LONDONDERRY — It’s been a record-breaking sort of season for the Londonderry football team, and that was no different Friday night.

The Lancers scored their most points in program history, rolling over Manchester Central, 69-22, to finish a perfect 9-0 regular season and earn the No. 1 seed in the North/South playoff bracket. They will host archrival Pinkerton Saturday at 2 p.m. in a rematch of last year’s first round matchup — won by the Astros.

Londonderry led 28-0 after the first quarter, and 48-6 at halftime.

Jeffrey Wiedenfeld had a 13-yard touchdown run and a 79-yard kickoff return, Dylan McEachern scored on a punt return and a 6-yard rushing TD and Cole Keegan had a pick-six.

In the third quarter, Eric Raza housed the Lancers’ second kickoff return TD of the game when he broke off an 85-yarder.

In total, Londonderry had six offensive touchdowns, three special teams scores and one defensive TD.
