Thunder Savio 11s fall 30-7 to Farmingdale


The Savio 11s faced the Farmingdale Hawks at Community Park on Sunday and suffered their first loss of the season, 30-7.  Garden City fought to the end and was only outscored by one point in the second half.

Though the team took a hard hit with this loss, it is almost sure to persevere for the rest of the season and put this loss behind it. Though the season’s scoreless defensive song has been completely butchered, and the offense was wrecked hit after hit in the first half, RB Henry Campolettano completely ignored the score and ran around the outside to put six points on the board in the third quarter. TE Luke Savio made a huge block which was a gigantic help on the touchdown.

For the point after, QB Charlie Ruoff ran up the middle behind offensive lineman Aiden Kehoe and Michael Manley who had cut down the Farmingdale defensive linemen – giving the Thunder their first successful extra point of the season.

The Thunder defense only allowed one touchdown in the second half and was led by their defensive linemen Walker Hayes, John David Scianablo, James Sorohan, Luke Herrera, and Antonio Ordas. Another key defensive player was safety John Sardelis.

The Thunder Savio 11s look to keep playing like they did in the first three weeks for the rest of the season and to learn from such a humbling loss. Hopefully the next home game vs Franklin Square at 12:30pm will be an improvement from this week. Go Thunder!
