Pioneers dispatch Winthrop with ease to remain undefeated after four games

alt


alt


In the last two weeks, the Lynnfield High School football team has outscored its opponents, 74-6 to easily run its record to 4-0 in the Cape Ann League.

Winthrop, who’s definitely in the rebuilding mode, was their latest victim last Friday night to the tune of 47-6. But coach Neal Weidman understands it will only get tougher going forward starting with Ipswich on the road Friday night, Oct. 6, beginning at 7 p.m.

The Pioneers were able to take advantage of the inexperience on the Viking sidelines, putting up points almost at will in the beginning. They had the ball on six separate occasions throughout the first half, and ended up needing only to call 14 plays to score a touchdown each time. As a result of the domination, Weidman was able to empty his bench to get the JV players some varsity experience.

Nick Kinnon began the offensive surge with an electrifying 59-yard run to paydirt, but ironically the Vikings answered that score with a touchdown of their own to trim the deficit to one, 7-6. However, that was the last time they were able to get that close to the Pioneers.

Senior captain Anthony Murphy then started the parade of Lynnfield touchdowns from two yards out. Quarterback Matt Mortellite hooked up with Kinnon on an option play, and after a brief scare when the Lynnfield wide receiver dropped the ball at the 10 he was able to put the fears to rest by recovering the fumble and scooting home for six.

Lynnfield was ahead, 20-6 at that point, and there was still three minutes left in the first quarter.

Sophomore John Lee then got his chance to play in a varsity game, and he took advantage of the opportunity with a touchdown run.

Tyler Murphy was credited with the team’s fifth score from 30 yards out.

It was time for more Lynnfield understudies to play in a varsity game. Mortellite came out in favor of junior Brett Cohee, who took the snap from the 10 and promptly jaunted to the end zone for six more points. Cohee tacked on another touchdown for his portfolio in the third quarter with a long distance 85-yard score.

Of course, there’s more good news. The Lynnfield boys remain undefeated with the Super Bowl playoffs on the horizon. But there are still three more regular season games left, before they get that opportunity to hopefully represent Division 5 at Gillette Stadium in December, and the Tigers are first in line to threaten their preseason goal.

But you can bet, Mortellite, Kinnon and company will be waiting for them to make sure the streak continues.
