Shawsheen Tech grinds out season-opening victory on the road.
Andrew Dascoli rushed for 172 yards to lead the Shawsheen Tech football team to a season-opening 12-8 win over Arlington Catholic at Arlington's Pierce Field. Dascoli, a junior, changed field position in the first half and wore down the clock in the second with a number of tough runs up the middle. Dascoli, with 28 carries, was the lion's share of the Rams' offense, but fullback Devin Connearney took all the glory, scoring each of the team's two touchdowns.

Five different Indians scored against the Redmen, who couldn't seem to stop the offensive attack. Joe Hill scored two of Billerica's six goals in the loss. While some positives were able to be taken out of the defeat, it appeared that Tewksbury had extreme difficulty advancing the ball past midfield. "Yes, we have lots of work to do and our guys need to learn to mark their man better, but our forwards and midfields are decent, they just need to learn to take advantage of their skills. We'll get better," said head coach Kevin Gillotte. Goaltender Joe …
