PORTSMOUTH — The Portsmouth High varsity football team advanced to the second round of the Division I playoffs after making easy work of Shea in the opener at home last Friday.

The Patriots dominated the Raiders from the get-go, winning 48-14. 

They will now face Cumberland on the road on Friday, Nov. 12. Kickoff is at 6 p.m.

Portsmouth’s Evan Beese had a great night contributing on both sides of the ball. He scored two touchdowns — one on a 45-yard reception of a throw by quarterback Benny Hurd — and also intercepted a pass on defense.

Carson Conheeny provided one of the many highlights of the game by running 94 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter.

In separate plays, Luke Brennan ran for a 9-yard touchdown and recovered a fumble.

Marcus Evans scored a TD on a 1-yard run.

Hurd intercepted a pass and ran for 54 yards on nine carries.

The Patriots’ kicker, Andrew Perry, was perfect Friday night. He made all six extra-point attempts and added field goals of 25 and 29 yards.
