DERRY, N.H. - When it comes to state football championships, Pinkerton can be downright territorial, bordering on greedy.

The three-time defending champion Astros, battered, shorthanded and down 12 points with just over six minutes left to play, mustered one final miracle bid, forcing overtime with David Zocco and No. 2 Nashua South. With a spirited stretch run, a game Pinkerton bunch fell one conversion short of a four-peat, tripped up in the extra session of a wild state title epic, 33-32, before about 1,000 at a frigid Memorial Field.

Astros fall to Central

In a decisive moment during the final minutes in 4th quarter of Saturday's game, the Astro momentum is turned around as Manchester's #87, Brett Parenteau, leaves the ground to gain control of a ball intended for Pinkerton.10 Photos

DERRY, N.H. — Meaningless? Yeah, right.

Even before Manchester Central and Pinkerton took to the field yesterday, the Division 1 playoff picture was pretty well set. Unbeaten in the league going in, the Astros hold the edge in the potential three-way tie at the top and would have to falter twice to lose the No. 1 seed. Barring its own meltdown, Nashua South would get a home game as second seed with the Little Green slotted at third, both teams with one loss.

DERRY, N.H. — A hallmark of good coaching is to accurately assess the talent on your team as well as the opposition.

Veteran Pinkerton mentor Brian O’Reilly pegged Nashua South’s David Zocco as his biggest threat to victory, terming the senior "one of the toughest running backs we’ve seen in the last two years." He also realized a deficit in speed for his own offense with Eric Guinto (shoulder) in street clothes for the contest.
