Tide extends winning streak to four after taking down visiting Revere

With the playoffs looming in November, Everett still looks to improve in all three phases of the game

  The Everett Crimson Tide football team (4-1) continues to cruise past opponents since its opening night loss to Xaverian, one of the top-ranked teams in Division 1. Their most recent win was against Greater Boston League rival Revere (2-3) last Friday night at home, 41-13. They outscored the Patriots, 28-0 after the visitors were credited with the first score of the game.

  Everett’s Jayden Prophete got the offense going with a 16-yard touchdown run. Adoni Santos then kicked the extra point to tie up the proceedings. Quarterback Karmarri Ellerbe followed up that score to put his teammates ahead for good with an explosive 45-yard dash to the endzone in the second quarter.

  Ellerbe then hooked up with Christian Zamor for an 18-yard scoring strike, before he called his own number once again, scooting the final 22-yards for the final six points of the first half. Santos added the extra point after the second and third score to help account for the 28-7 advantage.

  The Everett defense rose up to start the second half, when Kevin Ruiz intercepted a pass and ran it back 60-yards to the house for six more points, followed by another Santos boot through the uprights.

  The Patriots put another touchdown on the scoreboard late in the third quarter, but it was Everett that accounted for the final two scores of the game.

  Zamor came through with his second touchdown of the game after negotiating the final 22-yards for six points. Santos had another successful extra point boot.

  Everett coach Rob DiLoreto thought the game was played at a much closer pace. “Although the score became lopsided, this game was much closer than the final score would indicate,” he said. “The Revere team played very hard, and they should be proud of their effort. But our players made some very athletic plays that led to some points, but our overall discipline and performance needs to improve.”

  DiLoreto credits the play of the defensive linemen and linebackers for last Friday night’s win, specifically Kevin Ruiz, who had an interception return for a touchdown. “That was a huge play in this game,” DiLoreto said.

  Adian Duclos, Ralph Pierre and Shane McKenzie also played solid games up front on defense, according to the veteran Everett coach.

  The Tide had one less day to prepare for this week’s game against host Medford. They were scheduled to play the Mustangs on Thursday, Oct. 13, after press deadline.

  “We need to take advantage of every rep on the practice field to clean up areas that need improvement, while advancing in the areas that are going well,” said DiLoreto. “Our team needs to improve in all three phases of the game in this short week.

  The Mustangs are coming off a big win against Somerville, 39-12, and DiLoreto knows his club needs to play clean, hard football to keep the winning streak going, because he also knows Medford coach John Curley will have his team ready.
