MEN’S SOCCER LEAGUE POSTS ANOTHER WIN
Charlestown Football Club took one more step in its quest for the OTHSL Division 6 title on Nov. 11 at Charlestown High field. It was the 100th anniversary of the end of WWI. Both teams observed a moment of silence at the start of the game with some words dedicated to the many men and women that sacrificed so much.
The Townies looked very good from the start and nothing was going to deviate them from their objective. After the first half, winning 4-2, it was clear that it was going to be a good day for the Charlestown squad. The game finished with a 5-3 score and some celebration at Monument Tavern afterward.
The final game of the season for the Title will be played Nov. 18 in Lunenburg against Lynnfield FC.
