Lancers' snap skid with decisive win

NASHUA — Jonathan Young and the Londonderry football team may have saved their best for last yesterday.

The Lancers (3-7) snapped a six-game losing streak in a big way with an impressive season-ending 35-16 victory over Nashua North.

Young led the way with 129 yards rushing and three touchdowns on runs of 3, 28 and 4 yards. Michael Ryan chipped in with 95 yards rushing on just five carries highlighted by a 52-yard jaunt.

Quarterback Dylan Cole, meanwhile, was an efficient 7 of 10 through the air for 72 yards for the Lancers and Joel Rodriguez had a 73-yard kickoff return.

Nashua North opened the scoring midway through the first quarter but the Lancers responded with 14 straight points and never trailed again.

Troy Ward led the defense with 14 tackles while Aaron Gaudet was in on 10 stops.
