On a brisk fall night, Dartmouth quarterback Sean Sylvia and the Indians avenged last year's semifinal loss with a knockout win over Brockton at Rocky Marciano Stadium.

The day Marshfield twins Brad and Luke Poirier were born, Ginny Silva happened to be in the delivery room as they were welcomed into the world.
