Knights win D2 North golf title

About six holes into his round at the Division 2 North Sectional Monday, North Andover High senior Jack McKay nearly buckled.

“I’m coming off a double-bogey, headed to one of the toughest, longest par-3s you’ll play (236-yard 16th at Hillview Country Club in North Reading), and three groups are stacked up,” said McKay. “It’s got to be 35 degrees out, and I have to sit in the cold for 20 minutes with nothing to think about but that double.”

Pentucket beats Masco to stay unbeaten

BOXFORD - Pentucket made the plays they had to and withstood a tough Masconomet running attack to hang on for the 21-13 win to stay unbeaten. The difference in the game was a blocked punt by Noah Malhi that gave the Sachems the ball at the Masco 1-yard line midway through the second quarter. On the very next play Liam Sheehy punched it in to give Pentucket the lead. Stevie Johanson booted the first of his three PAT's for a 7-0 advantage. "That blocked punt by Malhi was a big momentum change," said Pentucket coach Steve Hayden. "As things turned out we only beat them by one touchdown. So we really needed a play like that." Masconomet running back Scott Foden came up big on the ensuing drive, returning the kick 47 yards to the Sachems 41-yard line, and four plays later broke away from tacklers for a 34-yard touchdown run to tie the game. The Sachems' punishing running game led by Kiernan Haley, Sheehy, and Brennan McGuirk gave them a 14-7 lead right after Foden's first touchdown run. Travis Bounsy had a long return, and a face mask penalty against the Chieftains moved the ball to the Masco 30-yard liine. On the next play Haley went all the way for the score, and at the half Pentucket led, 14-7. Pentucket added another touchdown on the opening drive of the third quarter when Haley went in from four yards out. Masconomet answered with no time left in the third quarter when Pentucket's punt was partially blocked, giving the Chieftains possession at the Sachems' 28. Foden got the call four times in a row, capping the drive with a 3-yard run, but the PAT failed. Pentucket is now 5-0 and will host Coyle-Cassidy next Saturday at 1 p.m.

Pentucket rolls over fellow unbeaten North Reading, clinches share of league title

WEST NEWBURY — With the ball hurdling at him on a line, and a pair of defenders closing in fast, Kiernan Haley could have let the ball bounce, or called a fair catch.

Instead, the Pentucket senior fearlessly caught the ball, shook the defenders, and 65 yards later the Sachems were on the way to making a statement.

Pentucket lands early knockout punch

WEST NEWBURY — Attention to all Cape Ann League football teams: do not start slowly against Pentucket. Newburyport was sluggish early Saturday and the Sachems (4-0) made the Clippers pay, scoring on their first four possessions en route to a 27-14 victory. “We had a good start and then we kind of limped into it in the end, but (Newburyport) came out tough at the end of the first half and the beginning of the second half,” Pentucket coach Steve Hayden said. Senior Travis Bounsy took the opening kickoff 78 yards to the end zone and the rout was on. “The kick return was very, very big. (Bounsy’s) a first-year player. We’re glad Travis came out,” said Hayden, after his 201st career wins. Brennan McGuirk then rushed in a touchdown from nine yards out. Sophomore quarterback Finn Graham (2 for 2, 52 yards) placed a perfect throw just out of the reach of the defender and Bounsy beat everyone down the right sideline for the score. Junior Liam Sheehy (14 carries, 82 yards) wrapped up the Sachem scoring with a 12-yard run. Sheehy and Bounsy also intercepted passes. Noah Malhi, who may be the most feared edge rusher in the Cape Ann League, had his second straight game with three sacks and a number of quarterback pressures. James Lussier, Ben Thornton and Joe Raimondi finished with a sack each for the winners. Pentucket and North Reading, who are both 4-0, will meet in West Newbury Saturday at 1 p.m.
