The Medford High School football team opened up a new season under a different playoff system with a hard-fought 12-8 win over North Quincy. While Medford will continue to play its Greater Boston League rivals Cambridge, Everett, Somerville, and Malden, the Mustangs will also compete against not-so-close teams such as North Quincy, Medfield, and potentially some others.
Friday night’s win was the first for Medford in two seasons. Head Coach Jason Nascimento praised his team’s effort and said the Mustangs will continue to work hard to improve this season.
“It was a fantastic win for the kids and the program,” said Coach Nascimento. “A lot of the kids stepped up and we took advantage of the mistakes that were made by North Quincy…The kids played with a ton of passion and I was very happy to see a great crowd in the stands. The band and cheerleaders did a fantastic job keeping the crowd in the game.”
“The win was great but we can’t get complacent, we still have a ton of football left to play,” said Coach Nascimento.
Medford hosts Revere on Friday, September 13 at 7PM at Hormel Stadium.
