The Wellesley High School senior women went on the road and shut out the Needham Rockets 10-0 in the annual pre-Thanksgiving Day flag football classic.
The Raiders went up 3-0 in the first quarter on an Isabella Turco field goal, and she completed the scoring in the fourth quarter with a long touchdown run. Wellesley put the kibosh on Needham’s offense throughout the day with a defense that would have made the stingy Patriots’ D envious.
As usual, the Wellesley Police Department coached the Raiders.
