Leader Herald Staff Report

Everett is coming off its first appearance ever in the MIAA playoff consolation round, a blowout 48-14 win at Acton-Boxborough. The Crimson Tide, who were upset by Central Catholic, 23-20, in the Div. 1 North semifinals, were led by Michigan commit Mike Sainristil, who caught three passes for 183 yards and three TDs. Eli Auguste caught a 22-yard TD pass and returned an interception 60 yards for a score.

Everett qualified for the post-season for the 18th consecutive year, compiling a 34-8 post-season record in that span and 36-10 overall postseason record since 1996 (24-5 playoffs, 12-5 state final/Super Bowl). The Crimson Tide have won nine of their last 10 postseason games.
