BIG GAME ALERT

Timberlane (3-0) plays at Pinkerton field hockey (2-1) at 4 p.m. today.

Ariana Kinsvater has scored five goals in her first three games for Timberlane after scoring three goals all of last year.

The Astros are led by Kaylie DeCosmo who has eight goals in three games. She scored four goals in the opener against Nashua South and then four in her last game against Keene.

PATS TV RATING

The Patriots and Jets game Thursday drew a combined average household rating of 34.2 for NFL Network’s national coverage and local coverage from Channel 5 in Boston and Channel 9 in New Hampshire.

It was an 11 percent increase in average household rating from the Patriots season opener against the Bills on Sept. 9.

CORRECTION

It was incorrectly noted in the boys soccer preview that new Methuen girls coach Tim Gordon coached the Rangers boys freshmen team last year. He actually coached the Methuen freshmen girls team last fall.

Methuen entered yesterday’s game with a 2-2 record. The Rangers scored eight goals by eight different players in their first four games. That’s some pretty good offensive depth.

TIDBITS ON LOUI

Here are five interesting tidbits on new Bruins left wing Loui Eriksson, according to NHL.com:

1. Eriksson was named the most underrated player in 2011 and 2012 in a Sports Illustrated poll. 2. His favorite movie is Braveheart; 3. His favorite meal is steak and potatoes; 4. His favorite vacation spot is Italy; 5. His favorite non-hockey team is Liverpool FC.

SOX FOR A BUCK

The Red Sox have a promotion going Wednesday where if you walk up to Gate E with a real, fake or painted beard, you’ll gain admittance into the game for only $1. Not a bad deal.

The Red Sox play the Baltimore Orioles at 7:10 p.m. Wednesday with Red Sox RHP Jake Peavy (11-5, 4.03) going against LHP Wei-Yin Chen (7-7, 3.99).
