TEWKSBURY — With the game tied and 3:04 remaining in Saturday’s Division 3 Northeast final, No. 15 Marblehead had the ball at its 14-yard line.

Senior quarterback Matt Millett went to the short passing game, throwing back-to-back times toward the Magicians’ sideline in front of the Tewksbury defense.

Tewksbury junior Tom Casey jumped the underneath route, intercepted the pass, and ran it back 21 yards for the go-ahead score as the No. 7 Redmen topped Marblehead, 34-21, at Doucette Field.
