Knights shoot down Lancers

(Continued)

Dantae Neal had 14 points and Fabian added 10 for the Lancers. The big man, Franziel Reyes, was off to a quick start, scoring Lawrence’s first six points, but a couple ticky-tack touch fouls sent him to the bench early and basically took him out of the game.

At 10-3, Division 2 North contenders have to be looking seriously at the Knights right now. But just how good can this team that lost four huge starters from last year, be . What are they?

“I think we can beat anyone in the state,” said Daley. “We can play with anyone, but we also can lose to any team out there, too.”

North Andover 69, Lawrence 52

RAIDERS SURVIVE, STRENGTHEN HOLD ON FIRST Central Catholic played without big man Nick Cambio (flu) and nearly paid the price, escaping the upset by Methuen with a 62-59 win. Down 40-36 into the fourth, the Rangers fought hard and actually had a shot to tie with 4.4 seconds. But the free throw on a four-point play attempt to tie it went awry and Tyler Nelson made both foul shots with 1.1 seconds to play, icing it for the Raiders. Nelson finished with 28 for the Raiders, while Tim Galloway-Burke had 27 points in the Methuen middle.
