Londonderry defends D-I girls basketball title

Nashua Telegraph - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 19:01

MANCHESTER – Nick Theos was talking about Friday’s Division I championship game, won by the first-year coach’s Londonderry High School girls basketball team, when a familiar face came to congratulate him. John Fagula put his arm around Theos after the No. 2 Lancers had defeated No. 9 Winnacunnet 48-33 to win their second straight title and gave the fellow coach a smile. “See how easy it is?” Fagula said, and both laughed. On this night, with the game plan Theos put in place, and the way Londonderry executed it, it was. The Lancers’ zone defense kept Winnacunnet’s Meg Knollmeyer from beating them inside, which allowed Londonderry’s guards to put more pressure on the Warriors’ outside shooters than they were accustomed. The result was a game that Londonderry (20-2) led from start to finish, avoiding many scares from the Warriors (14-8). “We were going to try our best to not let (Knollmeyer) get going,” Theos said.

Bioshop Guertin hockey player Justin Pearson hits his stride

Nashua Telegraph - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 19:01

Bishop Guertin High School boys hockey coach Gary Bishop always says that goal scorers are born, not made. Then he must have jumped for joy some 17 years ago when Justin Pearson’s birth was announced. Pearson has become a go-to player for the Cardinals, who take on Concord at 4:30 p.m. Saturday in the Division I boys hockey championship game at Manchester’s  Verizon Wireless Arena. “He’s just got real good ability with the puck, real good hockey sense, and real high hockey IQ,” Bishop said. “He’s one of these kids that makes people around him better. He moves the puck well, he hits the open man.

Bishop Guertin, Concord vie for high school hockey crown

Nashua Telegraph - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 19:00

When the Bishop Guertin and Concord High School boys hockey teams take the Verizon Wireless Arena ice at 4:30 p.m. Saturday for the Division I final, it will seem like old times for many. They play each other every regular season, but this is a renewal of a postseason rivalry that nearly two decades ago was unlike any other. “I called Bish the other night after the Salem game,” Concord coach Duncan Walsh said, referring to Guertin coach Gary Bishop, “and I was telling him, ‘Wouldn’t it be great if on Wednesday you win and we win. It’s unbelievable. Of all the years for us to meet again.” In many respects, it’s an unlikely meeting.

New Hampshire high school hockey tourney a great take

Nashua Telegraph - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 18:01

Bishop Guertin High School boys hockey coach Gary Bishop looked around the dressing room prior to the start of the dramatic second overtime of Wednesday night’s Division I semifinals and asked his players a question. “Are you guys having fun yet?” he said. Bishop’s point was clear: These moments should be cherished. “Why do you think we do this?” he said. “There’s nothing better than to be in a semifinal game in the second overtime. These are stories. These are things you remember for life.” Wednesday night at Manchester’s JFK Coliseum was certainly a night to remember, especially for Concord and BG, who will look to make more memories on Saturday in the Division I final at the Verizon Wireless Arena.

Nashua teen charged with homicide

Nashua Telegraph - Sat, 03/14/2015 - 17:52

NASHUA – Nashua police have charged a city teenager with the stabbing death of Benjamin Marcum. John Goff, 17, was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, accused of stabbing the 49-year-old Marcum multiple times late Thursday night near the rail trail on Palm Street, police said in a joint release with the New Hampshire Attorney General’s Office. “There’s not too many details that I can go into, but I can say we don’t have any information that the suspect knew the victim prior to the incident,” Senior Assistant Attorney General Benjamin Agati said. Agati would not comment on if a murder weapon was found or if the suspect has a criminal record. Agati said he does not know if Goff, who was arrested without incident, attended a local high school and noted it is not clear how long he has been in Greater Nashua. “I can say at this point that there obviously was an altercation, but I can’t go into more detail because we still have a lot of other steps to take, “ Agati said. “Effective upon his arrest, we wanted to make sure that we let everybody know that he was placed under arrested.
