Friday night's Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Generals football game at Amesbury has been moved to Saturday afternoon.
The football Generals from Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School were scheduled to play Friday night in Amesbury against Cape Ann League/Northeastern Conference Tier 3 opponent Amesbury. But last week, concerns about Eastern equine encephalitis in Amesbury elevated the threat level there to "critical." And that has prompted the evening football game to be rescheduled to Saturday at 1 p.m., according to the Hamilton-Wenham Athletics Twitter feed and a report in the Newburyport Daily News. Amesbury is one of six communities in the greater Newburyport area that has placed a ban on outdoor activities between 5 p.m. and 5 p.m. because of concerns about West Nile Virus and EEE. Other communities with some sort of ban include Merrimac, Newbury, …

The Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School football team had not lost a regular season game since early October in 2010 - nearly two years - before Saturday.
The Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School football team has been on quite a run - a streak of 16 straight regular season wins that dates back to Oct. 8, 2010. It included an undefeated regular season in 2011 that saw the team go to the Div. 3A Super Bowl before a heartbreaking loss to Bourne High School. But that streak came to an end on Saturday afternoon in West Newbury when the Generals lost to Pentucket High School 34-15, The Salem News reports. The Generals were up 7-6 at halftime after giving up a first quarter touchdown and then scoring their own, also in the first quarter. But it was the second half when the Sachems blew open the game behind runs of 7, 10 and 42 yards by Cody Rothwell, according to the Salem News. The Generals are …

An essential get-me-going daily morning column from Hamilton-Wenham Patch.
Today is Monday, Dec. 5. Here are five things you need to know: 1. Winter? On Monday, you will probably be wondering, once again, if winter is really about to arrive. The forecast calls for temperatures well into the 50s with a mix of clouds and sun. 2. Wreaths Across America: For the past two years, truckloads of wreaths traveling from Maine to Washington, D.C. have passed through the two towns as part of the “Wreaths Across America” trip in early December. Unfortunately, this year the caravan will pass just to the west of Hamilton and Wenham with a stop at the Topsfield Fairgrounds between 10 a.m. and noon on Monday. 3. Dogs at Your Desk: Monday is “Dogs at Your Desk” Day at the state Attorney General’s office and some other employers, …

Despite starting quarterback Trevor Lyons leaving in first half with an injury, Hamilton-Wenham hangs with Bourne in the school's first-ever Super Bowl appearance on Saturday.
It is obvious that a football team’s offense runs through the quarterback. The importance of that one player is evident when the signal-caller is equally adept running the ball as he is distributing it through the air. So when Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School’s Trevor Lyons went down with an injury in the first half of his team’s Division 3A Super Bowl tilt again Bourne on Saturday, the task at hand for the Generals became that much more daunting. That is not an easy thing to ask, especially against an undefeated opponent in a championship game. Hamilton-Wenham stayed with the Canalmen for the entire game but just couldn’t get over the hump in a 16-14 loss. “Against a championship defense it is pretty hard to move the ball, but when …

The chairmen of the boards of selectmen in Hamilton and Wenham have a friendly bet with their counterpart in Bourne - a former Wenham resident and selectman himself - that will award a free lunch based on the outcome of Saturday's Super Bowl game.
There’s a free lunch on the line at Saturday’s Super Bowl matchup between Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School and Bourne High School. The chairmen of the Boards of Selectmen for each school have bet that their team will win. The loser will pay for lunch for the winner. Wenham Town Administrator Jeff Chelgren, who contacted Bourne Board of Selectmen Chairman Don Pickard after the Generals big win Tuesday night, organized the friendly bet. As it turns out, Pickard is no stranger to Chelgren or Wenham – he served as a Wenham Selectmen from 2003 to 2006. “The idea came from up your way,” Pickard said in a cell phone interview on Friday afternoon. Since there are five Bourne Selectmen and a combined eight selectmen in Hamilton and Wenham, the …
Bourne High School running back Joe Epps presents different challenge than Newburyport's passing attack in Saturday's Div. 3A Super Bowl matchup.
After four months of football and 11 games, it all comes down to Saturday’s Division 3A Super Bowl for the Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Generals. The game versus Bourne High School is Saturday at noon at Lynn's Manning Field. And following the teams’s edge-of-your-seat victory over Newburyport on Tuesday coach, Andrew Morency feels his team is ready for anything. “I think a game like (Tuesday) was important for us,” said Morency, whose team scored with 32.8 seconds in the game for a 7-0 triumph. “It was playoff football where we had to tighten the reins, go back and forth, down to the last minute. “To be a part of that and to come out successfully, we hope to gain from it.” One aspect his squad won’t be able to use from the last-…
