3. King Philip Sports Today

In football, the Warriors travel to North Attleboro for a match-up with postseason implications. Play at Community Field at 4:00 p.m., a win brings the Warriors one step closer to another Kelley-Rex title but a loss would almost make certain that their season would end on Thanksgiving.

On Saturday Morning, cross country teams all across Massachusetts will come to the Wrentham Developmental Center for the MIAA Eastern Divisional Championships. The Warrior boys will run in the Divsion III race at 1:50 p.m. while the girls will take to the course at 12:30 p.m.

5. Spaulding Rehab, Mass General and Revolution Partners for Annual “Youth with Disabilities Soccer Clinic”

The New England Revolution, Spaulding Rehabilitation Network and Massachusetts General Hospital hosted a free Youth with Disabilities Soccer Clinic at the Dana Farber Field House at Gillette Stadium on October 24th. In its 6th year of the partnership to hold the annual free event, saw more than 90 children from Massachusetts and Rhode Island participated, along with friends and family members.  Participants practiced alongside stars from the New England Revolution and learned about the importance of teamwork.

“Our current team has kids ages 3-14, with various abilities.  Some of our athletes have autism, cerebral palsy, and hearing impairments,” said Michele Traver Coordinator and Coach, Wareham TOPSoccer. “It was amazing seeing the Revs players interact with the kids on such a personal level. The players seemed to enjoy themselves as much as the kids enjoyed having them on the field with them.”    

Children from Partners with Youth for Disabilities, the Special Olympics, current and former patients of Spaulding Rehab and Mass General, and area youth soccer programs attended this year’s clinic. Participants practiced their skills while receiving individual attention by New England Revolution player; Darrius Barnes, Ryan Guy, Flo Lechner, Alec Purdie, Matt Reis and Mike Roach. After the clinic, the players posed for photos and held a question-and-answer session with all of the participants.    

“We are thrilled to partner again with Spaulding Rehab and Mass General to host this wonderful event that keeps growing each year,” said Deven Apajee, Revolution Academy Director & Youth Teams Coordinator.  “It‘s terrific to see so many local youth players improving their skills and prove once again that soccer is a game everyone can enjoy.”
