Chiasson's 209 rushing yards lead to homecoming win for LHS

The Laconia Sachems (1-1) ran away with a victory 58-19 on homecoming against the Manchester West Blue on Friday night. Junior running back Kyle Chiasson ran wild, piling up 209 yards and four touchdowns in the first half of game. Coach Craig Kozens said Chiasson, the team's primary back,  has taken his game to a higher level this year. "He (Chiasson) put time into the weight room and is playing stronger. He is blessed with speed and vision and has been a workhorse for us." Chiasson has amassed over 400 yards in the first two games of the year.

Homecoming festivities kicked of the evening at Bank of New Hampshire Field on Friday night. "It's always nice to put a quality show on for Homecoming. We are glad to make the alumni proud," continued Kozens. Once the game started the Sachems fumbled the opening kickoff and Manchester scored on the first offensive play from scrimmage. The Blue Knights enjoyed the lead for less than a minute before Laconia began piling on the points. Laconia's Jacob Fillgate scored his first TD of the year on a 43 yard scamper down the Laconia sideline. Fulgate had 137 yards on four carries to accompany Chiasson in the backfield.

The Sachems head to Hanover on Friday night. "Hanover will be a tough one. Our team speed and great offensive and defensive line give us a chance every time we take the field," added Kozens. "Coach Orton has his offensive line playing very well right now. They are playing as one." Last season, Laconia held of the Marauders and their 20 point second half to for a 26-20 victory at home. Hanover is 1-1.

Winnisquam are 2-0 on the year after a 22-6 win in Meredith against the Inter-Lakes-Moultonborough Lakers. "We played sloppy at times but got the points when we needed," said Bears head coach Pat Riberdy. The Bears were led by running back Christian Serrano who carried the ball 22 times for 124 yards. "Christian has no quit in him. he gives 100 percent every play to include practice," added Riberty.

The Lakers (1-1) held the Bears to nine points in the first half but could not get anything going offensively to come back. "One play could have turned the tide," said Lakers coach Jon Francis. "We ran into a hammer in Winnisquam. They controlled the battle on both sides of the line." The Lakers were led by Andrew Brothers with 43 hard fought yards and a touchdown.

Inter-Lakes will visit winless Newfound and the South Conference Bears host Farmington (1-1) on Saturday afternoon.

The 2-0 Golden Eagles have sole possession of the top seed in the NHIAA Division III North Conference after a 40-27 victory over Somersworth. Gilford won the Lakes conference last season but will have a bigger challenge with the new alignment because the NHIAA has consolidated four conferences into two, North and South.
