Newburyport quarterback Joe Clancy threw four touchdown passes, the last with a minute to go in the game, and the host Clippers stunned previously unbeaten Georgetown, 27-26, in a Cape Ann Small contest last night.

The result leaves Newburyport atop the standings at 5-0 (5-5 overall), while Georgetown dropped to 8-1, 5-1. Newburyport plays Amesbury on Thanksgiving. If the Clippers win they will clinch the title and a playoff berth.
