PLAISTOW, N.H. | The Timberlane offense unveiled another weapon in its potent arsenal last night during a 46-24 spanking of Alvirne.

Opposing teams will still need to focus on standout backs Derek Furey (16 carries, 177 yards, 2 TDs) and James Dionne (10 carries, 88 yards, 2 TDs), but they had better not forget about speedy wideout Pat Hamilton.

Hamilton, a 5-foot-6, 140-pound senior, got the prolific Owls started with a 21-yard scoring run on a reverse less than four minutes into the game and scored the Owls' fifth TD of the first half when he caught a Dean Bidgood pass over the middle and then made a nice cut to the left and outran everyone for a 64-yard scoring play.

Later, Hamilton set up the Owls' final TD when he recovered a fumbled punt.

"We've got the skill people and our (offensive) line keeps getting better," said Timberlane coach Mike Pariseau. "Those two backs (Furey and Dionne) are as good as they come and Hamilton is really quick. And don't forget about Drew Smith."

Smith. in addition to kicking five extra points and adding a field goal, caught two passes for 27 yards, one of which was a nifty tightrope grab on the sidelines.

What it all added up to was a 39-12 halftime lead, 314 yards on the ground and 405 yards of total offense, most of it coming in the first half before the reserves took over. The 46 points give Timberlane (2-2) 115 points in its last three games.

"If we're going to win football games, we have to do a better job of stopping the run, but those two backs (Furey and Dionne) are tough," said Alvirne coach Robert Nimblett, whose club dropped to 0-4.

The Owls scored twice in the first six minutes of play to put the game away early. Furey followed Hamilton's TD run with scoring runs of 53 and 30 yards, and Dionne then got into the act with a 40-yard TD jaunt.

Hamilton's 64-yard pass play and Smith's 28-yard field goal with no time left in the first half provided a comfortable 39-12 lead at intermission.

Dionne completed the Owls' scoring early in the third quarter, scoring on a 20-yard run, before the second team took over. Defensively, Timberlane played well early, but the Broncos found success with senior Tim Thayer running the ball. He rushed for 176 yards and scored three touchdowns, one coming on a beautiful 73-yard draw play.

Jordan Regan had two interceptions for Timberlane and was in on several tackles for the Owls and senior linebacker Alex Ranney was all over the field stuffing the run. Nick Scali also had an interception and Maz Zdrada and Brian Nicoll were among those solid up front.
