After rallying from an early deficit to take a fourth quarter lead, the Tewksbury High football committed three late turnovers, helping Billerica to a 34-26 victory on Saturday at Doucette Field. “We did some things to get back in the game and then we did some things to let them back in it,” said Redmen head coach Brian Aylward. Junior running back Eddie Matovu provided a spark with two rushing touchdowns despite battling leg cramps throughout the afternoon. “He’s been a workhorse for us,” Aylward said of Matovu.

Tewksbury High hockey team shuts down Latin's high scoring offense.
For Tewksbury High hockey coach Derek Doherty, the recipe for stopping Boston Latin's high-powered offense on Sunday night was simple. Hit 'em early and often, and when they get back up, hit 'em again. "That's the game plan," Doherty said after his Redmen outmuscled the undefeated Latin Wolfpack and played them to a 1-1 tie at the Breakaway Ice Center. "You know if you play a physical game, guys aren't going to want to touch the puck. And if they don't want to touch the puck, they can't score goals." Latin, which came into the game with a 5-0 record, had scored 27 goals in its first five games, an average of over five per game. But the Redmen knocked the Wolfpack off the puck time and time again, refusing to let them get their offensive …
