Plenty of teams to be thankful for

Cold, blustery conditions on Thanksgiving morning were no match for friends and families reacquainting, high schoolers living out their gridiron glory, and memories being made all over the North Shore.

The area’s annual Thanksgiving Day football games were chock full of suspense, drama and record breaking performances. For the hundreds of seniors who played in their last contest yesterday morning, it’s a day they’ll never forget.

Start at the new Bertram Field in Danvers, where Beverly High captain Isaiah White rushed for 163 yards and all three of his team’s touchdowns in a 20-6 victory over Salem in the 115th playing of “The Game.” White became his school’s all-time single season rushing leader with 1,782 yards.

Unbeaten Bishop Fenwick also had a big day, warming up for its Division 5 Super Bowl showdown next Saturday with a 36-27 home win over Pingree. And Marblehead junior Brooks Tyrrell had a game for the ages, rushing for an even 300 yards and five touchdowns as his Magicians scorched rival Swampscott, 51-13.
