The Londonderry High School Football team was able to get past the Windham High School Jaguars by a one touchdown difference last week for the Lancers fourth win of the season.
One week after suffering a tough four-point loss at Pinkerton Academy, during Mack Plaque, the LHS squad came out of halftime at 14-all in Windham and scored the only points in the second half for a 21-14 victory.
Londonderry dominated in most of the offensive statistics in the game with LHS getting 345-yards in total offense with WHS getting 176.
The Lancers possessed the ball about 10-minutes longer than the Jags, and rushing yards went to Londonderry by a 279 to 101 tally.
Junior quarterback, Sam Ogden, had 145-yards of offense in the contest, including rushing for two of the three LHS touchdowns in the game. Ogden had 108-yards on the ground, including a 60-yard run and the game-winning touchdown.
Ogden also led in receiving, getting 25 of the 67-yards. Senior tight-end, Jaydon Navarro, had 15-yards caught.
Senior quarterback, Conor Williams, tallied 50-yards on the ground.
On defense, senior Ty Miles had six sacks in the game, five solo and one assisted.
The rather wet field conditions that evening led to the games first turnover on Windham’s first drive of the game. After just three plays, junior linebacker, Devin Boles, recovered the fumble at the Jags 36-yard line. The fumble led to the Lancers first points of the game, Williams carried the ball in on a quarterback keeper from the 11-yard line for the 6-0 lead.
Junior kicker, Blake Thompson, tacked on the extra-point for a 7-0 lead.
Windham came right back on their following drive, scoring on 12-plays and starting from the 20-yard line.
Londonderry was first to score in the second quarter, Ogden scored his first of two running touchdowns from Windham’s 28-yard line.
The Thompson extra-point gave LHS a 14-7 lead, but WHS tied the game halfway through the second quarter.
The game-winning touchdown came in the third quarter with Ogden running the ball in from the six-yard line. The final points came after an impressive drive starting at their 15-yard line, eating up nine-minutes of the clock and tallying 17-plays.
The 4-1 Lancers are scheduled for their third consecutive road game on Friday night, Oct. 29, to take on the Nashua North Titans at Stellos Stadium, starting at 6:30 p.m.
