O’Bryant pulls out win, eyes Dorchester next

By Evan Freedman, BPSsports.com Correspondent

O’Bryant overcame a shaky first half Friday against West Roxbury, but scored late to win and keep pace in the bunched up South Division.  O’Bryant (4-3)fumbled a kickoff early which lead to a Raiders’ score, but  Tigers’ sophomore running back Mehki Williams ran for a 54 yard touchdown in the fourth to seal the win, 8-6.

“It was a struggle,” said Tigers’ Head Coach Kevin Gadson.  “We had a bad first half, but we turned it around and executed in the second half.  It was a hard hitting game against a big, tough, Westie team.”

The Tigers are in good shape to make a run at the top of the division, as they face division opponent Dorchester this week, and division leading Latin Academy on November 10.

“We’ve got our hands full with Dorchester,” said Gadson.  “It’s a big game.  Hoopefully we can play a little better and it will be a good one.”

Dorchester (3-2) has won three of four and is coming off a 20-0 shutout at English.  The Bears showed a stout defense against the Blue and Blue, allowing just three first downs.  They look to continue that trend at O’Bryant this week.

The game will be played at 3:30 Friday at Madison Park.
