---- — Ross Murphy ran for four touchdowns for the second straight week as North Shore Tech hit the road and won the Commonwealth Small title outright with an emphatic 48-6 win over Chelsea.
The Bulldogs (8-2) ran the table in the CAC Small, finishing 3-0, and had already clinched the league’s playoff berth.
“It was a good win,” said Bulldogs head coach Paul Worth. “The defense played solid again and we moved the ball around the field, Tim Andersen threw ti well and we should some real speed with the Sanchez brothers (Jazmanny and Yordanny).”
The Bulldogs scored three TDs in the second quarter to break the game open, with Jazmanny Sanchez (11 yard run) and Yordanny Sanchez (78 yard run) finding the end zone. Murphy scored on runs of seven, 18, eight and 11 yards and combined with three conversion rushes totaled 30 points on the evening.
The Tech will play Northeast next Saturday in their final game before the playoffs.
“That’s going to be a tough one,” said Worth. “They’ve owned us the last three years, but we’re playing some good football.”
North Reading 15, Ipswich 13: In his third game back, Peter Moutevelis scored two touchdowns for the Tigers (2-8). Moutevelis ran for 110 yards in the close contest.
