Pinkerton impressive in win
Ryan Williams scored two goals, and Pinkerton Academy of Derry snapped a three-game losing streak with an impressive 5-0 win at Nashua North in Division I soccer play Thursday.
Tim Wood set the tone early, scoring in the fourth minute, and Devin Croteau scored to give Pinkerton a 2-0 lead at halftime.
Williams scored twice within a 10-minute span, and Devin Moore added the final goal as the Astros improved to 9-4. The Astros also were led by Chris Horan, John Hamilton, Matt Dunn and Brian Kling. Alex Horan made three saves for the shutout. North goalie Tim Closson had 16 saves.
The Titans fell to 3-7-2.
“Boy, did we need this. We have been struggling in all areas of the game for the past week, and it was nice to see the boys respond like this today,” Pinkerton coach Kerry Boles said. “The intensity, the attitude and aggressiveness picked up a few notches and a good result followed. We will need similar play on Wednesday when we host undefeated Bedford. This will be another major test and challenge for us.”
Bedford 4, Londonderry 3 (OT): Amy Gagliardi scored in overtime to lift Bedford past visiting Londonderry. Lindsey Poremba, Tory Call and Laura Costas also scored for Bedford (4-7) in a back-and-forth affair. The Lancers dropped to 7-5.
