Brookline High Old Boy's take the New England's 10 Championship Saturday 7/18/98
In one of the most dramatic games played Brookline High Old Boy's win in sudden death overtime over Worcester. This was the rematch of last year when Worcester was firing on guns beating Brookline High handily.
This year Brookline had one of its best sides in years and made it into the playoff round with wins over Mystic River, Seacoast Men's and the Boston Gentlemen. They were ranked number 1 going into the elimination rounds. In the semi-finals Brookline High beat Mystic River for a second time.
Worcester came into the elimination round with wins over the Lowell Highlander's, WPI and Old Gold's B side. In their semi-finals Worcester A's was able to beat Worcester B's as you can tell all of Worcester is gearing up for their Wormtown 7's qualifier next Saturday.
Both sides scored but at the end of regulation the score remained deadlocked. During the overtime Brookline looked as if they were going to score but a diving Worcester player was able to break up a pass that would have sent Brookline towards Worcester's try zone all alone. Worcester fired back but was also thwarted on a game saving tackle. Worcester's undoing on this day was a ruck about 35 meters out. Brookline took it in but it was over played by Worcester as they were called for diving over. Brookline went for the penalty and the ball sailed directly through the middle of the posts taking the game and dethroning Worcester.
The women's bracket had the Worcester Shamrock's taking their title back west with their victory over Seacoast Women.
Congratulations to all who participated John Logan would have been proud. I am sure he was watching over as it once again felt like the hottest day of the summer.
