NORWICH – On the day that 30-year Norwich Cyclones coach Stan Foulds retired, his “B Team” said goodbye with an impressive 36-6 win over the visiting New Hartford Bears Sunday at Alumni Field.
The Cyclones opened the game with Frank Garcia racing for a Norwich pee wee-record kickoff return of 85 yards to paydirt. Randy Stokes added the two-point conversion kick making the score 8-0 in the first 30 seconds of the game.
The Bears’ first possession ended with an Ethan Kelly interception at the Bears’ 35 yard line. On the Cyclones’ fourth possession on third-and-eight, Garcia found the endzone again with an 11-yard sweep off the left end. Stokes once again added the two-point conversion kick giving the Cyclones a 16-0 first-quarter lead.
