LAWRENCE — Ramon Heredia had a message for teammate Alex Andrews.

“I told him that if he touches the ball on the opening kickoff, he better bring it to the house for six points,” said the senior quarterback. “We talked about it all week. He told me that if he was out there, he’d bring the kick back for a touchdown. And he did.”

Northeast Metro, Greater Lawrence

WAKEFIELD — Greater Lawrence was unable to overcome a scoreless first half, losing to the Northeast Knights 26-20.
The Reggies had many opportunities in the second half to take a lead, but were stopped by a strong Northeast defense that gave them trouble all night.
Northeast took a 12-0 lead heading into the locker room at the half. Greater Lawrence bounced back in the second half.
“Hold them and start scoring,” head coach Tony Sarkis said he told his players during the half.
The Reggies’ first drive of the second half ended in a short touchdown pass from quarterback Juan Carlos Gomez to Chris Rocker.
“We ended up getting the ball right away,” said Sarkis. “We ended up scoring on that first run and that helped us out emotionally.”
The defense came in and forced a punt. The Reggies then drove 75 yards, culminated in a 60-yard rush by Angel Rivera, tying the score. The Knights, though, came right back, scoring on a 49-yard rush by Christian O’Leary with 1:48 left in the third to take a 20-12 lead.
Greater Lawrence was poised to tie it up, but a 59-yard drive stalled.
“Coming down and not scoring on the 2-3 yard line really killed us,” said Sarkis. “That hurt us emotionally and that would have been a big swing for us.”
With 3:43 left, the Reggies did score the equalizer on a 10-yard pass from Juan Carlos Gomez to Rocker, for their second TD connection of the evening. The two combined for the conversion pass and the game was deadlocked at 20-20. The hosts, however, had one final answer. Dan Martin scored his third TD of the game, crashing in from four yards out.
The Reggies returned the kick to their own 43 but an interception on the first play from scrimmage ended any hopes of a comeback victory.

Gomez runs Reggies to first victory

WOBURN — Even though they were playing their second game in only six days, the Greater Lawrence Tech football team showed no signs of fatigue as they pounded out their first win of the season 26-12 over Minuteman Tech(0-2).

The game was highlighted by the breakout perfomance of tailback Wadscar Gomez who finished with 193 yards and two touchdowns on 32 carries. Listed at only 160 pounds, the senior proved any doubters wrong and spent much of the day running hard between the tackles,

“I think we found our tailback” said coach Tony Sarkis, who had been using a committee of starting tailbacks through the first three games. “[Gomez] was in the rotation and had a few carries in the other games but today I told him “this is your game, show me what you have” and he played excellent.”

After holding the Mustangs to a three-and-out on the first series of the game, Lawrence immidietly put the ball into Gomez’s hands. He ran eight of the first nine plays and ate up nearly seven minutes of clock before he took a pitch off the right tackle in for a score from nine yards out putting the Reggies up 6-0.

The drive was highlighted by a 28-yard fourth down conversion, a pass from Gomez’s younger brother Juan Carlos(2-4 53 yards TD INT) to receiver Eric Notenboom.

Wadscar Gomez continued to be the focus of the offense running a total of 16 times in the first half including five straight times near the end of the second quarter, setting up a 25-yard touchdown pass to Anthony Orasio to put the Reggie’s up 13-6.
