The East Boston High School is halfway through its 2012 fall sports season with some thrilling victories and agonizing defeats.
First up, the football team has seen better days since winning the Boston North Title last year. The Jets are 2-3 on the season recently losing to West Roxbury 22-6 last week. However, big wins against rival Charlestown and O’Bryant have kept the teams moral up. Next the football team will face Austin Prep at home. With six more games left in the season, the Jets have a good chance to turn around a 2-3 record to an 8-3 season.
Boys Soccer has been on a roll this season winning 10 games and losing only two. The Jets soccer team has dominated the league shutting out seven teams on their way to a winning season. Their biggest victory came against Charlestown when they beat the Townies 9-0.
The team has only fallen to Somerville and Madison Park and those two games where also the only two games this season that the Jets failed to score a goal.
The girls soccer team has also faired well this season with a 7-4-1 record. Their last game against Latin Academy resulted in a 0-0. However, six of their seven wins have all resulted in shut outs of the opposing team. Their largest margin of victory this season came against English where the girls annihilated English 8-0.
Eastie’s volleyball team is also trying to turn around a shaky season. Right now the Jets are 5-6 on the season and beat Brighton 3-2 last week. After winning their first three games it looked as though the Jets would dominate. However, beginning with a 3-0 loss to Latin Academy the Jets went on a 5-game losing streak. The streak ended when the Jets beat Charlestown 3-2.
The Jets where then shut out 3-0 by Madison Park but quickly rebounded to beat Brighton last week. The Jets will have a rematch against Latin Academy this week—hoping to even their record to 6-6.
With the exception of the J.E. Burke, the Jets have lost to four of their next five opponents so the pressure is on.
