Mercury Roundup: Hill School football ends season with win

It was the happy conclusion to a season that was anything but.

The Hill School football team was oh-for-2019 headed into Saturday’s game with archrival Lawrenceville School. But it got redemption by rolling to a 49-19 victory in their Mid-Atlantic Prep League finale in New Jersey.

The Hill (1-7) overcame two Lawrenceville leads in the second quarter, including an early 13-0 hole, to prevail over the Larries for a second straight year. Will Lyman caught a 32-yard scoring pass with 4:32 left in the half for a 24-19 lead that was not topped the rest of the way.

Zayid Aziz had pairs of passing and rushing touchdowns on the afternoon. Michael Jamerson had an 80-yard TD run and two interceptions — one of them a “pick six” — and Gernard Finney capped the day’s scoring with a long run for the Hill’s final TD.
