NORTH ATTLEBORO, Mass. – It should be no surprise that a battle between two of the top teams in the Hockomock League came down to just a handful of big plays.

North Attleboro ended up on the fortunate side of the final big play, holding on for a close 14-13 win over visiting Foxboro to take sole place of the Davenport division with two games to play.

It looked as though the Rocketeers had a chance to finish the game when Mario Bresko came up with an interception with 2:57 to play and a seven point lead. But Foxboro’s no-quit attitude helped the Warriors force a quick three and out and get the ball back with 2:20 to play.

Starting at the North Attleboro 35-yard line, Foxboro quickly moved into the red zone. A pass from Devin Hassett (9/17, 88 yards, two touchdowns) to Jack O’Donnell and a QB keeper moved the chains. Hassett found O’Donnell for 10-yards and then Anthony Capachietti (14 carries, 65 yards) moved the chains again with a seven-yard burst.

Facing third and goal from the five, the snap was bobbled and North Attleboro’s Sam Bullock and Geoff Wilson swarmed for an eight-yard sack. The Warriors had just one play left – 4th and goal from the 13-yard line – with 18 seconds to play.

Hassett fired over the middle, connecting with O’Donnell on the slant. It looked as though North had him stopped just before the goal line, but the senior dove forward, stretching out the ball across the goal line for a touchdown to make it 14-13 with 0:10 to play.

However, Foxboro’s connection between snap and hold was just off, forcing the extra point kick to be low and into the line, giving the Rocketeers a one-point win.

“I’m really proud of the effort of the kids,” said North Attleboro head coach Don Johnson. “We hung tough and made some plays. But I’m not sure if I’m ready to call us good yet, that was your word. Foxboro was a good team though, I know that.

“I think on both sides of the ball we just had a lot of kids who hung tough and didn’t crumble under the pressure. They worked their asses off, some of those guys playing both ways, especially inside. They hung tough and didn’t give it an inch.”

North Attleboro took the lead on the possession prior to Bresko’s interception. It was the second time that the Rocketeers ran 10-plays in a series (the other time was in the second quarter that also resulted in a touchdown). This series was the longest drive of the game for Big Red, spanning 73-yards.

It looked as though the drive was going to stall early when Foxboro’s Martin McElroy blew up a second down run. Facing 3rd and 13 from their own 24-yard line, North quarterback Chad Peterson (9/11, 110 yards, two touchdowns) was flanked out to the right and hit Brendan McHugh (16 carries, 54 yards, four receptions, 76 yards) right at the first down marker to move the chains.

McHugh then rattled off runs of seven, four and nine yards before Nick Raneri (11 carries, 36 yards) moved the chains with a three-yard burst up the middle. Three plays later, North was faced with 3rd and six at the 36-yard line.

Peterson dropped back to pass, firing to his left as McHugh came towards him. Nolan Buckley, who was lined up in the slot, turned out wide to start and then came up with a perfectly timed block when McHugh hauled in the pass. The junior was able to break a tackle up field and scampered his way for a 36-yard score. Wilson’s extra point made it 14-7 with 4:43 to play.

Foxboro had a strong start to the game. They forced a turnover on downs when North Attleboro’s fake punt from its own 40-yard line fell incomplete. Seven plays later, the Warriors were in the end zone when Hassett hit Jake Addeche (four receptions, 35 yards) on a seam route up the middle for a 14-yard touchdown and a 7-0 lead.

North Attleboro tied the game on its first drive of the second quarter. The drive spanned 61 yards on 10 plays, with the Rocketeers getting into the end zone with less than a minute to play in the first half. On second and goal from the seven, Peterson hit Raneri out of the backfield and he muscled his way into the end zone to make it 7-7.

Big Red’s defense was at its best in the second and third quarters, forcing Foxboro to punt on all four of its drives in those two quarters. Foxboro had moved towards the red zone but on second down, Zach DeMattio and Jason McNeany forced a 10-yard loss on a sack and the Warriors had to punt two downs later.

In an early drive in the fourth quarter, Foxboro had a second down at the North 30-yard line, but Bullock’s sack dropped the Warriors back 15-yards. Pressure from Adam Eberle and Wilson on third down forced an incompletion and Foxboro once again had to punt.

“I think the defense really stepped up and did a good job,” Johnson said. “But even when you think you have them buried on that third or fourth down, they stepped up to make a play, they have some good players.”

North also had an early third quarter drive stalled when Addeche and Louis Piccolo forced a fumble after a completion. Big Red had to punt on its next drive as well after getting just two yards in three plays.

“We had a hard time handling Foxboro up front,” Johnson said. “We had a lot of negative yards or negative plays in the run game. They really crowded the line scrimmage, they were flying to the football and just matching up man-to-man with everybody else. That’s a situation where you have to get a body on a body and block everybody and we were losing some one-on-one battles.”

North Attleboro football (4-1 overall, 3-0 Davenport) now moves into a position to clinch a league share with a win next week when it travels to Stonehill College to take on Stoughton. The Rocketeers have a chance to clinch a share of their third straight league title. The last time North Attleboro did that was 1997-1999.

“We made a reference that a win tonight would put us in the position to be playing for a share of a championship.

“[A three-peat] hasn’t happened too many times so there is a lot of incentive there. The problem is that the other team is pretty good too. I think Stoughton is going to be just like Foxboro, it’s going to be a battle.”

Foxboro (3-2, 2-1) will look to bounce back when it hits the road to take on Milford next Friday.

CANTON, Mass. – Foxboro head coach Jack Martinelli has been coaching for decades, but the finish to Thursday night’s 27-21 overtime win against Canton was a first.

Canton and Foxboro each scored a pair of touchdowns in the final 9:11 of play, sending the game to overtime for the second straight year.

Canton got the ball first but Foxboro’s Jake Addeche came up with an interception in the end zone on a third-down throw, giving the Warriors the ball.

Foxboro’s offense trotted on the field, gaining a total of four yards on the ground on its first two plays. The Warriors then sent out its field goal unit on third down. That’s when a bit of controversy took center stage.

The Bulldogs’ coaching staff was quick to protest, claiming the referees had told them that kicking wasn’t allowed in the overtime. A 15-minute plus discussion between refs, coaches and school administrators followed.

That conversation resulted in Foxboro not being allowed to kick a field goal either. The Warriors then sent the offensive unit back out, and on the first play, senior Devin Hassett (12/21, 140 yards) hit classmate Jack O’Donnell (five catches, 78 catches, 2 touchdowns) in the corner of the end zone for a six-yard touchdown and the win.

“He was doing it most of the night when we needed it,” Martinelli said of the decision to throw to O’Donnell. “So you have to go to your best guy there. Devin delivered and [O’Donnell] made a great catch. We had run a couple of slants so we went outside.”

The overtime period put an exclamation point on what was a wild and entertaining fourth quarter.

“They have a lot more ice water in their veins than I do I guess. It was a heck of a game,” Martinelli said. “I knew Canton would be tough, I knew they’d be tough. And I kind of thought it would be a trap game for us. That game could have gone either way.”

Canton head coach Dave Bohane said he not only asked once, but double checked with both the head ref and sideline ref about the field goal rule.

“Give [Foxboro] credit, they made the play at the end,” Bohane said. “I would have run on third down and then kicked it if we knew we could have.”

After a scoreless first quarter that saw three turnovers – two from the Warriors and one from Canton – Foxboro finally opened the scoring late in the second quarter. Facing a 3rd and 12 from the Canton 29 yard line, Hassett floated one down the right sideline that O’Donnell hauled in for a 26-yard catch.

Two plays later, Foxboro’s Mike Henri took the carry up the middle for a 5-yard touchdown. After the missed extra point, the Warriors held a 6-0 lead with 3:13 left in the first half.

Both teams had their next offensive series cut short as Foxboro forced a fumble but the Bulldogs came back and picked up their second interception of the game, this one in the hands of Marquise Montes.

Canton started the second half with a big stop, forcing a three-and-out from Foxboro’s offense. After 18 yards from sophomore Kyle Fitzgerald on two carries, senior Alec Ragusa (14 carries, 129 yards, TD) broke free and rumbled his way for a 59-yard touchdown. Owen Lehane’s extra point put the Dogs up, 7-6, with 6:43 left in the third quarter.

Foxboro strung together its longest series of the day, using 15 plays to cover 64 yards to re-take the lead. Hassett hit O’Donnell for 24-yards early on in the drive, one again for nine yards on a third down, and then on a slant route into the end zone for a 13-yard score. Hassett then hit O’Donnell for the two-point conversion and a 14-7 lead with 9:11 to play.

“Offensively in the second half, we did some good things,” Martinelli said. “First half we had opportunities and didn’t capitalize. We played better defense in the first half than we did in the second half but that’s credit to Ragusa and what they run for an offense.”

Canton came marching right back, moving the ball down field behind first down runs from Ragusa twice and sophomore Gersom Rivera (10 carries, 81 yards) once. Facing 4th and 2 from the 11, Canton quarterback Johnny Hagan floated one into the corner of the end zone where Tony Harris drew a pass interference call.

That put the ball on the two-yard line, and Fitzgerald took the sweep up the middle and into the end zone to tie the game with 4:54 left to play.

The score didn’t stay level for long. A nice kick return from Addeche (three returns, 32.3 average yards per return) set Foxboro at their own 38-yard line. On 2nd and 1, Hassett used a QB option to keep it himself, racing 52 yards down the left sideline before being pushed out at the one-yard line.

Two plays later, Hassett kept it himself and went in from one-yard out to make it 21-14 with 2:29 left.

But once again, Canton had a response. Two plays into the ensuing drive, Hagan hit Harris over the middle and the senior turned on the jets, racing 70 yards for a touchdown to tie it 21-21 with 2:01 left.

“These kids are resilient,” Bohane said. “They are young but they are playing hard. We needed this one, but so did Foxboro. The plays we made at the end, to get us into overtime, were amazing. But these kids have been phenomenal, I’ve loved coaching them so far this year.”

Foxboro moved back into scoring position in the final minute. With 12 seconds left, and no timeouts, the Warriors took a shot at the end zone but Canton’s Cordel Smith came up with an interception at the goal line and his return killed off the final seconds of the clock of regulation.

Foxboro football (3-1 overall, 2-0 Hockomock) returns to action next Friday night with a trip to Community Field to take on North Attleboro. Canton (1-3, 0-2) will try to bounce back when they take on Stoughton at Stonehill College at 7:30.
