Listen to the buzz throughout the River Rivals Region, and one could be led to believe that Amesbury is the team to beat this season.

That is, until one speaks with Amesbury coach Thom Connors. "I'm not quite sure why we'd be considered a favorite," Connors said. "You can't compare us to Triton or Pentucket because they're in the Cape Ann League Large. Newburyport will return a strong nucleus. They have five or six kids that can really play. So I'd say we're right in the same position as everyone else | hoping for the best."

Sachems run ragged over Indians

WEST NEWBURY | The future certainly looks bright for the youthful Amesbury Indians, but in order to get there, they'll need to exorcise past demons.

The Pentucket Sachems, who've beaten the Indians seven consecutive times, would qualify as one of those demons. After the Sachems graduated 18 seniors and looked vulnerable in season-opening losses to Hamilton Wenham and Ipswich, this year appeared to be the one for Amesbury to end the losing streak.
