Cotter, Hamilton-Wenham hold off Indians

To say that Hamilton-Wenham needed this one might be a bit of an understatement.

Looking to snap a three-game losing streak and stay alive in the Cape Ann League Small race, the Generals rode the rugged running of captains Jake Cotter and Nate Masterson to a 14-7 triumph over Amesbury Saturday afternoon at Sawyer Field. "This is huge," Masterson said. "We were on a three-game skid, and it's good to get back."

At the start of the football season, Marion Wilder's career as Amesbury's highly-touted tailback appeared to be over after one season.

The fastest player on the Indians roster didn't have the necessary credits to remain eligible by the Mass. Interscholastic Athletic Association. He completed his freshman year having earned eight credits | four shy on the MIAA requirement.

Amesbury captures first win

AMESBURY | Ask Amesbury football coach Thom Connors and he'll tell you it's the best 12 seconds Jesse Burrell's life.

Nursing a tenuous seven-point lead against a surprising Lynnfield club with 14 seconds left to play, Burrell took a deep snap on his own 10-yard line, headed for his own end zone and proceeded to scamper from one end of the other for 12 seconds before taking the intentional safety with two seconds left to secure Amesbury's first win of the year, 20-15.

Ernie Mello returned after his seven-touchdown effort against Lawrence last week and added two more and 93 yards on the ground. He now had 16 touchdowns on the season.

Again, it appeared to be the sign of two programs moving in different directions. The Clippers completed a 3-8 campaign, while a historically inferior Amesbury program posted its first .500 season in the Thom Connors era.
