Revere Hosts Winthrop on Thanksgiving Morning
Revere will be facing a strong Winthrop team that qualified for the Division 6 playoffs. The Vikings (5-5) defeated South Hadley, 35-0, in their first-round game, but fell to Rockland, 37-34 in the quarterfinals.
“We’re getting ready for Winthrop,” said Coach Cicatelli. “It’s going to be a good football game. They’re very good.”
The two teams share one common opponent, Peabody.
The Tanners defeated Revere, 28-7, in the season opener, and Winthrop, 35-21, on Oct. 1. Peabody (6-5) won the NEC South Division title but did not qualify for the state playoffs.
Revere has an opportunity to finish its season with an 8-2 record.
“I think going 8-2 would say a lot about our program and our seniors, and everything we tried to achieve this year,” said Coach Cicatelli. “I think it will open some eyes, and I think the playoff system should look at a team that went 8-2 and didn’t get a playoff berth.”
