WORCESTER — In his first career start, quarterback Julio Dahl found Jake Jordan for two of Phillips Academy’s four first-quarter touchdowns as the Big Blue rolled over Worcester Academy 32-7 on Saturday.

“Seeing positive results after two weeks of hard work is really the best feeling,” said Jordan, a senior tri-captain, whose team improved to 1-3. “Knowing that we managed to dial in despite the losses and do our jobs is fantastic.”

Dahl, a sophomore, and Jordan quickly gave Phillips the lead with a 21-yard touchdown connection early in the first.

Former Georgetown High star Hunter Lane added to the advantage when he scooped up a blocked punt and returned it 15 yards for a score. One possession later, running back Ben Carbeau made it 19-0.

Jordan and Dahl (247 passing yards) then closed out the huge quarter in style, connecting for a 63-yard TD. Running back Troy Pollock (team-high 49 rushing yards) finished the scoring in the fourth with a 1-yard TD run.

Phillips next hosts Suffield Academy on Saturday (3 p.m.)

“The feeling of coming together and winning is unmatched,” said lineman Nick Thomas. “We were seen as a non-threat, but we’re here to prove everyone wrong.”

BROOKS LOSES LATE LEAD

WESTON — Brooks led 3-0 heading into the fourth quarter, but could not hold on and fell to Rivers 6-3 on Saturday.

Kicker Brian Barker-Morrill gave the Green and White the lead when he booted a 26-yard field goal in the first quarter.

QB Michael Wolfendale led Brooks with 98 passing yards. He connected with Darryl Yepdo three times for 54 yards.

Brooks (3-1) will next travel to Middlesex on Saturday (3 p.m.)

SANBORN FALLS SHORT

KINGSTON, N.H. — Tavante Thornton again played well with 58 rushing yards, but Sanborn lost to Hollis-Brookline 50-0 on Saturday.

Zach Cardoso and Josh Sarrette each added 50 rushing yards for the Indians.

Sanborn (0-6) will next travel to Milford (5-1) on Friday (7 p.m.)
