FOXBOROUGH — Junior running back James Sullivan says he can still remember the feeling he had when Tewksbury lost to Duxbury, 35-0, in the MIAA Division 2 Super Bowl in 2011.
And for him, and the rest of his team, it was time to finally capture that state title.
“Ever since that game against Duxbury, it’s been in the back of all our heads,” Sullivan said. “Then the next season, we came out and lost in the playoffs again. [The losses have] been driving us as a team. It pretty much served as our motivation all year long.”
Sullivan led the way with 125 rushing yards and three touchdowns on 21 carries in Tewksbury’s resounding, 42-14, victory over Plymouth South Saturday at Gillette Stadium.
Sullivan also intercepted a pass and returned it for a touchdown with less than two minutes to play in the fourth quarter. . Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
