Tewksbury 19, Westford 14

Troy Carey's one-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter lifted Tewksbury to a hard-earned 19-14 win over Westford Academy, Friday night.

The Redmen (7-2) got off to a strong start when 
Brett Morris connected with Adam Gajjaoui from 28 yards out to take a 7-0 lead. An 18-yard touchdown run by Tyler Ward made it 13-0 and it looked like the rout was on.

But the Grey Ghosts answered with two quick strikes, including a 5-yard touchdown run, to take a 14-13 lead into halftime.

The second half belonged to the Tewksbury defense, which clamped down on Westford and kept the game close until Carey's game-winning touchdown.

Tewksbury is off until Thanksgiving, when it takes on arch-rival Wilmington High.

Tewksbury stayed within a goal until Wakefield netted an insurance tally late in the second half.
