Madison Park punched its ticket to Division 4A Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium by ending a two-game losing streak against Bristol-Plymouth on Tuesday night. The Cardinals (8-4) survived the snowy and wet conditions despite five fumbles, including one lost fumble. But B-P lost two of its five fumbles, including one scooped up by senior Alexis Santiago on the first play of the game. Santiago also collected a B-P fumble with 7:15 left in the half before he rushed for a 5-yard TD run eight plays later to put his team up 12-0. Senior David Stewart capped the Cardinals scoring with a 72 yard kickoff return for a touchdown with 2:28 left in the third quarter. B-P (5-7), which upset Blue Hills on Thanksgiving morning to win the Mayflower (Large) and advance to the playoffs, was led by senior running back Adam Mota, who rushed for 34 yards and his team's only TD of the game. Santiago rushed for 64 yards while junior Dawhensky Fredrick added 45 yards rushing for Madison Park. Making its third trip to the Super Bowl in school history, Madison Park will look to win its first Super Bowl against the winner of Cathedral and North Shore Tech at 9 a.m. on Saturday morning.
