The top-ranked Crimson Tide’s convincing, 41-14, win over Andover in the MIAA North Division 1 quarterfinals moves them one step closer to the ultimate goal: a third consecutive state title.
A meeting with Central Catholic (6-2) at Everett Stadium awaits on Friday, November 2 at 7PM. The winner will earn a chance to play for the north sectional championship and the right to represent the north section in the state tournament.
Powering the Crimson Tide (8-0) offensive onslaught was running back Isaac Seide, who ran for 145 yards and two touchdowns (while catching two passes for 31 yards and a TD), and quarterback Duke Doherty, who hurled three first-half TD passes to pace the Tide in the win.
The mayor’s notion about “scare tactics” being used to cause an uprising among parents and teachers in the school system as reported in last week’s Independent shows the extent to which the mayor can attempt to manipulate some of the news.
The mayor needed to get all this complaining off his chest, to let everyone know (those who aren’t his allies) how he is feeling.
It was mostly about $2.5 million that he is hesitating to allow the School Department to have even though it is the School Department’s funding gotten by Senator Sal DiDomenico.
The “crime” of not giving the funding to the schools is interpreted by the mayor as the high road – that is – the money shouldn’t be given to the schools and those complaining are traitors to the mayor’s brand of genius.
