The Revere football team earned its first win of the season, 29-7, over Medford on Friday night.

Freshman quarterback Calvin Boudreau was 13-for-16 on pass attempts with two touchdown passes.

“Calvin has been a pleasant surprise,” Revere coach Lou Cicatelli said. “He has been a great leader and he manages our offense very well.”

Receivers Edeh Ballo and Jonathan Murphy each caught a touchdown pass. Running back Darius McNeil ran for 100 yards and a touchdown.

Defensively, Frank Sims and Zach Carifio combined for 20 tackles.

“The goal for us was to be a very good, put together team across the board,” Cicatelli said. “It was huge to get that first win and get that monkey off our backs. Offensively, we’ve struggled but tonight we put it all together.”

Revere (1-4) will look to make it two wins in a row when the Patriots host Swampscott next Friday night.

“They’re a tough team with a great air attack,” Cicatelli said. “They’re a hungry team. For us, it’s about getting better. If we can get better game by game, I think we can get ourselves back in the mix.”

Williams 41, Fenwick 20

The Archies scored on their opening drive and didn’t look back as they took down the Crusaders at Donaldson Stadium.

Williams went up 13-0 after a half. Jaycob Reynosa added a score for Fenwick in the third on a one-yard run to make it 19-6, and sophomore David Cifuentes added another score to make it 27-12 late in the game, but the Fenwick defense couldn’t hold Williams as Kyle LaVallee added his fourth score of the night in the fourth to make it 34-12.

Cory Bright hooked up with George Fiskatoris for a late touchdown for Fenwick.

Salem 46, Winthrop 7

Salem’s Vinnie Gaskins had a night to remember, setting a new school record for touchdowns in a game with five in the Witches’ big win over Winthrop.

Jeffrey Rodriguez got the scoring started for Salem with a 47-yard touchdown run in the first. Gaskins tacked on a 34-yard scoring run to make it 12-0 to end the first.

Winthrop had a good chance in the second, recovering a Witches fumble and getting inside the Salem 10, but two sacks stifled any momentum the Vikings could muster.

Gaskins added his second of the night just before halftime to make it 18-0. In the third, quarterback Thomas Beauregard hit Gaskins with a screen pass and Gaskins took it 65 yards to the end zone to make it 26-0. His fourth score was a 26-yard run, and later Beauregard hooked up with Gaskins on a 30-yard scoring pass for touchdown No. 5.

Freshman Bobby Hubert got the Vikings on the board in the fourth with a 68-yard touchdown run.

Gaskins finished with 200 yards on 13 carries and three catches for 112 yards. Beauregard was 5-of-6 passing for 160 yards and two touchdowns.

Crowley hit Mike Yarin for a 70-yard gain in the Eagles’ first drive that ended on a three-yard run from Aise Pream to make it 7-7 early in the second. Later, Crowley connected with Luke Brennan for a 23-yard score to make it 14-7, and Richie Williams set up another Pream score late in the second to make it 21-7. The Eagles took a 28-7 lead on a scoring pass to Max Freedman with less than a minute to play in the half. Will Fay added a 30-yard field goal to make it 28-10 at the half.
