Pentucket suffers heartbreaking loss in D4 North final

Pentucket suffers devastating OT loss


But on up fourth-and-10, Bucs QB Joey Zampell — who had not completed a pass since the first half — set up Abner for a middle screen and the back eluded tacklers into the end zone.

The Sachems took over, but Kuchar was sacked on first and second down, and a desperation pass on fourth down fell incomplete.

“We fought them the whole game,” said Hayden. “(Abner) is a terrific player, and we held him in check. We lost some key players and we continued to battle. The defense did a great job. This is a tough one.

“When you lose something in life, it hurts. But later on hopefully we will look at it and see we did something most people thought we couldn’t.”
