"Londonderry in control from the start"

Roger Brown, September 4, 2023

"There was no upset at Londonderry High School on Saturday. As it turned out, there wasn't even the threat of one.

Fourth-seeded Londonderry was in control from start to finish and earned a 46-0 victory over 13th-seeded Windham in the first round of the Division I playoffs."

"'Fantastic Four' leads varsity football to quarter-finals"

Dillon Tufts, Executive Sports Editor (and player #51), November 6, 2023

"The team's quarterback change-up means the other team never knows which of the four Lancers they'll see in the pocket at any given game.

Playoff football is back at Lancer Park, and the team is looking to get a little revenge from last year."

"Windham falls hard to power Londonderry in DI first round"

David Willis, November 5, 2023

After earning two convincing victories, in must-win situations, over the final two weeks of the season to fight back and earn a playoff berth, Saturday simply was not Windham’s day.

The No. 13-seeded Jaguars fell behind by 20 points early in the second quarter, and could not recover, falling to No. 4 Londonderry 46-0 in the Division I first round on Saturday afternoon.

"Londonderry marches past Windham, into D1 football quarterfinals"

Joe Marchilena, November 5, 2023

"After beating the Jaguars by a touchdown the first time around, No. 4 Londonderry got off to a much different start, scoring on its first four possessions on the way to a 46-0 win over No. 13 Windham. The win puts the Lancers in the quarterfinals next weekend, where they will host No. 5 Exeter either next Friday or Saturday."

Coach's Summary

We are all very happy about how the team played on Saturday. We were the more physical team from the start, and it lasted all four quarters. Our kickoff team did a great job putting Windham deep in their own territory and our defense did an incredible job of stopping the option offense that Windham runs. We limited any big plays with great pursuit and good tackling...

Jake Schena making the 2nd & 3rd TD's, this one for 45-yards

Carson Palma making a run

Sam Ogden keeping for 45-yard TD run

Offensively we were efficient, we moved the chains and ended drives in the endzone. There were a few unfortunate injuries in practice last week which left a lot of uncertainty going into the game, but other players stepped up and were able to fill their roles this week. We are hopeful for their return in the post-season.
