Boys basketball — With a 56-48 win over Snowden in the BABC MLK Classic on Monday, the boys improved to 8-2 overall. They hit the hardwood again at EHS Wednesday (Jan.22 @7pm) against 9-1 Chelsea High School. Look for the height advantage of the Crimson Tide to help propel them past a skillful but undersized Red Devils squad. With two more wins, EHS will qualify for the division 1 tournament.

They’ll get the chance to clinch Thursday (Jan.23 @6:30pm) at Haverhill High School.
Hockey — The Crimson Tide will hit the ice at Nashoba Valley Saturday (Jan.25 @11:50am).
