Well today was the day as for the 129th time Wellesley and Needham took to the field this time at Needham’s Memorial Field. A lot was on the line as Wellesley was looking for their first 10 win season in over a decade, and to snap Needham’s 2 game winning streak and also 4 game winning streak at home in the rivalry. Meanwhile the Rockets were looking to clinch a winning record on the season and also tie up the all time series with a victory. How would it all turn out, well this one was all Wellesley as behind a 200 yard and 3 touchdown performance from senior running back Grant Chryssicas the Raiders ran out to a 27-7 halftime lead and never looked back taking this one 34-14 to finish the season at 10-1 and improve to 61-59-9 all time in the rivalry. Needham meanwhile finishes the season 5-6. Congratulations to both teams on their respective seasons and also best of luck to the seniors on their future endeavors!
