HARWICH – Although it's been a week since the Monomoy Sharks defeated the St. John Paul II Lions 19-6 in their second Thanksgiving game, it's likely that senior Zach Parker is still smiling, and with good reason: it was Parker's 65-yard touchdown that ignited the spark leading the Sharks to victory. “They did a great job,” said head coach Larry Souza. “I think we finally played the way we knew we could play al...

The intermittent rain that plagued most of the Cape Tech boys varsity soccer team’s Nov. 5 MIAA Div. 4 South tournament game stopped long enough for Paulo Loureiro to size up his free kick, the one he’d told his coach he wanted when Ivan Popov put him in during the final minutes of the second overtime. This was his team’s make-it-or-break-it moment and he didn’t want to let them down. As the official whistled,...
