Football Patriots crush Bulldogs to even record

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  It looks as if the Revere High School football team has found its way after getting off to a rough start this season. The Patriots have outscored the opposition 109-22 over the last 10 quarters and evened their record at 2-2 by crushing Greater Boston League foe Lynn English, 47-0, last Friday night at Harry Della Russo Stadium.

  Since kicking off 2022 by being outscored 68-0 through its first six quarters of football (including a 40-0 loss at Peabody in the season opener), Revere has turned things around and is now preparing for another challenge this week. The Patriots travel to neighboring Everett to take on the always-potent Crimson Tide.

  Perennial powerhouse and state title contender Everett is off to a 3-1 start and has dominated the Greater Boston League (GBL) for years. A win by Revere this Friday would be a monumental accomplishment and would definitely put the Patriots in position for a Division 3 playoff spot.

  It will be a major challenge but Patriots head coach Lou Cicatelli is confident his squad has turned the corner and has the ability to pull off the upset.  He told the press this week that he thinks the Patriots match up well against the Tide and have an excellent shot.

  This Friday’s affair is a scheduled 6 p.m. kickoff at Memorial Stadium in Everett.

In last Friday’s romp over English, quarterback Carlos Rizo ran for a touchdown and threw for two others. Both of those scoring passes went to receiver Domenic Boudreau. Rizo threw for over 100 yards.

Running back Maykin Gonzalez rushed for two touchdowns and Kevin McNamara added another via the run. The Revere offense has suddenly sprung to life after being blanked through the season’s opening 72 minutes.

The Patriots outscored Plymouth South, 20-7, in the second half of their week-two loss to the Panthers, then carried the momentum into the following week’s 42-15 pounding of GBL opponent Medford.

Cicatelli praised the performance of the special teams and the defense against English. He cited the efforts of kicker Felipe Maia and defensive players Jason Shosho, Chris Cassidy, Abbas Attoui and Kamal Majid. Shosho was credited with 11 tackles to go along with a couple of sacks against English.
