David Choate was a one-man wrecking crew for Dracut High, as the Middies evened their record at 3-3 on the season with a convincing 27-6 win over North Andover.
Choate rumbled for 245 yards and three touchdowns on 26 carries. He had touchdown runs of 65, 66 and 1 yards. For the game, the Dracut offense rolled up 362 yards of offense, all on the ground.
The Middies, who seem to be getting stronger with each game, raced out to a 20-6 halftime lead and were never threatened.
Choate got things started with a 55-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The kick was blocked and the Middies had to settle for a 6-0 lead.
Quarterback Mike Levasseur continued his outstanding season with a 55-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Kyle Durkin added the PAT to make it 13-0. Levasseur finished with 117 yards on 22 carries.
North Andover (2-4) was able to cut the deficit to 13-6 but that was as close as they could get. Choate ripped off a 66-yard TD run and the Middies took a 20-6 lead into halftime.
That lead held into the fourth quarter, when Choate plowed in from a yard out to account for the final score.
Dracut has a huge game coming up Friday night, at home against Concord-Carlisle. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m.
