Unbeaten champions never let go of the rope all season

(Continued)

FOXBOROUGH —

"That's the thing that sets this team apart. We make big plays on defense, but then turn around and capitalize on them."

In a season full of them, those two game-changing turnovers were the biggest of the entire Beverly season.

"Those two plays came out of nowhere by Shippy and McGee," said Bauer. "That wasn't coaching; that was all heart and desire."

Thirteen games. Thirteen victories. Nary a loss.

And 55-odd pieces of torn and frayed rope.

It all adds up to one perfect season for the history books.
