The Brunswick School football team ended its season with a 22-8 win over host Williston Northampton Saturday in an Erickson League matchup in Northampton, Mass.
With the win, the Bruins concluded their season with a record of 5-3.
“We lost a lot of starters from last year, so going into the season we didn’t know what to expect,” Bruins coach Jarrett Shine said. “As the season went on, we came together as a team. We lost to three really good teams, so 5-3 is a good record. I’m proud of what we accomplished.”
Senior tight end Harrison Caponiti caught two touchdown passes from senior quarterback Nick Henkel for Brunswick. Junior wide receiver Cornelius Johnson hauled in a pass from Henkel for a touchdown for the Bruins, who totaled 314 yards of offense. Henkel passed for 252 yards.
“We kept it interesting,” Shine said. “We had trouble moving the ball a little bit, which was a surprise, but defensively, we played very well.”
Matt Restieri intercepted a pass for Brunswick, while teammate Nick Villis forced a fumble that was recovered by Lachlan Rosato.
Brunswick limited Williston Northampton to 185 yards of total offense. The Bruins say good-bye to 23 seniors, including Henkel.
“This was a big senior class and I’m going to miss them,” Shine said. “Nick had a great three years as quarterback, without him we wouldn’t have won as many games. This was a successful season for us.”
