Chiefs improve to 3-2 after 27-0 victory in Milford

The Laconia Chiefs U5 team traveled  to Milford for a very early 8 a.m. kickoff. The unusually early start didn't seem to slow the Laconia squad down as they were able to take the opening drive and march it down the field before fullback Nolen Perrino punched the ball in from 4 yards out. Wing Kaleb Daignault tacked on the extra point and the Chiefs had an early 7- 0 lead. The Laconia defense took the field and showed the crowd that the day was going to be theirs. Laconia continuously stymied the Milford ground attack, dropping them for losses on almost every carry. DE Michael Frakes was able to recover a fumble (his first of two on the day) and give the ball back to his offense, which was quick to capitalize as tailback Jackson Reulke found a seam behind guard Cooper French and tackle Aaron Williams and raced 38 yards for the touchdown. The extra point attempt was no good but the lead was now 13-0.
With their ground game at a standstill, the Mustangs took to the air. Linebackers Phil Nichols and Dakota McCoy were relentless in their pursuit of the QB and both recorded a couple of big sacks. The Chiefs gained possession once again and moved the ball down the field. This time Reulke found Daignault in the back of the endzone on a nifty halfback toss pass. QB Logan Dee added the extra point and Laconia had a 20-0 halftime lead.
The second half was much like the first. DT's Garrett Mango and "Big" Jon Cote stuffed the run game, while CB's Rashaun Magdich and Reulke shut down the Milford receivers. The offense wasn't done either. Dee was able to bootleg around the left side and followed his big tackle Brandon Marceau 35 yards to paydirt. Tailback Colton Roy, making a nice cut back move, put an exclamation point on the day with the extra point and the Chiefs had a solid 27-0 victory. The Chiefs' record now climbs to 3-2 as they will play host to Keene this weekend.
