Player of the Week: Luke Davis, Franklin Football

Luke Davis
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Franklin senior Luke Davis has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 20 through Nov. 26. Davis is the 12h player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Davis came through in his final high school football game, scoring three touchdowns and catching the game-winning two-point conversion to help Franklin rally for a win at King Philip on Thanksgiving. It was not only the second straight win for the Panthers against the Warriors, but also clinched a share of a second straight Kelley-Rex division title (shared with first-time league champ Milford). This is the first time that Franklin has won back-to-back league titles since completing a three-peat in 1971.

“Luke Davis has always answered the call,” said Franklin head coach Eian Bain. “We lost a lot of fire power from the 2021 group. He helped replace a lot of production on the season. On Thanksgiving, we tried just about everything to get him in opportune spots to shine and he didn’t disappoint. He showed why he is one of the best receivers in the state and in our program’s history.”

Davis, who led the league in receiving touchdowns in the regular season, kicked off the Thanksgiving game with a 69-yard TD on the third play of the day. He grabbed the pass on the Franklin sideline, broke a tackle, and cut infield to find a seam to the end zone. With KP leading 14-7 late in the first half, Davis caught a six-yard pass from classmate Jase Lyons to tie it heading to the break. KP pulled ahead by two scores in the second half, but Davis hauled in a 19-yard pass, going up over the defensive back to make the grab. Franklin scored with 2:46 left in the game and, rather than going for the tie, the Panthers elected to go for two and the lead. Davis ran a quick out-route and made a sliding grab for the win. He finished with nine catches for 153 yards.

Player of the Week: Matthew Kelley, King Philip Football

Matthew Kelley
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

King Philip senior Matthew Kelley has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 13 through Nov. 19. Kelley is the 11th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Kelley played a major role in King Philip sealing its fifth Super Bowl appearance in the last six seasons. Kelley scored five points (a field goal and a pair of extra points) and picked off a pass, as the Warriors held off Bishop Feehan in the second half to win 17-10. KP is now 18-3 in the postseason since 2016.

The Warriors started the semifinal in dominant fashion, controlling the game and jumping out to a 14-0 lead, with Kelley making both extra points. Late in the first half, KP drove deep into Feehan territory but the Shamrocks held defensively. Kelley made sure that the Warriors came away with points, splitting the uprights on a 46-yard kick that made it 17-0. In a matchup that featured the running game almost exclusively, Kelley wasn’t very busy in the secondary, but with Feehan facing a third and 22 late in the fourth quarter he jumped an out-route, intercepting the pass and returning it to the Feehan 21, which essentially sealed the victory.

By HockomockSports.com Staff

King Philip senior Ahunna James has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Nov. 6 through Nov. 12. James is the 10th player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

James put together a stellar week to help King Philip sweep Nashoba and Westwood and reach the Div. 2 Final Four for the second straight season. James had 25 kills between the two matches, helping the Warriors dominant both sides of the net and make it seven straight wins without dropping a set. KP will now face No. 6 Melrose this week in the state semifinal.

“Ahunna continues to be a big part of the teams success,” said King Philip head coach Kristen Geuss. “She is a six-position player and makes an impact on both offense and defense.”

After a sweep of Notre Dame Academy in the Round of 32, James had one of the best overall matches of her career in the win over Nashoba. She finished with 15 kills, six digs, and four blocks, as the Warriors held of Nashoba in the opening set 28-26 before more comfortably winning the final two games. Her impressive play at the net continued against the Wolverines. James had 10 kills in the win, most of them smashed through the Westwood defense. She also added three digs to help the KP defensive effort in a 25-19, 25-17, 25-17 victory.

Conner Zukowski
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Mansfield senior Conner Zukowski has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 30 through Nov. 5. Zukowski is the ninth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Zukowski had another impressive game on Friday night at Alumni Field, throwing for a pair of touchdowns and running for another as the Hornets beat Wellesley 42-26 to advance to the Div. 2 quarterfinal and a meeting with top seed Milford.

“Zuk was very efficient once again with a high completion percentage,” said Mansfield coach Mike Redding about Zukowski’s performance against Wellesley. “He had some key short throws for big third-down conversions and had nice long throws for touchdowns. He has great command of the offense right now and is making us hard to defend.”

The senior signal caller completed 14-of-21 passes (67 percent) for 176 yards and two scores on Friday. He opened the scoring in the first quarter with a one-yard run and then added the two-point conversion as well. In the second, he connected with top receiver Trevor Foley for a 37-yard score. After Wellesley got on the board in the third quarter, Zukowski found Tommy Smith for a 28-yard TD that made it 28-7. For the season, Zukowski is 89-of-132 (68 percent) for 1,308 yards and is among the league leaders with 15 touchdown passes. In program history, he is now fourth all-time in passing yards (3,086) and second all-time for TD passes (32).

Player of the Week: Katie Sobieraj, OA Cross-Country

Katie Sobieraj
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Oliver Ames junior Katie Sobieraj has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 23 through Oct. 29. Sobieraj is the eighth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Sobieraj completed an impressive junior season by winning the individual title at the annual Hockomock Cross-Country Championships on Saturday morning at the Wrentham Development Center. Led by Sobieraj, Oliver Ames also won the team title with 26 points, well ahead of second-place Franklin, which finished with 60.

“Katie was the top runner in the Hockomock League all season,” said OA coach Kyle Sousa. “She has worked incredibly hard to get where she is, establishing herself as one of the elite runners in the state. But Katie is really all about the team. She is so invested in the success of her teammates. Needless to say, it puts the team in a great position when you’re taking first place every meet. But it also puts your team in a great position when your top individual has a team-first attitude.”

On a cool day in Wrentham, Sobieraj dominated the race from start to finish, completing the circuit in a time of 17:54.5. Sobieraj finished more than a minute ahead of the second-place runner. She beat her time from 2021 (19:14.2) by nearly 90 seconds and her time from 2020 as a freshman (20:24.83) by 2-1/2 minutes. In her three years at the league meet, Sobieraj has gone from third place to second to now winning the title.

Player of the Week: Evan Regan, King Philip Golf

Evan Regan
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

King Philip freshman Evan Regan has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 16 through Oct. 22. Regan is the seventh player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Regan completed an impressive rookie campaign by finishing as the co-medalist at the annual Hockomock Golf Championships, held last week at Foxboro Country Club. Reagn shot a low round of 79, tied with Mansfield’s Nate McClean. KP, which tied with Franklin for the league title during the regular season, took home the team title, shooting a combined 251 to beat the Hornets by seven strokes.

“Evan’s score on the front 9 was consistent with his group but he found his groove and shot a 2-under on the back nine, which set the tone for the rest of the morning,” said King Philip head coach Myles McHugh. “Initially we were a little concerned because because Evan is a long ball hitter but also hits the ball high with a strong wind, I was not expecting him to go so low. But Evan is a member at Walpole Country Club which also has extremely fast greens. We knew that whoever putted the best would be able to score at Foxborough and that is one area where Evan excels.”

On a difficult day, with the wind gusting throughout the round, and at arguably the league’s toughest course Regan was able to put together a solid round in his first championship event. It wasn’t an easy front nine for the freshman, who shot a 45 on the way out (only one golfer broke 40 on the front), but he came back with a 34 on the back nine, which was the lowest nine of the day. After three pars on the front nine, Regan started the back with five straight pars before a birdie on the par four 15th. He rebounded from a bogey on 16 by birdieing the par three 17 and finished his round by notching his third birdie of the day on the 502-yard, par five 18th.

Player of the Week: Caroline Folan, North Field Hockey

Caroline Folan
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

North Attleboro senior Caroline Folan has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 9 through Oct. 15. Folan is the sixth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Folan put together an excellent week for the Rocketeers, who won three games to climb up both the league standings and the Div. 2 power rankings. The senior recorded two goals and four assists in wins over Sharon, Taunton, and Dartmouth. Her 21 points on the season are the seventh highest in the league.

“Caroline had a great week using her accurate passing to drive our offense,” said North Attleboro head coach Karen Folan. “She strategically transitions the ball down the sideline and demonstrates timing and game sense, setting up her teammates for success.”

After scoring the game-winning goal in a comeback at Attleboro, Folan went into the week in good form. On Tuesday, she scored a pair of goals in a big win on the grass at Sharon. Two days later, she added an assist in North’s 6-0 win at Taunton. On Friday, Folan recorded assists on all three North goals to help them pick up a win at Dartmouth, which is just ahead of them in the latest power rankings. Folan set up her sister Madison for a goal off a corner to put North in front against the Indians and then set up Francesca Spencer in the third quarter and Julia Puccio in the fourth to put North in front 3-0. She entered the week with 13 goals and eight assists.

Player of the Week: Casey Milliken, OA Soccer

Casey Milliken
 
By HockomockSports.com Staff

Oliver Ames sophomore Casey Milliken has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Oct. 2 through Oct. 8. Milliken is the fifth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Milliken has been one of the reasons for OA’s unbeaten start to the season and the Tigers sitting atop the Davenport division standings, but last week was his best statistical week of the year. He recorded four points in both games, extending his streak of four-point games to three, and helped the Tigers rack up a pair of big wins. He currently leads the league in scoring with 23 points (10 goals and 13 assists).

“Casey has been instrumental in our success this past week and overall season,” said Oliver Ames head coach John Barata. “He has been working very hard to get his goals and assists as most teams are now doubling up on him or man marking him.”

After closing out September with two goals and two assists in a win at Sharon, Milliken kept that form going into October. On Monday, the sophomore scored four times in an 8-3 win over Taunton. He had a first-half hat trick, as the Tigers scored seven times before the break, and then added one more in the second half. Two days later, Milliken assisted Andrew Martins opening goal in an 8-0 win over Foxboro, and added two goals and another assist in the second half. He now has eight goals and four assists in his last three matches, which OA won by a combined score of 22-3.

Player of the Week: Julia Leonardo, Attleboro Volleyball

By HockomockSports.com Staff

Attleboro sophomore Julia Leonardo has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Sept. 26 through Oct. 1. Leonardo is the fourth player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Leonardo has been one the leading outside hitters in the league this season and has been one of the main reasons that the Bombardiers are off to one of the best starts in program history. This week, Leonardo powered Attleboro to a pair of wins, including a five-set thriller over previously unbeaten Franklin. The Bombardiers are now 9-1 at the midway point of the regular season.

“Julia’s performance against Franklin was nothing short of exceptional,” said Attleboro head coach Mary Katherine Runey. “She knew the level of competition we were up against and rose the the challenge. She was able to see the holes in our opponents defense and strategically place the ball with each attack. She set the tone for us defensively anticipating the next play and ensuring that no ball hit the floor untouched.”

On Wednesday, Attleboro dispatched Foxboro in three sets. Leonardo showed off her all-around game with 14 digs, nine kills, and four aces. It was Attleboro’s fourth straight win and third straight sweep. Friday night in Franklin, Attleboro got one of its toughest tests of the season, beating the Panthers 15-13 in the final set. It was Attleboro’s first win over the defending league champions. Leonardo was dominant at the net, finishing with a season-high 36 kills and chipping in with 20 digs. With the win, Attleboro, which reached the playoffs in 2021 for the first time in more than a decade, moved into a first-place tie with the Panthers and King Philip.

Player of the Week: Malachi Johnson, Taunton Football

Taunton senior Malachi Johnson has been selected as the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week, presented by Morse Insurance, for Sept. 19 through Sept. 25. Johnson is the third player chosen as Player of the Week for the 2022-23 school year.

Johnson has been one of Taunton’s most dynamic offensive players during the team’s perfect 3-0 start, despite the Tigers having to be on the road for all three weeks. He has scored two touchdowns in each of the last two games and one in the season opener. His two rushing touchdowns on Friday night helped the Tigers earn a 24-13 win over Middleboro in their toughest matchup of the seasons so far.

“We had a very balanced game plan going in and felt we could run the ball on Middleboro,” said Taunton head coach Brad Sidwell. “Malachi and Bryan Baprista, our two backs, both had good days. Our linemen kept getting stronger and we felt that Malachi would break a long run which he did at the beginning of the fourth quarter.”

In the opening game against New Bedford, Johnson impacted the game on special teams, responding to the Whalers’ only touchdown by returning the ensuing kick 86 yards for a Taunton score. The following week against Durfee, Johnson capped the first half with a 15-yard touchdown and added a 60-yard score on the first play from scrimmage in the third quarter. This week, Johnson rushed for 167 yards on 19 carries and another two touchdowns. He punched one in from a yard out in the second quarter to regain the lead for the Tigers and in the fourth quarter he broke a 52-yard run that gave Taunton the two-score lead it held to the final whistle.
