Ortiz’s career ends in sickening fashion 1

By Ryan Fitzgerald – Co-Editor-in-Chief

This moment was always coming, but I’m not sure anyone thought it would come like this. Even if you didn’t think the Sox would win it all, I don’t think you predicted this. A sweep? C’mon. After all he has done for the Sox and entire city of Boston, that’s how Papi’s career is going to end? The Cleveland Indians sweep the Boston Red Sox three games in a row? No. He has to come back right? No. One more year? No. That was a dream, more like a nightmare. The Sox are still playing tonight. Nope. It’s over. And it really hurts.

Sox and Pats look for wins on Sunday Reply

The last time the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox played on the same day was nearly three years ago, October 13, 2013. I remember this distinctly because I was at the Patriots game against the New Orleans Saints at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots were losing late in the game. I left early (per my dad’s request) and while we were walking to the car we heard a roar from the stadium as Brady threw a game-winning touchdown pass with five seconds to spare.

Oh Sundays. We love them for football, nachos, and the community feeling we get from spending game day with friends to watch our favorite team compete. But what some of us have come to love even more about Sundays is managing our own football team. Well, fantasy football team.

Women’s soccer strives for lucky seven Reply

By James Payne and Matthew Ferris – 1851 Staff

The 2015 soccer season concluded with a stunning finish to the Great North-east Athletic Conference (GNAC) women’s soccer tournament at Lasell. The Lasers took on the Emmanuel College Saints. The championship match was scoreless for 85 minutes before current sophomore Carly Zdanek put the Lasers in front, until the Saints tied it up two minutes later. The score was 1-1 after regulation and stayed that way through two overtime periods. This led to a penalty kick shootout. The Lasers prevailed over Emmanuel 5-3 to take home their sixth consecutive GNAC title.

This year’s squad looks to reel in their seventh conference championship led by senior captains Megan Cullen (forward), Devon Day (midfielder), Mack Kingman (midfielder), and junior goalkeeper Sarah LaClair.
