TRAIP ACADEMY 37, OLD ORCHARD BEACH 6
OLD ORCHARD -- It didn’t take long for the Traip Academy Rangers to put their first loss behind them. With 24 second-quarter points they also put Old Orchard Beach in the rear-view mirror and rolled to a 37-6 Class C win on a chilly windswept Friday night.
Traip improved to 6-1 with the win, using Corey Aldecoa’s touchdown runs of 2, 22, and 31 yards to take an 18-6 lead.
The Seagulls entered on a five-game win streak and scored on their first possession of the game then were stymied by the Rangers’ shutdown defense which intercepted four passes and held dangerous junior back Joe Gildrad to 32 yards on 13 carries.
Traip improved to 6-1. OOB is now 5-2.
