5th & 6th Grade
Winnacunnet 22, Tewksbury Red Pride A 6
Tewksbury fell behind quickly, but ended strong through the air behind the arm of quarterback Danny Fleming. Fleming connected on two passes to Michael Sullivan that covered 70 yards, the second of which was a 30-yard touchdown . Nick Tracy, Colin Goggins, and Keith Johnston Jr. put forth solid efforts on both sides of the football for Red.
Winnacunnet 44, Tewksbury Red Pride B 12
The Red Pride B team fell behind quickly and trailed 20-0 at the half, but rallied back to start the third quarter. Colin Fraser found a crack in the Timberlane defense and scampered for the 50-yard touchdown. Abe Figueroa, Shamus Covel, and Felix Navarette provided strong offensive line play. Quarterback Nick DeGloria completed some long receptions late in the game to Um’ari Seney and Richie Bongiorno, but came up just short on some late-game heroics.
The defense shined in the second half, shutting out Timberlane. The suffocating defensive line play of Cooper Lemieux, Jason Svendsen and Max Mattuchio highlighted Red’s defensive effort, while Sean Hirtle, Jack Donovan, Tyler Leeds and Ryan Mottolo collected tackle after tackle.

Tewksbury’s Jake Kaiser was able to find the end zone in the first half after a Lowell score.
In second half play, Tewksbury defensive ends Matthew Rosemond and Kenny Wilson did a fine job trying to contain Lowell, while big runs by fullback Patrick Latournue and clutch catches from wideout Richie Markwarth help set up the Tewksbury’s next few scoring drives.
