---- — DERRY — The third-grade Derry Demons football team had an amazing season this year, with a record of 6-2.
All 34 players learned what it takes to be part of such a large team. Hard work, commitment, sportsmanship and respect are values these athletes will carry with them through life.
The fourth-grade Derry Demons earned fourth place in the NHYFSC league.
With help from their coaches, the fourth-grade team went 6-2 this season. These 29 players came together this season and pushed hard for each of their wins. Head coach Lance Little and assistant coaches are very proud of their team.
The sixth-grade Derry Demons team started their journey back on July 29, with 33 boys from Derry, Chester, Auburn and Hampstead. Many were first-year football players.
Since then, the hard working boys have given it their all and earned an opportunity to compete in the NHYFSC playoffs. Led by solid defensive play which yielded two touchdowns in eight regular season games, the sixth-grade Demons finished out the regular season with a 7-1 record.
The fifth-grade Demons was heading to the state playoffs for AYF regional playoffs Sunday, after drawing a first-round bye. Under the direction of the coaching staff, the team played its last season game at home, beating Manchester East, 29-0, to complete their second consecutive undefeated season.
Derry Demons is a nonprofit organization that prides itself on inspiring area youth to learn football and cheer, serving children from Derry, Chester, Auburn and Hampstead.
