Reggies rematch

The Greater Lawrence football team got its wish yesterday when it was announced that it will face 5-6 Greater New Bedford Thursday in the large school State Vocational Large School Bowl at the Manning Bowl in Lynn at 7 p.m.

The Reggies, who whipped Whittier 42-12 on Thanksgiving, will bring an 8-3 record against the same team that beat them, 19-16, in last year’s Voke Bowl.

“We want a chance to redeem ourselves,” said Reggies quarterback Marcos Ortiz.

Farnham breaks through

Congrats to North Andover’s Bobby Farnham, who recently netted his first AHL point. Currently a member of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins, the AHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins, Farnham had an assist in a recent victory.

The former Eagle-Tribune hockey Player of the Year while at Brooks has played in seven games for the Penguins this season after playing briefly last season for the Worcester Sharks (3 games) and Providence Bruins (3 games) without a point.

Loiseau one step away

Former Merrimack College star Shawn Loiseau may not be on an NFL roster just yet, but he’s very close. The former Shrewsbury High standout is currently a member of the Indianapolis Colts’ practice squad. Earlier this week he tweeted out a picture of his No. 59 Colts jersey. He has been looking for an opportunity since an impressive preseason with the Houston Texans.

Total fake-out

Fans at Andover’s Thanksgiving Day matchup with Central Catholic may have noticed that Golden Warriors injured linebacker Mark Zavrl was in uniform Thursday.

No, Zavrl did not make the world’s fastest recovery from a torn ACL, an injury he suffered just seven weeks ago. He looked game-ready, helmet and all, more for moral purposes.

Album release day

Haverhill’s Jillian Cardarelli, who has become a favorite performing the national anthem before both Celtics and Bruins games, will debut her new album tonight in Haverhill. Cardarelli, a country singer/songwriter, is holding a release party for her new EP “Just Me & You” — which was recorded in country music hotbed Nashville.
