The Everett High School boys soccer team is 6-6-4 on the season and needs two points in its final two games to secure a spot in the MIAA Div. 1 State Tournament. One win or two ties (at least) will get the job done for the Crimson Tide, who have had a very strong season in their second year as a member of the competitive Northeastern Conference. EHS played at Salem on Wednesday night, and it is scheduled to conclude the regular season on Friday at Chelsea. Best of luck to coach Oswaldo Constanza and the Crimson Tide as they make a push for the playoffs.
Everett High is undefeated, winners of 25 straight games, and owners of the No. 1 seed in the Div. 1 North playoff bracket. That means Crimson Tide fans can stand in unison and recite the gratifying, if clichéd, affirmation: “The Road to Gillette Goes Through Veterans Memorial Stadium.”
The postseason bracket was released over the weekend, and once all the
numbers were crunched and the points added up, Everett ended up where it belongs at the top. First- year head coach Theluxon Pierre and the Crimson Tide will start chasing the program’s third consecutive Div. 1 state title Friday night (Oct. 26) at home vs. No. 8 Andover in the North quarter finals. If Everett dispatches Andover, it will be back at home on Friday, Nov. 2 to face either Lexington or Catholic Central. Win that, and EHS will host the sectional title game on Nov. 9. If you’re a big dreamer and don’t view thinking ahead as a jinx, the Div. 1 Super Bowl is the first Saturday of December at Gillette.
GIOVE, Lawrence T. of Everett, formerly of the West End, entered into eternal rest on Monday, October 15, 2018 in the Chelsea Soldiers’ Home after being in failing health. He was 93 years old.
Born in Boston, Larry lived in Everett for many years. He worked for many years as a truck driver for Local 25 delivering ironically for Sears, Roebuck & Company, which announced the same night as his passing, the closing of many, if not all, of their stores.
