    The 2012 season has taken Little Falls into uncharted Pop Warner waters as the Junior Midget A team gears up for Sunday’s state quarterfinal playoff in Camden.



    “The overall winning of the league is something Little Falls has not done in 20-plus years of Pop Warner,” league president Mike Liscio said.

  • The 2012 season has taken Little Falls into uncharted Pop Warner waters as the Junior Midget A team gears up for Sunday’s state quarterfinal playoff in Camden.
    “The overall winning of the league is something Little Falls has not done in 20-plus years of Pop Warner,” league president Mike Liscio said. “There may have been similar things 30 years ago.”
    The group of 26 10-to-13-year-olds carries an 8-1 record into its 2 p.m. game against Chili and went undefeated within its league. Little Falls defeated Rome 26-6 to win its league championship and shut its opponents out late into the game at Canastota.
    Liscio, listed as the team’s coach, is quick to spread the credit for the team’s success.
    “It’s a group effort,” he said. “These kids have coaches with decades of varsity coaching and success (in Little Falls and elsewhere).”
    Having already seen what Rome had to offer, Little Falls’ next opponent is once again a representative of a much larger community. Chili, a Rochester suburb, is home to two public high schools.
    “It’s a pretty big feat because we are a very small school in this kind of thing,” Liscio said.
