(Dec. 8, 2017) On Monday afternoon, the Berlin Pop Warner junior varsity football team defeated the Pasadena Trojans from California 19-6 solidifying their spot in the Super Bowl against the Southern Marin Broncos of California at Walt Disney World’s Wide World of Sports.

The last game of their season was scheduled to be played on Thursday at 3 p.m.

“[The Pasadena Trojans] were a tough team and they were the first division three team to score on us this year,” Head Coach Jule Airey said. “The score was 0-0 at halftime, we played tough and put points on the board in the second half. A couple of their main guys didn’t like getting hit that hard.”

On Tuesday, when his players were spending the day at Disney’s Magic Kingdom park, Airey was in his hotel room watching his team’s film from Monday in addition to their opponents’ game film.

“At practice [on Wednesday] we went over what to expect,” Airey said. “It is the last game of the year and we are prepared as much as we can.”

After practice ended on Wednesday morning, the 22 junior varsity football players spent time in study hall getting their schoolwork completed before spending the night at Disney’s Animal Kingdom with 93 other football teams from across the country in addition to cheerleaders and dancers in town for their competitions.

“We cheered on the Pop Warner football team on Monday,” Cheerleading Head Coach Jessie Parsons said. “They won big and were the beast of the East.”
