Valley Tech Football Out to 3-0 Start

Blackstone Valley Tech's football team scored north of 30 points for the third straight week and rolled to a 3-0 record with Saturday's 33-6 win over Worcester Tech. Senior quarterback Nic Wojnar threw three touchdown passes and junior Ben Reiffarth ran for a touchdown and caught two more scores.
"We came out strong right away," said BVT head coach Jim Archibald. "Our offense played well and our defense really held them in check, they had trouble moving the ball and we stopped them on fourth down on the longest drive they had."
The Beavers forced a punt on the first Worcester possession and took over on their own five-yard line. They proceeded to march 95 yards on 15 plays, mixing in both run and pass. The drive nearly stalled out with Valley Tech facing a fourth and 20 from the 21-yard line. Archibald elected to go for it rather than attempt a long field goal, and Wojnar hit Reiffath in the back corner of the end zone for the game's first score. The Beavers' second touchdown also came via a fourth down conversion from the five-yard-line.
"We are confident in our athletes, so we had a lot of confidence in their ability to convert," said Archibald. "Having a QB like Nic allows us to do a variety of things. He called an audible on the first touchdown pass and made a great throw."
Wojnar rushed for 102 yards on 11 carries, despite having a pair of long runs called back for penalties. He has also been an anchor for the Valley Tech defense. The senior linebacker had 11 tackles against Worcester and leads all of Central Mass with 42 stops on the season. Reiffarth is also atop the district standings with his nine touchdowns.
"All in all, we were able to run for 300 yards last week," said Archibald. "It's a credit to our offensive line, fullback, tight end, wide outs, everyone. We did a nice job on the edge, holding blocks without too many penalties. Overall we were pleased with the balance."
BVT got 48 yards rushing from Reiffath, 40 yards and a touchdown from junior running back Devin Kempster and 74 yards and the first touchdown of the year from senior Chris Nazzaro, a 50-yard scamper in the fourth quarter. Nazzaro also had a big play on defense, hitting the Eagles' quarterback to cause an errant throw and halt a drive that had reached Valley Tech territory. Defensive ends Joe Trettel and Brady Neyland helped control the edge and tackles Mark Brownell and Mike Salerno held their own on the defensive line.
"Those two are so big and strong, they are always double teamed and it lets the linebackers roam and get to the ball," said Archibald. "Our defensive coordinator, Matt Blood, does a great job with those guys. They get after it and play fast and play hard."
The 3-0 Beavers will host 1-2 Quaboag this Saturday at 2 p.m. The Cougars blew out Keefe Tech 31-6 last weekend. "They have a lot of guys back from last year and they are coming off their first win of the year," said Archibald. "They move the ball well so we have to be ready to play. People may think we are the favorites, so hopefully we can come out and play with some emotion."
