Methuen blanked but reinforcement on way

METHUEN - Yes, it was only one play in a long game of many, but it certainly didn't help Methuen.

On the game's opening kickoff, Zac Bergeron caught it at the 20 and weaved his way through Acton-Boxboro defenders on his way to the end zone, firing up the Methuen faithful that sat frozen to their seats on a brutally cold night (24 degrees, 12 degrees with wind chill) at Nicholson Stadium.

Bryant has huge day to help Coach Ryan earn first win over former club Tewksbury

TEWKSBURY - Tom Ryan's next vacation in Wells, Maine is going to be a whole lot sweeter now.

The Methuen coach often times heads up I-95 for a little R&R with good friend and Tewksbury coach Brian Aylward during their down time.
