Game of the week

Pentucket at Newburyport

If recent history is any indication, fans can expect this game to come down to the final play. In each of the last two seasons, Newburyport has overcome a two-score, second-half deficit to come out on top. Last year, the Clippers trailed 19-0 in the first quarter, before rallying to take a 20-19 lead in the fourth quarter. Pentucket drove downfield and set up a field goal attempt in the final seconds, only to have the kick blocked. Prior to Newburyport’s two-game winning streak, Pentucket had won 10 of 11 meetings dating back to 1999.
