Greater Lawrence falls out of title chase

LYNN — On a night Joe Pizzuto added his name to a very elite group of running backs, Greater Lawrence was knocked out of the Commonwealth Conference Large title hunt.

Despite receiving 274 rushing yards from Pizzuto, the Reggies were unable to overcome several big plays by Lynn, which took a 28-18 victory last night. Pizzuto, who had 47 carriers, became the third area player to rush for 2,000 yards in a season, finishing the game with 2,011, since the Eagle-Tribune began compiling complete records in 1994. The diminutive Pizzuto, however remains far from the school record of 2,647 set by Nate Adames in 2007. Londonderry's Alex Theodhosi ran for 2,041 in 2007.
