Senior moments keep football team undefeated: Senior moments are not occurrences we look forward to having. However, on Friday night, senior moments led the way to Hull’s third straight win to open the season. Senior quarterback Luke Richardson scored twice, senior John Gianibas had a pair of touchdowns, and senior Tyler Sordillo caught a 47-yard scoring pass as host Hull (3-0) routed Boston English, 35-8, in front of large Homecoming crowd. On defense, senior Aidan Murphy had 14 tackles, while Sordillo had 13. Senior Austin Bongo added 8 tackles and a sack. Hull struck early when Sean Reilly (OK … he’s a junior) recovered a fumble on English’s first play of the game, which led to a two-yard keeper for a score by Richardson. Gianibas (6 carries for 121 yards) led Hull on its next drive, which he capped with a two-yard scoring run. He later ran to paydirt on a 29-yard run and junior Nick Tiani ran in the two-point conversion. Hull’s final scoring drive was set up by a 42-yard run by senior Ethan Campbell, setting up Ricardson’s second score. Senior Logan Chenette was 3-for-3 on extra point tries. Hull travels to Randolph for a key league match up on Friday at 6 p.m.
