GRR: Belmont High
The Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association league is coming to its culmination with the semifinals this week.
Belmont High School opened up the Massachusetts Interscholastic season with a defeat of longtime rivals BC High 24-17.
These two teams have been in every Massachusetts final for the past eight years or so, and opening up a much-delayed season against each other was tough, but it ended up being an entertaining game, and a much-needed one.
Belmont HS swept the Massachusetts state championships in D1 with wins for both the boys and girls teams this past weekend.
It's championship tournament time in the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association, with this the first year of an officially-sanctioned varsity rugby league in the Bay Stat.
In a repeat of last year’s semi-finals, BC High (5-0) takes on Xaverian (3-3). These two haven't met since Week 2. St. John’s Prep (5-1) hosts Belmont HS (4-2), who met in Week 4.
