Playing their last home game of the season, the U5 Laconia Chiefs hosted the Hudson Bears this past Sunday. The Chiefs are in the midst of the playoff hunt and needed a win to keep their hopes alive. They received the opening kickoff and started their march down the field. Utilizing both sides of the field, tailback Jackson Reulke let the crowd know what kind of day it was going to be. He followed his fullback Phil Nichols right up the gut for a 35 yard scamper. He also tacked on the extra point to give his team an early 7-0 lead. The defense came out just as fired up and shut down the Bears straight "T" offense. Linebackers Nolen Perrino and Nichols kept the Hudson run game to little or no gains with every carry. When the offense got the ball back, it was Reulke (19 carries for 127 yds and 3 TDs) finding a seam behind guard Cooper French and tackle Aaron Williams and racing 47 yards for his second touchdown on the day. The score gave the Chiefs a 13-0 halftime lead.
The second half opened up with more stifling defense by the youngsters from Laconia. D tackles Garrett Mango and Anthony Coote continuously smashed through the Bear's offensive line and stopped their backs in the backfield. The Chief's offense took over where they left off and pushed the ball down the field. QB Logan Dee made a great fake to his tailback and was able to boot it around the left end for a nice 18 yard touchdown run. Laconia recovered a muffed kick return attempt by Hudson and ate up over 8 minutes driving the ball down the field. Reulke finished off his day with a walk-in 5 yard touchdown and then threw the halfback toss to Perrino to put the nail in the Hudson coffin, 26-0. The Chiefs have one away game at Goffstown left and could finish as high as third with another victory.

The Sant Bani soccer team lost a heartbreaker at home on Wednesday to the Proctor JV1 team 6-4. Ahead 4-1 halfway through the second half, thanks to three goals by senior co-captain Harrison Evans, some great goalkeeping again by Ander Trevino Aizpurua and an unassisted goal by junior Mohamed Sapry, things suddenly fell apart for the now 4-4 Sant Bani squad. Five unanswered Proctor goals within a 20 minute span turned what appeared to be an upset win into disbelief.
Sant Bani coach Todd Schongalla said after the game, "For some reason, we fell apart defensively. Fatigue made it hard for us to get the ball out of our own end. We need to do a better job of clearing the ball and maintaining possession." The team hopes to return to a winning record on Saturday, as they travel to Bethlehem and visit the White Mountain School.
