Canton's lady Bulldogs beat Sharon yesterday.
The first meeting between the Sharon and Canton high school varsity girls basketball teams ended in a host Bulldogs 43-42 overtime win. Canton won, 57-53, against Sharon High Tuesday night. Sharon opened the game with a 14-4 run, and then lost its rhythm. Canton held the Eagles to less than 10 points in both the second and fourth quarters. "I think what happens is we don't box out, and we weren't helping," Sharon Head Coach Kate Horsmann said. "We got some rebounds and we came down and we didn't run good offense. We were helter-skelter on our offense. We didn't get good looks." Sharon looked poised to win early in the fourth quarter. The Eagles led 44-40 entering the period and then sophomore guard Lily Abarbanel scored, increasing the …

The Bulldogs are ready to play this season.
Canton High School football holds a long and proud tradition. In the late 70s and 80s the Bulldogs dominated most of their opposition and even made Superbowl appearances. In the past decade, the team has had mostly losing seasons, has gone through several coaches and has suffered in the Hockomock League which is one of the toughest in the state. However, a program’s value cannot just be measured with wins and losses and that is why Canton football is still very-well respected. With obstacles including low numbers, high expenses and such a small school, the football team battles every week to the best of its ability and more importantly, with the respect of its opponents. This season, there are no guarantees of a Division title or winning …

Canton did lose in the state finals to a powerhouse Concord-Carlisle team, but it didn’t take away from the team’s incredible accomplishments that included the regular season Hockomock Davenport Division championship, the First Annual Classic Cup Title, The South Sectional title and the Hockomock League Sportsmanship Award, which …
