The Everett High School football team continued its march through the Greater Boston League with another dominating victory, 41-0, over Medford in the Homecoming game Friday night at Everett Veterans Memorial Stadium.
The Crimson Tide (6-0) can claim an undisputed GBL title with a win over Malden Thursday (6 p.m.) at Macdonald Stadium in Malden. The MIAA playoffs will start next weekend, with Everett looking to make a run to the Division 1 state title.
Coach Rob DiLoreto’s contingent scored 27 unanswered points in the first quarter. Boston College-bound senior Ismael Zamor rushed for a three-yard touchdown on Everett’s opening possession. Senior running back JC Clerveaux scored the first of his two touchdowns on a 13-yard run before adding a 60-yard run later in the quarter. Junior Cam Mohamed had a 10-yard run for a touchdown.
The Everett defense made some noteworthy defensive plays to account for the other touchdowns. Defensive Lineman Donovan Gaskins returned a fumble three yards for a touchdown. Senior defensive back Ramar Robinson completed Everett’s scoring with a 101-yard return of a fumble.
“It was great to have Donovan and Ramar make those defensive plays and score touchdowns,” said Coach DiLoreto.
Talented sophomore placekicker Adoni Santos, who could be a difference-maker in the playoffs, was 5-of-6 on PATs.
Coach DiLoreto felt the Homecoming festivities energized his team. “The atmosphere was very positive, and it created a lot of energy and excitement in our team, and I was very happy about that.” said DiLoreto. “We play at Malden and then we’ll find out sometime this weekend about the playoff schedule.”
