The 7th grade Dedham Metrowest boys are now in sole possession of first place at 8-0 in the season.
The game stood tied at 57-57. There were four-tenths of a second left on the clock, and Dedham's Dylan Maida was standing on the free-throw line. Norwood had just committed a technical foul (too many men on the floor) and Dylan had been chosen by his teammates to take two shots. This was an important match-up, between the number one (Dedham 7-0) and the number two (Norwood 6-1) teams in the division. From the opening buzzer, Dedham stepped up and took control of the game. At the end of the first quarter, Dedham held on to a 20-12 lead. The second quarter proved just as intense, with dozens of whistles stopping the play throughout. At the half, the boys from Dedham had their largest lead of the game 35-25. The pace of the first half however…

Tickets to the Jan. 13 AFC Divisional Playoff game in Foxborough go on sale to the general public on Monday, Jan. 7.
Hosting playoff games in Foxborough used to be rarity for the New England Patriots and its fans prior to the Robert Kraft era. In fact, the Patriots hosted just one playoff game in the first 34 years of the franchise's history - a loss to the Houston Oilers in 1978 - prior to Kraft buying the team in 1994. Since then, the Patriots have qualified for the playoffs 14 times, including 12 times as AFC East division champions. With a 12-4 regular season record in 2012, the Patriots claimed their fourth consecutive division title and enter this year’s playoffs as the second seed in the AFC. It is the fourth time in franchise history that the team has earned the second seed. What's better is that in three of those seasons the Patriots advanced to…

Mike Breen and Walter Aspinwall paired for a solid win at first doubles, finishing first out of the five matches. Liam and Nathan both played dominant singles matches to …
