Samuelman, Knights steamroll Masco

NORTH ANDOVER — Once the MIAA massaged the matchups in the non-playoff side of things for this week in high school football, North Andover football coach John Dubzinski had no buttons to push.
His Knights drew Masconomet Regional, as in 40-year Thanksgiving rival Masco. As in longtime Cape Ann League nemesis Masconomet.
Yeah, North Andover would be up for this one.
"They're still a rival, it's a huge one," said Knights' senior Joe Samuelman, the bell-cow in North Andover's 313-yard rushing attack Friday night, leading his team over Masco, 20-8, before about 600 fans at Walsh Field.
"To get the win over our (former) Thanksgiving rival, even thought it's not on Thanksgiving, still means an awful lot. It was very emotional. It means a lot to walk out of here on Friday night at Walsh Stadium for the last time with a victory."
Samuelman set the tone for the Knights' night quickly. bursting off right tackle for 89 yards and the opening score. The former fourth-stringer would go on to carry 22 times in all for 192 yards and all 20 of the North Andover points (3 TDs, 1 2-point rush) in the win.
With next week's game tentatively slated at Lincoln-Sudbury and Thanksgiving morning's tussle with Andover, Samuelman now has a shot at a 1,000-yard season, having piled up 838 yards on 104 carries so far.
Still, Masco came to play, and when the Chieftains punched in with Declan Judge's two-yard dive and a conversion pass to Jason Slattery, these teams went to the half at 14-8.
Work had to be done in the Knights' locker-room. Masco bull Scott Foden had dominated the first half with 105 yards on 14 carries.
"We changed our reads, pulled the safeties up and got more guys in the box to defeat their run," said Samuelman, an assassin at linebacker all night long.
Foden just couldn't get it going with all that attention and managed just 12 yards on six carries after the break.
"Our defense did a great job," said Dubzinski. "Both teams came to play, and it was just a classic, physical high school game. Honestly, it's what I expected.
"I'm a product of high school football in Massachusetts. Having played in the Fitchburg-Leominster game, I know how big these rivalries are. You kick it up an extra notch. The rivalry kind of takes on a life of its own."
With the win, North Andover moves to 5-4, while Masco falls to 2-7.
