After what some may say is the best game in league history, the Nashua Vikings survived against a top-notch Blue Balls Dynasty squad to capture their first title in franchise history. A congratulations goes out to a hard fought and well deserved Vikings team that won as a team. Not one player stood out amongst the others, everyone contributed in their own way. The Spring season was theirs to capture from opening kickoff. After a bitter loss last year in the playoffs, they rallied together as men to overcome the odds and defeat all opponents that tried to stand in their way. The Blue Balls Dynasty was by far their toughest battle in their path to greatness. The Vikings average margin of victory during their undefeated run was 24 points; Blue Balls took them into OT and lost on what will forever be known as “The Conversion.”
What a great season for not only the Vikings and the Blue Balls, but the other 14 teams involved. The league continues to grow not only in numbers, but in brotherhood as well. We have all embarked on a expedition of sizable proportions to which greatness can be achieved through football and also on the journey of life and growing as men. Football isn’t about winning or losing, it’s about how you play the game, and how you treat others. This, and this only, is how we will be judged as men at the of the day. The memories of the games and the plays will forever be cemented in our minds. Thank you to everyone this season, who watched, followed and played this session. It was well worth the price of admission. ~Bruce

In the first time in our history, the much celebrated and never duplicated, All-Star game took place before the playoffs. To steal a tagline from major league baseball, “this time it means something.” The winner of this game, gets home field advantage in the finals.
After a controversial coin flip, the South All-Stars took the field on offense against the puddles and the North All-Stars. It didn’t take long for the Blue Balls players to hookup in exhibition as they do in regular season. QB Dave Martel dropped back and found Jay Vance in the back of the endzone to take a 7 zip lead to start the game off. Just three plays later Vance struck again. While on defense, he jumped a route and the ball came right into his hands as he took it to the endzone for 6. League MVP, Bill Savary was feeling slightly left out, so Martel then threw it as far as he could and Savary bodied his way to the ball for his first TD of the game. With the score 19-0 at the half, the North side needed to rally big rally if they wanted the highly coveted homefield advantage. The North might have found just what they needed after watching the halftime show. Nashua born musicians, Mandy Moore and Ray LaMontagne performed a cover of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” that got the crowd going singing and moving in unison and also got momentum on the North’s side.
Dylan Berry came out of the lockerroom with a vengeance; he connected with Jerry Brown and Greg Cotreau on multiple passes until Billy Felt was able to spin into the endzone to pull them within 13 points. The momentum unfortunately didn’t last long. Jay Vance of the South, caught his second TD on the next drive, then picked off another pass to set up his third. Greg Cotreau of the North was able to keep the score respectable as he caught two TD catches to close out the game, too little, too late. The South earned themselves home field advantage, while Jay Vance of the Blue Balls Dynasty, earned himself All-Star game MVP honors. Final stat line of the day: 8 receptions, 123 yards, 3 TD’s, 2 INT’s and 1 defensive TD. Good game to watch, but an even better game to write about. South wins 37-18.
