Weekend football roundup: Hannon, Fenwick pull away from AC in second half

Bishop Fenwick senior quarterback Fran Hannon continued his hot play Saturday night, throwing for two scores and running for another as the Crusaders came back to defeat Arlington Catholic, 24-13.

Despite a pair of Hannon-to-Eric Razney touchdown passes in the first half (10 and 19 yards, respectively), Fenwick was looking at a 13-12 halftime deficit.

The Crusaders (7-3) responded with single touchdowns in the third and fourth quarters to pull away for the victory.

Sophomore running back Rufus Rushins (15 carries, 85 yards) scored on a 6-yard run before Hannon put the game away with a 60-yard TD run. Hannon finished with 116 yards on 13 carries, and also completed 15 of 22 passes for 206 yards.

Nick Bona had four catches for 78 yards, and also stood out on defense with an interception, a fumble recovery and 17 tackles.

Fenwick coach Dave Woods also lauded the play of Charlie Maistrellis, who caught five passes for 71 yards and also recovered a fumble on defense.

Hamilton-Wenham 34, Georgetown 14: Trevor Lyons rushed for 158 yards and three touchdowns in the first quarter as the Generals (5-4) rolled to victory on the road. Lyons finished the day with 177 rushing yards.

Teammates Steve Turpin (a 5-yard touchdown run) and teammate Cam Macri (84 yards on 13 carries, including a 22-yard TD) also had scoring runs for the Generals.

Gloucester 43, Swampscott 20: The Big Blue (4-6) fell behind 28-0 and never recovered. Quarterback Brian Santry threw for 246 yards and three touchdowns, including two to Corey Carmody that cut it to 28-14 in the third quarter. The Fishermen (3-7) forced too many turnovers, including one returned for a TD, however.

“We just haven’t been playing good football lately,” Swampscott head coach Steve Dembowski said. “We didn’t come out ready to play and Gloucester took advantage of every mistake we made. We showed some pride fighting our way back into the game in the second half.”

Alex Powell also caught a TD and had five grabs for 64 yards. Aaron Cronin added five grabs for 61 yards.
