NASHUA - Three touchdowns from Salem running back Adam Maroun helped the Blue Devils remain undefeated in a 41-22 victory at Bishop Guertin on Saturday night.
The Blue Devils (6-0) fumbled on their first possession, but an early stop against the Cardinals (1-5) attack allowed the Salem offense to get back to work.
Maroun rushed in two touchdowns, one from 29 yards out and the other from the 1-yard line. Junior Domenic Paci ran in the other from 13 yards to extend the lead to 21-0.
The Cards got on the board right before the half with a 40-yard field goal from Matt Hautsman. On the first BG possession of the second half, Blue Devils sophomore Beau Dillon recovered a blocked punt in the end zone to make it 27-3.
Sophomore Joey Lupo ran back a touchdown on the ensuing kickoff 89 yards to give the Cardinals their first touchdown and cut the deficit to 27-9.
Maroun ran his third TD of the night in on the next possession. Josh Maroun followed up with a TD from the 3-yard line late in the third to make it 41-9. Austin Hiscoe caught a 22 yard pass for the second Cardinals TD and cut it to 41-15. Quarterback Sam Raitt ran in a score from the 1 as time expired to end the scoring.
Pelham 28, Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton 0: Pelham quarterback Ian Hoey threw for 121 yards and two touchdowns and the Pythons defense blanked Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton at Houston fields in Hopkinton.
Hoey was 8-for-14, and also had one pass intercepted, but running back Brett Lindsay scampered for 56 yards on 17 carries for Pelham and caught a 61-yard TD pass from Hoey in the fourth quarter.
Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton (1-4) quarterback Caleb Yianakopolos carried the ball 10 times for only 11 yards, and was 7-for-19 for 52 yards.
After leading at halftime 6-0, Pelham (2-3) scored 22 of its points in the fourth quarter. The Pythons' Chris Barsalou converted a 2-point play after Lindsay's touchdown, and also scored on a 58-yard interception return in the fourth quarter.
Barsalou also scored on a 29-yard TD reception from Hoey in the second quarter.
The Pythons' coach, however, wasn't thrilled with the offensive unit.
"Our defense played well, while our offense, on the other hand...had too many penalties all the way across the board," said head coach Tom Babaian.
Pelham ended the first half with a goal-line stand inside the 1-yard line, and also stopped Hillsboro-Deering/Hopkinton on three separate fourth-down conversion attempts in the second half.
Bow 29, Kennett 19: At Bow, senior running back Jack Coriveau ran for four touchdowns as Bow came off a bye week to improve to 4-1.
Coriveau scored on runs of 12 and six yards in the first quarter, then scampered for a two-yard TD in the third quarter.
Coriveau romped 45 yards in the fourth quarter to ice the win.
Kennett fell to 2-4 on the season.
Plymouth 42, Gilford/Belmont 14: Plymouth's Owen Brickley took the opening kickoff back and Plymouth never looked back.
Plymouth's Nolan Farina ran in from 45 yards out on Plymouth first play. QB Ben Olmstead tossed a 12 yard TD pass to Wes Lambert, a 19-yard strike to Brickley, and a 47-yard pass to Farina.
Plymouth also got a 7-yard TD run from Colby Moore.
Laconia 40, Lebanon 14: At Lebanon, Riley Roy scored two touchdowns on the ground and threw for two to lead the Sachems.
