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

Pinkerton Runningback, #22, Eric Guinto uses fast footwork in the first quarter of Saturday's game to elude Manchester Central's defense with a switchback that lands the Astros a first down.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.

He also realized a deficit in speed for his own offense with Eric Guinto (shoulder) in street clothes for the contest.
