The hangover from the overtime playoff-ousting loss to Central Catholic last week must still be on the minds of the players and coaches that felt they were robbed of yet another playoff-advancing win for the second consecutive year.
As a result, for the first time since 2015, when they finished the year 6-6 overall, the Crimson Tide (7- 3) are in the midst of a two-game slide after dropping Friday’s playoff consolation game to Andover, 20-16.
The 16 points scored in the loss to Andover is the second lowest point total the team has put out all 2019.
Their lowest output was in week 1, when the Tide suffered its worst loss (42-12) in decades.
The good news? The team would have had 13 days to regroup ahead their season finale Thanksgiving Day against Masconomet Regional (7-4).
The Tide gobbled-up Masco 32-0 during last season’s Turkey Day showdown, but Masco also had a losing record (4-6) then, meaning this year’s matchup may not be won so easily.
To catch the Tide’s final game this year and see if they can end the season in a winning way, head down to Veterans Memorial Stadium at 10AM on Thursday, November 28.
