Andover kicks off tough week with win

ANDOVER — Although it was nothing close to scintillating, Andover did just enough down the stretch to win its rivalry game against visiting North Andover last night.

The sixth-ranked Golden Warriors first prevented the Scarlet Knights from running away and hiding in the second quarter, then survived a fourth-quarter drought that lasted 5 1/2 minutes before eking out a 51-46 victory. Andover, which defeated North Andover by three in the finals of the Greater Lawrence Christmas Tourney, has won each of the past four outings the past two years against the Knights by a combined 25 points. North Andover has scored fewer than 50 points or fewer in three of those defeats.
