EVERETT – 37
CENTRAL CATHOLIC – 39
By Lorenzo Recupero
Over the last five years, no one has beaten Everett more than the Central Catholic Raiders.
In Saturday’s MIAA Division 1 North Semifinals, C-C made sure it remained that way, topping the Tide, 39-37, in overtime.
Since winning back-to-back titles in 2016 & 2017, C-C has been the largest thorn in Everett’s side, keeping them from a shot at a three-peat while knocking them out the playoffs the last two years in a row.
In those two Everett-ousting wins by C-C (8-1), three and two points were the margin of victory.
Last year’s difference was a last-second field goal and this time around a 2-point conversion rush in overtime.
The back-and-forth slugfest between the two division 1 powerhouses Saturday at Lawrence was the thriller all knew it would be, featuring several lead changes, big-time plays, and even a little dusting of referee decisions that some in attendance would say altered the outcome of the game including a second half snafu that gifted C-C an extra down that eventually lead to a tie-breaking touchdown.
