Game 2 (Friday, September 12, 2014)

 MARTHA'S VINEYARD 13

 BRIGHTON 28

Brighton 28, Martha's Vineyard 13: The Vineyarders found themselves trailing early in their game against the Bengals and could never catch up to the host club, dropping their second game of the season.

For Brighton, it was the season-opener and the Bengals appeared ready and waiting for the island visitors.

After falling behind, 14-0, Martha's Vineyard (0-2) got back into it with a 10-yard scoring strike from Mike Mussell to Jacob Cardoza. James Fashin booted the extra point.

However, the host club scored on its next possession and the Vineyarders found themselves in a 14-point hole once again.

MV got on the board again when Mussell connected on a 20-yard TD aerial to Curtis Farell.

MV is off until Sept. 27 when they open Eastern Athletic Conference play at Bishop Feehan.


 

Game 1 (Friday, September 5, 2014)

 

 MARTHA'S VINEYARD 13
 BEDFORD 20

Bedford 20, Martha's Vineyard 13: Vineyarders' coach Don Herman wasn't inclined to punch a wall even though his team lost to the Buccaneers in the non-league opener for both teams in Bedford.

"We were down 7-0 last year at the half, "Herman said referring to last year's 21-0 loss to the Buccaneers. "We didn't get a first down last year against these guys until the third quarter. We made some strides.

"There are some definite positives to take out of this. Obviously, there are some things we have to work on.

"That's what a nonleague game is for. They're a division above us. We fought hard and I feel better tonight than I did at this time last year."

One positive would be the passing of quarterback Mike Mussell, who missed much of last season due to injury.

Mussell completed 13-of-22 passes for 164 yards including an 11-yard touchdown pass to Ben Clark with 5:39 left in the first half, which gave the Vineyarders a 6-0 lead at halftime.

After Bedford ran off 20 unanswered points, Mussell engineered a 77-yard, fourth-quarter drive that culminated with a 22 yard touchdown pass to Curtis Farrell with 2:51 remaining.

When James Sashin kicked the extra point, the Vineyarders trailed 20-13. And when they forced Bedford to punt, they had one last chance. But a drive stalled on Bedford's 42 as time expired.

"The kids battled which was encouraging," Herman said. "That's definitely a positive take from this. That's a very skilled and well-coached team we played tonight.

"We had some opportunities and that's all we could look for. We had the ball in our hands at the end of the game. There were a couple situations, defensively, where we misaligned and blew some responsibilities. That was the difference in the game for us."

Blowing responsibilities was especially crucial when Bedford fullback, Aaron Lee, had the ball in his hands.

Lee gained 273 yards and scored three touchdowns on 35 carries.

Lee's one-yard dive tied the score early in the third.

His 67-yard sprint with 2:13 left in the third gave Bedford a 13-6 lead.

And after the Bucs recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff, he dashed 35 yards for his team's final score.

"They didn't do too many things we didn't know were coming," Herman said. "When you don't align properly then you don't do your job."
