Seneca wins Home Opener and Season Opener

Posted Friday, September 14, 2007 by Douglas Melegari
The tradition is back! The Friday Night Seneca Football games under the lights! The game drew hundreds of people to the Golden Eagles stadium and fans did not leave disappointed with a 28 to 21 win over the Lenape Indians.

However, the game was not a smooth ride and it left some in the crowd nervous during Friday Night. In only the third play, quarterback Tom Massucci suffered a serious foot injury.

With junior varsity and back up quarterback Josh Brown unable to fill in for Massucci due to an appendix failure recovery, it was up to Bill Limpert to be the back up quarterback. Bill admitted he was nervous during the game, but he did not allow that to get to him. Bill was explosive on the field. Meanwhile, Sean Carrol, Tim Meise and Trent Waddle all had touchdowns. One of the best plays of the night was when Vince Henry intercepted the football which assured victory for Seneca since this was at the end of the fourth quarter. Seneca also went for two point conversions after the touchdowns and most were a sucess.

The Seneca Marching Band put on an energetic half time show and the Seneca Cheerleaders kept the crowd excited. Everyone kept to their faith that the Seneca Golden Eagles would pull off a victory, Friday Night. Seneca Head Coach Bill Fisher had a few words to sum up Friday Night. " It is a team win, it is a school win. The crowd, the kids, the green shirts, everything the school does, Mr Furgione. You win games like this because of the people you have around you and that is what Seneca is all about, about one big happy family. When we are down in situations, nobody quits. The fans do not quit. The principal doesn't quit. The kids do not quit. The coaches do not quit. Dougie M. does not quit. Ok. That is what it is all about. It is a character win for us."

Seneca will prepare to take on the Shawnee Renegades which occurs on Thursday, September 20, 2007. In the meantime, Tom Massucci deserves a lot of credit when he stood by his team the entire game, when he simply could have gone to the emergency room.
