North Reading's Mucciarone to Tufts

Jumbo recruit

Tufts women’s basketball landed a top prospect in St. Mary’s of Lynn senior Jennie Mucciarone. The 5-7 guard from North Reading averaged 13.4 points a game last winter to give her 868 career points and is ranked sixth in her class academically. She’s also a star in soccer (four-year starter) and softball.

Pigskin perrys

Last weekend was an unforgettable one for Andover’s football-obsessed Perry clan. Andover High, coached by E.J. Perry, beat Lawrence as freshman E.J. IV (3 TD passes, 1 TD catch) starred. Princeton offensive coordinator James saw his QB complete his first 29 passes, an NCAA Division 1 record. And the Tigers beat Cornell, whose quarterback Jeff Mathews, eclipsed James’ Ivy League passing yardage record a few weeks back.

John is the passing game coordinator at Delaware, which shocked No. 9 Towson, 32-31. UD scored 15 points in the final 48 seconds on two TD passes and a 2-point conversion pass by back-up QB Trevor Sasek.

Mass. mismatches

The Mass. North Sectional high school football quarterfinals last weekend were, by and large, eminently forgettable. The average victory margin for the 28 games was a whopping 20.2 points.

Pinpoint passer

Junior Matt Cannone of Windham was 10 of 12 for 102 yards and a TD and rushed 17 times for 72 yards to carry Bates past Bowdoin 17-10. The TD pass was to junior Kevin Davis of North Andover, who caught five passes for 75 yards.

4 plays, 23 points

Reading’s 29-28 quarterfinal playoff win over Cambridge was one of the wildest games you’ll ever come across. In a span of 1:04, the two clubs combined for 23 points on just four plays from scrimmage. Reading took the lead with 1:29 left, Cambridge answered with a 76-yard TD pass. Then Reading won it two plays later on a 60-yard TD pass from All-Scholastic Drew Belcher and a 2-point conversion pass.
