December 7, 2019

Game Rewind: Abington used a punishing ground game led by halfback Will Klein and a dominant defense to beat Leicester 21-7. The win was head coach Jim Kelliher’s fifth super bowl title in his tenure at Abington. Here are three thoughts on the game. 1. Will Klein was a man among boys: Klein was as good as advertised.

December 7, 2019

It is a rematch of last year’s Division One Super Bowl, a game St. John’s dominated both on the ground and through the air en route to a 40-22 win.

December 7, 2019

When you break this game down, the first thing that jumps out at you is the amount of skill that will be on display. The quarterback match up between Springfield’s freshmen sensation William Watson and Duxbury dual threat quarterback Will Prouty is worth the price of admission alone.

Melrose has been dominant this season as the Red Raiders rolled through a tough schedule. As usual with any team coached by Tim Morris, Melrose can run the football. The Red Raiders will be without star running back Chris Cusolito. Cusolito scored 25 touchdowns this season but he hurt his ankle. It is a big blow for Melrose but they have other backs that are talented enough to step it…

Swampscott’s spread offense led by quarterback Graham Inzana will have its hands full against a big and physical Amherst team that wins games upfront. Swampscott is the more battle tested of the two teams. The Big Blue played a tough regular season schedule and they had a tough road to Gillette beating Holliston in the D5 sectional final.

He has plenty of reliable targets that he can the ball to, most notably Kevin Russell and Jake Latessa. Bishop Fenwick wants to run the football and they lean on a stout defense that plays physical.
