CHS Boys Outlast Eastie, Head to St. Mary’s of Lynn
The Chelsea High boys basketball team opened play in the Division 3 state tournament with a pulsating 84-80 victory over East Boston this past Tuesday evening in a preliminary round contest at the CHS gymnasium.
The Red Devils entered the tourney as the 32nd seed in D-3. Eastie was seeded 33rd.
Chelsea now advances to the Round of 32 where the Red Devils will meet St. Mary’s of Lynn, the top seed in D-3. St. Mary’s compiled a 22-1 record during the regular season, the lone loss coming to First Baptist High in Naples, Florida when the Spartans enjoyed a December trip to the Sunshine State.
The opening tip is set for tomorrow (Friday) evening at 5:00 at St. Mary’s.
