2015 Gridiron Game Recap: Tewksbury 21, Concord-Carlisle 13
TEWKSBURY – In an opening day game between two of Division 3’s top programs, it would be Tewksbury who would come out victorious, with a 23-13 victory over Concord-Carlisle.
After an impressive opening scoring drive from Concord-Carlisle, Tewksbury would answer back in a big way, scoring 23 unanswered points, en-route to a 23-7 halftime lead.
In the second half C-C turned up the defensive intensity and shut the Redmen out for the remainder of the game, but the Tewksbury defense was too tough, holding the Patriots to just one second half touchdown to earn the victory.

In our player breakdown we take a look at some of the players who shined on Saturday.
Player of the Game: Troy Carey ’16, RB – Tewksbury (pictured above)
Carey scored all three touchdowns for Tewksbury on the ground, as he helped lead the Redmen to the opening day victory on Saturday. Carey showed his versatility out of the backfield, pounding the ball in between the tackles and also showing a nice ability to get outside and make tacklers miss. Carey ended the day with 110 yards rushing in the win.
Runner Up: Austin Hoey ’16, QB – Concord-Carlisle (pictured below)
The veteran C-C signal caller had a nice game in his 2015 opener battling a relentless and pressuring Tewksbury defense. The 6-foot-2 dual threat quarterback connected for two touchdown passes and also showed poise and escape-ability both inside and outside the pocket. The three-sport athlete looks primed and ready to do damage in the Dual County league this season and potentially guide C-C back to another playoff run.
Others who impressed:
Brett Morris ’16, QB – Tewksbury - Morris deferred most of the day to Carey and the Tewksbury run game, but he did display his maturity and skills when called upon.
Adam Gajjoui ’16, WR – Gajjoui (pictured below) showed-off his hands-catch ability, as the featured outside weapon for Morris. His ability to get down field and haul in receptions will certainly be important assets for the Tewksbury offense this season.
Ryan Morris ’17, LB – Tewksbury – Morris was all over the field for Tewksbury on the defensive side of the ball. The hard-hitting and aggessive LB impressed us with his tenacity, motor and big-stick ability.
Tewksbury – Broc Dokos '16, LB, Tyler Ward ’17, RB/DB, T.J. Contalonis ’16, C/DT, and Stephen Bonugli '16, OL.
Sam Randle ’17, RB – Concord-Carlisle – Randle (pictured below) excelled between the tackles in the first half and showed the tough running style that is a necessity in C-C's ground-and-pound offensive game plan.
Kejuan Farquarson ’16, RB/ATH/DB – Farquarson was limited by the swarming Tewksbury defense, but he did manage to break a couple of plays open, lining up in the slot. The versatile and explosive athlete should see far more success, as C-C’s season progresses.
C-C - Andrew Gemelli ’16 (1 TD) , WR , Ethan vanderWilden OL, Jovan Grant WR/DB (1 TD), Patrick Crowley ’16 LB
