SACO—The "Game of the Century" proved to be just another day at the office for the finest football team in the state.
Make that the finest team in the history of high school football in the state.
For the better part of three seasons, the Cheverus Stags have turned away every foe and risen to the level of champion.
Saturday afternoon at Dr. Paul S. Hill Jr. Stadium, the Stags became a team for the ages.
In a regional final rematch/showdown at Thornton Academy, Cheverus displayed every reason why it is the program that all others now measure themselves against.
When the Stags needed to run the ball, they did, to the tune of 313 of their total 399 yards. When they needed to mix it up and go to the air, that worked as well. Then, of course, there was the defense, which held the potent Golden Trojans to just 196 yards.
