No home field advantage, no problem. The Lynn Tech Tigers shutout Chelsea 26-0 Friday night to begin the season 2-0.

Cesar Reyes (2 touchdowns), Jadiel Ortega (1), and Ethan Prum (1) did the scoring for Tech, which returns to action Saturday, Sept. 23 in Saugus at 1 p.m.


Fenwick 55

Arlington Catholic 0

Leading 48-0 at halftime, it was safe to say everything went smoothly for Bishop Fenwick Friday night. Seniors Anthony Nichols (5 touchdowns) and Luke Connolly (3) had games to remember, combining for eight scores in the first half.

The Crusaders opened the scoring on their first drive of the game on a Nichols rushing burst. Moments later, it was Nichols again, scoring his second within three minutes of his first to give Fenwick an early 14-0 lead. 

Connolly scored the third, fourth, and seventh touchdowns for Fenwick as Arlington Catholic had no answers for the senior duo. 

Arlington Catholic made the mistake of punting directly to Nichols, who ran the punt back for Fenwick’s eighth touchdown (55-0). 

Lynnfield 34

Newburyport 12

The Pioneers (2-0) picked up their second win of the season against Cape Ann League opposition.

The defense gave Lynnfield early momentum with an interception on the third play of the game. 

Lynnfield took full advantage of the turnover, marching its way downfield before quarterback Tyler Adamo scored from 1 yard out on a quarterback keeper for an early 6-0 lead. 

Adamo wasn’t done scoring. On the second play of the second quarter, he showed off his speed and elusiveness, dodging Clipper defenders to score a 31-yard touchdown and lead 13-6.

Not only was Adamo a threat on the ground, but the quarterback showed off his arm, throwing a 53-yard pass to Joey Cucciniello for Lynnfield’s third touchdown (20-6). 

One of the best one-two punches in the CAL, Adamo once again found Cucciniello, this time on a screen, and Cucciniello did the rest of the work, sprinting past defenders for a 40-yard score (27-6). 

The Pioneers’ final points came from the defense, as Spencer D’Augusta intercepted Newburyport’s quarterback and returned it 40 yards to the house.


Boston Latin 0

After losing a close game to St. Mary’s last week, KIPP bounced back with a 38-0 win over Boston Latin. 

The Panthers scored 30 of their 38 points in the second quarter. Morenel Castro (3 carries for 105 yards, and 5 catches for 58 yards) scored on a 90 yard run to open the scoring for the Panthers. 

Jovan Machado (6 rushes for 110 yards and 3 touchdowns) scored two rushing touchdowns in the second quarter. Alan Delgado showed off his speed scoring on a 45-yard run to make it 30-0 going into halftime. 

In the second half, Machado scored his third touchdown on a run from 11-yards out. 

“It was a great game. I’m proud of how they bounced back after a tough defeat to St. Mary’s,” KIPP coach Jim Rabbitt said. “Especially without Chanel Gutierrez who missed the game because he was sick.” 


St. Mary’s 3

Danvers 0

Another clean sheet and win for the undefeated Spartans (3-0). Friday afternoon, they had three different scorers in Eider Solis, Brody McCarran, and Cade Cornell (assist).

Coach Shane McCarran was pleased with his team’s defense not allowing a goal for the third consecutive game. 

“[The] defense held strong to maintain the third consecutive shutout with a strong performance in goal by both Cian LeVasseur and Jacob Guarino,” he said. 

McCarran also praised Marcos Weber Jr, Nick Miller, and Thomas Weber. 


Peabody 2

Everett 0

After dropping a tough one to Danvers Thursday, the Tanners bounced back with a shutout win against Everett. 

Daniella White was between the pipes for the first time and made two saves to earn herself the clean sheet. Ava DeCicco scored both goals for Peabody with Panayiota Nikolouzos providing two assists. 

Peabody coach Jill Tobin praised her durable player, Ashella Correa. 

“[Correa] proved to be a rock yet again, not leaving the field for the duration of the game,” she said. 


Saugus 3

Everett 1

The Sachems’ volleyball team keeps on rolling, winning in three sets away from home (25-16, 25-17, 23-25, 25-20). 

After the game, Saugus coach Mikayla Niles was pleased with her team’s performance. 

“Overall, I think the girls played excellently today,” she said. “Everyone contributed and dug deep to win the fourth set.” 

According to Niles, the key factor in the match was the Sachems’ service. 

“The serves were very good. When our serving was efficient, the other team had a hard time passing,” Niles said. 

Classical 3

Wilmington 0

The Rams remain unbeaten, moving to 4-0 on the year. Classical won in straight sets (25-22, 25-18, 25-12). 

Senior captain and middle blocker Linda Jallow recorded seven aces and five kills. Sophomore setter Emma Chevalier provided 20 assists and two kills, while junior Jaiyda DeBenedetto had eight aces and four kills. 

Classical will look to remain undefeated on Monday when it hosts Everett at 5:15 p.m.
