North Shuts Down Quincy 21-0 To Win 88th City Football Championship

RAIDER NATION – football players, coaches and cheerleaders – celebrate North Quincy’s 21-0 win over Quincy in the 88th city football championship Sunday at Veterans’ Memorial Stadium. North’s impressive running game and stout defense led the way as the first football game between the two high schools took place 500 days since Thanksgiving Day 2019 – the last time the two teams had met on the football field until Sunday. The 2020 Thanksgiving Day football game was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. North Quincy has now won four out of the last five football games against Quincy. The only Presidents’ win in that span came in 2019 – a 20-6 win over the Raiders. Quincy Sun Photo/Robert Bosworth
