Bulldog Pee Wees & Juniors Remain Unscathed

The Rutherford Pee Wees (8-9 yr olds) had another dominant effort, out-scoring North Arlington 31-0. The lil Bulldogs opened the game with a Will Holman kick return of 50 yards. Dmitri Paskas then followed with a 20 yard sweep behind the blocking of Bob Carney and Matt Bonagura on Rutherford’s second score. Quarterback Myles Balchan ran a counter successfully punching in the Dog’s third score. Bonagura followed that up with bulldozing his way in for another score. The offensive line of Russ Snyder, Andrew Ochojski, Jayden Arlauskas, Vin Urgola, Kellen Caughey, Evan Diaz and Holman dictated the rushing pace. Defensively, the Bulldogs posted a shutout and had an interception returned for a touchdown. DB Rudy Garafolo picked off an errant pass and weaved his way down the left sideline 60 yards. The Rutherford Pee Wee JV squad (2-0) picked up another victory in Glen Rock on Sunday, 14-7. Fynn Burn, Ethan DeCarlo and Blake Burgos had big days on defense. Offensively, Quinn Weber hit Garafolo on a seam route for a 2 point conversion. The Rutherford Junior Bulldogs (10-11 yr olds) out-scored the North Arlington Vikings 26-0.  The Vikings remained scoreless with the efforts of Antonio DeCarlo and Luis Morella.  Jimmy Queli, Laudan Henry, and Marchello Fernandez provided solid coverage on defense for the Bulldogs (2-0).  While David Rojas, Angelo Pizza, Nick Ford, George Brewton, Devin Burgos, and Chris Gioia stood solid on the line.  The offensive line was led by Ryan Hayes, Nick Lora, David Rojas, Luis Morella, and Jailen Magai allowing the Bulldogs backs to do what they do. Laudan Henry broke out with three touch downs and Antonio DeCarlo contributed with one touchdown. Devin Burgos ran for two extra points for the Bulldogs. The RJF&C Seniors (12-13 yr olds) suffered their first loss of the season 34-6 to a solid North Arlington Vikings team. The Bulldogs (1-1) gave up two quick TD's to the Vikings in the first quarter. The Bulldogs seemed to settle down as the defensive line of Chris Lora, Angel Bido, Alejandro Garcia, Steve Pisciotta and Owen Fernandez caused a Vikings turnover. QB Van Weber took the Bulldog offense downfield completing passes to Ryan Ward, Cole Goumas and Matt Scheibe. The offensive line of Ernie Bonagura, Sal Fernandez, Pisciotta, Garcia and Fernandez gave him the time to scramble and pick his targets. Anthony Bonagura helped block out of the backfield and put the Bulldogs in a scoring position. Weber finished the drive with a quick pass to Goumas putting the Bulldogs on the scoreboard. The Bulldogs defense was able to stop the Vikings next drive with Zach Herninko, Arthur Costan, Jack Daly and Fernandez helping put pressure in the backfield. The offense put another drive together and found themselves on their own 5 yard line but could not punch it in. The Vikings started hitting a rhythm and wore down the Bulldogs defense for the rest of the game. The Rutherford program is home versus Wallington Panthers Saturday 9/22. The Bulldog Beefsteak is scheduled for Friday night at the Ames Ave Firehouse. Anyone interested in tickets can text 201-615-3126.

Bulldogs Sweep Harrison BlueTide

The Rutherford Mighty Mites (7 yr olds) won their season opener 18-6. QB Tyler Griffin handed off to RB’s Ryan Wilton, Anthony Pizza and Jake Barnes, who collectively rushed for over 150 yards behind the blocking of Brenden ORourke, Julian DeCarlo, Mike Pizza and Julian Kay. The Rutherford Pee Wees (8-9 yr olds) scored quickly and often in a lopsided 31-0 win over Harrison.  The little Bulldogs got on the board when Dmitri Paskas returned the opening kickoff 50 yards for the first touchdown. The Bulldogs second score was a quarterback keeper from 15 yards out, in which Myles Balchan punched in. Will Holman caught the ensuing pass for the extra point. The offensive line of Russ Snyder, Andrew Ochojski, Jayden Arlauskas, Vin Urgola, Kellen Caughey, Evan Diaz and Holman controlled the line of scrimmage with several pancake blocks. The Dogs had another special teams score, when Paskas picked up a punt and followed Emmett Carney down the right sideline, making the score 19-0. Tailback Matt Bonagura capped the nite off with a tackle breaking 15 yard run for a final score, 31-0. The defense gave up one first down all night and was lead by corners Rudy Garofalo and Zach Snyder, NG Damien Gregory and MLB Carney. The JV squad beat the Kinnelon Colts on Sunday afternoon, 26-6. QB Quinn Weber lead an offense that scored five times: Weber td, Sebastian Rojas td and Holman 3td. The blocking of Blake Burgos, Fynn Byrne, Ethan DeCarlo, Chase Martini and Ayden Rivera created the lopsided rushing attack. The Rutherford Junior Bulldogs (10-11 yr olds) opened their season against the Harrison Blue Tide with a 26-0 win. Prior to the start of the game the team was pumped up by starting running back/defensive back Laudan Henry, who had two touchdowns. The offensive line was led by David Rojas, Joe DeMayo, and Cuya Khan. Devon Burgos had a 50-yard touchdown run destroying the Tide defenders in his path. Antonio DeCarlo scored a touchdown with Nick Lora kicking for extra points. The Bulldogs defensive line was solid against The Tide with Marchello Fernandez, Angelo Pizza, Luis Morella, and Chris Gioia giving their all. The RJF&C Senior squad (12 and 13 yr olds) finished the night with the completion of a Blue Tide sweep winning 42-0. The defense set the tone first as Harrison moved the ball the first few plays but were then shut down as the Bulldogs swarmed to the ball. Christopher Lora, Angel Bido, Ernie Bonogura, Yahya Elfeshaw and Owen Fernandez put pressure up the middle as linebackers Ryan Ward, Arthur Costan and Sal Fernandez attacked. Defensive backs Van Weber, Matt Scheibe, Cole Goumas and Jack Daly blanketed receivers and helped stopping the run. The offense was in sync as the Offensive line of Lora, Steve Pisciotta, S. Fernandez, E. Bonogura, Alejandro Garcia, O. Fernandez and Ward pushed the Blue Tide defense down field. Goumas and Scheibe each scored multiple times running the rock and Weber threw two for two to Ward both for touchdowns. Costan was responsible for two made PAT kicks and a run also. The Bulldog program is home next Saturday night vs North Arlington Vikings 4:00 pm.

Former RJF&C Player Drafted in the NFL

Apr24th Bears select Defensive End Corey Wootton in 4th round
The Bears have selected Northwestern University defensive end Corey Wootton with their fourth round selection, #109 overall. Here’s his profile from
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.
