”We had a great defensive plan going and we executed it well,” said Worth whose team moves to 4-2 overall. “It was a great effort, but just one of those football game you don’t win. The kids played real hard for us.”

Quarterback Tim Andersen had 249 passing yards and three TD passes. His receivers looked sharp as well, Jasmany Sanchez (Salem) picked up 88 yards on three catches, while his brother Yordany led team in receiving yards with 105.

The defense was strong throughout, including two picks by Dan Ramirez and Dan Bailey. Jasmany Sanchez covered Shawsheen’s top receiver Devon Pratt and was able to contain him.
