TELSTAR AT SACOPEE VALLEY

September 30, 2021

The Rebels (5-0) came out firing to start the game and the defense shut out the Hawks (1-3) in Hiram.

Telstar’s Will Doyle threw five touchdowns passes, including two in the first quarter — an 11-yard pass to Gavinn Martin and a 28-yarder to Wyatt Lilly. Lilly caught three touchdowns.

Telstar head coach Tim O’Connor wanted his team to start fast after only scoring six points in the first half against Maranacook in Week 4.

“We worked on all of those things this week, had good week of practice and we played so much better tonight,” O’Connor said. “Incredibly better. The line played a lot better, we ran the ball well and we passed a lot. I think Will was feeling it tonight and our receivers, we worked on routes all week making sure we ran the right routes and the kids were doing a great job. (Sacopee Valley’s defenders) couldn’t cover them.”

In the second quarter, Lilly caught an 11-yard touchdown pass to put Telstar up 20-0 heading into halftime.

The Rebels’ defense was strong Thursday night, creating turnovers and negative plays for Sacopee Valley.

“The defense was staunch,” O’Connor said. “We had numerous sacks and had a fumble recovery from Cruise Kimball and an interception by Brayden Stevens.”

In the third quarter, Doyle threw two more touchdowns. One was a 47-yarder to Cameron Palmer and the other was a 25-yard pass to Lilly.
