Brockton topped the Townies in overtime.
Townies suffer overtime loss.
Charlestown marched their game to the TD Garden Monday night, and put up a strong effort, but fell in overtime to Brockton’s surge. Coach Edson Cardoso’s crew fell behind in the first half before fighting back to take a lead into the final minutes of the fourth quarter. As the clock ticked down, though, Brockton tied the score and forced the game into overtime. The boxers continued that surge and built a five-point lead—too much for the Townies to overcome. Fans tweeting from the game called it good game, saying that Charlestown played its best. Despite the loss, the squad from Charlestown High School still stands as the MIAA Division 1 North champions—a title they can claim due to their tight victory over Lexington this weekend. Brockton …

Charlestown faces Brockton tonight at the TD Garden.
The Charlestown Townies brought a different style of team to this weekend’s Division 1 North basketball finals—small and quick, according to Boston.com versus Lexington’s roster of big and powerful players. In the end, small and quick did it. The townies squeezed out a 48-44 victory and will advance to the Division 1 Eastern Mass Final tonight against Brockton at the TD Garden. Both Boston.com and ESPN Boston described the game as tight. With just seconds left, the Townies clung to a one-point lead, until senior Rony Fernandez came out of a time out to sink a three-pointer and expand the team’s safety buffer. Both teams scored again, each sinking two-pointers, but the Townies’ lead held. Now, they move on to face Brockton. Should they …

With a win over Central Catholic, the Townies are headed to the Division 1 North Finals against Lexington this Saturday.
Charlestown won Boston's City League title last year, and when their 16-4 record this year didn't even qualify them for the City League contest, a lesser team might have called it quits and packed in their gym shorts. The Townies didn't, though, and now they are on their way to the Division 1 North Finals. Their defeat of Central Catholic last night was a close one, at 54-47, and several news agencies covered their victory. The Boston Herald called them "Toasts Of Town" in their article, and in a Herald sports blog about the game said, "If there is a redeeming quality about this Townie team, it would have to be their resiliency," mentioned that they were "only playing 6 guys," and gave them credit for their "mental toughness." …

Around 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 29, three officers responded to a fight in a fourth-floor stairwell, according to a police report. Upon their arrival, officers found a large crowd of students blocking the stairwell and cheering on a fight.
