DERRY — A longstanding rivalry between two high schools continued on the basketball court recently as Pinkerton Academy’s Astros came out on top over rival Londonderry in tournament play.

The game held Feb. 9 was a New Hampshire District 1 first round. The No. 4 Astros beat No. 13-seeded Lancers by a score of 65-49.

It was sweet revenge for Pinkerton, which was eliminated by Londonderry in the first round a season ago.

“They knocked us out last year and we never want to let that happen,” said star 6-foot-7 sophomore forward Jackson Marshall, who scored a game-high 23 points. “We always want to take down Londonderry. We never want to let them leave our gym with a win. It means a lot.”
