The Revere High football team lost to Peabody, 35-0, in its season opener Friday night at Harry Della Russo Stadium
The Patriots were unable to contain the Tannersâ€™ high-powered offense that was led by quarterback Luke Maglione, who threw three touchdown passes. Peabodyâ€™s superb wide receiver, Eli Batista, caught two of the touchdown passes.
Dominic Scalesse, son of former Revere head football coach Mike Cella and grandson of the late Silvio Cella, was a perfect 5-of-5 on extra points.
â€œThey outplayed us in all facets,â€ said Revere head football Lou Cicatelli. â€œWe just have to regroup and hopefully weâ€™ll play better when we go to Plymouth this week.â€
Revere defensive end Ethan Romagos had nine tackles in the game. Felipe Maia punted the ball well.
Revere has a tough assignment on the road this week against Plymouth South, who defeated Silver Lake, 42-12, in its opener. Plymouthâ€™s outstanding, 6-foot, 205-pound running back, Casious Johnson, rushed for three touchdowns in the game.
Both Peabody (No. 17) and Plymouth South (No. 19) are ranked in this weekâ€™s Boston Globe Top 20 poll.
