SHREWSBURY – The Crimson Tide have once again found the recipe for their winning ways.

In taking down Central Mass. powerhouse Saint John’s (Shrewsbury), 32-27, Everett got its first win streak of the season started.

Knotted in a back-and-forth battle that went down- to-the-wire, the Tide (2-1) trailed multiple times in the fourth quarter but never once let up, scoring twice in the final six minutes of the game to emerge the victor.

The Crimson Tide flexed their collective muscle in dispatching Xaverian High School, 27-21, at Everett Veterans Stadium Friday.

The rebound victory comes after the team’s most lopsided loss in over three decades, a 42-12 thumping at the hands of Central High School to open the season.

How the Crimson Tide responded to the disheartening loss is proof this team, albeit a young one, still possesses a championship mettle that has come to define what it means to wear Everett Crimson.

“It was like night and day,” said Everett coach Theluxon Pierre of his team’s response after losing in a big way in the season-opener to turning things around against longtime rival Xaverian.

Both teams were fighting to stave-off a daunting 0-2 start to the season.

Everett High School’s football season got started on a somber note, with junior Egan Gouveia being carted off via ambulance after sustaining an injury while colliding with a teammate in the games opening kickoff.

The Crimson Tide went on to play a lackluster game, losing 42-12 to Central High School in their first opening game loss in several years.

Even with one of Massachusetts’ top teams losing in surprising fashion, the focus throughout and after the contest was on Gouveia’s status.

“Our prayers our with Egan,” said Everett coach Theluxon Pierre to the Boston Globe following the game. “We got word that he’s doing OK, so that’s the most important thing tonight,” said Pierre, who stood beside his junior linebacker until ambulances were able to immobilize his back and neck and move him from the field.

It’s September again and that means just one thing for the City of Everett: High School Football is back. In 2018, the Crimson Tide dominated the regular-season and entered the playoffs undefeated, but a tough, 23-20, semifinal loss to Central Catholic cut short a phenomenal first season for head coach Theluxon Pierre.

In the playoff loss, Coach Pierre and his staff felt the referees altered the outcome of the game that ended their undefeated season, calling a holding penalty away from the ball on what would have been a game-winning 60-yard touchdown pass.

This year, with the playoff loss in the rearview, Coach Pierre and the Tide are on a mission to prove they are still the number one team in Massachusetts
