Nashua South whips Salem


SALEM, N.H. — The good news for Salem last night was that senior standout Jerickson Fedrick went over 1,000 yards for the third straight season. Boosted by long third quarter TD runs of 80 and 68 yards, Fedrick rushed for 248 yards on just 19 carries, giving him 1,191 yards to go along with 20 TDs. Unfortunately, there was little else of a positive nature for the Blue Devils (5-3), who fell hard to Nashua South, 49-20. At 3-3 in Division 1 play, they remain tied for the fourth playoff spot with Manchester Central, which fell to Exeter 24-14 last night. Although Fedrickson’s rushing totals were impressive, 193 of his yards came on three runs, and the Panthers controlled him fairly well otherwise. “We knew he (Fedrick) would bust one or two, but generally I thought we made him work for it, and our defense did a pretty good job,” said Nashua South coach Scott Knight. In addition to containing Salem on the ground, South intercepted two of the four passes attempted by the Devils. The first set up Nashua’s second touchdown and the second was returned 42 yards for a TD. The Panthers also returned a fumble 39 yards for a score. Offensively, South (7-1, 5-1) had too many options for a Salem defense which has not been consistent. Shifty back Armand McRae rushed for 134 yards and scored three touchdowns and sophomore QB Trevor Knight (the coach’s son) completed 11 of 16 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns. Impressive kicker Chris Dennis, meanwhile, was 7 for 7 in extra points and booted four kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks. “They have a lot of talent and it’s hard to keep everything covered,” said Salem coach Jack Gati. “At times we played well, but we just have to play better defense.”
