Sports in a Minute: McCarthy's AHL option

AHL option

With the NHL locking out its players, two local products will be skating in the AHL.

Ex-Phillips great Chris Kreider, who was the talk of the NHL for his dazzling play as a late-season call-up in last spring’s playoffs, is with the Connecticut Whale. Andover’s John McCarthy, who saw action in 10 games with San Jose last winter, is with the Worcester Sharks.

Goobers and Raisinets

Add to the All-Name Team Burlington High quarterback Jimmy Goober.

Prep-ing in Georgetown

Georgetown seems to be the town of choice for St. John’s Prep legends. Ex-Prep and NFL QB Brian St. Pierre lives there as does Matt Antonelli, who played Triple A ball this year with the Orioles and Yankees. The Yanks eventually released him so he’s looking for a new team for 2013. He has 11 hits in 21 big league games, all coming with San Diego in 2008.

Not half bad

Brittany Moriarty, 26, of Andover (1:26.48) and Kelly LeCours, 47, of Bradford (1:27:00) placed second and third, respectively, at the Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon.

King of the pitch

Sports Illustrated football writer Peter King was a captain in high school. But not football. His resume lists soccer and baseball.

Receiving record

Dallas Cowboys star Miles Austin racked up a Northeast Conference record 2,867 receiving yards at Monmouth.

Who had the old record? Pinkerton grad Jason Bain of Wagner (2,294 from 1997-00).

perfect 300 game

Ken LaChapelle may not be a bowler, but he had a perfect 300 game. The Northbridge High football coach become the third coach in Bay State history with 300 wins. He trails only Brockton’s former great coach Armond Colombo (316 wins) and Bill Broderick (303-68-42), who coached several places including a remarkable 121-15-3 record from 1911-23 at Haverhill High.

What made the night perfect was his grandsons Daiton LaChapelle and Koby Schofer both scored for the Rams.
