Andover rolls in Chelmsford warmup


Beating up on Somerville

The Andover starters played just one possession in the second half against Somerville, building the 34-0 advantage and letting the backups finish the job.

Scarpa again led the way, tossing a pair of touchdown passes to Will Heikkinen in the first half, then adding a score to Andrew Deloury before the starters were pulled early in the third quarter. He also rushed for Andover’s first score of the day.

Jack Sylvester added 116 yards rushing, all but 10 in the first half, and in his first serious action of the season at running back, Jesse Greaves also ran for a score. Chas Heseltine led the defense with 12 tackles.

“We played pretty well,” said senior lineman Andres Christopulos. “There were a few things we could have done better, but we came out smacked them on offense and smacked them on defense. Everyone was hitting.”
