Improve to 2-0, Lynn English up next


The Crimson Tide jumped on visiting Somerville early in their home-opener Friday, rushing the ball with ease en route to a thorough 38-6 Greater Boston League victory.

Powered by five rushing touchdowns, two from senior running back J.C. Clerveaux, including a thrilling 49-yard score in the first half, the Tide (2-0) looked sharp offensively.

With two passing touchdowns leading the way in the team’s first win, and a stable of runners leading the way in their triumph over Somerville, the Tide showcased an ability to be an all-around offense, able to run and pass effectively to pick up a W.

Dual-threat Brian Gibbs, a senior player for the Tide who can catch and run, also pitched in toward the offense’s success, rushing for two TDs of his own, including a 24-yard scamper.

So far, with the toppling of Somerville, EHS stands atop the GBL and owns a win over perennial playoff contender Xaverian.

The Tide will move on to an away game at Lynn English at 6 p.m. on Friday, September 24.
