Nashoba scripts perfect ending

Last fall’s visit to the MIAA postseason didn’t end the way Nashoba had hoped, with a loss to St. John’s of Shrewsbury in the Division 1 Super Bowl. But a new year, and a new division, produced the perfect ending for the Chieftains yesterday.

Senior quarterback Trevor Wyand ran for a 3-yard touchdown and threw a 66-yard TD pass to junior running back John Ojukwu as Nashoba capped its season with a 27-0 victory over Holy Name in the Division 2 Super Bowl at Fitchburg State.


Junior Zach Hume added a fourth-quarter score on a 30-yard run and senior Carroll Bailey finished off the scoring for the Chieftains (13-0) with a 5-yard TD run with 1:01 left.

Division 3

Auburn 7, Hudson 0 - Junior Drew Goodrich threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to senior Fred Taylor with 6:42 left and Auburn hung on to defeat Hudson at Worcester State. Goodrich’s pass was on the money with Taylor running a post pattern on the left side of the field. Steve St. Jean added the extra point for the Rockets (12-1). The Hawks (9-4) had a chance to tie the score in the closing minute, taking over at their 35, but Connor Fuller’s fourth-down interception clinched the victory.

Northbridge 20, Southbridge 7 - Matt Phelan ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to lead Northbridge at Worcester State. Ryan converted a pair of 1-yard TD sneaks to give the Rams a 13-0 first-quarter lead. The Pioneers cut their deficit to 13-6 on Jason Peck’s 1-yard TD rush in the second quarter, but Phelan’s 10-yard TD pass to Harrison Murphy put Northbridge up by 13 with 41 seconds left in the half.

Division 5

Leicester 20, Clinton 14 - Tyler Goodney ran for a 46-yard touchdown with 3:07 left to lift Leicester at Worcester State. The Gaels drove to the Wolverines’ 11-yard line, but Leicester’s Mason Chapman knocked Clinton quarterback Kyle Cutler out of bounds on fourth and six with 24 seconds left. The Wolverines finished 9-4, winning their first Super Bowl since 2004. The Gaels, after starting 0-4, finished 6-7. Keem Minton’s 4-yard run capped a nine-play, 70-yard drive that gave Leicester a 6-0 lead with 7:01 left in the first quarter, but Cutler’s 3-yard run pulled Clinton even with 2:55 to play. The teams traded touchdowns the second quarter with Michael Bradley scoring on a 6-yard run for the Gaels and Minton scoring for the Wolverines.

Division 6

Bay Path 38, Assabet 34 - Senior quarterback Kyle Pearson threw four touchdown passes, two to Anthony Baez, to lead Bay Path at Fitchburg State. Pearson’s 80-yard TD pass to Tom Gentry with 6:54 left clinched the victory for the Minutemen (11-2), who led, 20-6, after the first quarter. The Aztecs stormed from behind in the fourth quarter, but fell just short. Jeff Maiocchi’s 1-yard TD run pulled Assabet to within 12 points with 4:05 left and Paul Harpin’s 10-yard TD run made it a 4-point game with 1:06 to go. Nate Costello’s 73-yard TD run gave the Aztecs a 6-0 lead just 53 seconds into the game.
