Late score lifts Classical over Patriots, 20-14

Student-athletes honored on Senior Night

  The Revere High School football team couldn’t hang on to a second-half lead and lost its composure a bit late in the fourth period of last Friday night’s key Greater Boston League (GBL) matchup against the Lynn Classical Rams at Harry Della Russo Stadium.

  A turnover on a kickoff and subsequent unsportsmanlike and facemask penalties by Revere helped the Rams take over the ball inside the Patriots five-yard line with the score tied 14-all in the waning minutes of the game. With just over three minutes remaining, Classical ended up scoring on a 13-yard pass from quarterback RJ Faessler to John Nasky, who had a big night for the visitors.

  That made it a 20-14 game in favor of the Rams and that’s how it ended. The Patriots dropped to 3-4 overall with the loss, which no doubt put a major dent in any hopes Revere had of receiving a postseason tournament berth this fall. The Patriots also fell to 3-2 in league play, two games behind second-place Classical (5-1 overall, 4-0 league).

  The Patriots owned a 14-6 advantage in the third quarter after running back Davi Baretto plowed into the end zone from three yards out with about six minutes left in the third. Receiver Sami Elasri set up the score when he hauled in a 29-yard pass from quarterback Carlos Rizo. Baretto then rushed for the two-point conversion which gave the hosts an eight-point cushion.

  Baretto’s TD broke a 6-6 tie at halftime. Classical drew first blood with a first-quarter score. But the Patriots responded when Rizo connected with Elasri on another huge play, this time a 59-yard touchdown. The extra-point kick was blocked and the teams went into the break even at six apiece.

  Revere had one last possession after Classical’s go-ahead TD late in the fourth but the Patriots’ offense was unable to mount anything and the Rams ran out the clock from there.

  Last Friday’s clash with the Rams was the first real close game the Patriots have been involved in all season. Coming into the contest, Revere’s three losses had been by a combined total of 83 points. At the same time, its three victories had been by a collective 111 points.

  The Patriots will try to even their record when they travel for a GBL game at Malden this Friday (scheduled 6 p.m. kickoff). The Golden Tornadoes (3-4) lost by a 22-6 count to Classical earlier this month, so it appears this Friday’s tilt could be another tight battle for Revere.
