Local ties to Tufts

The Tufts football team lost a tough one Saturday, 49-35 to Williams, which made it 28 defeats in a row for the Jumbos. This was a particularly tough loss because Williams, like Tufts, entered the game with an 0-4 record. Former Pentucket standout Tommy Beaton is the running backs coach and recruiting coordinator for the Jumbos. Newburyport High head football coach Ed Gaudiano and athletic director Bob Clarke were defensive assistants at Tufts until 1988, when they came to Newburyport together.

Senior Night Alert

The Newburyport field hockey team will host Triton tomorrow night at Amesbury Park at 7. Parents of senior players will be honored before the game. Similar ceremonies will take place for the boys and girls soccer teams on Friday night. The boys will host Triton at World War Memorial Stadium at 5, and the girls’ game will immediately follow.
