Football roundup: Nauset holds off Nantucket, 14-12

NANTUCKET – Mac LaBarge’s 3-yard touchdown run capped a 13-play, 87-yard drive in the second half, giving the Nauset football team enough to defeat Nantucket, 14-12, in non-playoff action.

Friday’s game was the first ever between the two programs.

Nantucket (6-4) took a 12-7 lead when Victor Gamberoni ripped off a 75-yard TD run on the first play of the second half, but Nauset answered with a scoring drive that took up more than six minutes.

 

Robby Wright hit both point-after-touchdown kicks, which made the difference for Nauset (5-5). Nantucket was playing without usual kicker Cam Bartlett, and the Whalers failed on both two-point conversions.

Torane Burton had a 25-yard scoring run to make it 6-0 in the first quarter, but Nauset answered in the second when Bobby Joy hit Riley Bent for a 21-yard TD pass.

Bourne 48, Cape Tech 20: Jaimon Scott ran for 145 yards and four touchdowns, James Cahoon threw for 200 yards and two scores and the Canalmen earned a non-playoff victory over the Crusaders in Bourne.

Scott opened the scoring for Bourne (5-5) with a 50-yard, first quarter touchdown, followed by Jack Neil's first of four successful point-after-touchdown kicks.

After Cape Tech (3-7) responded with a 70-yard touchdown run, Spencer Rose intercepted the Crusaders’ two-point conversion pass and ran it back for two points. Rose finished with 153 yards receiving.

Josh Gonzalez, who finished with 61 yards rushing, upped the Canalmen’s lead to 15-6 with a 2-yard touchdown run to open the second quarter. Scott then ran in a 3-yard score, and Cahoon hit Rose for a 30-yard touchdown pass to make it 28-6 entering halftime.

Nick Santucci was strong at outside linebacker for Bourne.

St. John Paul II 18, Upper Cape 0: Mike Satkevich ran 68 yards for a touchdown in the first half, giving the Lions enough to snap a four-game losing skid by beating the Rams in non-playoff action at Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Buzzards Bay.

Satkevich’s run was the only score of the first half, but defense and special teams did the rest.

St. John Paul II (6-4) doubled its lead when Will Good recovered a botched punt and ran 20 yards for a score. Brian Hyde then returned an interception 40 yards for a touchdown to make it 18-0 through three quarters. Will Coty added a key fumble recovery in the second half for the Lions.

Upper Cape fell to 6-4.

Dennis-Yarmouth 38, Dedham 13: The Marauders got the first and last score, but the Dolphins dominated everything in between in non-playoff action in South Yarmouth.

Geoffrey Jamiel caught two touchdown passes and ran for a third, while Daryan Thompson ran for 101 yards on 10 carries and caught a touchdown pass for Dennis-Yarmouth (6-4).

After Dedham (7-3) got on the board early in the first, Jamiel hauled in a 9-yard touchdown pass from Payton Doyle to close the Dolphins within 7-6. D-Y then scored three touchdowns in the second. Thompson caught a 9-yard touchdown pass, and Jamiel grabbed a 7-yard touchdown, following up with a 2-yard touchdown run, to give the Dolphins a 24-7 lead entering halftime.

Brockton 40, Barnstable 16: Brian Frieh and J’Adaro France each scored a touchdown in the third quarter, but the Red Raiders were outmatched by the Boxers in non-playoff play in Hyannis.

Ahmik Watterson had three touchdown runs for Brockton (5-4), which took a 27-0 lead into halftime. Treyvon Goodwyn, Rodrigo Lima and Watterson all scored on short TD runs in the first half, and Malik Kirnon caught a TD pass.

Barnstable (6-4) finally scored when Frieh ran in from 11 yards. After another Watterson score, France caught a 23-yard TD pass.

After Watterson’s last score, Colby Burke returned a blocked extra point to the end zone for the last two points.

Holliston 27, Falmouth 6: The Clippers got on the board first, but the Panthers scored 27 unanswered points for the non-playoff win in Holliston.

Kyle Connolly ran in a 1-yard touchdown score to open the scoring for Falmouth (7-2), but Matt Tomacelli imitated the Clippers running back with a 1-yard touchdown run in the second, and it was 6-6 at halftime.

Tristan Benson then ran for a touchdown in each the third and fourth quarters, and Topher Ryan caught a 19-yard, third quarter touchdown pass from Matt Arvanitis to help Holliston (8-1) pull away for the win.

Bristol Plymouth 21, Martha’s Vineyard 14: James Carson ran in a 6-yard touchdown run with 14 seconds to play, helping the Craftsmen past the Vineyarders in non-playoff play in Oak Bluffs.

Martha’s Vineyard (2-8) battled back from a 14-0, first quarter deficit to knot the score through three quarters. Still, Bristol-Plymouth improved to 2-8.

Freshman Antone Moreis bolted 55 yards for a second quarter touchdown, adding the two-point conversion rush to close the Vineyard within 14-8 before halftime.
