The Greenfield Men’s Touch Football League began its season Sunday at Green River Field, with defending champion Hubie’s Tavern picking up where it left off a season ago. The club cruised to a 36-0 victory over the Northampton Raiders.

Cody Underwood stepped in for Pat Viencek at quarterback, tossing a touchdown to Alex Bourassa and Jeremy Benz. Underwood ran in a pair of scores as well.

Bourassa, Underwood and Curtis Weaver each added extra points.

Defensively, Austin Watroba took an interception 24 yards to the house, and Andy Drew forced a safety. Captain Steven Torres had a strong game.

• Elsewhere, Parker Hickey threw touchdown passes to Andy Wroblewski, Tom Field and Max Pirozhkov while also running in a touchdown in Sirum Autobody’s 27-0 win over Wormtown Trading.

Pirozhkov, Chucky St. Hillaire and Hickey added extra points.

Wormtown quarterback Ricky Craver was under pressure most of the day, but connected with Tyler Charboneau multiple times to move the ball, but was unable to put it in the end zone.

• In other action, Jordan Markham scored two touchdowns to lead Taylor’s Tavern past Travel Kuz, 20-6.

Taylors quarterback Nick Aldrich found Markham in the end zone for its first score of the game, and in the second half, Markham picked off Kuz quarterback Malcolm Smith and returned it for a score.

Aldrich later found Jake Field in the corner of the end zone to seal the victory, with Markham added a two-point conversion after.

Smith had the lone score of Kuz, an 11-yard scamper, with Justin Fox and Abe Klein playing well in the defeat.
