Pinkerton pummels Merrimack without Manny


The Eagle-Tribune

---- — MERRIMACK — Pinkerton hit the road and invaded Merrimack High, a team that was giving up 41.0 points a game coming in. The Astros were without Manny Latimore (leg) and it hardly mattered as they pummeled the Tomahawks, 63-21.

Sophomore T.J. Urbanik touched the ball nine times on offense and scored TDs on five of the touches.

He finished the night with 8 carries for 214 yards with a 38-yard catch to add to the carnage.

Matt Madden ran eight times for 100 yards and a score for the Astros, who host Londonderry in the playoff opener next weekend.
