With the 42-6 win over rival Malden, the Crimson Tide are one win away from capturing the Greater Boston League Title and a guaranteed spot in the MIAA postseason.

In order to do so, they’ll have to come up big against another GBL rival in the stout Lynn Classical Rams.

Both squads are meeting at the height of their competitive seasons, too, with the Rams (5-1) on a 4-game win streak and the Crimson Tide (6-1) riding a 6-game win streak into the decisive matchup.

To be victorious against Lynn Classical, the Tide will need their strong defensive play from the win over Malden to carry over.

The Rams average 28 points per game, making them one of the best scoring teams the Tide have matched up with thus far.

Crimson Tide Coach Robert DiLoreto is getting the team ready for what should be a competitive game.

“We are preparing hard for Lynn Classical. They are a team that is well-coached, they play fast, physical and disciplined football,” said DiLoreto. “Our team will need to play our very best football on Friday night in all three phases of the game,” he said.

The Crimson Tide jumped on visiting Somerville early in their home-opener Friday, rushing the ball with ease en route to a thorough 38-6 Greater Boston League victory.

Powered by five rushing touchdowns, two from senior running back J.C. Clerveaux, including a thrilling 49-yard score in the first half, the Tide (2-0) looked sharp offensively.

With recent approval from the Everett Board of Health, sports teams at Everett High School will be allowed to compete for the first time in the 2020-2021 school year.

The highly anticipated decision from the Everett BOH comes weeks after much delegation and planning on behalf of the school, city, and state administrators on how best to safely conduct school sports during the ongoing pandemic.

Because Everett’s been deemed a red zone by the state due to higher Coronavirus infection rates here, none of the fall or winter sports teams at Everett High School have been able to gather or practice in any formal way.

Since the pandemic started closing schools last March, coaches and players from each respective sport have been closed-off from any in-person communication, making the recent developments to continue school sports in Everett this season a relief to those involved.

Plan for high school sports to kick off season February 1

Needs approval of city board of health, would give athletes a chance to play short seasons


By LORENZO RECUPERO

Pending approval from the City of Everett’s Board of Health (BOH), team sports play at Everett High School is scheduled to resume Monday, February 1.

Should the City’s BOH approve the winter schedule, according to the Everett Public Schools, the following sports teams will move forward with a modified season in 2021.

If the vote passes, boys/girls basketball along with coed ice hockey will begin tryouts and a preseason Monday, February 1. The regular season for both sports would start on March 1 and run through April 10.

The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) will not be conducting any state-wide tournaments, but the Greater Boston League (GBL) is exploring a division only tournament to wrap up the year.

Along with Everett High School, the GBL currently consists of teams from Malden, Medford, Revere, and Somerville. If a season and subsequent inter-division tournament are approved, these teams would also match up with Lynn Classical, Lynn English, and Chelsea High School to help bolster the competition.
