Tewksbury 34, Lawrence 6

If the Tewksbury High football team played all its games under the light, it might never lose again.

The Redmen opened their 2018 campaign, Friday night at Doucette Field, with a 34-6 romp over Lawrence High. It was the third time Tewksbury has used portable lighting to play a night game at Doucette (first season-opener) and the Redmen are a perfect 3-0.

Senior quarterback Jay Connolly sparked the Tewksbury offense, throwing for 224 yards and a pair of touchdowns on 8 of 12 passing. Shane Aylward hauled in four of those passes for 187 receiving yards and a score.

Kyle Zervas had a big game, rushing for two touchdowns and catching a TD pass.

Tewksbury settled matters early, jumping out to a 14-0 lead after one quarter and building the lead to 21-0 by intermission.

Kyle Derrigo capped the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown run.

The Tewksbury defense recorded three sacks and a fumble recovery.
