ANDOVER — Andover High quarterback Scotty Brown certainly made his 17th birthday a special one.

The birthday boy completed 16 of 23 passes for a season-high 230 yards and a touchdown to lead the Golden Warriors to a come-from-behind 20-13 win over MVC Division 2 power Tewksbury on Friday night.

"Scotty played an absolutely exceptional game on his birthday," said Andover head coach EJ Perry. "It was his best game in a while. He played tremendous."

Brown gave Andover a 7-0 lead in the second quarter when he connected with his favorite target, junior classmate Lincoln Beal on a 15-yard touchdown. But Tewksbury scored twice before halftime to make it 13-7 Indians at the break.

The Golden Warriors were able to answer, though in the fourth quarter. Beal opened the final quarter with a 4-yard touchdown to make it 14-13 Andover, then Beal broke a 70-yard score to ice the win.

Beal finished with 94 rushing yards, putting him over 900 for the season, and eight catches for 137 receiving yards.

Perry said Liam Finn excelled at center, while recent JV call-up Stephen Medeiros excelled on both the offensive and defensive line.

"Our defense shut them out in the second half, so that's big," said Perry. "Now we wait for the tournament seedings. We're excited to start the playoffs."
