The Lawrence seniors came out firing in the last game of their careers with a 28-0 shutout of visiting Salem (N.H.) on Wednesday.
Sophomore Nelson Valerio and senior Louis Rosa split time under center to lead the Lancers (3-8) into the end zone in every quarter.
In the first, Franger Baez caught a 30-yard pass from Rosa to put Lawrence on the board. Xavier Santiago’s PAT was good; he was 4 for 4 on the day.
Before the half was over, Jeremiah Damiron rushed for a 3-yard touchdown. Rosa threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to George Urena in the third quarter and finished his three-touchdown game with a 1-yard rush in the fourth.
Although Valerio wasn’t in for any of the scoring plays, he was responsible for moving the Lancers down the field. He finished his career with a school-record 2,000 passing yards. The previous record of 1,900 was held by 2011 graduate Nick Elwell, who is now a quarterback at Norwich University.
Urena, another senior, also reached a benchmark. His 110 receiving yards put him over 1,000 for the season.
