Hendriks Shines in BVT Varsity Debut Under Center

The Blackstone Valley Tech football team rolled to a win over Millbury in its season opener and the variety debut for quarterback Reece Hendriks, but the Beavers will likely show a very different attack heading into a Week 2 showdown Saturday against Sutton.
"Overall we were happy with the performance," Valley Tech head coach James Archibald said after the 22-6 triumph. "Winning the first game is always a good thing. We certainly made our fair share of mistakes, but when we needed to make plays we certainly were able to."
Senior quarterback Reece Hendriks earned his first varsity win with a solid performance, completing 13-of-20 passes for 187 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Hendriks connected with J.D. Antaya on a 52-yard strike late in the third quarter to give the Beavers a three-score lead and effectively put the game out of reach.
Hendriks added a touchdown pass to Jordyn Amero in the second quarter. He was also able to convert a pair of two-point conversions, connecting with Conner Polymeros and Conner Christensen following his own touchdown passes. Polymeros put the Beavers on the board in the first quarter with a two-yard touchdown run.
The BVT defense pitched a shutout until the final minute of the game, when Millbury added a touchdown with 44 seconds left. Senior cornerback Brandon Lira and sophomore linebacker Jared Loiselle leading the way with six tackles each. Senior free safety Tyler Truett added four tackles and a pair of pass breakups.
Even after the victory, Archibald was left wanting more from both sides of the ball.
"As a team we need to execute our assignments better," he said. "We had too many missed blocks and tackles. Hopefully, with more reps, this stuff will correct itself as the weeks go on."
Valley Tech turns its attention to Sutton on Saturday in the home opener, and the coach feels defensive discipline will be paramount as his team readies for a deceptive attack.
"They run a triple option offense with a lot of wrinkles," Archibald said, "it will be important defensively to know our assignments."
After throwing the ball 20 times in the opener, the Beavers will likely have a different look offensively as a deep backfield, including Polymeros, Antaya, Sam Niro, and Aiden Fitzgerald are likely to split carries.
"Offensively we need to be able to run the ball better," Archibald said, "and take some pressure off Reece."
