Roundup: North Andover upsets East Boston

Fourth-ranked Jets grounded on road

Unranked North Andover earned a big home victory, rallying from a 7-point halftime deficit to upset fourth-ranked East Boston, 52-43, last night in boys’ basketball.

“We needed to take care of the ball,’’ said Scarlet Knights coach Mike McVeigh, whose squad is 8-1. “Eastie’s been forcing teams to 30 turnovers and we beat their pressure. It was a big win.’’


East Boston (7-3) led at the half, 27-20, but an early 11-3 run had the Scarlet Knights jogging to their bench with a 39-38 lead to start the fourth. Good transition play and a 3-pointer by 6-foot-6-inch junior Isaiah Nelson helped North Andover finish the game on a 6-0 run.

“They like to run but so do we, so we kept running and stayed confident the whole time,’’ said senior captain Nick Karalis.

The MIAA Board of Directors yesterday voted to allow Chatham and Harwich student-athletes to play as Monomy Regional this fall, one year before the two Cape Cod schools officially merge. Chatham and Harwich will merge starting in 2013-14, but the schools asked the MIAA for permission to play together a year early. Board chairman and Case principal Brian McCann lauded the idea, and then the board unanimously agreed.
