Lane to Holy Cross

Former Georgetown High football star Hunter Lane has committed to Holy Cross for football, he announced on Twitter Wednesday night. Lane, the reigning Daily News Football MVP, is a 6-foot-3, 220-pound tight end coming off a brilliant senior season for the Royals, leading the area with 50 catches for 759 yards while scoring 17 total touchdowns. The son of former New England Patriot lineman Max Lane will do a post-grad year at Phillips Andover this fall before making the jump to Division 1 college football the following year.

End of the road

The Ipswich Post 80 Junior Legion team’s season came to an end Wednesday night with an 8-1 loss to Andover in the District 8 tournament. The team, whose roster includes numerous Triton and Georgetown players, got hits from Cael Kohan, Ryan Lindholm, Andrew Masher, Tristan Witz and Jack Miller in the loss. Ipswich finishes the season 13-3-1 after finishing the regular season atop the District 8 standings.
