Coach's Summary

Friday was an all-around good game from the boys. They played physical and smart all game. We only had one penalty, we dominated the line of scrimmage and only allowed 38 yards of offense from Alvirne on 35 plays.

Mason Paquette TD on pass from Cam Brutus

Offensively, outside of one turnover, we were efficient and moved the ball with only a few mental mistakes. We had over 15 players touch the ball and never punted.

Connor Truesdale making a big catch and then a TD a couple plays later

We have a lot of work to do going forward as we play for a top seed versus a 6-2 team and rival. After this, we play to stay alive and advance, every game will be a challenge, every play is meaningful, and every detail matters. This is about the time of the year that we want to be at our best.

Final Score

40 - 13

Coach's Summary

The Londonderry Lancer freshman football team improved to 8-0 with a win over Alvirne.  The Lancers came out strong on both sides of the ball as they pounded the ball on offense and stuffed the Broncos on defense.  

The team ended their last home game with a score of 40-13.  The team would like to thank all the families and fans who came out to support them all season.  The team would also like to thank Meg Powers for being an amazing trainer.  The team looks to go undefeated at Salem next week.
