5 Photos

Eleven second-half points, 30 for the game.

That certainly wasn't part of the Andover High game plan. Central Catholic brought its own eraser, 6-foot-9 sophomore Carson Desrosiers, who swatted 10 Andover shots, altered at least a half-dozen more and turned the paint on the Raider defensive end into a no-fly zone.

They're accustomed to playing on Tuesdays and Fridays. They set their clocks to it from December through February.

Lawrence speeds past gutsy Astros

Lawrence 76 Pinkerton 675 Photos

It's early in the season, but Lawrence has shown it's a team that on the right night can beat most anybody and on the wrong night is vulnerable against anybody.

Pinkerton had the Lancers on the ropes in yesterday's Greater Lawrence Christmas Tourney opener. Trailing 37-24 at the half, Lawrence coach Paul Neal knew if his club didn't change something, it was in big trouble.

1 Photo

"The Gambler" and "Lucille" were officially deleted from Jason Jones' IPod.

Jones isn't too high on Kenny Rogers these days. Not after the aging crooner's rescheduled concert forced the Lowell Devils AHL hockey team to move their game from last night to tonight. That meant Jones couldn't watch his brother, Salem High basketball star Josh, play Trinity High last night in the rematch of last year's Class L championship game. "I've been mad all day," stewed Jason, a senior account executive for the Devils. "It's one of the biggest games of the season. That's tough for me."
