The Crimson Tide are rolling at the right time.

The Tide(5-1) aced their last two wins, over winless Malden and Medford, giving up just 6 points combined.

Things shouldn’t get much tougher when the 1-5 Somerville Highlanders come to town this week.

Bits and Pieces

To my knowledge, there are no Kurds living in Everett.

Kurds as nearly everyone must know by now, were just deserted by the United States over in Syria where the liberal press would have you believe the world is coming to an end because we deserted them.

Fact of the matter is that every president since Franklin Roosevelt has deserted the Kurds or used them or deserted them after using them.

It is the Turks the world always supports.

It is the Turks, who slaughtered the Armenians, millions of them, who the world cowers in front of, always.

The Turks don’t like the Kurds because the Kurds live in an autonomous region just to the South of the Turkish border.

The Turks claim the Kurds are terrorists.

The Kurds claim the Turks want to do a good old fashioned Turkish genocide on them.

They are probably right about this.

The world, not just the United States, has deserted the Kurds, again and again.

The Crimson Tide improved to 4-1 with last week’s 42-0 drubbing of winless Medford High School.

Quarterback Duke Doherty continued to impress, tying his season-high with four touchdowns (1 rushing, 3 passing) in the shutout.

With the win streak now at four games, head coach Theluxon Pierre still isn’t ready to concede that his team is hitting its stride, even if they’re light years ahead of where they were when they dropped the ball in the season opener and scored just 12 points.

“I don’t think [we’re hitting our stride], we just aren’t facing the caliber teams that we did in the beginning of our season,” said Pierre. “I have respect for how these young men have responded so far, but we still have a long way to go,” he said.

EHS Shakes Off Playoff Loss By Rattling A-B; Team Improves to 9-1

Everett Leader Staff Report

At first consideration, Everett fans had a lot to feel sorry about last Friday.

For the first time since the MIAA expanded its playoff format in 2013, the Crimson Tide failed to reach at least the Div. 1 North final.

After their loss to Central Catholic in the previous week’s North semifinals, the Tide were unceremoniously but unavoidably dumped onto the MIAA’s “Non-Playoff Schedule,” which is a little like being forced into a staycation when you had your heart set on jetting to the Caribbean.

CRIMSON TIDE NOTEBOOK

BACK AT HOME — The Crimson Tide will conclude the regular-season with back-to-back games inside the friendly environs of Veterans’ Memorial Stadium. Medford comes to town this Friday, while Malden is in town next Friday night (Oct. 19). Kickoff is 7 p.m. for both games.

Medford is 1-4, with its win coming over Somerville. Two of the Mustangs’ losses have been close ones — 28-20 to Winthrop and 27-21 to Revere.

Malden is undergoing a major rebuilding under first-year head coach Steve Freker. The Golden Tornadoes are 0-5 and haven’t scored more than 8 points in any of their five games. They are coming off a 35-0 shutout loss to Marblehead.
