Warde defeats Ludlowe, 27-12

The Fairfield Warde football team overcame an early 12-0 deficit and posted a 27-12 victory over Fairfield Ludlowe at Tetreau-Davis Field on Thanksgiving.
Brandon Bisack threw three touchdowns passes to Ryan Brown and coach Duncan Dellavolpe’s Mustangs finished the season with a 6-5 record.
Daleek Chambers and Chris Howell scored touchdowns for coach Vin Camera’s Falcons (4-7).
Brown was Warde’s MVP, while Howell took home MVP honors for Ludlowe.
“To have a winning season with this group is special,” Dellavolpe said. “We played as close to a (complete) well-played game as we could.”
Ludlowe took a 6-0 lead on its first play from scrimmage, when Chambers raced 80 yards up the sideline for a score.
After Warde’s second empty series to start the game, Ludlowe quarterback Bryan Pacewicz hooked up with Mitch Wykoff for a 65-yard gain to the Warde 5-yard line.
Howell bulldozed his way into the end zone from there, and Ludlowe led 12-0 with 6:18 remaining in the first quarter.
Warde closed within 12-7 on Bisack’s 8-yard touchdown pass to Brown and the first of three conversion kicks by Chris Jones with 1:47 left in the first period.
A misplayed snap by Ludlowe had set Warde up on the Falcons’ 25-yard line.
“We shot ourselves in the foot,” Camera said. “It’s 12-0 with the ball and we hand them a touchdown. We never regained momentum.”
Warde’s defense got the ball back and the Mustangs’ took the ball 62 yards on 10 plays. Bryan Azarian got to the edge and scored on a 9-yard run to take the lead at 14-12.
After a double possession (Jack Dailey recovered a fumbled punt) by Ludlowe ran out of steam after a 22-yard loss on a high snap and a 24-yard pass was negated by penalty, Warde got the ball back on its 24.
Twelve players later, Bisack found Brown for a 27-yard touchdown and Jones’ PAT made it 21-12 with 18.4 seconds left in the first half.
Warde took the score to 27-12 on its second series of the third quarter. The Mustangs marched 87 yards in 10 plays, with Bisack connecting with Brown for a 17-yard touchdown.
