By DAN BYRNE WAKEFIELD — Friday night, it was cold up at Landrigan Field and by the time kickoff rolled around the breeze had started to pick up, making for some brisk fall football conditions.

Published in the November 8, 2019 edition. By DAN PAWLOWSKI WAKEFIELD — The Wakefield High football team is better off looking at strength of schedule rather than record when scouting tonight’s opponent.

The Warriors answered that emphatically, winning the final three games of their season by a combined scoring margin of 16-2 and ultimately ending up just one game out of playoff contention. “This team was very close this year on...
