Rivalry Renewed

The Boston Bandits renewed their 22 year rivalry with the New Hampshire Nor’easter after a year reprieve by beating them 36-12 in Manchester.

The Nor’easter got off to a quick lead when Alexis Colon found his favorite target Mark Roberts for a 9 yard touchdown pass. The extra point hit the post and was no good, placing the Bandits in a familiar deficit 6-0. But like the week before the Bandits stormed back again. Andre Williams took the first hand-off 60 yards eluding multiple tacklers on his way to the end zone. Devon Zollarcoffer of the Bandit defense picked up a backwards pass and took it to the end zone quickly putting the Bandits ahead to stay 14-6.

Giovanni Sanders found R-Jay Vereen Jr. for a 30 yard touchdown strike in the second quarter and Andre Williams added a 10 yard touchdown run before the half upping the Bandit lead to 29-6. The Bandits kept the pressure on in the third quarter when R-Jay Vereen Jr. ran a QB draw for a 24 yard score. Hermes Lima remained perfect with his fourth PAT and a 36-6 lead. Alexis Colon would find Mark Roberts again on a 32 yard pass to close the scoring at 36-12.

The Bandits (3-0) next travel to the Connecticut Panthers (3-1) on Saturday August 17th for a 7pm game, while the Nor’easter (0-3) will host the Southern New England Admirals (1-2) in Manchester at 5pm.

Boston’s Andre Williams takes a hand-off from Giovanni Sanders during the Week 4 game versus the Nor’easter.
