Esposito's career day not enough for Georgetown

PEABODY — Despite a career best game for Georgetown quarterback Chris Esposito, the Royals fell to a run-heavy Bishop Fenwick team 33-15. 

Although a Georgetown quarterback last named Esposito putting up impressive numbers is not new to the Georgetown faithful, it was the first name that was different against Fenwick. After playing fullback for two seasons behind his older brother Joe, Chris Esposito made the conversion to qb look easy as he threw for 99 yards and a touchdown pass on 10-14 passing while the fullback inside him came alive as well, bulling over defenders for 128 yards rushing most of them comming between the tackles.

Croce field goal sinks Georgetown

AMESBURY — Amesbury stacked up Georgetown quarterback Chris Esposito inside the Amesbury 1-yard-line with 3:10 remaining in the fourth quarter, effectively sealing a 3-0 victory at Landry Stadium. “You can’t get any better than winning on a goal-line stand,” Amesbury coach Thom Connors said. “They pushed us right to the goal-line, but we did what we needed to do.” Amesbury (1-3) dominated possession in the first half, running 32 offensive plays to Georgetown’s 10. Amesbury opened the game with a nine-play, 40-yard drive, which ended when Nick Croce missed a 46-yard field goal attempt. Three plays later, the Royals (0-4) fumbled on their own 39.
