DANVERS — A year ago Andover, knocked St. John’s Prep out of the football playoffs in a game that wasn’t decided until the Golden Warriors scored with 1:23 to play. 
The Eagles didn’t forget the Division 1 North semifinal loss, and Friday night at Glatz Field they buried the Golden Warriors, 55-6, behind a four-touchdown performance by Aise Pream, who ran for three and caught a pass from Will Potdevin for the other.
Senior Nick Vecchi added three more scores in the romp in the non-playoff game.
“Last year’s game was mentioned,” said Prep coach Brian St. Pierre, whose team improved to 5-5. “This has been a season where we’ve had injuries galore, and took our frustrations out on Andover. I’m happy for the kids. Despite the ups and downs they’ve continued to work very hard.”
It was all Eagles from start to finish on a raw, windy night. The offense clicked for seven touchdowns on the first seven possessions. 
It all started with Pream, who broke free for an 8-yard TD run after gaining 22 up the left sideline to put his team on the board with five minutes left in the opening quarter. He hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass from Potdevin (making his second career start) on the next drive after two circus catches by Max Freedman set it up.
Trent Tully, an Andover resident, did the heavy lifting on the next drive, capped by a touchdown run, and then it was Pream again for romps of 28 and 71-yards for a 34-6 lead at intermission.
Andover’s lone score came in the final minute of the half on a 32-yard pass from Cedric Gillette to Brendan Moody.
Gillette, of course, is usually one of the state’s top receivers with 53 catches for 878 yards and 8 TDs this fall.
“Cedric was our leading receiver, but we lost our starting quarterback (Nick Dellatto to injury) last week,” said Andover coach E.J. Perry. “It’s a tough transition for him to make, especially in four days. He did a good job in the first half, but had trouble in the last two quarters. St. John’s had some good blocking schemes. We have to get more physical on defense.”
It was the Vecchi show in the second half with touchdown runs of 45, 19, and 37 yards.
