The Wakefield High Football team defeated Tewksbury on Saturday, 36-12. The Warriors got things started early in the first quarter as senior tight end Mike Reynolds caught a 5 yard TD pass (Caio Pacheco PAT) from senior quarterback John Amentola. Martin Hyppolite then scored on a 5 yard run (Pacheco PAT) to make the score 14-0. In the second quarter Tewksbury was able to score on a nice run by senior runningback Joel Altavesta, but not before Wakefield scored two more Hyppolite touchdowns: a 30 yard run and a 15 yard reception from Amentola. Zach Boyages was able to escape all defenders en route to a 43 yard TD run in the third quarter to make it 36-6. Tewksbury scored in the fourth quarter on another Altevesta run, but it was too little too late.
