3rd: Maher 37 yard field goal

WORCESTER- The Worcester Mass Fury scored on a 53 yard punt return with 3:35 remaining in the game to defeat the Clinton Irish Blizzard 24-20 and advance to the EFL semifinals. Clinton had battled back from a 17-7 first half deficit to take a 20-17 fourth quarter lead before the key play from the Fury special teams late in the game proved to be the difference. Worcester improves to 9-2 and advances to face the Taunton Gladiators. Clinton ends its season with a 6-5 mark.

 

                Trailing 7-0 in the second period, Clinton quarterback John Riccio completed a 74 yard touchdown pass to Brandon Holt to tie the score. The Fury would run off ten consecutive points before Chris Nieves returned a kickoff 81 yards for touchdown sending the Irish Blizzard into halftime only trailing 17-14.

 

                Defense and special teams would rule the second half. A fumble recovery by Clinton’s Mike Dale and some tough running by Scott Allard and Joe Rice set up a 37 yard field goal by Adam Maher. Maher drilled the kick through the uprights to tie the game early in the third period. Early in the fourth quarter, linebacker Justin Bailey’s second interception of the game gave Clinton possession on its own 42 yard line. A 25 yard run by Joe Rice and a facemask penalty put Clinton inside the 20 yard line. The Irish Blizzard would eventually settle for a 36 yard field goal by Maher and take their first lead of the game with 13:50 remaining.

 

                That lead would stand until there was less than four minutes left to play, when the Fury would score their only points of the second half on the big 53 yard punt return. The Irish Blizzard did manage one final threat. Three consecutive completions by Riccio gave Clinton a first and ten at the Worcester 32 yard line but Clinton could not move any further as the drive stalled and the Fury held on for the 24-20 win.

 

                The Irish Blizzard got a spectacular effort from its defense, particularly in the second half. After yielding 17 first half points, the Clinton defense held the Fury offense scoreless in the second half. Justin Bailey pulled down two interceptions. Fellow linebacker Mike Dale’s deflected pass led to one of Bailey’s interceptions. Dale also recovered a fumble. Linebacker Brian Learned forced one fumble and safety Chris Leblanc added a recovery. Cornerback Eric Arsenault picked off a Fury pass, as did cornerback Nieves who also had the kickoff return for touchdown. In all, the Clinton defense forced six turnovers on the night.

 

                The Worcester defense was equally as tough. The stingy Fury defense did their best to limit the normally potent Irish Blizzard offense. Riccio did manage to complete 8 passes for 120 yards and one score. Holt was on the receiving end of four passes for 83 yards and one score. Rice led all rushers with 59 yards on nine carries. Maher had a big night kicking for Clinton. He was perfect on an extra point attempt and two field goals (37, 36 yards). He also managed a touchback on a kickoff.

          Clinton's season ends with a 6-5 record. The loss marks the fourth game Clinton lost by a touchdown or less this season including three at the hands of the Fury.

Riccio Racks Up Wins & Milestones for Irish Blizzard...
2010 0723 Riccio sm

John Riccio bye week feature 

Riccio Racks Up Wins & Milestones for Irish Blizzard

by Sean Kerrigan (Clinton Irish Blizzard Football Club) 

John Riccio’s semipro football career didn’t end the way he thought it would. So he started over again.  

In the process, he has rewritten the Clinton Irish Blizzard record books, becoming the first quarterback in franchise history to throw for 10,000 yards and 100 touchdowns in a career. 

“In the back of my mind, I kept telling myself, ‘You can only play for so many years before age catches up with you,’” says Riccio. “I knew there was something left in the tank, that I could still play at a competitive level. Some of the other retired veterans were thinking the same way, and we all had a bitter taste in our mouths.” 

That bitter taste has been transformed into sweetness, as the Irish Blizzard is back in the EFL playoffs, with a first-round matchup against the Worcester Fury on Sunday at 6:30 pm at Worcester State College. In his comeback, Riccio threw for more than 1,500 yards and 20 touchdowns (versus nine interceptions), topping the 100-touchdown milestone against Worcester in July and 10,000 yards at Middleboro in August. 

The 2010 season was supposed to be it for Riccio. His wife was expecting their first child, and the Irish Blizzard was coming off its first EFL championship in 2009. When the team found itself in its third consecutive league title game, up 21-6 over the Taunton Gladiators halfway through the third quarter, it seemed as if a fairytale ending was in the works.  

The fairytale turned into a nightmare. Taunton scored 20 fourth-quarter points to shock the Irish Blizzard and take the championship, 32-21. Riccio and a handful of other veteran Clinton players limped off into retirement, and the rebuilding 2011 team finished 4-5. 

Having a chance to erase that memory, and chase another title, proved enough to get Riccio and the rest of that core back in their pads. 

“Championships are what I play for at this point,” says Riccio. “It’s nice to know that, when you consider the long history of the EFL – more than 50 years – you’ll be able to go back and look at the list of champions and forever see the Clinton Irish Blizzard name written there with the best.” 

A product of Southington, Conn., and St. Paul’s High School, Riccio played his college ball at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. As a freshman at WPI, he found himself in camp with 11 other quarterbacks. 

“I wondered if I’d ever see the field,” he says, “let alone have any kind of success.”  

As it turns out, Riccio’s success in Worcester was historic. His junior and senior seasons rank among the school’s best ever, with numerous career and season records, including the program’s all-time season highs for total offense, passing attempts, completions, and yards (1998). 

After relocating to greater Boston, Riccio joined former WPI teammates Jamie Cairns, Brian Learned, Jon Pires, and Matt Surette in Clinton for the 2005 EFL season. He was named Eastern Football League MVP in 2007, and followed that season up with an even better statistical year in 2008.  He gives credit for any individual recognition to his teammates, to Irish Blizzard coach Ed Peete, and to team management’s efforts to keep the team’s roster solid in the often shifting semipro world.  

“The old adage is that being a good quarterback is 90 percent from the neck up,” he says. “I owe it all to coaching and learning how important scheme, strategy, and the cerebral part of the game are.”  

Longtime Irish Blizzard receiver Jim Learned has caught more of Riccio’s passes than anyone, including 11 balls for 109 yards and one TD in the 2009 EFL title game. He agrees that Riccio’s off-the-field efforts have played a big part in his success.   

“John works hard and is prepared,” says Learned. “Even with all his accomplishments, he takes nothing for granted. He leads by example. As a teammate and quarterback, you can’t ask for anything more.” 

That admiration carries over onto the other side of the ball.  

“Playing against John in practice over the years has truly made me a better player,” says Irish Blizzard defensive back captain Chris LeBlanc. “At times, it feels like a chess match out there with him, but at the end of the day you can sit down talk about each other’s moves and learn from your mistakes. Having Riccio out there brings that out in not only myself but in our defense as a whole.” 

Riccio’s unsure how many more snaps he has in him, but says his years in Clinton will always rank among the best of his playing career. 
 

“Throughout high school and college, there were always more losses than wins on the teams I was involved with,” he says. “To contribute to the Irish Blizzard winning tradition, and to bring an EFL championship to the town of Clinton, has truly been rewarding.  

“I’ve always enjoyed the fact that people would come up to me when around town, people I’ve never met before, and ask how the team is doing. It shows a true connection between the town and team. The coaches and owners of the Blizz are an example of the right way things should be done at this level. Because of this, it’s been a pure joy to have the opportunity to continue playing competitive football for years beyond than I ever thought I would.”

The score gave Clinton a 14-0 lead at halftime.

Clinton’s stingy defense kept the Townies from scoring the rest of the way in recording their second shutout of the season.

 

                Riccio finished with 114 yards passing and a pair of touchdowns. Scott Allard netted 72 rushing yards on 9 carries to lead all rushers.

4th: Borukhov 15 yard pass from Riccio (Maher kick)

 

CLINTON- Quarterback John Riccio threw three touchdown passes to Felix Borukhov and ran for another score as the Clinton Irish Blizzard rolled to a 36-0 victory over the Metro West Mavericks in Saturday night’s home opener at Fuller Field. A superb defensive effort by Clinton produced a safety, a defensive touchdown, and shutout on the night. With the win, the Irish Blizzard improves to 1-2 on the season.

                Leading 2-0 following a forced safety by Chris Leblanc, Riccio had a hand in three second quarter touchdowns. Riccio connected with Borukhov on a pair of touchdown passes before calling his own number on a 1 yard scoring run that sent the Irish Blizzard into halftime with a 22-0 lead.

                The defense would make the lead stand as fourth quarter interceptions by Gareth Watts and David Claiser helped seal the shutout. Watts returned his interception 28 yards for a touchdown. Riccio and Borukhov would also hook up for one more fourth quarter touchdown to close out the scoring.

                 Riccio led the offense with 10 completions for 104 passing yards and three touchdowns. He also added the touchdown run. Scott Allard led all rushers with 31 yards on the ground. Offensive linemen T.R. Staake, Jeff Learned, Jon Davies, Jay Berry, Steve Meyer, Nate Orcutt, and Roger Blaike all saw action while giving Riccio ample protection to throw.

                The defensive effort was highlighted by Watts and Claiser’s interceptions. Linebackers Justin Bailey, Alejandro Miranda, Jamie Cairns, Brian Learned, and Josh Lowe smothered the Mavericks prolific rushing attack, while only yielding one first down the entire night. Defensive linemen Brian Publicover, Brian McQuade, Mike Dale, and Stanley Demesyeux combined for three sacks and five tackles for loss.  

                The Irish Blizzard next travel to Charlestown High School to do battle with the Charlestown Townies. Kickoff is scheduled for 5pm on Saturday.

Clinton Scoring Summary:

 

Holt 46 yard pass from Riccio (failed kick)

 

Gamble 3 yard run (failed kick)

 

 

WORCESTER-For the second consecutive week, the Clinton Irish Blizzard failed to hold a fourth quarter lead as the Worcester Mass Fury edged Clinton 14-12 in a wild Eastern Football League contest on Saturday night at Worcester State. The Irish Blizzard had two plays from inside the two yard line in the final seconds of the game but failed to score as Worcester’s goal line stand preserved their comeback victory.

 

                Trailing 6-0 in the second period, Clinton finally got on the board. Quarterback John Riccio connected with Brandon Holt on a 46 yard scoring pass tying the game at 6-6. The Irish Blizzard went back to work on their next possession as Ty Gamble capped off a 74 yard scoring drive with a 3 yard touchdown run sending Clinton into the half with a 12-6 lead.

 

                The lead would remain 12-6 into the final period as a crazy fourth quarter ensued. Derek Guimond’s interception of a Fury pass on Clinton’s one yard line gave the Irish Blizzard possession deep in their own territory. Worcester dropped RB Ty Gamble for a loss and safety on second down narrowing the Irish Blizzard lead to 12-8. Following their free kick, the Fury marched 55 yards for the go ahead score and 14-12 lead.

 

                Clinton immediately responded driving to the Fury 25 yard line before a fumble halted the Irish Blizzard scoring bid. As the Fury attempted to run out the clock, Matt Guimond recovered a Worcester fumble giving Clinton a final shot at victory.  Riccio connected with Jim Learned on consecutive passes to give Clinton a first down on the 11 yard line. An errant shotgun snap on the next play appeared to doom Clinton backing them up 29 yards to the 40 yard line. Riccio then uncorked a 39 yard bomb to Felix Borukhov giving the Irish Blizzard a first and goal from just outside the one yard line with 12 seconds left. Following a short delay to resolve issues with the lights at the field, Clinton attempted two run plays from the one yard line. Ty Gamble was stopped short on both rushing attempts as Worcester held on for the improbable 14-12 win.

 

                Riccio led the Clinton offense completing 18 of 29 passes for 238 yards and one touchdown. Felix Borukhov was Riccio’s favorite target catching seven passes for 110 yards.  Ty Gamble led all backs with 57 rushing yards on 18 carries and one score.

 

                For the second consecutive week, Clinton got a great effort from its defense. Eric Arsenault and Derek Guimond contributed interceptions in the secondary. Matt Guimond and Gareth Watts both had big nights while both recorded key fumble recoveries.

                The Irish Blizzard returns home on Saturday for the 2012 home opener versus the Metrowest Mavericks. Kickoff is scheduled for 6pm at Fuller Field.

CLINTON- The Clinton Irish Blizzard shook off a sluggish start and a 26 point deficit to storm back for a 34-26 win over the Worcester Mass Fury at Fuller Field on Saturday afternoon. Four first half turnovers led to 26 Fury points before the Irish Blizzard ripped off 34 unanswered points. Clinton’s amassed 233 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns while Eric Arsenault’s three interceptions highlighted Clinton’s defensive effort.
                Following four turnovers and a punt on their first five possessions, a stunned Irish Blizzard squad trailed 26-0 midway through the second quarter. Quarterback John Riccio got on track late in the second period connecting on four consecutive passes before Ty Gamble broke free for a 40 yard touchdown run. The touchdown cut Worcester’s lead to 26-7. An Arsenault interception right before halftime set up a Gamble 4 yard touchdown run giving the Irish Blizzard a huge boost heading into the locker room only trailing 26-14.
                On their first possession of the third quarter Riccio completed consecutive 20 yard passes to Ernie Adams then Jim Learned advancing the ball to the Worcester one yard line. Riccio called his own number on a one yard plunge narrowing the Fury lead to 26-21. On their next possession the Irish Blizzard immediately threatened again. Scott Allard broke free on a 44 yard run but Maher’s 26 yard field goal attempt sailed wide left and Worcester maintained the 26-21 lead entering the fourth quarter. 
                On their ensuing drive in the fourth quarter, Clinton needed just four running plays to take their first lead of the game. Gamble and Allard combined for 45 yards in four running plays on the go ahead scoring drive. Gamble finished off the drive with a 13 yard touchdown run and after a blocked extra point the Irish Blizzard led 27-26. Clinton failed to put the game away following a 9 play drive that stalled on the Worcester four yard line. Justin Bailey made sure the Irish Blizzard got another crack at the end zone. The linebacker intercepted a pass and returned it to the Worcester nine yard line. Gamble put the game on ice taking a first down handoff and sprinting nine yards into the end zone sealing the 34-26 victory for Clinton. 
                Stan St. Juste, Jeff Learned, Nate Orcutt, Jon Davies and Steve Meyer anchored an offensive line that produced 323 total yards of offense. Gamble led the rushing attack with 128 yards and four touchdowns on eighteen carries. Allard added 92 rushing yards on eleven carries. Riccio shook off a slow start to complete 11 passes for 90 yards over the final three quarters including a stretch of nine completions in 11 attempts during the second and third quarters. Jim Learned led all receivers with four catches for 47 yards. Adams chipped in with 22 yards on three catches.
                The Clinton defense held the Fury scoreless over the final two and a half periods.

Roger Blaikie and Luis Rodriguez combined for 11 tackles including two tackles for loss. Dave Flaherty contributed a pair of pass breakups. With the win Clinton improves to 4-5 on the season. The loss drops Worcester to 6-3 on the year.

CLINTON – The Twin City Blue Raiders used a stingy defense and some timely offense to spoil the 2011 home opener for Clinton Irish Blizzard in front of a big crowd on Saturday night at Fuller Field. Clinton could only muster 111 yards of total offense on the night against the Twin City defense. The Irish Blizzard defense was nearly as impressive holding the Blue Raiders scoreless into the third period before finally yielding some points on a sweltering night at Fuller. 
                The Clinton offense struggled to get much going in the first half as they were bothered by poor field position for most of the second quarter. The Irish Blizzard managed to put together some sustained drives in the second half but failed to convert on three fourth down attempts. RB Ty Gamble gave Clinton a spark at times as he contributed thirty yards on the ground. QB Ricky Joslin added another 10 rushing yards. Joslin completed five passes for 70 yards on the night. Receivers Mike Murray and Jim Learned each hauled in a pair of catches.
                The Irish Blizzard got another solid outing from its defense as the unit held the Blue Raiders scoreless into the third period. LB Justin Bailey led all tacklers 12 stops on the night. Brian Learned contributed 9 tackles, a forced fumble and an interception. CB Chris Nieves continued his solid play with a fumble recovery and an interception. CB Eric Arsenault added three pass breakups.
                The Irish Blizzard goes on the road this Saturday for a 5pm contest with the Charlestown Townies (Charlestown High School). Clinton will then return home for three consecutive home contests at Fuller Field.

LAWRENCE, MA –The Clinton Irish Blizzard scored 31 unanswered points over the final three quarters to post a 31-6 road victory over the Granite State Knights on Saturday. Clinton earns its first victory of 2011 improving to 1-1 on the season while Granite State drops to 0-2.

 

                Trailing 6-0 early in the second quarter, the Irish Blizzard engineered an impressive 86 yard, 10 play scoring drive. Ty Gamble capped off the drive with a one yard TD run giving Clinton a 7-6 lead. The next Clinton series saw quarterback Ricky Joslin connect on four passes before calling his own number scoring on a two yard TD run extending the Irish Blizzard lead to 14-6. Adam Maher then booted a 36 yard field goal to open the third quarter giving Clinton a 17-6 advantage.

 

                Following a Shawn Morin interception, Joslin quickly uncorked a 41 yard touchdown pass to Ryan Randall opening up Clinton’s lead to 24-6. The Irish Blizzard would complete the scoring with an eight play 41 yard fourth quarter drive. Workhorse running back Ty Gamble churned out 31 yards on the ground before Joslin hit Mike Murray on a 2 scoring strike. The TD pass gave Clinton a 31-6 lead which they made stand.

 

                Gamble and Joslin paced the Clinton Offense. Joslin finished 11 of 17 passing for 160 yards and two touchdowns. Gamble rushed for 119 yards and one touchdown on 19 carries. Randall led all receivers with 75 yards and one touchdown on 3 catches. Jim Learned added 47 receiving yards on three catches. Mike Murray pulled down four catches for 26 yards and one score. Tight end Steve Meyer hauled in one catch for 12 yards. Stan St. Juste, Jeff Learned, Jon Davies, Jay Berry, and TR Staake gave a strong effort on the offensive line.

 

                For the second consecutive week, the Clinton defense put forth a quality effort. Safety Morin’s interception highlighted a steady performance by the Irish Blizzard secondary. Safety Dave Flaherty and cornerbacks Eric Arsenault and Chris Nieves assisted Morin in the defensive backfield. Linebackers Jamie Cairns, Justin Bailey and Josh Lowe forced one fumble and were stout against the Knights attack. Luis Rodriguez, Roger Blaikie, Mark Monroe, Conor Philbin and Brian Publicover proved to be a formidable defensive line rotation.

 

                Placekicker Adam Maher was again spectacular as he kicked a 36 yard field goal, recorded two touchbacks on kickoffs and successfully converted four extra point attempts. Nate Vazquez and Carlos Vazquez were standouts on special teams.

 

                The Irish Blizzard return to action Saturday as they travel to Springfield to tangle with the Western Mass Blitzin Bears. Kickoff is scheduled for 7pm and American International College.

BLIZZARD SUFFER 21-0 LOSS IN OPENER

Saturday 6/25/11, 5pm  -  Worcester State College

Clinton (0-1)     0     0     0     0     -     0

Worcester (1-0) 7     6     0     8     -     21

WORCESTER-The Clinton Irish Blizzard football club opened the 2011 season with a lackluster effort as the Blizzard were shutout 21-0 by the Worcester Mass Fury in the regular season opener for both teams.

Despite trailing 13-0 at halftime, the Clinton defense played well keeping the Irish Blizzard within striking distance most of the game. The Fury eventually put the game out of reach blocking a punt late in the fourth quarter and falling on it in the endzone to close out the scoring.

The Clinton defense was led by linebackers Jamie Cairns and Justin Bailey. The pair combined for 14 tackles and one sack. Roger Blaikie and Brian Publicover anchored the defensive line while Chris Nieves led the secondary. Nieves recorded a third quarter interception that he returned 59 yards into Fury territory. The Blizzard were unable to capitalize on the return failing to convert a fourth down play.

The Clinton offense struggled most of the day to dig out of bad field position. The Irish Blizzard failed to string together first downs and maintain drives. Credit the Fury defense that held the Clinton offense below 100 total yards for the game and yielded only two first downs in the first half. When Clinton did move the ball Dee Whitehead led the rushing attack netting 31 yards on the ground in the first half. Quarterback Ricky Joslin connected with targets Jim Learned, Mike Murray, and Ryan Randall. Learned led all receivers with 21 yards receiving on a pair of catches.

The Irish Blizzard return to action on Saturday July 9th as they travel to Lawrence, Ma to faceoff against the Granite State Knights. Kickoff is scheduled for 3pm.

TAUNTON- The Taunton Gladiators scored 20 fourth quarter points to rally past the Clinton Irish Blizzard and capture the 2010 EFL Championship. The Irish Blizzard held a 21-6 third quarter advantage before the Gladiators unleashed a furious comeback to end Clinton’s bid for back-to-back EFL titles.
                Clinton got on the board first as Scott Allard’s 33 yard run setup a Dee Whitehead 1 yard touchdown run. Adam Maher’s extra point gave Clinton a 7-0 first quarter lead.

Following a failed extra point, the Irish Blizzard held a narrow 7-6 lead.
                Quarterback John Riccio completed four passes for 44 yards on Clinton’s next possession but a 37 yard field goal attempt by Maher missed by a narrow margin.

                The teams would trade third quarter scores with the Irish Blizzard coming out of the break and marching 75 yards in nine plays. Whitehead and Ricky Joslin combined for 33 rushing yards on the drive before Riccio found Felix Borukhov on a 28 yard touchdown pass. Maher’s extra gave Clinton a commanding 21-6 third quarter lead with 7:11 left in the third quarter. The Gladiators answered four minutes later on a 2 yard touchdown run cutting the deficit to 21-12.
                The fourth quarter belonged to Taunton. The Gladiators would strike with three big plays in the fourth quarter to sink Clinton. The Gladiators scored on an 80 yard touchdown pass, a 60 yard touchdown run and a 32 yard touchdown run on consecutive possessions to storm past the Irish Blizzard and earn their first EFL Championship.

Stanley St. Juste, Jeff Learned, Brandon Beach, Jon Davies, Steve Meyer and A. J. Crane opened holes on the offensive line.

                With the win Taunton finishes the 2010 season with a 12-2 record. Clinton, making their third straight championship game appearance, finishes 11-3 with the defeat.

6'-4" Irish Blizzard Receiver Matt Surette (2005-2008)

----------------------------------------------------------------- 

Blizz support 10/23/2010 fundraiser for former teammate:

-----------------------------------------------------------------
 
 
Former Irish Blizzard WR Matt Surette (2005-2008) was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia earlier this summer, and on September 17th received a bone marrow transplant.

Matt was the team's leading receiver and offensive MVP in 2005. He got off to a quick start to the 2006 season before being sidelined with a knee injury in week 3. Matt returned late in the 2007 season to record 4 TD receptions in the final 2 games of the season. Surette would play 5 games in 2008 recording 5 TD receptions and leading the team in several categories before finally retiring due to recurring knee problems.

Matt Surette had an amazing college career at WPI. Matt was a two-time All-American for the Engineers and in 2006 was inducted into the WPI Hall of Fame. Matt holds virtually every receiving record at the university, including career standards in catches (165), receiving yards (2,588), and touchdown receptions (26). In addition, he had the finest performance by a TE in the history of Division III football by hauling in 17 catches for and eye-popping 362 yards on October 17, 1997 against Springfield College.

A fundraiser has been setup to benefit Matt during his treatment. Please visit the following site for more information:

Clinton Scoring Summary:
3rd:  Whitehead 1 yard run (Maher kick)
4th:  Maher 41 yard field goal 

SPRINGFIELD- The Clinton Irish Blizzard return to the Eastern Football League Championship game by virtue of a 10-6 semifinal road win over the number one seeded Western Mass Blitzin Bears.  It will be the third consecutive trip to the championship game for the Irish Blizzard who defeated the Quincy Miltia in last year’s title game. The Irish Blizzard were powered by a stingy defense and some timely offense while holding on for the road win over the Blitzin Bears.
                Clinton and Western Mass combined for 72 points in a 38-34 Irish Blizzard victory just three weeks ago. The same two teams met Saturday night and while the result was the same, defense ruled the day this time around.
                Clinton’s first half consisted of three drives, two of which stalled in Western Mass territory. Meanwhile, the Irish Blizzard defense forced a three-and-out series, a turnover on downs and cornerback Ronnie Guyton intercepted a Shawn Brady pass before halftime as the teams went into the locker room 0-0 at halftime.
                Beginning the second half, the Irish Blizzard marched 46 yards over 11 plays before missing a 37 yard field goal. Scott Allard and Dee Whitehead combined for 22 yards rushing on the drive. The Clinton defense then created a turnover at midfield as Mike McGonagle and Dave Flaherty forced a fumble that was recovered by the Irish Blizzard and the offense was back at work. Quarterback John Riccio completed 5 passes on an 11 play 50 yard scoring drive. Riccio would eventually find Bryan Sullivan on a key completion down to the one yard line. Two plays later Dee Whitehead plowed in from one yard out giving the Irish Blizzard a 7-0 lead with just 0:50 remaining in the third period.
                 Clinton continued to hold the Blitzin Bears in check forcing consecutive three-and-out series. Riccio went to the air again finding Felix Borukhov for completions of 26 yards and eight yards setting up an Adam Maher 41 yard field goal attempt. Maher drilled the kick extending Clinton’s lead to 10-0 with 8:28 left to play in the 4th period.                The Bears found life and responded with a scoring drive taking only 1:24 off the clock. A Brady touchdown pass and failed extra point cut the Irish Blizzard lead to 10-6. Two plays later a Riccio pass was deflected at the line of scrimmage and intercepted. The Bears would drive down the Clinton 4 yard line and looked to be in the driver’s seat with a first and goal. The Irish Blizzard defense answered the bell. A key Gareth Watts second down tackle followed by consecutive pass breakups by Guyton and Dave Claiser stoned the Bears’ attempt to take the lead.
                The Clinton offense took over needing a pair of first downs to seal the win.  Allard went to work carrying four times for 29 yards allowing the Irish Blizzard to run down the clock on the big semifinal win.
                For the offense, Brandon Beach, Jon Davies, Steve Meyer, AJ Crane, Jeff Learned, and Stanly St. Juste did great work on the offensive line. Allard and Whitehead combined for 86 rushing yards and one score. Riccio completed 14 passes for 134 yards. Borukhov had a big game hauling in 8 catches for 84 yards.
                Defensively, the Irish Blizzard were terrific all evening holding the second ranked scoring offense in the EFL to just six points. The secondary led the way with Guyton, Claiser, Chris Leblanc, and Watts providing blanket coverage most of the night. Linebackers McGonagle and Flaherty teamed with Alejandro Miranda and Brian Learned to hold the Bears run game in check. Roger Blaikie, Luis Rodriguez, Jamie Cairns, Stanley Denesyeux and Brian Publicover anchored the defensive line. Rodriguez had a sack while Blaikie and Publicover deflected passes.

CLINTON- The Clinton Irish Blizzard advanced to the EFL Semifinals with a convincing 24-6 quarterfinal victory over the Charlestown Townies on Sunday. Quarterback John Riccio ran and threw for a touchdown while Dee Whitehead ran for another score. Adam Maher added a forty yard field goal to help send Clinton into the EFL semifinals for the third straight year. Clinton (10-2) will now face the Western Mass Blitzin Bears (11-1) for the right to advance to the EFL championship game.
            The Irish Blizzard got on the board midway through the first period. Whitehead carried five times during an eight play 56 yard scoring drive. Whitehead did the honors plunging in from one yard out sending Clinton to a 7-0 lead. Early in the second period, a Chris Leblanc interception set up a 40 yard Maher field goal giving the Irish Blizzard a 10-0 advantage.
                The Clinton offense continued to roll on their very next possession moving the ball 65 yards over eight plays. Riccio did damage through the air completing four passes for 30 yards including a two yard touchdown toss to Ernie Adams. Adams’ score sent the Irish Blizzard into halftime with a 17-0 lead.
                Townies finally made some noise in the third quarter on a Jon Jones touchdown pass shrinking the Clinton lead to 17-6. The Irish Blizzard ended any hope of a Charlestown comeback with a nine play scoring march. Whitehead and Scott Allard combined for five carries during the drive. Riccio capped off the drive with a one yard touchdown run closing out the scoring and giving the Irish Blizzard the 24-6 lead.
                The Clinton defense was active all night forcing four turnovers and holding the high scoring Townies offense to six points. Leblanc and Ronnie Guyton picked off passes. Leblanc and Roger Blaikie notched fumble recoveries forced by Luis Rodriguez and Brian Learned.  David Claiser chipped with two pass breakups.
                Offensive linemen Stanley St. Juste, Jeff Learned, Brandon Beach, Jon Davies, Steve Meyer, and A. J. Crane were terrific controlling the line of scrimmage. Their work helped Whitehead, Allard, and Ricky Joslin combine for 125 yards rushing. Riccio got ample time in the pass game completing 11 of 18 pass attempts for 137 yards and one score. Adams led all receivers with three catches and one touchdown reception. Lorin Reed, Whitehead, and Jim Learned each contributed a pair of catches.
                Maher’s 40 yard field goal highlighted a great all-around special teams effort. Josh Lowe recovered a fumble on kickoff coverage. Allard and Ryan Aldrich picked up key special teams tackles. Chris Nieves was spectacular retunring punts and kickoffs.

CLINTON – The Irish Blizzard scored 23 second quarter points to help bury the Hyde Park Seminoles 30-0 in the 2010 home opener at Fuller Field. Clinton got three touchdown runs from Dee Whiethead to lead the offensive attack. The defense posted its first shutout of 2010 while getting interceptions from Alejandro Miranda, Dave Claiser, and Gareth Watts. Prior to kickoff, State Representative Harold Naughton, State Senator Jennifer Flanagan, and Town Administrator Michael Ward took part in a brief ceremony to honor Clinton’s 2009 EFL Championship team. 
                 Clinton’s second possession sparked its offensive attack as John Riccio connected with Felix Borukhov on a 29 yard pass completion on a key 3rd and 18 play.  Two plays later, Whitehead sprinted to paydirt from 5 yards out and the Irish Blizzard led 7-0 early in the second quarter.
                Following an Adam Maher 28 yard field goal that extended Clinton’s lead to 10-0, Irish Blizzard cornerback Claiser pulled down an interception and raced 40 yards giving the Irish Blizzard great field position. Riccio immediately hit tight end Ernie Adams for 21 yards and fullback Ricky Joslin for 8 yards before Whitehead scored on a 1 yard touchdown run giving Clinton a sudden 17-0 lead.
                Clinton’s final possession of the half would yield more points. A 14 yard Scott Allard run followed by a pair of completions to Mike Murray and one to Jim Learned landed the Irish Blizzard at the two yardline. A one yard touchdown plunge by Whitehead capped off a 23 point second quarter after Clinton’s extra point was blocked by the Seminoles.
                The Irish Blizzard defense continued to stifle Hyde Park as Clinton’s offense put the game out of reach in the third quarter. A 49 yard Whitehead scamper was followed by a 9 yard Joslin run giving the Irish Blizzard possession at the Seminoles’ 17 yardline. Riccio then went to the air and found Borukhov from 17 yards out closing out the scoring and giving the Irish Blizzard a comfortable 30-0 third quarter lead. The defense would make the lead stand while holding the Seminoles scoreless over the final quarter and recording the shutout.
                The Irish Blizzard got solid line play out of Jeff Learned, Jay Berry, Nate Orcutt, Jon Davies, T. R. Staake, and Josue Diaz. The offense was led by Whitehead’s 93 rushing yards and three touchdowns. Allard racked up 55 yards rushing while Joslin chipped in with 16 yards on the ground. Riccio finished 11 of 21 passing for 164 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. Adams led all receivers with three catches for 39 yards. Borukhov (46 yards and 1 touchdown), Jim Learned (30 yards), and Murray (12 yards) each pulled in two receptions.
                The stingy Clinton defense was led by its secondary unit. Claiser (interception), Watts (interception), Chris Leblanc, Ronnie Guyton, and Chris Nieves all played well in the defensive backfield. Dave Flaherty and Miranda (interception) had standout games at linebacker while Brian Publicover and Jamie Cairns led the defensive line play.
                The Irish Blizzard remain home next week as they host the Granite State Knights (1-1). Kickoff is set for 7pm Saturday at Fuller Field.

Clinton Scoring Summary:
2nd: Randall 44 yard pass from Riccio (Maher kick) 

LAWRENCE – Returning two of the top three statistical defenses from 2009, Clinton and Taunton squared off in what expected to be a defensive struggle. The season opener for both teams met expectations as a third quarter defensive touchdown by Taunton was enough to edge Clinton 14-7 in a tight defensive struggle. Facing relentless pressure, quarterback John Riccio led the offense finishing 15 of 29 passing for 203 yards and 1 touchdown in a game effort. Safety Matt Guimond recorded a fumble recovery for a Clinton defense that was terrific all evening.
                After a scoreless first period that included an 8 play drive by the Irish Blizzard, Taunton struck first. The Gladiators capitalized on a 45 yard run and a personal foul penalty to take a 7-0 lead midway through the second quarter. The Irish Blizzard answered immediately with Riccio connecting on a 44 yard touchdown strike to Ryan Randall tying the game at 7-7.
                Clinton missed a golden opportunity late in the half. A Matt Guimond fumble recovery gave the Irish Blizzard a first down on the Gladiators 11 yard line. The Irish Blizzard gambled on a 4th and 3 play from the four yard line and came up short.  The score remained 7-7 at halftime.
                Coming out of the half, the Irish Blizzard drove 37 yards in five plays highlighted by completions of 14 yards and 17 yards to Scott Allard and Felix Borukhov. With a 1st and 10 from the Taunton 28 yard line, Riccio was picked off at the 18 yardline and Tauton returned the interception 82 yards for a touchdown giving them a 14-7 third quarter advantage.
                The Irish Blizzard could only threaten once more in the fourth quarter. A nine play drive highlighted by a 16 yard Dee Whitehead run and a 30 yard completion to Ernie Adams landed Clinton at the Taunton 21 yardline. Clinton failed to convert another 4th and 2 situation and the Irish Blizzard were stopped on downs by an opportunistic Gladiators defense. Taunton would go on to stop Clinton’s final three possessions and hold on for the 14-7 win.
            The offense was led by its passing game. Adams (3 receptions / 62 yards), Borukhov (4/46), Randall (2/44, 1TD), Allard (2/25), Lorin Reed (2/8), and Mike Murray (2/18) all recorded multiple catches.
                The defense was solid, limiting the Gladiators offense to one touchdown on the evening. Luis Rodriguez led the front four with a sack and a tackle-for-loss. Mike McGonagle paced the linebackers with two tackles-for-loss. The Irish Blizzard got great secondary play from cornerbacks Ronnie Guyton and Dave Claiser as well as safeties Chris Leblanc, Gareth Watts, and Guimond.
                The Irish Blizzard return to action on Saturday July 10th for the 2010 home opener vs. the Hyde Park Seminoles. Kickoff is set for 7pm at Fuller Field. Kickoff will be preceded by a brief ceremony celebrating the 2009 EFL championship.

IRISH BLIZZARD'S HOME FIELD, FULLER FIELD, CROWNED WORLD'S OLDEST BASEBALL FIELD

Clinton ball field crowned as world’s oldest

WORCESTER TELEGRAM & GAZETTE  

By Karen Nugent

 CLINTON— It’s official. The town has made it into “Guinness World Records” — and it’s not for that tired urban myth about having the most bars.

Fuller Field, at 450 High St., has been designated by London-based Guinness as the oldest baseball diamond to have continuously hosted baseball, which it has done since 1878.

The record was entered Aug. 29, after more than three years of tedious work by Anthony J. Bastarache, author of “An Extraordinary Town,” a book about Clinton’s history he published in 2005. He was notified Sept. 11, and the record was posted on the Guinness Web site yesterday........

........It is unknown how long the rather small and nondescript Fuller Field, now used mostly by the IRISH BLIZZARD, a semi-pro football team, has existed......
