LONDONDERRY — The tough start to the season for the Timberlane football team continued Friday night.

Londonderry, the No. 1 ranked team in Division 1 by the Union Leader, took it the Owls at home to the tune of a 56-7 throttling. The Owls (0-3) scored their lone touchdown when Cameron Lovett returned a kickoff 85 yards to the house to make it a 7-7 game in the first quarter.

But from there, it was all Londonderry (3-0).

After Jack McEachern logged a 43-yard touchdown run to start the scoring, the Lancers ripped off 49 unanswered points over the next three quarters after Timberlane’s lone core. It was a 35-7 Lancers lead at halftime, with the reserves getting ample playing time after the break. In total, the Lancers ripped off a whopping 350 rushing yards on 35 carries.

The quarterback McEachern accounted for three touchdowns, hitting Alex Tsetsilas on a 29-yard strike and Cole Keegan on a 25-yard pass for his other two scores. Tsetsilas added a 39-yard touchdown run in the first quarter, and Jeffrey Wiedenfeld got in on the fun with a 23-yard scamper right before half.

After the break, backup QB Dylan McEachern threw a touchdown pass to Matt Jones before running in another one himself.

Defensively, Dylan Coyle and Caleb Vlack led the Owls with five tackles each.

Timberlane hosts Salem Friday at 6:30 p.m., while Londonderry prepares for its showdown with archrival Pinkerton Friday night (7 p.m.).
