High School Football Notebook: A victorious night to remember for the Bulldogs

From staff reports

(Continued from page 1)

Now that the job is his, Greenberg is showing what he can do. Even with a collegiate baseball career looming, Greenberg wanted to play football his senior year, saying that the competition helps him as a pitcher in baseball.

WITH 90 SECONDS left to play, South Portland was on Bonny Eagle's 2 yard line.

Whether the Red Riots scored would make no difference in the game's outcome. Bonny Eagle had already secured victory with 33 second-half points and led 46-21.

But don't say the next few plays didn't matter.

Not the way Bonny Eagle senior linebacker Robie Martin blitzed to throw Riots quarterback Duncan Preston for a 2-yard loss. Or the way South Portland back Joey DiBiase broke multiple tackles in the backfield and lunged forward on fourth down to get the needed 3 yards for a first down at the 1.

Big Isaiah Reynolds, the BE starting nose guard and left tackle, stuffed Preston for a 1-yard loss.

With five seconds left, South Portland Coach Steve Stinson called a timeout. A pass by Preston was dropped, ending the game but sending a message: South Portland will try to keep making plays every second it's on the field.

And that was fine with Bonny Eagle.

"Coach Stinson and I are good friends. He's a great coach and his team's taken his type of philosophy I think of playing right to the end and we're going to do the same," BE Coach Kevin Cooper said. "I was very happy with our guys to rise up at the end and not allow a touchdown."
