The Little Drummer Boy Causes Technical
The Haverhill High School boy's bench was given a technical foul in Friday evening's game against Dracut because a student was banging the drum in the crowd. The M.I.A.A. does have a rule about noise makers and I guess they hold the home team responsible. To be honest, I like the drum banging as it makes the atmosphere college-like. However, in the officials defense, he had warned the student earlier in the game. The funny part of this story is that the technical foul came with 8 seconds left in the game and Haverhill up by 7 points. The story gets even better as the technical occurred as the home team was shooting free-throws, not their opponent.
