Unbeaten Pinkerton punishes Timberlane

PLAISTOW — Peter Cyr may be foiling the defensive strategy of Pinkerton’s future foes. Michael Curley may be, too.
Timberlane found this out Friday night in the unbeaten Astros’ 42-7 victory,
The Owls put most of their focus on T.J. Urbanik. The junior standout was impressive enough, rushing for first quarter TDs of 64 and 47 yards and finishing with 144 yards on just nine carries. But, for the second straight week, he had plenty of help, with Cyr leading the way.
Cyr scored on a 48-yard run on a reverse at the end of the second quarter and then closed Pinkerton’s scoring with a 45-yard burst up the middle in the third quarter, finishing with 97 yards on just three carries.
That gives Cyr, who also plays defense, 187 yards and five touchdowns over the last two weeks.
“The line’s really opening some great holes and teams are definitely keying on T.J., which opens things up for me and the other guys,” said Cyr, a 6-foot, 180-pounder.
“I think we’re playing really well. We’ve fixed our mistakes and we’re getting pumped up for the playoffs.”
Pinkerton coach Brian O’Reilly said that no one should be surprised by Cyr’s recent productivity.
“We’re developing depth and Peter has been good all along,” said O’Reilly. “He’s a tough, two-way player — pound for pound, he’s the toughest guy we’ve got.
“We’re running the ball really well. It’s a combination of the line — one of the biggest we’ve had — and the backs.”
The Astros, who rushed for 312 yards in the first half while taking a 35-0 lead, did show both good line play and hard running, resulting in six touchdowns in a limited number of plays.
Pinkerton (7-0) scored on drives of just 2, 3, 2, 4, 4 and 3 plays and no touchdowns covered less than 36 yards. Joining Urbanik and Cyr with long runs was Curley, with a 36-yard jaunt, and sophomore Nico Buccieri, who ran it in from 49 yards out.
“We’re trying to progress every week and get through injury free, which I think we did tonight,” said O’Reilly.
Defensively, Curley was effective from his linebacking slot and Cyr, lineman Noah Robison and defensive back Isaiah Backels made it tough on the Owls (2-5).
Also, junior Kyle Cantalupo was 6 for 6 in extra points.
Timberlane scored its lone touchdown on a 3-yard run by Tyler Furey in the third quarter and showed some flashes of a balanced attack thanks to freshman receiver Brendan Frezza, who caught four passes for 115 yards.
Frezza showed good moves after making the catch and hauled in a beautiful 51-yard bomb down the sidelines from quarterback Jason Hughes that set up Furey’s TD.

Brooks stumbles to Governor's

NORTH ANDOVER — Brooks has suffered more than its share of losses the past four years, but maybe none of them stung quite as much as the one last night.

That in itself might be the biggest proof the Green and White are headed in the right direction.

Looking for its first victory over perennial power Governor's Academy in five years, Brooks held its own, but was unable to build off the pregame hype in a 25-6 loss. Governor's, which has won at least a share of the Independent School League regular-season title each of the past three years, has now won 30 of its past 31 games.
