Bog City Bandits living the small town dream

CARVER – Getting Carver, better-known as the small town next to Plymouth, on the map is a tall task, but that doesn’t stop the Bog City Bandits from trying.

The Bandits, Carver’s youth flag football program, travel beyond the state’s borders to find new heights of competition. 14U coach Patrick Kenneally brought his team and two others to Epping, New Hampshire last weekend to square off against teams from New York, New Jersey, California, Florida, even Mexico and elsewhere. There are approximately 192 teams among all of the age groups and the 14U Bandits lost in the Division 1 finals. 12U also finished as runner-ups. Bog City, though little in size, did not lack heart.

This year's 14U squad.

“To be able to have kids just from Carver on these teams competing at the level they’re competing at, it’s fun to watch,” Kenneally said, “We have a nice little group here. It’s funny – most of them play basketball together, most of them live in the same neighborhood, as well. They’re always playing backyard football and stuff, then we get in these tournaments and they have a good bond.”

“Bog City,” stemming from Carver’s crowds at high school athletic events, as well as the town’s cranberry harvests, was a brand everyone rallied around. Unique, tight-knit, yet kind of vague for those not from the area. Sums up Carver, doesn’t it? And fittingly, that’s just how the Bandits like it.

“The interesting confusion of ‘Where’s Bog City?’ is fun,” Kenneally laughed. “And then when you tell them we’re one small town and these are the best kids of that age group, I think that adds to the fun of it. Being that underdog, the small town of Carver, going up there doing (our) thing.”

Kenneally, a 1994 Carver High graduate, also jokes about potentially putting the number 11,000 on the back of the Bandits’ jerseys, in honor of the town’s population and beating the odds.
