Masconomet boys’ cross-country pulls out points against Pentucket

In legging out a 28-29 victory at Pentucket on Friday afternoon, the Masconomet Regional boys’ cross-country team won the individual battles and held off the defending Cape Ann League champions for the decisive points.

Senior Ben Demers (16 minutes, 48 seconds), sophomore Sebastian Gillegan (16:51), and junior Aiden Colbert (16:51) went 2-3-4 on the 2.95-mile course at Pipe Stave Hill in West Newbury.

Colbert and first-year runner Robbie McKersie (17:28), who placed seventh, held off Pentucket runners down the stretch to get points for the Chieftains.


‘‘They both won their individual battles. If either of them lost, we would have lost by a point,’’ said coach Patrick Mahoney.
