Marauders working hard to get back to the Dome

The numbers may be down for the New York Mills Marauders this year, but they have a lot of returners.

This is Mills third year playing eight man football. Kids like Logan Copperwheat and Nick Fellone, play right into what the Maruaders want to do this season: a lot of speed and quickness. Plus they have a new quarterback under center.

While Maruaders struggled a bit last year with a 2-4 record, the year before this team got a taste of the Dome. With many of those key guys back, they're hoping experience will earn them another trip back to Syracuse.

"We just gotta work as hard as we did that season, that season we worked really hard," said Nick Fellone. "I think this season we can do some pretty good things if we work hard."

"I went to the game and it looked awesome," said sophomore Logan Copperwheat. "I wanna get back and I wanna play there so bad. It's been my goal so we're gonna work for it."

"That's our goal, always to get back to the Dome," said Marauders head coach Anthony Ricco. "What you have to do is you can't lose a league game because the top two teams in the league get to go to the playoffs it's just a one game playoff. So every game is a playoff game and that's what we preach."

New York Mills opens up the season at home against rival South Lewis on Saturday, September 21.
