“We got a big game out of Ryan Foley and Ray Melis had a terrific catch,” said Connors. “Our skill guys made some big plays, but I thought our line played well, too.”
Both teams came into the game after notching their first wins of the year, Ipswich over Georgetown (14-0) and Amesbury over Hamilton-Wenham (20-13). Early on it looked like the Indians were intent on posting back-to-back wins.
Foley found the edge on Amesbury’s first drive and sprinted 33 yards for the first score of the game.
The Tigers would take to the air for their only score of the half as senior quarterback Kyle Blomster connected with classmate Nate Glaster on a 53-yard pass play to get things going.
Two plays later, Blomster found Eddie Flaherty from 29 yards out to tie the game with two minutes to go in the opening quarter. Cullen and the Indians would take over from there, however, scoring the final 22 points of the half.
Amesbury will look to make it three in a row next Saturday when it travels to Georgetown.
