Odds and ends: The Hornets fell just short of upsetting CAL co-champ North Andover in OT, 42-40. ... North Reading did upset CAL Large entry Triton. … A bench-clearing brawl put an early end to a scrimmage against Lynn Tech. “It was unfortunate, but we could just not risk any more injuries with our numbers,” said coach Jeff Wall. … Wall is already without massive two-way people moving machine Nick Chalmers (leg) for at least a week or two.

Coach Jeff Wall (5th year, 17-24): “We are finding out that if we don’t play well as a team we’re going to have trouble winning. I feel pretty good about this group, but we’ve had a couple of injuries that are a big concern because of our numbers situation.”
