Weymouth runs over Wellesley
This story is from BostonGlobe.com, the only place for complete digital access to the Globe.
A 41-yard touchdown pass from receiver David Harrison to Tyler O’Brien in the fourth quarter helped Weymouth beat host Wellesley, 31-20, Saturday.
Harrison, a junior, did a little bit of everything for the Wildcats. He finished with five receptions for 110 yards and two touchdowns, rushed for 24 yards on four carries, and made four tackles and an interception on defense.
“Second week in a row he’s come along and really impacted the game in numerous ways. He’s a very talented kid,” said Weymouth coach Kevin Mackin.
Harrison caught four touchdown passes last week in Weymouth’s 35-7 win over Milton.
Wildcats quarterback Jack Lehan threw three touchdown passes and has now thrown five touchdowns this season, four to Harrison.
Wellesley’s defensive focus on Harrison opened opportunities for O’Brien, who caught two touchdown passes.
But the Raiders also had some success in the air as Chris Sarni threw a 73-yard touchdown pass to Ned Holmes in the first quarter, and later connected with Isaac Blake for an 18-yarder. Sarni also had a rushing touchdown.
Weymouth’s defensive line, led by tackles Jarred Stokes and James Lamour, controlled Wellesley’s run attack, though. Linebacker James Bradley also came up with a key interception in the fourth quarter.
The Wildcats did struggle in their kicking game, missing four of their five PAT attempts. Mackin noted that All-Scholastic running back/receiver/cornerback Ozzy Colarusso, who also kicks for the Wildcats, didn’t play because of a nagging injury.
“We can be better in spots and have to eliminate some of the sloppiness,” Mackin said. “We feel pretty good right now though.”
