Nipmuc Football Earns Shutout Ahead of Road Stretch

Facing a stretch of four road games in five weeks, the Nipmuc football team made the most of its second to last regular season home game by beating Sutton 38-0 last Saturday.
The Warriors rolled on both offense and defense despite losing senior Nate Gould, arguably the team's biggest weapon on both sides of the ball, to a season-ending knee injury.
"The win was good for the kids, they have been hanging in there and continuing to work hard despite a tough start to the season," said head coach Dave Tupper. "Losing Nate was a tough blow for us, we had a lot built around him, but the kids have stayed determined."
Nipmuc will need to spread the ball around more than expected without Gould and was able to do so against Sutton. Rich Broni ran for more than
130 yards and scored three touchdowns, breaking off a 60-yard score in the second half. Quarterback Judah Dishington tossed a pair of touchdown passes to Joe Cormier.
The duo connected on a 19-yard score in the first quarter and a 65-yard strike in the second.
"Joe is a talented athlete," Tupper said. "We will utilize him and try to spread it around between Rich and Joe Schiloski and with Juda throwing the ball."
Nipmuc also put together a strong game on defense as it kept Sutton off the board, as well as in the kicking game. Connor Woods was a perfect 5-for-5 on extra point tries and added a 23-yard field goal in the second half.
The Warriors will turn their attention to a road game Friday, October 4, night against Tyngsboro, a team that features a high-powered offense that has scored 140 points over its first three games, all of which have been wins. "They are a really good team," Tupper said. "They beat Littleton who beat us in the first game of the year. We have watched a lot of their game film and they are a talented team with a great quarterback."
"They throw the ball all over the field," Tupper added, "We are going to try to put together a plan to stop that."
Nipmuc stays on the road for a Friday, October 11, showdown at St. Bernard's before coming home for the final time in the regular season against Grafton and road games at Assabet and Blackstone-Millville/Hopedale.
"There are no cakewalks," Tupper said
