Needham came out swinging against BC High School in the Division I Super Bowl on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium, recovering an on-sides kick on the opening kick-off, then marching down the field to score the first points of the contest to build a 7-0 lead. BC High marched down the field to tie the game at 7-7, which remained the score until the start of the second quarter, when BC High got a 91-yard touchdown from their back-up running back to build a 14-7 lead going into the half.
BC High got on the board first in the third quarter, to go up 21-7, and although the Rockets managed to get inside the 30-yard line four more times, they were unable to get into the endzone. Though they put up a tough, hard-nosed fight against the Eagles, Needham dropped the program's first ever Super Bowl 21-7.
The Rockets end their historic season as the BSC Carey Division Champions with a final record of 9-4.
