Royals dominate to cap turnaround season

MANCHESTER — Thursday’s Thanksgiving Day game between Manchester Essex and Georgetown appeared to be a good matchup on paper. Both teams came in with a winning record on the line. 
But Georgetown rolled past the Hornets 35-0 at Hyland Field. 
With the win, the Royals took home the Eric Dimao/Fran York Trophy and finish off the season at 6-4, their first winning season since 2008 and a huge jump from last year’s 1-10 record. The Hornets finish up at 5-6.
“Hats off to the seniors, we fought hard and wanted to make a statement,” Royals head coach Eric McCarthy said. “We were on the wrong side of the score last year so we wanted to make sure this year’s result was different. All the hard work that these guys have put in during the offseason paid off.”
The Royals led 14-0 at the break. 
In the third quarter, Mark Mansfield scored his second touchdown of the morning with a 9-yard run to give the Royals a 21-0 lead.
The Royals put the game away with two more touchdowns in the fourth quarter. Senior Jon Lavina scored on a 29-yard pass from Tommy Long and Cam Barnard scored from two yards out. 
The Royals’ first score came when the speedy junior Mansfield raced 73 yards to paydirt with 5:08 remaining in the first quarter. 
Midway through the second quarter, junior Anthony D’Amato ran 28 yards for a score. 
Manchester Essex’s best scoring drive of the game came at the very end of the first half but D’Amato picked off a Charlie Otterbein pass in the end zone.
“Georgetown is a good team and coach Eric McCarthy does a great job with them,” Hutton said. “You have to hand it to them, they played a great game.”

Mansfield carries Georgetown to win

Georgetown stayed hot on Friday and reached some milestones in the process.
The Royals rolled over Essex Tech 41-22 in a non-playoff game to improve to 5-4.
Mark Mansfield ripped it up on the ground once again, toting the rock for four scores, Coach Eric McCarthy said he had about 200 yards and surpassed 1,000 yards on the season.
"He had a little more patience," said McCarthy. "We've been working with him on his running style. He let the hole develop and found the creases. He's been doing a good job with that."
Cam Barnard also ran one in for the Royals, while Jimmy Sherman caught a Tommy Long-touchdown pass to cap the scoring against the Hawks.
McCarthy said Sherman also probably got close to 100 yards on the ground, while Long was close to the same mark in the air, surpassing 1,000 yards for the year.
"We used the run to set up the pass," said McCarthy. "The play-actions were there."
Anthony D'Amato had an interception on the first drive of the game. Linebackers Zach Beauvain and Dan Lavelle both had big game against Manchester Essex's double-wing offense.

Royals whip Lowell Catholic to improve to 2-0

GEORGETOWN — Forty points in the opener was good enough for a lopsided win and 40 Friday night was good for another easy win.
Georgetown rolled to a 40-16 win over Lowell Catholic to improve to 2-0.
"The guys are executing," said Georgetown skipper Eric McCarthy. "I think the offensive line is setting the tone and it's really anchored by guys who worked very hard in the off season. They were creating big holes, and Mark Mansfield had a big night running the ball."
Mansfield powered the Georgetown offense with a few touchdown runs while Jimmy Sherman snagged a pair of touchdown catches from junior signal caller Tommy Long, who also threw a TD to John Lavina.
"So far we're pretty stout on both sides of the ball," said McCarthy. "We've got to keep pushing forward."
Lowell Catholic fell to 1-1.
The Royals are at Lynn Tech next Saturday.
