Over the last couple decades, Everett and the MIAA division 1 playoffs have become synonymous.
This season, nothing’s changed, as the Crimson Tide (6-1) enter the playoffs Friday against Acton- Boxborough (5-2) at Veterans Memorial Stadium (7PM kickoff).
High expectations always swirl around the team around this time and for good reason.
This year is no different. And it shouldn’t be.
The Tide are on a commanding roll, entering the playoffs in flat out juggernaut mode.
They’ve averaged just over 33 points per game and allowed just about 17 points per game defensively over the course of the year. In their last game of the regular season, the Tide posted a season-high 51 points against Somerville.
That decisive win is just the latest example of an ascending trend for the team. In its last three game stretch, they’ve averaged 43 points per game while giving up just 13 points in total.
Those numbers alone make for a very encouraging entrance to the playoffs.
