FOXBOROUGH -- Check out all of the results from Super Saturday (and Sunday), along with Eastern Mass. recaps below.
BC High 13, Brockton 7 -- BC High put together a monster 18-play, 72-yard scoring drive culminating in a late first-half score that ultimately lifted the Eagles to a 13-7 triumph over Brockton in the Division 1 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
Tyler Horan, who finished that long trek with a 1-yard plunge, piled up 139 yards on 27 carries to pace the Eagles. Brockton mustered only 116 yards of total offense, largely because BC High dominated time of possession by holding the ball for nearly the entire second quarter.
Khalil James-Offley finished with 55 yards on 13 carries with his team's lone score.
Horan also caught a 48-yard screen pass for the Eagles' other score.
Dracut 27, Marshfield 0 -- Matt Grimard rushed for a pair of first-half scores, then threw for another in the third quarter as Dracut blanked Marshfield, 27-0, in the Division 1A Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
Marshfield mustered only 92 yards in the first half and struggled to generate scoring chances all night.
Jordan Murphy caught a third-quarter touchdown pass, while Jonathan Rivera rushed for a fourth-quarter score.
Walpole 41, Mansfield 21 -- Ryan Izzo found the end zone three times, including once out of the Wildcat formation and another on a perfect hook-'n'-ladder play late in the first half as the Rebels emerged with a 41-21 triumph in the Division 2 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
Izzo finished with 193 yards on 29 carries. Overall, Walpole piled up 366 yards of total offense and cruised to the finish after lead 34-7 at the intermission.
Walpole avenges a loss to Bishop Feehan in last year's Division 2 title game and finishes the 2008 season a perfect 13-0. Mansfield was hampered by 11 penalties.
Duxbury 46, Gloucester 20 -- Duxbury scored a trio of fourth-quarter touchdowns to motor away for a 46-20 triumph in the Division 2A Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
The Dragons piled up 442 yards of total offense, including 334 yards through the air.
Quarterback Sean Cross completed 14 of 25 passes for 334 yards with four touchdowns and an interception. Iowa-bound Shane DiBona rushed 14 times for 79 yards.
Gloucester trailed 25-20 entering the fourth quarter, but Duxbury quickly left the Fishermen in the dust.
Arlington Catholic 32, Norton, 20 -- Arlington Catholic senior quarterback Corey Spencer completed 14 of 27 passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns to lead the Cougars past Norton, 32-20, in the Division 3 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
Wide receiver Ricky Douglas hauled in a pair of touchdowns as AC overcame an early 12-6 deficit with four consecutive scores to motor away from the Lancers.
Norton star running back Sean Ryan rushed 19 times for 159 yards with two scores, but also had two costly fumbles, one that was recovered for an AC touchdown and the other inside the AC 5 to short-circuit a potential second-half scoring drive.
Amesbury 40, Martha's Vineyard 19 -- Amesbury scored three times in the first 11 minutes and breezed to a 40-19 triumph over Martha's Vineyard in the Division 3A Super Bowl at Bentley College.
Holding a 21-0 lead just one minute into the second quarter, and a 34-7 advantage by the half, the Indians (12-1) erased any chance for a competitive contest, holding the Vineyarders (11-2) in check on both the offensive and defensive line throughout.
In turn, the gaping holes created by Amesbury led to three memorable rushing performances -- Jared Flanniganís 150 yards on 11 rushes (to go with 56 yards passing as well), with Jesse Burrell (12 carries, 117 yards) and Kevin Johnston (13-67) as support.
Manchester-Essex 36, Tri-County 6 -- Manchester-Essex senior quarterback Pat Orlando completed 9 of 13 passes for 172 yards and three touchdowns as the Hornets stung Tri-County, 36-6, in the Division 4 Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium.
With the three touchdowns, Orlando overtook his brother, Vinny, for the school's career leader in that category with 54. Doug Kenerson hauled in two of those touchdown passes, including a brilliant grab in the back of the end zone in the first half, while Ben Kekeisen caught the other.
Tri-County was limited to 161 total yards as quarterback Lucas Mistler was 5 of 13 passing for 101 yards with a touchdown.
