Gabe DeSouza of North Andover had a pretty big weekend helping his team in all three phases of the game as they upset Tewksbury by a score of 35-16. Watching his film from that game and seeing how athletic he is one has to wonder how good are the skill players at Everett if DeSouza was largely used as a kicker for the state champions last season?
Speaking of Everett, six different players scored touchdowns for them in their big win at St. John’s Prep. If Everett can win out in the very tough Division 1 North playoff bracket a Super Bowl showdown with BC High might be in the cards.
Speaking of BC High, they traveled to New Jersey and beat Hudson Catholic 30-14. Xaverian Brothers traveled to New York and lost to Archbishop Stepinac which is one of the best teams in that state.
Apparently there is a big game between King Philip and Mansfield this Thursday night at 7:00 PM. Keep an eye on playmakers Shane Frommer for King Philip and Hunter Ferreira for Mansfield.
Lawrence Academy newcomers all contributed in their win over BB&N with Tony Muse returning the opening kickoff for a touchdown, Spencer Aronson scoring on a pick six and Justin Barron catching a touchdown pass.
Catholic Memorial finally got a win as they went on the road and beat a good Brockton team.
Sal Frelick gets most of the headlines for Lexington’s prolific offense but he gets a lot of support from Ben Quint and Anthony Bianchi.
One of the bigger surprises of the weekend was Governor’s Academy going on the road and shutting down the Brooks School offense in a 23-7 win.
UMass and Boston College both played on the road in hostile venues and both teams were competitive. UMass ultimately fell to Tennessee and is now 0-5 and BC lost to Clemson to move to 1-3 on the season.
Best game of the week had to be the thriller between St. Sebastian’s and Milton Academy as both teams had late chances to win the game with Milton Academy holding on for a 21-19 overtime win.
