rolling at 5-0. The Rutherford Mighty Mites (6-7 year olds) took on the New Milford Green Knights last Saturday in New Milford. For the first time this season the Bulldogs weren’t able to score a touchdown on their opening drive. New Milford forced Rutherford to punt it away. The Green Knights came out and scored on their second play from scrimmage on a long run down the sideline. Rutherford then received the ball and scored a touchdown of their own when Brendan O’Rourke took a handoff thirty yards for the score. The Bulldogs were able to take Back momentum while on Defense. The defense settled in and were led by Owen Burbank, Tyler Griffin, Michael Anglim, Mason Colon, Alejandro Samaniego, Julian DeCarlo, and Luke Barnes. They held New Milford scoreless for the rest of the game. Just before halftime, the Bulldogs were able to punch in another score when Ryan Wilton took a handoff and raced down the sideline for a forty yard touchdown run. Wilton also led Rutherford on another scoring drive in the third quarter when he ripped off his second forty yard touchdown run of the day. Opening the holes for the running backs were Joey Urgola, Owen Byrne, Owen Burbank, Michael Pizza, Jake Barnes, Chris DeHaas, and Chase Kuenzle. The game ended on an interception by Rutherford’s Tyler Griffin. The Bulldogs will take on Hawthorne next Saturday at home. The Pee Wee Bulldogs (8-9 year olds) started off slow against New Milford. Big plays put the Bulldogs (4-1) on their backs, down 19-0 early in the first half. The scoreboard didn’t play any part, as they fought back scoring four times, but fell short by one point in the 26-25 loss. The thriller was built around the hard work by Fynn Byrne and John Gioia making holes on the left side for Will Holman to exploit the defense for each of the Bulldog scores. On defense, the Pee Wees made adjustments and tightened up in the second half to eliminate the New Milford running game. JoJo Marullo moved into the linebacker position and showed he needs to stay there as the season progresses. The Pee Wee’s will be looking ahead to see this team again and avenge the only loss in their young football careers. The RJF&C Junior squad (4-1) suffered their first loss of the season 14-0 vs the New Milford Green Knights. Both squads came in undefeated and battled until the final whistle. Most of the game saw small chunks of yardage being gained on both sides. Bulldog running backs George Brewton, Dmitri Paskas, Matthew Bonagura, and Emmett Carney fought for every yard during the low scoring battle. On the defensive side, Linebackers Carney, Paskas, Bonagura , and Rudy Garofalo made it very difficult for the Green Knights to move the ball. New Milford was able to score on their first possession but were held to no more scores until late in the fourth quarter. The game went back and forth as both squads threatened to score at any given time. The Bulldogs defensive line of Troy Waddell, Angelo Pizza, Nicholas Ford, Andrew Ochojski, and Myles Balchan had some hiccups but then would stiffen up not allowing yards. Cornerback Rusty Snyder stopped a New Milford drive with an interception on the 10 yard line. The Bulldogs threatened the field with a long run by Brewton and Vincent DeNunzio but the score remained 7-0 at the half. The second half saw the third quarter being eaten up by a long drive for New Milford. The Bulldogs held them on fourth down and forced a turnover on downs on their own 20 yard line. With the fourth quarter starting, The Bulldogs started their own drive and fought their way down the field. Linemen Kellen Caughey, Pizza, Ford, DeNunzio, Snyder, Garofalo, Raspaldo, Arlauskas, Rodriguez, and Sarnowski helped with the push. Troy Waddell caught a 30-yard pass from Balchan putting the Bulldogs closer to the end zone on the New Milford 20. The Bulldogs were stopped on a fourth and short and turned the ball over. The Bulldogs will be home this weekend versus the Carlstadt/East Rutherford program. The Mites will be playing Hawthorne at 4:00 pm while the Pee Wee’s take on the Butler Bulldogs.
Juniors Southern Division Leaders!
This week the Rutherford Might Mites (7 year olds) played the Vikings in a rematch from week one. Both teams came out playing tough and it was a stalemate throughout the entire first quarter. The Bulldogs (4-0) finally broke through with four minutes to play in the first half when Ryan Wilton blasted his way for a forty yard touchdown run. Opening the holes for the running backs were Joey Urgola, Owen Byrne, Owen Burbank, Chris DeHaas, Michael Pizza, Frankie Wilton, and Chase Kuenzle. In the second half, Rutherford was able to move the ball and score on two long touchdown runs by quarterback Tyler Griffin. The Bulldog defense once again came ready to play. This week’s defense was led was led by Robert Prince, Alejandro Samaniego, Michael Anglim, Luke Barnes, and Jake Barnes. Ryan Wilton capped off the scoring on the day when he intercepted a pass and took it thirty yards for the touchdown. The Pee Wee Bulldogs (8-9 year olds) improved to 4-0 with a 34-0 blowout over the North Arlington. Will Holman and Zach Snyder showed their speed as Holman raced in for three scores, while Snyder torched the defense for two more. The offensive line was exceptional as Logan Bohn, Keelan Cannon, Chase Martini, John Gioia, and Ayden Rivera didn’t allow one play go for a loss. As good as these boys have been offense, the defense is where the Bulldogs really have shown the dominance frustrating opposing coaches. They shut down their opponent in the shut out with Vinny Urgola at nose tackle, Damian Gregory at MLB, and Quinn Weber at defensive end. Aiden Cunningham and Vincent Daly locked down the corners, as Ethan DeCarlo had his first career interception. After the rout in North Arlington, the Pee Wee JV squad traveled to Hawthorne on Sunday for an out of conference game. The Bulldogs fought a hard game that finished in a 0-0 tie. Fynn Byrne, Manny Arguello, Jimmy Sinani, and Chase Martini refused to allow their opponent to score. Linebackers JoJo Marullo, and Vincent Daly made tackles that echoed all the way back to Rutherford. Tommy DePascale, Tony Pizza, Devon Magai, and Julian Kay eliminated any chance of a pass against the Bulldogs defense. Young Owen Byrne and Joey Urgola we’re called up in their Pee Wee football debut, showing no fear as they lined up against the older opponents. The RJF&C Juniors (10 & 11 yr olds) went to 4-0 with a 29-0 victory over the North Arlington Vikings. The defense settled in early as The Vikings were able to gain some yards on their first drive but were forced to eventually punt. Defensive linemen Troy Waddell, Angelo Pizza, Nicholas Ford, Andrew Ochojski, Rudy Garofalo and Myles Balchan put a lot of pressure in the backfield and made numerous tackles. Linebackers Dmitri Paskas, Emmett Carney and Matthew Bonagura swarmed to the ball wreaking havoc for the Vikings. On the offensive side of the ball, George Brewton carried the rock the entire 80-yard drive as the Bulldogs punched in their first score of the night. QB Balchan led the offense systematically downfield as linemen Waddell, Pizza, Brandon Jacobus, Kellen Caughey, Ochojski, Ford and Vincent DeNunzio split the defense for lanes. The Vikings tried to put another drive together but Linebacker Carney had different plans as he stripped the ball carrier and recovered the fumble. A few plays later Bonagura punched it in and after the PAT The Bulldogs led 14-0. Carney ended the Vikings drive again as he sacked the quarterback. The Bulldogs had the ball on The Vikings 20 yard line right before halftime. Myles Balchan then rolled out and hit DeNunzio for a TD pass giving The Bulldogs a 21-0 lead at halftime. Brewton took another carry for 60 yards for his second TD of the night at the beginning of the second half. Dmitri Paskas split the uprights on the PAT making it 29-0 Bulldogs. The Vikings broke a long run and threatened the end zone but the Bulldogs held them on the 10 yard line for seven plays as Waddell, Carney, Ford, Paskas, and Bonagura added to their stat line with sacks and backfield tackles. A strip-sack and fumble recovery by Paskas ended the goal-line stance. The Bulldogs ended the game methodically driving downfield with Christopher Kasperan handing the rock to Garofalo, Rusty Snyder, and Leo Forte. Avian Raspaldo, Jayden Arlauskas, Nicholas Rodriguez, Aiden Sarnowski, and Nicholas Gremanis continued the solid blocking ending the game.The Rutherford Senior Bulldogs (12-13) year olds kept their winning streak going with a 38-0 win over the North Arlington Vikings.

Senior Dogs Rise to Occasion
The Rutherford Senior Bulldogs (12-13) year olds had another shut out 20-0 for the second week of the season against the Wood Ridge Blue Devils.

The RJF&C Junior Bulldogs (10-11 yr olds) went to 2-0 as they defeated the Wood-Ridge Blue Devils 26-0. With an opening onside kick-off recovery by George Brewton, the Bulldogs (2-0) offense took the field. Linemen Troy Waddell, Nicholas Ford, Kellen Caughey , and Evan Diaz on the left side of the offense pushed their way down the field allowing the backfield of Emmett Carney, Dmitri Paskas and Brewton to gain yardage in chunks. Brewton finished the drive scampering 15 yards for the first of two TD's he would post for the night. The defensive side for the Bulldogs swarmed to the ball and left the Blue Devils without many options. The D-Line of Myles Balchan, Andrew Ochojski, Ford, Angelo Pizza, and Waddell pressured the backfield and made a wall. Linebackers Rudy Garofalo, Carney, and Paskas were left free to make numerous tackles. The right side of the offense took their turn as linemen Evan Diaz, Pizza, and Vincent DeNunzio allowed the backfield to consistently gain yards. Dmitri Paskas followed their blocking to score the first of his two touchdowns of the night. The Bulldog defense held strong for the entire night as The Blue Devils tried to advance through the air later in the game. Cornerbacks Rusty Snyder, DeNunzio and Christopher Kasperan locked down and blanketed the receivers. With a comfortable lead, The Bulldogs offense looked to control the clock as Kasperan fed the rock to Leo Forte, Garofalo, and Snyder. O-linemen Avian Raspaldo, Jayden Arlauskas, Nicholas Rodriguez, Nick Gremanis and Aiden Sarnowski controlled the line of scrimmage with holes opening for the backfield.

They never looked back enroute to a 24-7 Bulldog (2-0) victory over Wood Ridge. Quinn Weber punched the next score in and later connected with Damian Gregory for a final score of the game. Zach Snyder added another long TD behind his patented straight arm. The offensive line was stellar, with Fynn Byrne, Logan Bohn, Ayden Rivera, John Gioia, and Chase Martini firing out as Coach Vinćenzo Urgola preached all season. The defense was lead by Vinny Urgola who made his 2019 season debut after suffering from a broken scale in week 1. Aiden Cunningham, Manny Arguello, and Vincent Daly all got a lot of work as Wood Ridge challenged the edge all game. Ethan DeCarlo was monstrous at the safety position saving numerous fourth down tries.

Bulldogs Sweep Wallington Panthers

The Bulldogs scored in all three parts of the game as they logged touchdowns on offense, defense, and special teams. Wallington started the game on the offensive side of the ball and the Bulldogs set the tone with a strong defensive start. The defensive line of Nicholas Ford, Angelo Pizza, Andrew Ochojski, Troy Waddell and Myles Balchan made a wall and put the pressure on. Linebackers Dmitri Paskas, Emmett Carney and Matthew Bonagura filled the gaps and allowed no yards gained. With Wallington turning it over on downs, the Bulldog Offense took over. Quarterback Myles Balchan fed the rock to George Brewton behind the blocking of backs Carney and Bonagura. Linemen Evan Diaz, Ochojski, Waddell, Pizza, and Ford then parted the seas for Bonagura as he scrambled down to the five yard line and punching it in on his next carry for the Bulldog score.

The Bulldogs then systematically ground their way down the field with Brewton, Paskas, and Carney carrying the rock. Paskas punched in the goal line run making it 21-0 Bulldogs at the half.

The 2019 Rutherford Pee Wee (8-9) year olds football picked up right where they left off last year, finding the end zone on nearly every snap of the ball during its 35-0 victory in Wallington. The offensive line led by Chase Martini, Aiden Rivera, Fynn Byrne, John Gioia, and Ethan DeCarlo we’re so dominating that the Bulldogs (1-0) were only tackled twice during the game. They enabled scores by Will Holman, Zach Snyder, JoJo Marullo, Aiden Cunningham, and Quinn Weber. Weber also found Damian Gregory the the air for another score. The offense wasn’t the only side of the ball the bulldogs dominated. The defense held their opponent to negative yardage on the day. Logan Bohn, Vincent Daly, Julian Kay, Devin Magai, and Manny Arguello all made plays to help assert their team’s dominance. Vinny Urgola, Anthony Pizza, and Tommy DePascale all are eager to keep the fire burning as they show the league they are the team to beat.

Former RJF&C Player Drafted in the NFL
The Bears have selected Northwestern University defensive end Corey Wootton with their fourth round selection, #109 overall. Here’s his profile from NFL.com.
Corey is an outstanding combination of size and strength for the position. His production is down from previous seasons and much of that can be attributed to a knee injury sustained in the Alamo Bowl at the end of last season. He is a decent athlete but not an explosive player off the edge. His lateral agility and change of direction hinders his playmaking ability in space. Corey does defend the run well and can anchor effectively to hold the point. He utilizes quick hands and long arms to control blockers but needs to expand his pass rush package to be effective at the next level. Wootton’s measurables, instincts and toughness makes him an interesting prospect for most defensive fronts. He wasn’t nearly as effective as previous seasons and knee concerns will be closely scrutinized going into the 2010 Draft.
