Final Score

Zhao a force in freestyle

Behind freestyle domination from Eric Zhao, Andover rolled to a convincing victory in the MVC league meet yesterday.

The Golden Warriors piled up 378 points, outdistancing runner-up Chelmsford (305) and third-place Central Catholic (254).

Zhao was victorious in the 100 and 200 freestyle competitions and swam the anchor legs in the winning 200 and 400 freestyle relays.

The Raiders were led by double winner David Kitchen (200 individual medley and 100 breaststroke) along with freshman Will Pannos, who won the 100 butterfly and placed third in the 200 freestyle.

Fourth-place Haverhill was driven by freshman Matt Amedeo (second in the 100 butterfly and fourth in the 500 freestyle) and Nicholas Roy (third in 100 fly, fifth in 200 IM).

In its first league meet, North Andover came in sixth led by placers Aidan Walsh and Liam Walsh.

Sachems stretched into OT

Another Pentucket-Masconomet girls basketball games, another war.

The Sachems countered a tough shooting night with an effective effort at the free throw line, converting on 22 of 34 to edge Masco in OT, 44-43. Coley Viselli hit two foul shots with 12 seconds left to send the game to overtime and Tess Nogueira (20 points) drilled a pair from the charity stripe in the extra session to lock up the victory.

Cambio’s big day

Nick Cambio notched a season-high 28 points to lead Central Catholic past Methuen 87-73. That crushed his previous best game of the year, 19 points in a win over Dracut.

Witten leads rally

Entering the final quarter with just a single basket, Jessica Witten’s eight points led a 17-2 Andover run to finish the game as the Golden Warriors rallied past Lowell 47-37.

Free throws make difference

While Chelsea was missing its late-game free throws, Escarlin Reynoso and Greater Lawrence were making theirs, allowing the Reggies to hold on for a 47-45 triumph. Reynoso, a junior point guard, finished with 12 points and five rebounds while Jasmine Severino was a beast on the boards with eight rebounds, seven on the offensive end.
