Patriots rebound with shutout win over Highlanders, 39-0

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

  Doing what a well-coached squad will do, the Revere High School football team rebounded from a tough Greater Boston League (GBL) loss at Everett the previous week with a convincing 39-0 road rout over the Somerville Highlanders last Friday night at Dilboy Stadium. The victory evened the Patriots’ overall record at 3-3 through six games.

  Revere has perhaps its most important challenge of the season this Friday night at Harry Della Russo Stadium when it hosts the Lynn Classical Rams in a huge league showdown (scheduled 6 p.m. kickoff). Classical holds a 4-1 overall mark (3-0 in the GBL).

  The contest has major playoff implications. A win would likely guarantee a postseason berth for the Patriots, who are 3-1 in league play and would take sole possession of second place in the league if they are able to top the Rams.

  Revere has won convincingly in its three victories to date by outscoring the opposition, 128-15 with two shutouts.

  Sophomore running back Danny Hou’s memorable performance of three touchdowns and 185 offensive yards helped lead the Patriots past the winless Highlanders last Friday. Hou was also recognized as Player of the Week by the Boston Herald.

  Revere dominated on both sides of the ball as it has in all three of its wins this season. Along with Hou, Maykin Gonzalez returned an interception for a touchdown and scored once on offense while quarterback Carlos Rizo tossed two TD passes.

  This week, Pats Head Coach Lou Cicatelli acknowledged to the press his team’s all-around effort against Somerville and cited the individual performances of players Jason Shosho, Kamal Majid, Anthony Pham and Gonzalez.

  The Patriots would like to experience a repeat of last season’s competitive result against the Rams, only a different outcome when it comes to tourney seeding. Revere defeated Classical, 21-6, last fall to go to 6-2 overall at the time. But the Pats still did not receive a state tourney bid.
