A couple of hidden gems culled from two of the bigger victories on the weekend.

First, there was the Saturday afternoon effort by Georgetown sophomore Tyran Harrigan in the win over Lynnfield. Listed on the Royals' depth chart as the backup safety and quarterback, Harrigan came through big, the way teams with 36-man rosters often need.

In the blazing heat, injuries forced the youngster to step in and take over the starting fullback spot on offense and a starting corner position on defense. "He's a dynamic athlete, so I knew he could handle it," said coach Matt Bouchard.

Harrigan finished as the Royals' leading tackler on the day with 11.

"He just had a great day overall," said Bouchard. "He was amazing on special teams. On every kickoff his nose was on the football."

Same conference, similar circumstances where the Reggies of Greater Lawrence ventured into the Cape Ann League waters and shut out Triton.

"Our defense was amazing," said coach Tony Sarkis, who lauded his unsung linebacking crew. "They got into the red zone three times and we shut them down." Leading tackler John Cote had the game of his life at middle linebacker, and got plenty of help on the outside from Jorge Cruz and Brian Rivera, in his first start at the position. "For our program, beating a good Cape Ann team like that is incredible. And those three guys really had plenty to do with it."
