ANDOVER | Bryan Farris' 44-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter proved to be the difference as Phillips Academy edged Choate, 11-8, in a battle of two undefeated teams.

After a scoreless first half and a Choate safety to open the second half, Farris got the Big Blue on the scoreboard when he found Mike Ciummei in the end zone on a 12-yard pass. Farris completed 20 of 40 for 254 yards and senior Ryan McCarthy was his favorite target on the day. The duo connected on seven passes for 107 yards. Ciummei caught six passes for 76 yards.

The Phillips (3-0) running game was grounded to negative 20 yards.

"Defense was the name of the game today," said Phillips head coach Leon Modeste.

Middle linebacker Dan Evans had 10 tackles and an interception Chad Hollis had eight tackles and a pair of blocks and Corbin Tognoni had five tackles and a sack.

Zach Boyd had five tackles and a fumble recovery and Farris made the defensive play of the game when, after he was picked off, he chased down the interceptor and stopped him five yards shy of the goal line. Choate never scored on that possession.

Phillips travels to Cushing next Saturday (5 p.m.).
