The Eagles also lost star linebacker/fullback Greg Kobelski of Andover for the season after he suffered a dislocated shoulder in their win over Central Catholic.

VOTE O’REILLY

Longtime Pinkerton coach Brian O’Reilly is one of eight coaches in the running for “Best coach in New Hampshire” on the USA Today High School sports website (usatodayhss.com).

There is a poll for best coach in each state. O’Reilly is the only local in any state. St. John’s Prep coach and Groveland resident Jim O’Leary is the closest to a local in the Mass. voting.

DOWN ON THE FARM

A pair of local professional hockey players were sent to the AHL just before the start of the NHL season.

Former Boston University star John McCarthy of Andover was demoted to the Worcester Sharks, where he has played the majority of the last two seasons.

Also, former Phillips star Chris Kreider, who exploded onto the scene in the 2011 postseason with New York, was sent to the AHL by the Rangers. A number of New York hockey people blame erratic former Rangers coach John Tortorella for stunting the former star prospect’s progress.

On the other hand, record-setting Merrimack College winger Stephane Da Costa will start the season in the NHL with the Ottawa Senators.
