East Boston and South Boston meet again on Thanksgiving Day

By John Lynds

The 99th clash between these two rivals take place on Thanksgiving morning at 9:30 a.m. at venerable White Stadium.  East Boston, led by John Parziale (eighth season) is 5-4.  South Boston, led by first year coach Germain Sattiewhite is 3-6.

The Jets began the season beating New Mission and West Roxbury and then lost the next four.  The 2-4 record put them in the non-playoff contending category in mid October.  However, the Jets have since soared, with three straight wins over Mystic Valley, Chelsea and Minuteman.

The South Boston Knights are a much improved team this season with more numbers on the roster and a new coach.  The Knights began the season with a shut-out win over Atlantis Charter by a score of 36-0.  Then came three straight losses to Charlestown, English and New Mission and two wins over Burke and Madison Park.  With a record of 3-3 in mid October, the Knights were designated a play-off contending team and in a quarterfinal round on Oct. 27, lost to Cathedral 52-0.

Both teams value the Thanksgiving Day game that began in November, 1903.  South Boston last won the game in 2008 by a score of 34-6.  Last year, the Jets won for the eighth year in a row by a score of 59-12.  Overall, East Boston leads the series at 51-42-6.   All are welcome to come out and cheer on both teams on Thanksgiving morning.  A special commemoration for the 100th game is planned for the Thanksgiving Day game next year.
