LHS round-up: football team heads to Kennett for North Conference showdown

LACONIA — The Sachems (3-4) head to Kennett tonight, attempting to return to a .500. Laconia comes to the game after an exciting win over Lebanon last week, one which saw the Sachems mount a fourth quarter comeback sparked by a strip fumble that was returned 70 yards for a defensive touchdown. Laconia would score 13 points in the final frame to beat Lebanon (2-5) 20-17. The Sachems are in control of their own destiny for a playoff berth, but have to win tonight and next week against Milford to secure a spot in the NHIAA Division II playoffs.
