NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. – For the second time in three years, Hilda will be heading back to Attleboro High.

Brendan Nunes rushed for 205 yards and two scores and caught a third touchdown from sophomore Cam Furtado, who also added two rushing scores of his own, as Attleboro (7-4) rolled to a 34-21 victory to win its second straight Thanksgiving Day game against North Attleboro at Community Field.

Attleboro head coach Mike Strachan said, “North Attleboro is one of the best programs in the state and we had to play one of our best games to win this afternoon and I think we did. We executed offensively and defensively and in special teams we did.”

Nunes started his season with four touchdowns in the opening win against Bishop Feehan, but late in that game picked up a high ankle sprain. He missed 2-1/2 games due to the injury and was limited when he did take the field. With a healthy Nunes in the backfield, the Attleboro offense clicked into gear on Thursday.

“We did a great job up front,” said Nunes. “My guys did a great job and couldn’t have done it without them. They set it all up for me.”

Senior lineman Kyle Murphy added, “Nobody can stop that kid. I really think he should’ve won Hock MVP because he’s the best running back in the league.”

North Attleboro (9-2) took the early lead on its first possession with an impressive seven-play, 80-yard drive. Sophomore quarterback Chad Peterson hit Kyle Gaumond down the seam on North’s first play from scrimmage for a 44-yard gain into Attleboro territory. Peterson (12-23, 194 yards) capped the drive with the first of his two touchdown passes, hitting Ridge Olsen (five catches, 77 yards) over the middle for 18 yards.

The Rocketeers gifted Attleboro a chance to get back into the game with a short punt that allowed the Bombardiers to start at the North 27. Nunes broke free for a 16 yard sweep and three plays later punched it in from five yards to tie the game.

Another struggle in the punting game gave Attleboro the ball at the North 39 on its next possession. Nunes broke another 16-yard run through the middle and then on the next play Furtado pump faked short and threw the ball to the front corner of the end zone where Nunes made the grab for a 23-yard score. The extra point was wide left and it was 13-7.

“He’s a special athlete,” said Strachan about Nunes. “He’s just gifted. To do what he did – 1,000-yard rusher, Balfour Trophy, bringing Hilda back to Attleboro – I think for me it says everything about the kid. He’s a true leader.”

The mistakes continued for North Attleboro on its next possession. Bobby Mylod fumbled at the Attleboro 44 and Sam Iampierto jumped on it for the Bombardiers.

Attleboro marched down to the North 20 where it faced third and 10 with fewer than 20 seconds remaining. Running behind Kyle Murphy, Furtado (14 carries, 59 yards) took off down the near sideline and broke a tackle at the goal line for a touchdown with five seconds left in the half. The Bombardiers went for a trick play on the conversion with the holder flipping it to Furtado and he found Alex Silva for two.

“I thought in the first half in particular we really hurt ourselves,” said North Attleboro coach Don Johnson. “We weren’t good in the kicking game, so we didn’t have good field position the whole first half and then we made some mistakes.”

The Bombardiers tacked on another touchdown with 3:36 left in the third quarter. Davon Andrade sacked Furtado to force third and 18, but Nunes broke free for a 31-yard gain down to the North two-yard line. On the next play, Furtado faked a sweep to Nunes and walked in untouched for the score.

“He really stepped up,” said Murphy about Furtado, who took over midway through the season. “He has a lot of confidence; he’s a tough kid; and he’s going to make a big difference the next two years.”

North cut the lead to two scores on its next possession, when Peterson hit Gaumond on a fly pattern down the sideline. The 30-yard score made it 28-14, but the momentum only lasted four plays. Furtado and John Burns each gained 19 yards and then Nunes got the edge and broke away for 31 yards and another TD.

“We got a little momentum going but then we throw an interception,” said Johnson, “It seemed like it was one of those days that everything we tried we couldn’t really get going.”

Kyle McCarthy took over under center for North in the fourth quarter. He was 5-5 for 45 yards on his one drive and found Olsen for a 16-yard touchdown. The North receiver pulled in the pass against double coverage.

“I think overall we just got worn down at the end of the season,” said Johnson. “I think we got the most that we could get out of this team and i think we got a little worn down down the stretch.”

After snapping a 20-year drought against its arch-rival in 2008, Attleboro has now won two of the last three Thanksgiving Day match-ups and added a league win against North in 2013.

Strachan played at North Attleboro and has coached the Bombardiers since 2013. He understand the rivalry from both sides and he explained that it has always been about more than just the results on the field.

“This is the community,” he said. “We’re rivals, but at the end of the day we have a tremendous amount of respect for each other and for me that’s the most important thing.”

When asked how it felt to beat North, Nunes, who received the Balfour Trophy as the game’s offensive MVP, responded, “It’s the greatest feeling of my life. I’ll never forget it.”

Furtado Jumpstarts Bombardiers Offense Against KP

By Josh Perry, Managing Editor

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – It was only Friday morning when Attleboro knew that it was going to have to make a change at quarterback. An injury sidelined starter Tyler McGovern, who was on crutches on the sidelines that night, forcing sophomore Cameron Furtado to take over under center for the Bombardiers.

Rather than be overwhelmed by the moment, Furtado provided a spark for an offense that had been struggling to score points and was shutout last week by rival North Attleboro.

The Bombardiers scored on each of their first two possessions and jumped out to a three-score lead by halftime to get back to .500 on the season with a 25-15 win over King Philip in a game that had to be moved to Tozier-Cassidy Field because of maintenance on the new track at KP.

“It was a good win for us,” said Attleboro coach Mike Strachan. “Cam did a great job managing the game, the defense hunkered down when we needed to, and special teams did a good job.”

Furtado made an instant impact for the Bombardiers. After just missing the fingertips of senior wideout Alex Silva throwing deep on the first play of the game, he scampered 41 yards on a keeper to the KP 40. The next play he swung the ball to the outside and Brendan Nunes did the rest for a 40-yard touchdown.

After a KP put, Attleboro put together a 10-play, 74-yard drive to extend the lead. Furtado (13 carries, 110 yards) was the key with five carries for 32 yards and he also picked out Alex Silva down the sideline for 36 yards. Furtado, known as a runner, completed 5-9 passes for 127 yards on the night.

Strachan said, “He’s an athlete and you know he’s only a sophomore for us and he made a lot of great plays.”

He added, “The big difference between this week and other weeks is that we made plays.”

McGovern is a drop back passer and it was clear at the start that the KP defense had a hard time adjusting to the very different look that Furtado brought to the Attleboro offense.

KP coach Brian Lee said, “We’ve seen that ‘Wildcat’ package from them, but then when they went to exclusive to it…a lot of things we’d been practicing got thrown out and I think it caught our guys off a little.”

The Warriors, as they have all season, struggled to finish drives. Junior quarterback John DeLuca hit Leo Munafo for 32 yards and moved KP into the red zone, but the Attleboro defense held strong and forced a turnover on downs.

KP had a chance after a very short Attleboro punt, but Sean Donnelly recovered a fumble by DeLuca to end the drive at the Bombardiers 23. On the next KP possession, DeLuca was intercepted by Ethan Dubeau at the Warriors 34.

“Normally our turnovers are completely flipped,” said Lee. “I don’t think we had an interception all year and we are not used to fumbling but we put the ball on the ground three times last week and I think maybe three times tonight. It’s disheartening.”

The Bombardiers took advantage of the turnover to add to the lead before halftime. After an incomplete pass and a seven-yard carry by John Burns, Furtado hooked up with Silva on a deep slant for a 27-yard score. The conversion was no good for the second time and Attleboro went into the locker room leading 19-0.

“We broke tackles, Cam made plays, and it was really important to get off the right way for us,” Strachan remarked. “Then we came back out and went right back down the field after they had scored, so we answered them.”

KP came out of the break and put together a time-consuming march down the field. Starting from its own 33, KP used 17 plays and 9:53 off the clock but again it stalled inside the Attleboro 10. DeLuca (17-29, 158 yards) was unable to hit R.J. McCarthy on fourth and goal from the five to give the ball back to the Bombardiers.

The defense forced a three and out and got the ball back at the Attleboro 32. Finally, KP was able to capitalize. DeLuca hit Munafo for 11 yards and had a 15-yard scramble before junior Giovanni Fernandez capped the drive with a three-yard dive that made it 19-7.

Attleboro responded on its next drive. The Bombardiers went 61 yards in eight plays to restore the three-score lead. Furtado again found Silva on the big play of the drive, a 27-yard pass to the near sideline that got the ball down to the 23. Nunes punched it in from five yards out for his first rushing TD of the game.

KP was not finished. The Warriors went on another long drive, this time using 11 plays but less than two minutes. DeLuca was 7-8 on the drive and also had three carries for 22 yards. He hit McCarthy for a 10-yard TD and scrambled to find Munafo for the two-point conversion to make it 25-15 with 51 seconds left.

Strachan said, “I was worried about it because they can make plays. Their quarterback is a special kid and he’s a hard runner. We were a little too loose and we’ll learn from that.”

The Warriors recovered the onside kick, which DeLuca seemed frustrated by when he first hit it but somehow the ball slowly edged past the 10 yards necessary for KP to jump on it. Kyle Murphy and Owen McKenna effectively ended the game with a 12-yard sack of DeLuca, who ended the game with a pair of bombs that dropped incomplete.

“And up front physically, very overwhelming that size, those trap blocks and how they get on you,” explained Lee. “They’ve got some dudes over there. I think that’s probably the most talented team we faced.”

Attleboro (3-3, 2-2) will try to continue building its resume for the postseason next week when it hosts Franklin. KP (2-4, 2-2) still has a good chance of making the playoffs and can bolster that with a win against Taunton in the final game of the regular season.

Dominant Defensive Effort Boosts Rocketeers Again

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – There’s really no other way to put it — North Attleboro’s defense is very good.
Just ask Stoughton, Bishop Feehan King Philip, Franklin and now, Attleboro.
The Rocketeers walked into Tozier-Cassidy Field at Attleboro High undefeated and walked out with a 14-0 shutout win over the rival Bombardiers.
Through five games this season, the Rocketeers have yet to allow more than one touchdown in any given game and only Feehan was able to put up two scores. The defense has allowed a measly 5.6 points per game now.
Unsurprisingly, it was the Rocketeers defense that got things started on both sides of the ball.
After the teams traded punts, Attleboro took over in North Attleboro territory. Facing a 1st and 16 from the 43 yard line, junior quarterback Tyler McGovern dropped back and fired a pass but North Attleboro senior Patrick Johnson read the play the entire way. Johnson stepped in front of the pass and intercepted it in stride and raced 65 yards untouched for a touchdown. Connor Flynn’s extra point was good giving North Attleboro a 7-0 lead with 6:32 left in the first quarter.
It was the fourth pick six for the Rocketeers through five games this year and Johnson was the third different player to do so.
“I think our guys up front have to get some credit,” North Attleboro head coach Don Johnson said of the secondary’s success thus far. “I think we’ve done a good job of pressuring quarterbacks all year and forcing some quick throws. We’ve got a pretty smart group out there in our secondary so that helps.”
North Attleboro’s defense didn’t rest there and came right back out with a big stand. Attleboro gained three yards on first down on the ensuing drive but couldn’t move the ball on the next two and were forced to punt for the second time of the game.

The Rocketeers offense then went to work with its most efficient drive of the game. On first down, junior Bobby Mylod (seven carries, 54 yards) raced up the left side for 24 yards and a first down. Sophomore quarterback Chad Peterson (8/12, 66 yards) kept it on the next play for four more and on second down, Nick Rajotte (three carries, 38 yards) came across to the right side and scampered for a 30 yard touchdown. Flynn’s extra point was good, giving the Rocketeers a 14-0 lead with 4:17 left in the first quarter.
Although it looked like the floodgates might open for the Rocketeers, neither North Attleboro or Attleboro was able to tack anymore points onto the scoreboard.
Attleboro senior Kyle Murphy put a stop to North’s next drive, dropping Mylod for a four yard loss on third and short but the Bombardiers went four and out. The Rocketeers moved the ball but couldn’t covert a 3rd and six and gave the ball back to Attleboro.
McGovern hit sophomore Cam Furtado for 15 yards on first down to get the drive going but a rush for no gain and then a false start put Attleboro in a hole. On 3rd and 15, North Attleboro’s Brodey Barr broke up a pass to set up a punt. Instead of a long punt, North Attleboro’s Davon Andrade broke through and blocked the punt. Junior Tom Reynolds was able to haul in the ball in the air and North took over at the Attleboro 32 yard line.
North converted a 4th and 2 when Peterson connected with Barr over the middle for 20 yards, setting up 1st and goal from the 5 yard line but there was only five seconds left in the half. The Rocketeers elected to run a play but a low pass fell incomplete and the final seconds of the first half ticked off.
“We’re struggling a little bit to finish drives so we’re making things a little more difficult on ourselves,” Johnson said. “We’re getting better. I think we moved the ball on the ground as well as we have all year tonight, I think it was the most yardage all year. We just have to be better at finishing. We took a chance at the end of the half, we thought we had enough time for the play and the field goal. Maybe if there wasn’t some indecision on if it was a catch maybe there’s a second. We’re getting there. Thankfully the defense is playing well and keeping us in these close games.”

Attleboro came up with a big stop to open the second half as North Attleboro attempted to go for it on 4th and 1 but Matt Mahoney jumped in and stopped the play in the backfield. The Bombardiers came out and went with Furtado as the quarterback of the second half and moved the ball the most efficiently all night.
Furtado used quarterback runs on the first three downs to get a first down and then floated one that senior Alex Silva went up and grabbed for a 25 yard gain inside the red zone. But the momentum would stop there.
Furtado rushed for three yards but Reynolds and Nicholas Thorpe stopped Furtado for no gain on second down. An incomplete pass set up 4th and 7 from the 16 and Furtado tossed one to the end zone but it was over the head of Brendan Nunes and the Bombardiers turned it over on downs.
The Rocketeers were able to kill a lot of clock on the next drive, moving the ball 65 yards on 13 plays. Peterson’s (four rushes, 25 yards) eight yard gain was followed by backup quarterback Kyle McCarthy (six rushes, 21 yards) coming in for a rush of nine yards. Peterson hit Ridge Olsen on back to back plays for 11 yards each time and, after a six yard rush from Nick Morrison (16 carries, 86 yards), Peterson hit Olsen for six more yards and a first down. Rushes from Rajotte and McCarthy combined for 17 yards but after an incompletion and a short gain, North faced 3rd and 7.
Thats when Owen McKenna came crashing in, sacking Peterson for a 5 yard loss. Flynn attempted a 36 yard field goal but it came up short.
Attleboro had to punt once again after going four and out but the defense held and got the ball back four plays later. On 3rd and 10, Attleboro moved forward via a hands to the face call. Nick Morrison came in for a sack on the next play but two plays later, McGovern hit Silva down the right side for 36 yards to the 10 yard line.
But once again, it was North Attleboro’s defense that came up big. Two incompletions were followed by a sack from Andrade, and on fourth and goal from the 27 yard line, the pass fell incomplete. North Attleboro was able to run the clock out the rest of the way.
Attleboro’s quarterbacks combined for just five completions on 21 attempts, which is a combination of a strong secondary and the players up front for North Attleboro.
“It allows us to man up and then we can bring more people if you’re matched up man to man,” Johnson said of having a strong secondary. “Sometimes you don’t have that luxury because you have some mismatches out there. Brodey gives us some length out there too.”
North Attleboro finished with nearly triple the yards in the game (282-100) and just under triple the first downs (15-6).
“We just couldn’t get into a rhythm,” Attleboro head coach Mike Strachan said. “We fought though, this was a tough game up front, it was really a battle up front all day long. We just couldn’t get anything going. Offensively we have to look at the film and see what we can improve on. Next week becomes a huge game for us, really the playoffs start for us next week.
“We have to learn from these games.”
North Attleboro is now 5-0 overall and have the lead in the Kelley-Rex division at 3-0. The Rocketeers will look to continue its strong start next week when they host Taunton. Attleboro (2-3, 1-2) will look to bounce back when they take a trip to King Philip (2-1, 2-3) next Friday night.

Ferreira, Mansfield Pick Up 'Character' Road Win


By Ryan Lanigan, Editor-in-Chief
ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Ordinarily one single punt doesn’t get too much attention, let alone be the play of the game.
But Mansfield’s 9-8 win over Attleboro at Tozier-Cassidy was no ordinary game.
“This was a hard one to describe,” Mansfield head coach Mike Redding said.
Facing 4th and less than a yard at their own 43 with a one point lead and 1:12 left in the game, Redding had a choice to make.
With the way his defense had been playing, Attleboro’s big goal line defense on the other side of the ball, and full trust in his long snapper and punter…Redding elected to punt.
The decision worked out perfectly for the Hornets. Senior Connor Finerty’s snap was on the money and sophomore Hunter Ferreira booted a 50 yard punt. The kick eluded Attleboro’s return man and a kind bounce pushed the ball all the way to the Bombardiers’ 8 yard line.
Attleboro was forced to go 92 yards in one minute without any timeouts but the Hornets defense didn’t allow anything deep and the Bombardiers’ last second Hail Mary fell incomplete.
“The punt may have been the play of the game,” Redding said. “We really did not want to punt. You worry about the snap, them blocking it but then on the other side if you don’t get it, and [Attleboro] is big up front, you give them the ball on your own 43 with plenty of time. It was one of the plays of the night, the punt sailing, getting the bounce and now they have a 90 yard field. I think a lot of people were wondering if I should go for it but thank God we got the punt in and got yardage out of it.”
With Mansfield’s defense having allowed just one touchdown so far in the game, Redding was confident in his defense.
“We felt pretty good,” Redding said about his defense. “We had bent a little and they hit some short passes but they hadn’t got their run game going. They hadn’t gotten anything downfield and we have a pretty experienced secondary. Mark DeGirolamo, our defense coordinator, did a good job of mixing zone and man and blitzing. So we felt like it was better to give them a 70 yard field than a 40 yard field. We hadn’t run the ball that well and they went with their goal line defense, it looked even tougher to get that yard up inside. Fortunately the punt paid off.”
As good as Ferreira’s punt was at the end of the fourth quarter, the sophomore hauled in five catches for 127 yards, including a pair of big catches on each of Mansfield’s scoring drives.
“Unbelievable catches in traffic,” Redding said.
The first came on Mansfield’s second possession of the game. After Attleboro had an interception on the first series, Mansfield’s defense responded by getting the ball back when Attleboro could only get one yard on four plays.
The Hornets tried a little trickery on first down as junior Brian Lynch took the handoff but instead of heading up field, set his feet and launched a pass up field. The pass was a little under thrown and looked like Attleboro was going to come away with its second interception in as many series but Ferreira was able to leap and snag the ball away for a 29 yard catch.
Three runs got the Hornets inside the Attleboro 10-yard line but the Bombardiers defense came up with a big stop on third down. Diogo DeSousa drilled a 21-yard field goal with 4:34 left in the first quarter.
Attleboro’s offense didn’t take long to answer back. Midway through the drive and facing a 4th and 1 from Mansfield’ 34, Attleboro coach Mike Strachan went for it and this time quarterback Tyler McGovern pushed through the pile on the sneak for the first down. Two plays later, McGovern handed off to senior Brendan Nunes, who sprinted to the left side and then used a sweet cut back and hit an open lane for a 33 yard touchdown.
Instead of a traditional extra point, Attleboro lined up with their offensive line set up on the far right. With Mansfield trying to figure out the play, Cam Furtado took the snap and outraced defenders to the left for the two-point conversion to make it 8-3 with 59 seconds left in the first quarter.
Attleboro got possession back on the ensuing kickoff and Elijah Lewis’ chip shot down the near sideline was recovered by Furtado. But a penalty and a pair of negative plays, the latter an 11 yard sack from Tyrone Pascual, set Attleboro up for 3rd and 32.
The Hornets had a charge late in the first half, moving the ball all the way to the Attleboro 20-yard line but an interception on a lob pass into the end zone brought the first half to a close.
The Bombardiers moved the ball close to the Mansfield red zone to open the second half but a pair of pass break ups by the Hornets’ secondary put a stop to it. On first down, McGovern’s pass was broken up by Connor Driscoll in the end zone. On 3rd and 7, Joe Bukuras got his hand in the way of another pass. A holding call made it 4th and 17 and Mansfield was able to come up with the stop.
The stop was key as Mansfield took their first possession of the second half all the way to the end zone for their lone touchdown of the game. A 16 yard rush from Nick Graham got things going.
Ferreira came up big once again for Mansfield. On 3rd and 11, Mansfield quarterback Anthony DeGirolamo eluded a would be tackler and stepped up into the pocket to fire 17 yard pass to Ferreira to keep the drive alive. Then on the next play, DeGirolamo floated one up to the sophomore. It looked as though Attleboro’s defense had position on the play but Ferreira seemingly climbed an invisible ladder and ripped the ball away for a 39 yard completion.
“I think Anthony really stepped up tonight, he made some big passes,” Redding said. “A couple of big third down conversions. I think on the field goal drive he hit one, and on the touchdown drive he hits one. If he doesn’t hit those, we may get shutout. So I think he took a big step forward in a game where we needed to hit some passes.”
Two plays later, Lynch punched it in for a two yard score. Mansfield’s two-point rush came up short to make it 9-8 with 2:51 left in the third.
Both teams trade punts before Attleboro got inside Mansfield’s 30 yard line on the next drive. Facing 4th and 18th, Strachan went for a field goal but the 45 yard attempt was short.
Mansfield punted it back and Attleboro once again made it into Hornet territory but four straight incompletions turns the ball over on downs. Mansfield’s next drive ended with Ferreira’s perfect punt.
“These are the games we have to build off of,” Strachan said. “Mansfield’s a very good program. They did a good job and I just thought we missed some opportunities out there. We’ll look at the film and look at what we left out there. We just have to build off of this.”
DeGirolamo finished 6/13 for 122 yards, Ferreira had five catches for 127 yards and Nick Graham had five carries for 45 yards and one catch for 18 yards. Attleboro’s McGovern was 17/35 for 197 yards, Brendan Nunes had 44 yards on 12 carries and Alex Silva had a game-high 10 catches for 129 yards.
With the win, Mansfield improves to 2-1 overall and 1-0 in Hockomock League Kelley-Rex Division play. Attleboro drops to 1-2 and 0-1 in the Kelley-Rex.
“This is a great win on the road,” Reading said. “I think [Attleboro] is a very good football team and they’re going to make a lot of noise. Just finding a way to win tonight was good for a young team that’s still in the process of maturing. This was a good character game, wasn’t a great execution game but a character win.”

Bombardiers Offense Sputters Against Dartmouth

ATTLEBORO, Mass. – Following a week in which it scored 55 points to bring home the Elks Trophy against crosstown rival Bishop Feehan, the Attleboro offense failed to ignite against defending Div. 3 state champion Dartmouth in a non-league game at Tozier-Cassidy Field on Friday night.

The Bombardiers defense did its part, limiting their former Old Colony League rival to just one touchdown and forcing three straight three and outs in the third quarter. But Attleboro turned the ball over four times and only reached the Dartmouth red zone once in the game, as the visitors pulled out a 10-0 win that evened both teams records at 1-1.

“Turnovers, you just can’t do it,” said Attleboro coach Mike Strachan. “Not in these games. It’s so tight, going back and forth, and we get field position then we turn the ball over.”

Attleboro was missing senior running back Brandon Nunes, the HockomockSports.com Player of the Week from week one, who was out with an ankle injury. Nunes accounted for four touchdowns against Feehan.

When asked how much his absence hurt, Strachan responded, “He’s explosive. We have to be able to bounce back from losing a Nunes or a senior leader…I give the credit to Dartmouth; they came to play and they took care of the ball.”

The teams traded punts on their first possessions of the game and Attleboro took over for its second try on offense in Dartmouth territory at the 49. Senior Brian Letourneau, who started in place of Nunes, converted on fourth and one to give Attleboro a first down at the Indians, but on the next play Tyler McGovern was picked off in the end zone by Matt Craig.

Cameron Furtado put a big hit on a Dartmouth receiver to put an end to the next Dartmouth drive and got the ball back on its own 36. Eight plays later, including a 20-yard hook-up between McGovern and senior Alex Silva, the Bombardiers faced second and five from the Dartmouth 11. A no gain by Letourneau was followed by a pair of passes that sailed out the end zone ending the drive.

The Indians took advantage of the Bombardiers failure to score. Dartmouth went on a drive that would eat up the rest of the time in the half as well as 74 yards. The Indians had the ball first and goal from the nine but Sean Donnelly stepped up and made a big play for a seven-yard loss.

On the 17th play of the drive, Dartmouth lined up a 32-yard field goal attempt. The Attleboro coaches called timeout just before the snap and watched as Kyle Sequeira’s kick sailed wide left. After the timeout, Sequeira’s second attempt was right down the middle for a 3-0 lead.

Dartmouth went three and out to start the third, but three plays later and after an Attleboro first down, Sean Smialek ripped the ball out of Letourneau’s hands and raced to the Bombardiers 20. Again, the defense stepped up to force a turnover on downs.

“I thought we bounced back from a week ago where we cleaned up a lot of things that we did,” said Strachan of his team’s defensive effort.

Senior lineman Kyle Murphy was a force on the line of scrimmage and was seemingly in every tackle, while also putting pressure on Dartmouth quarterback Cole Jacobsen. Senior Matt Mahoney also stepped up with big plays in the third quarter.

Strachan added, “I was really happy with the defense. That’s how we’re going to have to play when we hit the Hockomock League next week.”

Attleboro started to move the ball again on its next drive, but on third and two from its own 45, McGovern’s pass into the flat was deflected and intercepted by Craig again. The turnover did not prove costly, as the defense again held Dartmouth to three and out.

“We have to learn from this,” said Strachan. “You can’t turn the ball over and have expectations too high.”

On its first possession of the fourth quarter, Dartmouth took over at its own 19. The Indians would go 81 yards on nine plays to ice the game, highlighted by a 23-yard keeper by Jacobsen who also finished the drive with a three-yard run.

The defense thought it may have kept hope alive for Attleboro in the final few minutes by making one more big stand, but the ensuing punt was muffed and recovered by the Indians to run out the clock.

Attleboro will now turn its sights to Mansfield and the start of Hockomock League play next Friday at home. Strachan knows the challenges continue to grow for the Bombardiers.

“They’re such good programs,” he explained. “It really comes back to practice and getting things into the game plan that we need to execute.”
