YARMOUTH — Fryeburg Academy knocked Yarmouth from the ranks of the undefeated with a 53-14 win in a Class C South football game Friday night.

Jason Chisari and Cory Gullikson ran wild as the Raiders recovered from losses to undefeated Cape Elizabeth and Wells to even their record at 2-2.

“This is a big win for us to get us back in the hunt,” Fryeburg Academy Coach David Turner said.

Chisari rushed for 202 yards on 16 carries and scored four touchdowns, and Gullikson rushed 125 yards and three touchdowns on 14 carries as Fryeburg churned out 475 yards of offense.

“We took over up front,” Turner said. “Our linemen are quick and they move guys around. We thought if we kept pounding we would wear (Yarmouth) down, and that’s what happened.”

The loss dropped the defending regional champions to 3-1. Last fall, the Clippers ran away with a 54-12 win over the Raiders in a regional semifinal.

“This year we’re completely different teams,” Yarmouth Coach Jason Veilleux said. “We’re a very young team made up mostly of sophomores.”

Fryeburg Academy held a 20-0 lead at halftime.

Chisari opened the scoring less than four minutes into the game on the Raiders’ first offensive play. He swept left, shook off a defender near the line of scrimmage and raced down the sideline 77 yards for a 6-0 lead.

The Raiders made it 12-0 midway through the second quarter when Chisari slanted right 13 yards for a touchdown that capped a 10-play, 56-yard drive following a Yarmouth punt.

With less than three minutes left in the first half, Chisari shook off several defenders while zigzagging back and forth across the field for a 47-yard touchdown. The score came just three plays after another Yarmouth punt.

Gullikson took over in the second half. He scored on runs of 25 and 5 yards as the Raiders stretched their lead to 33-0 lead in the third quarter.

Less than two minutes into the fourth quarter, Gullikson got behind the defense on the first play after a punt. Quarterback Oscar Saunders threw a strike, and Gullikson scored on a play that covered 96 yards.

Justin Daniels added to the lead with a 36-yard touchdown run on the first play following a Yarmouth fumble.

Yarmouth finally got on the board on its next possession, as Noah Eckersley-Ray threw a 69-yard scoring pass to Caden Middleton.

Chisari, though, returned the kickoff 84 yards to complete the scoring for the Raiders.

Eckersley-Ray threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Middleton for the final touchdown. The score was set up by a 28-yard punt return by Remi Leblanc.

“We need to grow from this,” Veilleux said. “We’re a young team and we can learn from something like this

“We’ll make some changes and we’ll move on.”
