The Ten-Year-Old Hawks Win on the Road
It was a place called Elmont, the Hawks walked in feeling like kings but forgetting Elmont came to play football also. The Hawks won the toss and decided to receive the ball. They went downfield with the ball being snapped by center Mark Corrado who did a great job up front with Kyle Sassono, Dan Bitsimis, Christopher Leo and big Ray Ryan. These guys helped pave the way for a true display of smash mouth football. If there were a game ball given out that day, it would have to go to the locomotive, Hayden Kirk. He led the rushing attack with over 150 yards. Keith Hadnagy and Anthony Ostrander also ran well with the blocking help of Carmine Demieri and Joe Kennedy. They even tried to put it into the air with tight end James McKeon who had some receiving yards. They were the first to put points on the board. On the ensuing kick off Elmont ran it back for a touchdown to tie the game. The offense didn't get much rest and tried to move the ball, but were stopped by Elmont's defense.
