Boston College-bound star Christian Zamor saw double coverage in the passing game.
“It was quiet night offensively for Christian, but teams are starting to double-cover him, which is fine,” said, Everett head football coach Justin Flores. “He had a great game on defense, but we’re still going to get him the ball on offense a little bit more, even though teams are going to double-cover him.”
Placekicker Adoni Santos booted five PATs while Luca Da Silva had the final PAT of the game.
Coach Justin Flores rested his starters in the second half.
“We were able to jump out quickly and get our reserves some playing time, which is good to see,” said Flores.
Everett is ranked seventh in the Boston Globe Top 20 Poll. The Tide are currently No. 16 in the Division 1 Power Rankings.
Everett hosts Medford (3-2, 2-1 GBL) Friday at 6 p.m. The Mustangs defeated Somerville, 20-0, last Thursday night.
