Jets and the Knights Will Clash at Fenway Park

The 102nd game in the East Boston High School-South Boston High School football rivalry, originally planned for White Stadium on Thanksgiving morning at 9:30 a.m. will take place at Fenway Park on Tuesday evening, November 23 at 5 p.m.  Tickets are $20. And can be purchased on the website and at the entrance to the park on game day. 

As we go to press, the East Boston High Jets, led by John Parziale are 7-2.  A loss to Amesbury on November 5 by a score of 50-14 ended their chance to advance in reaching the Division 7 superbowl.  The Jets ended the regular season on Thursday, November 11 with a 32-6 win over Saugus.  The South Boston Knights, led by Germaine Sattiawhite are 4-4.  The Knights ended the season last Saturday, November 13 with a 48-0 win over Minuteman. The rivalry began in 1903.  Over the years, there have been missed or cancelled games including last November due to the Covid 19 pandemic.  Overall, East Boston leads the rivalry at 45-42.  All are welcomed and encouraged to cheer on both teams at venerable Fenway Park as the field will have been transformed into a gridiron for the occasion.  Following the 5 p.m. game, Andover and North Andover will play at 7:30 p.m.
