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.
