Newburyport falls to Bedford, looks for positives

(Continued)

With eight minutes to play in the second half, the Buccaneers doubled their advantage when Bedford defensive back Bobby McDonald intercepted Newburyport QB Michael Shay at the Clipper 30 and sprinted down the Newburyport sidelines to make it a 13-0 advantage.

The Clippers were able to move the ball against the stingy Buccaneer defense in the first half behind Bradbury who rushed for 68 yard in the first two quarters. The option was the big play for Newburyport as the speedy back was able to find some nice daylight on the outside.

“They’ve got great team speed, but so do we,” said Gaudiano, who also lost two-way lineman Seamus Sullivan to a knee injury. “Now we are a little banged up and we are going to have to try and regroup.”

Shay connected with six different receivers for Newburyport, including a nifty 20-yard hookup with Drew Bourdeau on fourth down to move the chains. Junior Jonathan Bajko caught a pair of balls and also deflected away a would-be touchdown pass on defense in the second half.
