South Coast football results and highlights for Thursday 24th November

Here’s a look at Thursday’s high school action for the SouthCoast football teams:

GNB VOC-TECH 24, DIMAN 7

The Bears rode their defense to win on Thanksgiving Day over the visiting Bengals. A pair of pick sixs by Isander Algarin and Nasir Cox accounted for two of Voc-Tech’s three touchdowns in the game.

A 50-yard completion from Nick Boucher to Justin Andrade set up a four-yard touchdown run by senior linebacker Joseph Brightman.

GNB Voc-Tech's Matt Harding (50) has a firm grip on the Director's Cup which is awarded to the winning team in the annual Diman Voc Tech versus GNB Voc Tech Thanksgiving Day game.

Connor McManus connected on a 37-yard field goal in addition to knocking down all three PATs.

“The guys have worked hard all year in practice and kept learning,” said Justin Cruz, Technical Director of GNB Voc-Tech. “It has allowed them to win three of our last four matches. Our squad was inexperienced to start the year, and with good senior leadership our youngsters have continued to learn and play quickly.

Today was a good day for the seniors and a good way to ‘pass the torch on to the next group of guys’.

Isander Algarin (70) celebrates with his teammates after he intercepted a touchdown return in the first quarter to give the GNB Voc-Tech Bears a 14-0 lead over Deman.

The Bears finished the year with a 4-7 record.

Bishop Behan 48 Bishop Stang 8

The Shamrocks rounded out the Catholic Central League championship thanks to five touchdowns from Nicholas Janchuk.

“Bishop Feihan put in a solid game on the ground, and we found it difficult to slow down,” said Bishop Stang’s head coach, Dennis Golden. “The credit goes to them because they are a very, very good team. Nick Yanchuk comes in at the back, and they do a great job blocking him.”

GNB Voc-Tech's Justin Andrade tackles a pass over Aldeman defensive back Charlie Vernon.  The reception brought the Bears deep into Deman territory and would set up the Bears' first touchdown of the game.

The Spartans were without Michael Golden, Dominic Cavallo and Wyatt Bergeron.

Luca Cincottta had 10 carries for 42 yards, including 1 touchdown and a 2-point conversion.

Aiden Cardoza ran the ball hard, finishing with 15 carries for 55 yards while Tyrone Gomes led the offense with 91 yards on 15 carries.

Jackson Tingley Prince recently moved from linebacker to free safety on defense and has been the difference maker for Stang throughout the game.
