BC HIGH THIS WEEK — Up next for Everett is a Friday-night trip down the Southeast Expressway to BC High, where the Tide will play on the road for the fourth time in five games. The Eagles handed Brockton its first loss of the season Friday night at Marciano Stadium. With the 21-13 victory, BC evened its record at 2-2. The Eagles have struggled at times on offense, scoring just seven points in a loss to Mans eld and getting shutout by Tewksbury on Sept. 21.
If you’re growing tired of road games, rest easy. EHS is home on Oct. 12 (Medford) and Oct. 19 (Malden). The Crimson Tide are also in position to play as many as three consecutive home playoff games the weekends of Oct. 29, Nov. 2 and Nov. 9.
FRIENDLY FOE — Lawrence is rebuilding under rst-year head coach Rhandy Audate, an Everett High School graduate who played college football at Merrimack College. Audate’s brother, Reynaldi, is an assistant for EHS first-year head coach Theluxon Pierre.
LESS THAN FULL STRENGTH — Running back Isaac Seide and wide receiver/defensive back Robbie Riobe were inactive, which forced some signifcant changes to Everett’s starting offense and the game plan.
Without Seide’s services, the Tide turned to Jaden Mahabir, who carried a season-high 14 times for 57 yards. Mike Sainristil also had a season-high in carries (7 for 72 yards). Some of Riobe’s snaps at WR went to freshman Ismael Zamor, who caught two passes for 46 yards and a touchdown.
MASCO A NO GO — An unusual situation unfolded last week with Everett’s Thanksgiving opponent, Masconomet. The Chieftains, in a statement released to the press on Wednesday, announced they were forfeiting their Cape Ann League road game at Pentucket on Saturday (Sept. 29). The reason was identi ed as “a student discipline matter.” It was described as a “coach’s decision fully supported by the school administration.” Masconomet is 2-1 on the season and has been a welcomed holiday addition to Everett’s schedule over the past two years. EHS travels to Masco this year.
