SHREWSBURY, Mass. – The Shrewsbury High School Colonials trounced the Algonquin Tomahawks, 41-6, Saturday at Shrewsbury High School Stadium.

The Colonials managed three touchdowns in the first half, with two by Zach Dionisis and one by Nick Diliberto, to take a 21-0 halftime lead.

Things got worse for Algonquin in the third quarter after Mike Coggeshall’s touchdown pass to Jay Reynolds widened the Colonial’s lead to 28-0.

Algonquin didn’t answer back until the fourth, when the Tomahawks' Steve Roy scored after a 58-yard run. By then, it was too little, too late. Shrewsbury’s Dan Liuovich and Rodrigo Pereira both scored for the 41-6 final.

“Just a nice, thorough game,” said Colonials’ head coach Terry Walles. “The younger guys got in and scored a couple of touchdowns, which was nice. We were pretty efficient, offensively.”

Algonquin’s record fell to 2-8, while Shrewsbury is now 8-2 heading into the Thanksgiving game against Milford in two weeks.

“They (Milford) haven’t had many wins this year, but they’re playing their best football right now,” Walles said, “and we’ll have to be ready for them.”
