Pelham Finds Its Legs in Runaway Victory on Road
KINGSTON -- Pelham kicked its offense into high gear on Saturday and it resulted in a dynamic performance.
The Pythons chewed up 200 yards on the ground and added another 203 in the air en route to beating host Sanborn, 32-13. Pelham improved to 1-1 on the young New Hampshire high school football season.
Sanborn is also 1-1.
Pelham trailed, 7-6, early in the second quarter and then reeled-off 21 straight points to take command of the contest. Quarterback Ian Hoey tossed four touchdown passes, two of which went to Nicholas Milano -- a 22-yard strike in the first quarter and a 24-yard connection in the second quarter. Matt Crowley and Colby Travis also had touchdown receptions, and Brett Lindsay had a 30-yard TD run.
“The team did a great job,” said Pelham head coach Tom Babaian. “I thought today we showed a multi-dimensional offense, which will help us as the season progresses.”
The Pythons led, 26-7, early in the fourth quarter. Lindsay finished his day with 131 yards on 23 carries. Hoey completed 16-of-23 passes.
The Pelham defense, meanwhile, applied pressure throughout the game. It amassed four sacks, two forced fumbles and an interception.
