WEEK 1: FOOTBALL Portsmouth at Merrimack

WHERE: Merrimack High School

2014 RESULT: Did not play.

FYI: The Tomahawks begin the Kip Jackson coach­ing era with many familiar faces from a sopho­more class a year ago, including junior starting quarterback Justin Grassini. The Clippers (6-4) had a playoff team last year, bowing 35-8 to Ex­eter in the East Conference championship game, and return some key players, including 6-foot-5 senior defensive end Ryan Edney. He should be easy to pick out from the stands.
