They may not have made the MIAA playoffs, but South Shore, Southeastern, and Shawsheen are all going to play another game.
The three teams, in addition to Franklin County Vocational Tech from Turners Falls, were invited to participate in the Vocational Tech Bowls to be held next Thursday at Quincy Memorial Stadium.
Shawsheen rolled to a four-TD lead yesterday before beating Greater Lowell, 28-14, behind the tailback combination of Christopher Clark (10 carries, 123 yards, 1 touchdown) and Corey Foss (12 carries, 107 yards, 1 touchdown). Shawsheen will play Southeastern at 4:30 p.m.
South Shore, which beat Southeastern yesterday, 12-0, thanks in part to game MVP Jayson Sullivan's 156 yards passing and one touchdown (in addition to 43 yards rushing), will take on Franklin County at 7.
Southeastern, despite going 2-3 in Mayflower Large play, got the nod over Cape Cod Tech, which finished 3-2 in the league but lost the head-to-head matchup, 14-6, Oct. 13.
