Weequahic2013-1The Hillbillies and the Indians met at Doc Goeltz Field yesterday, and the Weequahic Indians came away with a 27-0 win. Verona couldn’t muster any of the things that have been its strengths in past games: Quarterback Frank Ferrari was injured early in the match-up and left the game. Senior running back Matt McKeown, who has been averaging more than 80 yards rushing this season, was held to just 40 yards on Saturday.Weequahic2013-2

After Ferrari left the game, the QB job fell to a freshman. Zack Zaccone, who was a force to be reckoned with on the Verona Eagles, showed he’s got potential in the years ahead for the Hillbillies. He was six for 13, for 70 yards. Weequahic2013-3

Mark Riggio, a sophomore, was tasked with a variety of roles throughout the afternoon, rushing and blocking, and even stepping into the QB slot for a time. Despite it all, he managed to beat his rushing average per game, putting up 18 yards on the afternoon.Weequahic2013-4

The Hillbillies struggled throughout the afternoon to contain large Weequahic line. Quinn Cummings, Mike Cifaretto, Matt Riccitelli and Luke Weiss teamed for several stops, and Weiss broke through at one point to sack Weequahic QB Kedar Clarke. Verona is now 4-3 on the season and faces Newark East Side next Saturday at home.Weequahic2013-5
