Strong second half gets Hornets past Royals

GEORGETOWN – Manchester Essex’s defense looked mighty suspect on the first play from scrimmage but was impenetrable after that.

Ipswich too much for Royals

GEORGETOWN — Unable to cash in on a pair of long drives, Georgetown fell to Ipswich 26-6. Junior running back Tim Dillon rushed for 54 yards, while senior quarterback Tyler Wade passed for 84 yards to lead the Royals, who dropped to 1-6.
Ipswich Junior Peter Moutevelis led all rushers with 113 yards and two touchdowns.
Ipswich forced an early fumble on a blitz and Moutevelis pounced on the loose ball and took it 47 yards to the end zone.
Wade crashed in from the 1 to tie it up late in the first quarter.
The Royals were in sight of the go-ahead score but they had a drive stall at the 11 before turning it over on downs. Ipswich then embarked on a 10-minute drive for the go-ahead score. The drive included two fake punts.
Early in the third the hosts again had a long drive stall. This time at the 4.
“Nineteen times this year we’ve had the ball in our opponents 30 yard line or less and we’ve come away with no points,” said coach Paul Sobolewski, “That’s the sign of a young team, even if we get points on half of those possessions, we probably have a couple of more wins.”

North Reading runs past Georgetown

NORTH READING — The Hornets have attempted only 10 passes in their first six games. 
But North Reading surely doesn't need to pass. Not when it has talented running backs Carl Lipani and C.J. McCarthy.  
Exhibit A: Last night Lipani and McCarthy ran wild, combining for 281 yards on 18 carries. 
The fearsome backfield duo helped North Reading post a 35-17 victory over a young and struggling Georgetown team.  
Lipani ran for touchdowns of 1, 50 and 57 yards. McCarthy sprinted for touchdowns of 44 and 50 yards. 
"I don't know how many passes we've thrown," Lipani said. "We just run the ball. It's awesome. It's smash-mouth football. We go right after the other team."  
Lipani and McCarthy pounded through tacklers around the line of scrimmage and then also eluded Georgetown defenders in the open field with some quick and smart moves. 
"Carl's a special athlete," North Reading coach Jeff Wall said. "(As a coach), you only get a Carl Lipani every once in a while in your career. He's a hard runner. He's a great kid. He has the best work ethic on the team. Even in practice. He runs like that in practice. So he doesn't even take a play off there.  
"And C.J. is kind of like an unsung guy because he blocks for Carl all the time," Wall added. "So Carl wants the ball all the time. C.J. wants the ball all the time. So it's a great 1-2 punch for us." 
Is there any competitiveness between Lipani and McCarthy?
"We're brothers," McCarthy said. 
"(Lipani) is hands down the best running back in the league," McCarthy added. "With this line and this offense, he's unstoppable." 
North Reading possessed the football four different times in the first half and scored a touchdown on each drive.
The Hornets also scored on their first drive of the third quarter and went the entire contest without punting. 
Georgetown trailed 35-3 entering the fourth quarter but its younger players drove in for two touchdowns in the final quarter.
"We're trying to rebuild a program here," Royals coach Paul Sobolewski said. "Yeah, do we want to win football games? Of course we do. But with that being said, we're very young and we just want to see the fundamentals. You can see that our kids don't quit. They play hard. They're just physically not strong enough, big enough or fast enough to compete at the varsity level right now. It's going to take a little bit of time." 
Georgetown sophomore wide receiver Colby Ingraham played a nice game, catching six balls for 40 yards.
"The future's bright," Sobolewski added. "And you never want to give our three seniors the wrong message that we're playing it for the future because we're not. We want to win every game we play. But we have realistic goals. And right now it's to teach the fundamentals of football: blocking and tackling. Right now we don't tackle very well."

Saugus, Georgetown

GEORGETOWN — Anthony Guthro ran for 135 yards with a touchdown to help Saugus sink Georgetown 28-6. Saugus improved to 1-4 while the Royals dropped to 1-3. A Georgetown turnover on the first possession of the game led to Saugus’ first score, a 2-yard quarterback sneak by C.J. Randolph. The Royals’ second possession ended in an interception. Shortly after, Nick Benoit cashed in on a 7-yard run. The Royals drove to the Saugus 7 late in the half but the drive stalled. Saugus put the game out of reach in the second half on a Guthro touchdown run and a 78-yard touchdown catch by Ryan Henehan. Georgetown scored its lone points on a 10-yard Tyler Wade pass to Pat Bjork late in the third quarter. “You can’t get into the red zone four times and only come away with six points,” Royals coach Paul Sobolewski said. “That’s what it came down to. They were a little bit hungrier than we were. Football comes down to blocking and tackling. We didn’t do a good job of either one and that’s on me, I’ve got to do a better job. “I said before the season started that I’m not worried about wins and losses, I’m worried about restoring a program. Which is what I was asked to do ... try to bring some pride back. And right now, we’re young and you’re seeing that. You’re seeing that aspect of it.”
