Newton North girls lacrosse defeats Brookline in wet and windy season opener
The cold, wet, and windy weather at Dickenson Field could not slow down the Newton North girls lacrosse team Tuesday afternoon. The Tigers scored 14 first-half goals to defeat the Brookline Warriors 17-5, in both team’s season opener. Newton North was led offensively by freshman Amelia Williams, who scored four goals in the evening and junior Hannah McGoldnick who tallied five. Junior Captain Michela Salvucci added three goals of her own, including the Tigers' fifth goal of the game early in the first half. “Our offense was good tonight,” said Salvucci. “We had good draw control and good transitions. I think there’s still a lot to improve upon, but I think for right now we had a really solid game.” Despite the loss, the first five minutes …

The Tigers took out the visiting Warriors at home.
Newton North dug its claws in defensively in the second half to pull away from Bay State Conference foe Brookline in a 62-50 home victory on Friday night. The Warriors were held to 18 points in the final two quarters due to numerous defensive looks from the Tigers, including an impenetrable zone defense that forced the Warriors into a two-for-eight finish from behind the three-point line. “Our guys really locked them up and played some great defense in the second half,” said Tigers’ head coach Paul Connolly. “That’s been the key to our success this year.” Michael Thorpe was four-for-eight from beyond the arc on his way to a game-high 24 points, while freshman big man Aaron Falzon established just enough of a presence on the block to …

Newton North won the Turkey Day game 41-12.
As the Brookline football team limped to the finish line of a trying season, Newton North's senior-laden squad rode the legs of Ben Clark to a 41-12 Thanksgiving Day win. Feeding off of the emotion of its home crowd, Newton North carved through the Brookline defense with an impressive running attack. Tiger tailback Isiah Penn served notice early on to the Warrior defense that it would be a long day and put Newton North (5-6) up 7-0 on a 30-yard touchdown run with 9:15 in the first quarter. The Warriors responded to the Tiger scoring drive with one of their own by featuring talented freshman Nick Scott in the wildcat formation. Scott (113 yards rushing) completed a 43-yard pass to Gavan D'Amore and ran for 34 yards of his own, including a 2…
The 26th annual Newton & Brookline Rotary Clubs' Thanksgiving Football Luncheon brought together players, coaches and local officials from the rival towns.
It has existed in Newton and Brookline longer than anyone involved; the 116-year Thanksgiving Day matchup between the rival communities is as much as a staple as pumpkin pie at the end of a Turkey Day meal. As they have for more than a quarter century, members of the Brookline and Newton Rotary Clubs met for a friendly luncheon Tuesday to shake hands, share stories and hand off the annual Rotary Club trophy. The trophy, which was presented to Brookline, is given each year to the winners of the previous year's Thanksgiving game. The event, which was held at Brae Burn Country Club, featured keynote speaker David Ginsberg, a 1987 graduate of Brookline High and jiujitsu master. Representing the Tigers side of the room were …

The Tigers will take on longtime rival Brookline in their annual Thanksgiving Day game.
Before the Newton North football team can sit down and enjoy a Thanksgiving feast, they will have one thing on their mind: beating Brookline. The history dates back over 100 years in the battle between the long-time rivals, and every year Peter Capodilupo makes it a point of emphasis to end the season with a bang against their neighbors to the East. "You can have a losing season, but if you win the Brookline game it's the last thing you remember," said the coach. "I always say that endings are the most important things about a lot of things. For the seniors who have been playing since Pop Warner it's the last time they will play. This game is so important." The game will take place at 10 a.m. tomorrow in the new Dickinson Stadium at …

On Thanksgiving, Newton North renews their rivalry with Brookline--but the day is about more than just what happens on the field.
Thanksgiving is the best of our American traditions; it marks the beginning of the holiday season and lacks much of the crass commercialism of Christmas. Nobody is disappointed by another gift after shelling out hundreds of dollars for presents. Nobody is disappointed with a huge feast. There is no keeping up with the neighbor's lighting display, no forced Yankee Swaps and vapid corporate parties. There is only food, family and, in every city and town across the country, high school football. These are the biggest football games of the year and a time for renewing centuries old rivals as well as a time to come together and celebrate shared heritage. The town of Newton is fortunate enough to experience two such Thanksgiving games each year…

The Tigers had an impressive run that started with a No. 19 seeding position.
They won just three times last year. They have a first-year head coach, and entered the MIAA North Sectional Tournament seeded 19th. These aren't the typical ingredients of a championship-caliber team. But yesterday at Manning Field in Lynn, the Newton North soccer team bucked the odds and captured the Division 1 North Sectional crown 2-1 (5-4, PK's) over Bay State Carey division rivals Brookline High, thanks in large part to the stellar bend-but-don't-break play of their back-line. "You can't ask for more out of your first year," said Newton North head coach Roy Dow. "I don't know how else to describe it ... if you've got a team that can fight for each other and works hard, anything is possible." The Tigers end their season at 12-5-6, …
