MARBLEHEAD (CBS) – In Marblehead, two high school football teams went at it with a division title on the line.

Marblehead fans went nuts after their Magicians pulled one out of the hat and defeated arch-rival Swampscott 21-7 in the 106th meeting between the two schools.

They both came in undefeated in division play, so this was for a trip to the playoffs, and when it was over linebacker Oliver Gregory had a smile that went from one end zone to the other.

“It’s huge to beat Swampscott on Thanksgiving, especially for us seniors,” Gregory said. “To leave on a good note, that’s what a lot of people care about.”
