Fairweather continues record-setting season in win

 

LONDONDERRY - Eric Fairweather came close, real close, to reaching two milestones in Londonderry's 22-13 victory over Nashua South. Fairweather, the Lancers QB, reached 1,031 yards on the ground for the season with his 140 rushing yards Friday. But he just missed reaching the 1,000-yard passing plateau. With his 134 yards passing against Nashua South, Fairweather now has 981 yards passing for the season. He has a chance to reach that statistical milestone in a huge game against Salem next Friday at Salem High. Fairweather was his usual dominant self Friday. He rushed for TDs of 63 and 5 yards and also connected with receiver Nick Donnelly for a 17-yard TD score. But the QB did throw three interceptions as Nashua South made a comeback after trailing 22-0 in the fourth quarter. Michael Ryan added six rushes for 69 and Jimmy Nee ran three times for 24 yards. David Wiedenfeld caught two passes for 48 yards. Salem, meanwhile, beat Nashua North 12-7 on Friday. Salem and Londonderry both enter next Friday's Halloween game with 7-1 records. The winner of that game goes to the playoffs and the other team's season will end.

Salem wins sets up Londonderry showdown

NASHUA — One week before a regular-season showdown against Londonderry with a playoff spot up for grabs, it would have been easy for Salem to overlook a two-win Nashua North squad.

Especially when a junior running back will be taking his first snaps as a varsity signal caller.

While last night's victory might not have been the Blue Devils' prettiest performance of a stellar season, Salem's 12-7 win got the job done.

Nick Shumski proved more than capable of getting the job done, one night after being told he'd be subbing under center for starter John Cerretani, who was not in uniform because of a coach's decision.

Shumski rebounded from an interception on his first throw, completing four of his remaining five passes. Each completion went to Kenny Calabrese, none bigger than his leaping 28-yard reception at the Titan 1, setting up Johnny Bartose's clinching touchdown with 8:07 remaining in the game.

"I found out (Thursday) before practice," said Shumski, who's only previous QB experience this year was the first half of the first junior varsity game. "One of my teammates told me. I thought he was messing with me at first, but it turned out to be the real deal.

"I just thought it was a big opportunity right now. I had to play my best and help my team out. Everyone is stressing out about Londonderry, but we knew we had to get this one first"

The inexperienced Shumski was helped significantly by Charles Sibanda, who led a balanced rushing attack with 118 yards and the game's initial touchdown midway through the third quarter.

"Nick's a great football player," Salem coach Rob Pike said. "We had full confidence in him. He did fine. We just had a lot of other issues we have to take care of."

Those issues would be penalties that stymied may possessions, including one that lasted 9 minutes and 18 plays and reached the North 1. The Blue Devils were flagged 13 times for 126 yards. Six of the calls were of the personal foul-unsportsmanlike varieties. The two teams combined for 238 yards on 24 penalties.

Defense played a huge role, holding the Titans to 102 rushing yards and 164 total. The biggest play was Bryce Haynes' interception that halted Nashua North's final possession.

"Defense is playing great," Pike said. "There's a ton of guys I could highlight."
