BC High ground game runs down Brockton


Tommy Ai­cardi won’t be don­ning a Har­vard uni­form un­til next fall, but last night at Har­vard Sta­dium he looked right at home.

Ai­cardi an- chored the BC High of­fen­sive line and pow­ered a pro­lific Ea­gles run­ning game en route to a 42-18 win over Brockton.

Fel­low Har­vard-bound run­ning back Danny Abra­ham (15 car­ries, 121 yards) scored a pair of touch­downs for the Ea­gles (4-0) while quar­ter­back Will Bowen (14 car­ries, 41 yards) had three scores on the ground.

Ai­cardi is the cen­ter­piece of a line that has helped the Ea­gles pile up over 200 rush­ing yards in each of their first four games. BC High had 277 of their 329 yards via the run last night.

“We take a lot of pride in how we play up front,” Ai­cardi said. “Danny and Will do a lot of the work but we’ve come to­gether as a unit re­ally well.”

Down 28-6 at the half, the Box­ers got a spark to open the sec­ond half when Jose Mon­teiro Jr. hit Paul Mitchell for an 89-yard touch­down pass to cut the Ea­gles lead to 16.

But BC High’s run­ning game as­serted it­self on its next pos­ses­sion, as Bowen and Abra­ham led a 10-play drive capped off by Abra­ham’s 25-yard touch­down run to push the Ea­gles ad­van­tage to 35-12.

“Danny and I play­ing to­gether here was def­i­nitely a great look at the fu­ture,” said Ai­cardi.

Trail­ing 7-0 the Box­ers came within a point mid­way through the first quar­ter when Dex­ter Cum­ber­lan­der rum­bled in for a 3-yard touch­down.

BC High re­sponded in­stantly as a 77-yard kick re­turn from John Perez set up Bowen’s first score from 7 yards out to give the Ea­gles a 14-6 edge.

The Ea­gles took con­trol in the sec­ond quar­ter and Bowen got it started by hit­ting Carter Rice for a 32-yard gain be­fore scam­per­ing in for a 3-yard touch­down.

Af­ter a Zack Catar­ius sack forced a punt, a pair of rushes by Abra­ham set up Bowen’s third touch­down of the half and a 28-6 lead.
