A recap of Thanksgiving football action in the Hockomock League.
If anything, Thanksgiving once again proved how exciting and unpredictable the Hockomock League can be. The League's two playoff teams both lost; Stoughton and Mansfield's long Thanksgiving win streaks were snapped, while Oliver Ames extended its streak; the King Philip/Franklin and Stoughton/Canton games came down to the wire, with the KP/Franklin game being decided in the final seconds, and with Stoughton/Canton being decided in overtime, and Foxborough orchestrated a second-half comeback vs. Mansfield. The other games were blowouts. Thanksgiving marked the end of the season for nine of the teams in the league, but Mansfield (Division 2) and Sharon (Division 3) will head to the postseason, playing in a semifinal game Tuesday night, …

A breakdown of the Attleboro-North Attleboro Thanksgiving Day football rivalry over the years.
When the Attleboro and North Attleboro high school football teams meet Thanksgiving Day in Attleboro at 10 a.m., the Bombardiers will be looking to break the Rocketeers' three-game holiday win streak. North Attleboro has owned the series in recent years. Attleboro's last win was in 2008 when Matt Campbell ran for two touchdowns in a 12-10 win over the Red Rocketeers. Before that game, the last Attleboro win was a 22-8 decision in 1994. The Red Rocketeers lead the series 56-27-8. Both teams have been eliminated from postseason play as Mansfield has already been crowned champion of the Hockomock League's Kelley-Rex Division, despite losing to North Attleboro during the regular season. The Rocketeers are 2-2 in the Kelley-Rex Division and 6-4…

Taunton defeats the Bombardiers 40-34.
Late in the fourth quarter of a spectacular Friday night offensive showcase between Attleboro and Taunton at Tozier-Cassidy Field, Bombardier receiver Tom Burns caught a pass from quarterback Tim Walsh to score a 59-yard touchdown and tie the game at 32 points apiece. This was followed by a fake extra-point kick that turned into a two-point conversion via a pass from Brandon Clark to Luke Morrison. Attleboro had a two-point lead and it appeared the team that had lost five straight games after a 4-0 start would finally win again. But it was not to be. Less than a minute later, Taunton's Domingo Jenkins, who along with fellow running back Jamal Williams had given the Attleboro defense trouble all night, ran the ball 50 yards into the end …

Stoughton High, led by three passing touchdowns from quarterback Dan Eckler, and solid defensive play, improved to 8-1 with a 26-8 win over Attleboro (4-5) Friday night in Stoughton.
The Attleboro High football team had the ball in opposing territory six times Friday night, including three times in the red zone, but scored only once, losing 26-8 at Stoughton. In its first nine drives of the game before scoring its only touchdown, Attleboro turned the ball over on downs four times, had two interceptions, a fumble and punted twice (one of which was blocked setting up a Stoughton touchdown). Stoughton is now 8-1 on the season, while Attleboro, once 4-0, is now 4-5. This is Attleboro's first loss to Stoughton since Attleboro joined the Hockomock League in 2010. "We were able to move the ball. Our goal was to come in and try to go 3, 4 yards at a whack, try to keep the chains moving and we seemed to be doing that a little …

A recap of Week 8 football action in the Hockomock League.
While one of the Hockomock League's divisions has a somewhat clear playoff picture, the other is chaotic and wide-open, of course setting up what should be a thrilling final three weeks of the season. After week 8, Sharon, Stoughton and Foxborough have the most realistic path to a Davenport Division (small schools) title and with it a Division 3 playoff berth. The division title is based on a team's four-game division record at season's end. At 2-0 in division play, Sharon is in the driver's seat and Stoughton and Foxborough, both at 2-1, are right behind. Sharon has a head to head win over Stoughton and Stoughton has a head to head win over Foxborough. Sharon and Foxborough play Nov. 10. With Mansfield and Franklin both losing in week 8…

A recap of Week 7 football action in the Hockomock League.
Heading into week 7, it was fair to say King Philip and Stoughton, both undefeated, were the favorites in the Hockomock League's Kelly-Rex and Davenport Divisions, respectively. But after a crazy Saturday of Hockomock League football, filled with upsets and shootouts, new favorites have emerged. Canton had a week 7 bye, but all the other teams had division games, which meant all games had direct playoff implications. The division winners from the Davenport and Kelly-Rex advance to the postseason. In the Davenport, Stoughton fell at Sharon, 16-14, after Sean Asnes scored the game-winning touchdown with 11 seconds left. The win put Sharon in the Davenport driver's seat with a perfect 2-0 record. Stoughton is 1-1. Foxborough, meanwhile …
