Greene Takes Charge

North Andover High School has announced that Scott Greene has been hired as the school’s new varsity boys hockey coach. Greene has served as an assistant coach and JV head coach for the Scarlet Knights since 2015, and has taught math at North Andover High since 2014.

“Scott is a gifted teacher and role model,” the school said in a press release.

Greene replaces Peter Marfione, who had a 114-89-29 record in 11 seasons coaching the Scarlet Knights.

Captains Corner

With fall sports underway, we at The Eagle-Tribune are excited to once again honor the area’s high school captains as part of our Captains Corner series. Coaches — or parents or the athletes themselves — who would like their captains featured are welcome to submit a photo to dwillis@eagletribune.com. Photos should have all captains featured and ideally in uniform

Stat Correction

Reigning Eagle-Tribune All-Star Salem running back Aidan McDonald actually rushed for 235 yards and three touchdowns on 19 carries in the Blue Devils’ win over Windham a week ago. The yardage was listed incorrectly in last Sunday’s Eagle-Tribune.

The dynamic McDonald has now run for 752 yards and scored 14 touchdowns in five games this fall. He led the area with 763 rushing yards last season, and scored nine touchdowns.

Pelham Cancellation

One of the games of the week in New Hampshire high school football didn’t happen on Friday.

The matchup between unbeaten Pelham (5-0) and Trinity (5-0) was canceled due to COVID-19 issues at Trinity. The game will not be made up, per NHIAA guidelines. The Pioneers are currently on a 10-day pause, but hope to play next week according to the Union Leader.

Pelham beat Trinity 25-0 in a battle of unbeatens last fall.

Tom Babaian‘s Pythons are scheduled to return to action on Friday, hosting Campbell (7 p.m.)
