Dorchester played its first game at its new home field Friday night, but it was Latin Academy that danced off the Roberts Field turf victorious.
Behind a balanced offensive attack, and a swarming defense, the Dragons spoiled Dorchester’s home opener, 24-10. Spearheaded by dynamic senior quarterback Kyle Dance’s three touchdowns (two passing, one rushing), Latin Academy improved to 3-0.
“It feels good, especially the way they beat us last year, which kept us from going to the Super Bowl,” said Dance. “They were a good team, we came out hard, they came out physical, but I think in the end we did a good job,” he said.
Even though Dorchester scored the first-ever points on Roberts Field, Latin Academy took the lead in the second quarter and never relinquished it. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
