The Newton North and Newton South football teams will face Brookline and Lincoln-Sudbury, respectively, for the traditional Thanksgiving Day football game.
For one Newton school, it's a rivalry that has spanned 118 years. For another, it's a tradition the teams are still forging into the history books.

Newton South loses 14-2 to Weston.
In a wet, wild, and stormy affair, the Weston High School football team beat Dual County League-foe Newton South, 14-2, Friday night. The contest was delayed halfway through for about 30 minutes due to lightning, and the rain caused fumbles, errant snaps, and slips. But the Wildcats managed touchdown runs from quarterback Jarett Rowe and running back Jorge Castro. “I’ve never been in a game like that,” said Weston coach Sean McHugh. “You know, the lightning and everything like that. You got to come back up here and get the whole team warmed up again. The kids just kept their focus. They really wanted this victory. We asked them to be physical tonight and they were.” With the victory, the Wildcats improve to 2-4. The Lions, meanwhile, …
