Golden Bears Chargers Pop Warner Highlights from Week 4


The East Brunswick Spotswood Golden Bears Chargers had a very successful weekend of games on September 15.  Here are some of the highlights:

Junior Pee Wee:

     The GBC Junior Pee Wee squad headed to Lakewood September 15 for their fourth game of the season. The GBC boys fell behind 7-0 early but then the defense held strong in the second quarter stopping Lakewood short of the goal line. The GBC offense, not to be out done, began firing on all cylinders behind the speed combination of Alex R, Joe S, and the sheer power of Shae G who saw his first action at running back this season. The offensive line dominated the Lakewood defense on a long drive during the second quarter which ended with Shae G finding the end zone for a touchdown then adding the extra point as well.

     In the second half both defenses held strong, with Sean R of GBC turning in an MVP type performance recovering 3 Lakewood fumbles and making 5 tackles in the backfield. Kenny G and Connor L both helped to anchor the D-Line along with Nick A. In the end, Lakewood added a score but Shavong P flew into the backfield from his linebacker position and stuffed the opposing runner in the backfield short of the extra point. The GBC offense took over deep in their own territory late in the fourth quarter and went on a drive that saw Shae G gaining 7-9 yards a carry. GBC got the ball down inside the Lakewood 20 when a controversial call by the referee ended their comeback hopes, and the Junior Pee Wees lost a close game 13-7. The boys will look to build on their momentum on Saturday September 21 when they travel to Sayreville to take on the Leprechauns.


Mighty Mite:

     The GBC Mighty Mite boys captured their first victory of the season on September 15 with a 13-0 victory over Lakewood. The GBC defense came out swinging in the opening quarter forcing a turnover on Lakewood’s first possession.  Sebastian V opened the scoring for GBC with a 4 yard TD run early in the contest then converted the extra point to put the visiting squad up 7-0. The remainder of the first half and entire third quarter saw both offenses struggling to move the ball against outstanding defensive efforts.

     GBC put the game out of reach late in the 4th quarter when Jared H burst over the goal line to move the score to 13-0. The GBC team travels to Sayreville on September 21 for a game against the Leprechauns, “If we play like we did last week we have a good shot at coming out of Sayreville with another W,” said Mighty Mite Asst. Coach Jim Curnal.


Tiny Mites:

     The GBC Tiny Mites played their best game of the season September 15 when they visited the Raritan Bay Cougars. Twice during the contest the young GBC defense stopped the Cougars on downs to take possession of the ball once again.  The offensive line took over from there, opening huge holes for the 1, 2 punch of Jeremy D and Zavier N to plunge through. Jeremy D ended the day scoring all three of the GBC touchdowns. Ryan L showed off why his coaches call him “The Missile” with his play on defense.  The boys hope to continue their winning ways on September 21 against Sayreville.
