2010: After falling behind by two touchdowns following one quarter of play, Salem methodically came back and found the end zone in each of the next three quarters to claim a 21-13 road win at Marblehead. Kyle Hardy got the scoring started for the Witches by taking in a 7-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Brad Skeffington in the second quarter, followed by an Antonio Reyes kick. Chris Bozarjian's 4-yard scoring jaunt in the third quarter tied the game, and a 6-yard Bozarjian scamper in the fourth quarter, followed by a Skeffington 2-point conversion rush, gave Salem the victory. Skeffington and Bozarjian both rushed for 59 yards for the winners, while Skeffington hit four different receivers for 75 yards through the air.
