The East Greenwich Avengers came out strong Wednesday night against the Moses Brown Quakers at Carcieri Field, and stayed in front the entire game, winning 25-13 and a berth in the Super Bowl Sunday. The Avengers haven't been in a Super Bowl since 2006.
They will play Middletown, the only team that's beaten EG this season. Middletown beat Narragansett 34-14 in their semi-final contest.
The Avengers dominated the first half, with a touchdown by Carney Crawford (no extra point) in the first quarter and a TD by Meran Topalian in the second quarter. Off a fumble by Moses Brown with 2 minutes left in the half, Alex Cleary scored a touchdown (no extra point).
The Quakers got on the scoreboard at the end of the second quarter, with a touchdown by Andrew Howard, bringing the score to 19-7 at the half.
The third quarter went scoreless, but early in the fourth quarter Moses Brown got a opening when Nicholas Liguori ran 77 yards for a touchdown, bringing the score to 19-13, and EG fumbled the punt return, returning possession to the Quakers.
But Cameron Rocke came back with an interception, leading to a touchdown by Alex Cleary for a 25-13 lead that held.
