Hurricane Sandy may have gotten on all of the attention over the past weekend, but the Everett Crimson Tide did its best impersonation of a natural disaster last Friday night, piling up 35 unanswered points in the Tides’ win over Medford in just the first half,m then cruised through the second half for an easy victory.
Everett Coach John DiBiaso was unavailable for comment on Monday, following the game, but truth be told there wasn’t much he could’ve added to the story told by the numbers in the game.
The Tide scored touchdowns on each of their first five possessions of the game, with junior quarterback Raheem Winguard throwing three touchdowns, one each to Jalen Felix for 25 yards, Jakarrie Washington for 28 yards and Joey White for 51 yards. On the three touchdown tosses alone Winguard amassed 104 yards.
Felix and Washington also each scored on running plays, Felix’s touchdown run covered 12 yards and Washington converted from one yard out.
Rounding out the scoring, Gilly DeSouza kicked extra points on all five scores.
Washington, Felix, White and DeSouza have been the main scorers for Everett all season. Washington has scored 16 times for the Tide and amassed 96 points in the process. Felix is second on the team in scoring, despite missing several games early in the season and has seven touchdowns and 44 points. White has chipped in with four touchdowns for 24 points and DeSouza, the surprise starting quarterback for the first three weeks of the season, has added 23 extra points and a field goal, good for 26 points on the season so far.
The hapless Mustangs remained winless after the loss last Friday and Everett now sets its sights on another winless GBL opponent, Somerville.
The Highlanders will visit Everett Memorial Stadium this Friday, November 2.
Despite Somerville’s record, Coach DiBiaso has spent most of the season driving home the importance of winning league games and Somerville presents another league opponent for the #2 ranked Everett team, if they are to reach their goals for the season.
“We tell them all the time, the most important games are league games, because your league record determines who plays in the postseason and that determines who gets to go to the super bowl,” DiBiaso said prior to the Medford game last week.
It would seem from the score of that game his team got the message. Now they have to apply the same effort to the game this week.
