NORTH EASTON, Mass. – With a chance to secure a home playoff game, Mansfield was able to execute in all facets of the game in a convincing 41-6 win over Oliver Ames on Saturday. It was the first meeting between the two teams since 2011.

After having to punt on the opening drive, the Hornets scored a touchdown on the next three series, and then three of the next five to get the win and in all likelihood, lock up the fourth seed in the Division 1A South.

“The big thing is to keep playing at a high level,” Mansfield head coach Mike Redding said. “We played well last week. We wanted to get out of this healthy and get the home – I think we did everything we wanted to. I think we secured a home game, we’ll see how the math works out but I think we have some confidence and momentum going into the playoffs.

“I think we’ll have everyone back and it looks good for Brian Lynch next week so we become a very tough out going into the playoffs. We’re healthy, and with our full group we’re pretty good on both sides of the ball.”

Both the Hornets and the Tigers had to punt on the opening drive but Mansfield made quick work of its second offensive series. A 15 yard pass from Anthony DeGirolamo (6/11, 100 yards) to Hunter Ferreira (two catches, 31 yards) preceded an 18 yard run from Nick Graham (five carries, 47 yards).

On the third play of the drive, DeGirolamo found Mike Shannon up the middle for a 33 yard touchdown. A high snap forced DeGirolamo to attempt a pass for a two-point conversion but the catch was deemed out of bounds, giving Mansfield a 6-0 lead.

Oliver Ames’ next five drives resulted in a turnover on downs and four punts.

On Mansfield’s third drive, Joe Cox (77 yards) busted free for a 28 yard gain on the first play. On the second play, Graham went nearly untouched through the right side for a 22 yard score and a 13-0 lead.

The Hornets used their longest drive of the game, spanning the end of the first quarter and beginning of the second quarter to get their third touchdown. Mansfield used seven plays to cover 76 yards to expand its advantage over the Tigers. Highlighted by DeGirolamo completions to Kristian Conner (13 yards) and Ferreira (16 yards) and a 26 yard rush from Will Garvin, Mansfield pushed the lead to 20-0.

DeGirolamo used an option on a jet sweep to take it in himself for a 12 yard score.

Mansfield added two more touchdowns before the first half came to a close. Cox rattled off a 49 yard touchdown run with 3:35 left in the second quarter and then DeGirolamo found sophomore Aidan Sacco for a 14 yard score with just over 30 seconds to play in the half.

Oliver Ames had its best drive of the game to open the second half. Sophomore Anthony Berksza (163 all-purpose yards) got things started with a 54 yard kickoff return and then hauled in a 32 yard pass from Kyle Gagliardi to help the Tigers move the ball up the field. Liston Funai punched it in from a yard out for OA’s touchdown and Berksza fought his way in for a two-point conversion.

The Hornets’ final touchdown came in the third quarter with Sacco running it in from 12 yards out.

“Even at 5-1, I think we’re the four seed. If Milton beats Wellesley we could be the three seed so still a lot of division and math to go,” Redding said. Wellesley ended up beating Milton later in the day. “But we’re in, and I think we’re home. We could get Marshfield or B-R, which is a tough first round game. But it’s the playoffs, you’re not going to have any easy ones. I like the way we’re playing on both sides of the ball and our special teams are good. We just have to make it happen next Friday night.”

Mansfield, which is 5-2 overall, will likely host Marshfield next Friday based on The Boston Herald’s ratings. Official seeds and matchups will be announced by the MIAA on Sunday. Oliver Ames (2-5) will miss out on the playoffs and will find out their next opponents on Sunday as well.

WRENTHAM, Mass. – King Philip head coach Brian Lee would be the first to tell you the Warriors’ offense isn’t typically flashy, but in a crucial division showdown on the road at Mansfield, sometimes you need to add some flare.

Lee did just that, picking the perfect time to reach into KP’s bag of tricks. Trailing 17-14 with nine minutes to play in the game, quarterback Brendan Lyon tossed to his right to Sean Garrity, but instead of taking the ball around the edge, Garrity tossed it back to an oncoming John DeLuca on a reverse. DeLuca went on to break a couple of tackles downfield – one with the help of receiver Michael Mello – before finally being tackled at the 4 yard line – a 61 yard gain.

Two plays later, Lydon (3/10, 77 yards; 5 carries 17 yards) snuck it in from a yard out to put KP ahead.

The Warriors defense did its job, forcing a three and out on Mansfield’s ensuring drive and stopping the Hornets on fourth down with just over two minutes to play to secure a 20-17 win at Alumni Field.

“We’ve had it, we put it in the [playbook] a while ago but we were looking for the right moment to pull it out,” Lee said. “It’s a good play in concept but when John runs it, it becomes that much better of a play.”

The Hornets looked like they might pull back ahead on their final drive of the game. Anthony DeGirolamo connected with Hunter Ferreira for 24 yards on first down to move the ball to midfield. Two plays later, a double move from Ferreira put him open towards the end zone, but the throw just missed as Ferreira could only get one hand on the ball before it fell incomplete.

On fourth and 6 from their own 46, DeGirolamo dropped back to pass but the Warriors brought heavy pressure. Shane Frommer came from DeGirolamo’s right, forcing him to move in the pocket and Alex Olsen and Brett Mazur came crashing in for the sack and the turnover on downs.

KP converted a fourth and inches from the Mansfield 38 yard line with just over a minute to seal the win.

“Whenever you play Mansfield, it just always feels different,” Lee said. “I told the guys, when you come over there, you’re going to feel the difference. They hit harder, they run faster, they coach well. So you’re going to have to battle the entire time, there won’t be any runaways. I was pleased they were able to keep chopping like they did.”

After trading punts to open the game, DeGirolamo hit Will Garvin for a 27 yard gain to get inside the KP 10 yard line. The Warriors’ defense held on though and Mansfield settled for a 20-yard field goal from Diogo DeSousa to go up 3-0.

The Warriors forced Mansfield to punt on their next drive but King Philip senior Ethan Dunne came flying in untouched to block the kick. King Philip took over at the Mansfield 21 yard line.

It looked as though Mansfield’s defense had stopped KP despite the good field position, but the Warriors earned a defensive pass interference call on 4th and 19 from the 30 yard line. Two plays later, Lydon hit Garrity (15 carries, 58 yards) on a screen for a 25 yard touchdown and a 7-3 lead.

Mansfield worked up the field for a 44 yard field goal attempt just before halftime but it appeared the Warriors got a hand on the kick and it fell short.

“Just huge,” Lee said of the special teams plays. “We were struggling to move the ball on offense, we needed something positive to happen. We work a lot on special teams so to make plays like that…I think we blocked the field goal before the end of the half too. So two huge plays for us to turn it around.”

It didn’t take long for Mansfield to regain the lead in the second half, cashing in on its first drive. On just the third play, Hornet back Nick Graham (19 carries, 124 yards) got a nice block from fellow backJoe Cox, cut back into some space and sprinted for a 50 yard touchdown to put Mansfield up 10-7.

KP responded right away to tilt the game back in their favor. Lydon hit Dunne on third down for a big 39 yard gain. Four plays later, Olsen (8 carries, 27 yards) plunged up the middle for a 2 yard touchdown to make it 14-10 with 5:37 left in the third quarter.

The seesaw battle continued with Mansfield landing a counter punch on its next drive. Facing 3rd and 5 from their own 34, DeGirolamo (5/12, 132 yards) used play action and then found a wide open Ferreira (3 catches, 105 yards) in space for a 66 yard touchdown, making it 17-14 with 2:17 left in the third.

The Warriors started the fourth quarter with a big play, converting a 4th and 1 from their own 30 yard line with a Lydon sneak. Three plays later is when Lee elected to go with the reverse for DeLuca’s big run.

“We blitzed on the backside and ran by it, that was a good call,” Mansfield head coach Mike Redding said of the play. “They had run the toss the last three games. We were prepared for that, but they hadn’t shown the reverse. It was a great call at that point and DeLuca made a great run. We wrapped him up a couple of times but he broke away.”

The extra point following Lydon’s sneak was short, opening the door for Mansfield with a three point deficit and foot of DeSousa available.

But KP’s defense held Mansfield on the ensuing drive, forcing a punt. Mansfield’s defense did the same as the time ticked away in the fourth quarter. That set up Mansfield’s fourth down attempt that was shut down by Olsen and Mazur’s sack.

“We were having a hell of a time covering their guys,” Lee said of sending pressure on the fourth down. “You wonder if you should play soft. They have so many weapons; they could have run it on fourth down. We thought they’d pass, the guys got in there and made a huge play.”

“Alex is our emotional leader on defense, a captain on defense. He puts us in the right defense, he works really hard. He’s an old school hard-nosed kid. And then at the end, running the ball, those ugly looking dives.”

The win puts King Philip in the driver’s seat in the Kelley-Rex division. Although it was Mansfield’s second loss of the season, it was the first in terms of the playoff system.

“Now we have to bang out the next three and get ready for the playoffs. Maybe [KP] finishes the one seed and we finish the second seed and maybe we play again, maybe the finals or the semifinals. I think that’s the focus now. We have three games to bang out wins and then lined up ready to go.

“This thing could go on for three more days and I think it’d go back and forth – two very good high school teams. It’s a tough one to lose but with this new system we have a second life to get lined up for in November to make a run in the playoffs. I think us and them are two of the better teams in the division, we still have a lot to play for.”

King Philip football (4-0, 2-0) will return to Macktaz Field next Friday with a visit from Thanksgiving rival Franklin. Mansfield (2-2, 1-1) will take a trip to Aleixo Stadium to take on the Tigers on the same day.

Mansfield Jumps All Over Attleboro in Hock Opener

MANSFIELD, Mass. – The Hornets won the coin toss and elected to defer possession to the second half. With senior Diogo DeSousa kicking with the wind at his back, Mansfield coach Mike Redding knew that he could pin the Bombardiers deep in their own zone.

The strategy worked perfectly. Mansfield started all but two first half possessions in Attleboro territory and the two that started in the Hornets’ half of the field were at the 49 and the 48. Mansfield cashed in every time, scoring each of the first five times it touched the ball and cruised to a comprehensive 38-7 victory at Alumni Field in the league opener for both teams.

“Diogo with wind is going to get it in the end zone and we get three and outs, we get good field position, we get big plays early,” Redding explained. “They gave us a couple of breaks and we took advantage.”

After a three and out to start the game, Mansfield started its first possession at the Attleboro 40. Kristian Conner rushed for 15 yards to the left, Nick Graham went for 11 up the middle, and Will Garvin broke a 15-yard carry on a counter. Joe Cox capped the short drive with a one-yard plunge to put the Hornets on top.

Attleboro got off to a good start on its next possession with Tyler McGovern (7-16, 61 yards) hit James Weir down the seam for 21 yards. But on the next play, Cam Furtado had the ball ripped loose by Julio Arevalo who kept hold of it and returned the fumble 34 yards to the one. Anthony DeGirolamo scored on a QB sneak on the next play and it was 14-0.

“That was a big turnover for us,” Attleboro coach Mike Strachan admitted. “I think that was a big play in terms of momentum and it got kind of blustery there and it pinned us. We’ve got to regroup.”

Another three and out gave the Hornets the ball at their own 49. Four plays later, on fourth and three from the Attleboro 44, Graham took a toss sweep to the left and cut it back inside, finding a hole and taking it to the house for a 21-0, first quarter lead.

The mistakes continued for the Bombardiers with the next possession ending on a low snap that flew past McGovern and was recovered by Jareme Dilorenzo at the six. Two plays later, DeGirolamo hit Hunter Ferreira on the near sideline for a four-yard score.

“It was absolutely brutal for us,” Strachan said, “but we need to find a way as a team to fight through that adversity. We didn’t and they’re just that much more seasoned then us and we’re going to go through some growing pains.”

Ben Budwey returned an Attleboro punt 12 yards to the Bombardiers 27 where Mansfield started its fifth possession. Again the Hornets took advantage of the short field. Cox had two carries for 20 yards and Graham ended the drive with a seven-yard carry up the middle for his second touchdown of the game.

Redding credited the play of the offensive and defensive lines for the dominating performance.

“He’s just a one-man wrecking crew,” said Redding of Arevalo. “Andrew Ducharme, [Shayne] McCoyis playing great at d-end, the young kid [Colbey] Eason is playing well at tackle, [A.J.] Gibbs and [Colin] Gibbons are great guards and they’re just the hidden secret here on why we’re turning the corner.”

He also mentioned the play of Will Shield and Jayson Richwine on the line and Mike Shannon at tight end for creating the space for the playmakers.

Redding continued, “We do have good skill guys but they’re only as good as the guys in front of them. I think our guys on the O- and D-line are very underrated, not real big but tough and athletic. They’re playing really good football now.”

The Bombardiers tried to get back into the game in the second half. McGovern hit Weir again down the seam for 21 yards to the Mansfield 19. After a six-yard gain by Marc Dieu, McGovern hit Elvin Sam for a 13-yard touchdown. The ensuing kick bounced in front of the Hornets’ returner and was recovered by Malik Mcalister-Pruitt. The comeback ended on a turnover on downs at the Mansfield 19.

“They’re a good football team and they’re better than us,” said Strachan. “I think it’s that simple. In every aspect of the game, they came to play and they caught us early.

“We’ve got a lot of young kids who played tonight and it’s going to be that way for us the rest of the year… We just need to get better as the season goes on.”

DeSousa tacked on a 33-yard field goal in the fourth quarter to round out the scoring. Mansfield will head into next week’s showdown with King Philip clicking in all four phases and Redding was already thinking ahead to next Friday.

“We’ve got another huge one next week,” he said. “It won’t determine the league title but whoever wins is certainly in the driver’s seat moving forward. With North leaving the division, it’s kind of us and KP taking over as maybe one of the better rivalries.

“Buy a ticket early for next Friday. It should be a great atmosphere and a great game…As good as we’ve played, we need to bring our ‘A-plus’ game to stop King Philip.”

Mansfield football (2-1) will host King Philip (3-0), which beat Oliver Ames 42-6 on Friday, at Alumni Field next week. Attleboro (1-2) will look to end a two-game losing streak when it hosts Taunton (1-2).
