The Bulldogs couldn't find the net Wednesday night at Gallo Arena in Bourne
The Canton hockey team ended its season Wednesday night. The top-seeded Bulldogs were shutout, 2-0 against No. 4 Oliver Ames in the South Sectional Semi-Finals. Thankfully for OA, sophomore Jimmy Tierney was in net. "If I was younger, I’d stand on my head too and show you what he did," OA coach Jim Sullivan said. "That’s all I can say – that’s what he did. He stood on his head. He kept us in that game, as usual." Despite out-shooting OA, 36-24, Canton was unable to get the puck past Tierney once. Oliver Ames, on the other hand, found the net in the second period when senior defenseman Andrew Romans gave OA the lead with an assist from sophomore Tyler Provost. That was all the Tigers needed. "We had our chances and we just couldn’t bury …

Oliver Ames improved to 2-1 on the young season
It wasn't smooth sailing, but the Oliver Ames boys basketball team was able to scratch and claw its way to an important Davenport Division victory Friday night in its home opener. The Tigers caged the Bulldogs in the 50-41 victory, which proved to be a defensive battle from the beginning. "I thought defensively we were good all night," Oliver Ames coach Don Byron said. "They had only 20 points in the first half and came back with an equally good second half." OA's defense held the Bulldogs in check while the offense was able to pull away with enough points to win. The effort was well-rounded. Only one Tiger, sophomore Ryan Carney (11 points), finished the game with double-digits. Nick Cidado (9 pts) St. Claire Ryan (8 pts), Andrew Reardon…

Debating Stoughton High’s archrival—is it based on history and tradition or current match-ups?
Asked to name Stoughton High’s archrival, SHS football captains Kevin Richard, Brandon Alves and Andrew Paredes answered in unison: Oliver Ames. When asked the same question, girls’ basketball captains Chrystal Holland, Katherine Chlus and Jackie Kuhn replied with the same—the Tigers. “It’s just a team we’ve wanted to go after all season,” Richard said. “It’s always a big game,” said Kuhn, a field hockey, basketball and softball player, of when Stoughton goes up against OA. But then there’s Canton, which has a decades-old rivalry with Stoughton, which is centered around the annual Thanksgiving Day football game, a tradition that dates back to 1926. Senior boys don’t dress up like girls and perform cheer routines at a pep rally and senior …

Canton High Bulldogs beat Oliver Ames Tigers 27-21.
From the opening kickoff, the Canton High School football team was just one step faster than Oliver Ames Friday night at Muscato Stadium. Thanks to senior quarterback Anthony Bires’ three-touchdown night (two rushing, one passing) a relentless running game featuring Dexter Green and Elias Camacho and an opportunistic defense that forced three turnovers, the Bulldogs put a dent in the Tigers’ Davenport Division hopes with their 27-21 victory and earned their first Hockomock League win of 2011. “I think we have just turned a corner,” said first year Canton coach Dave Bohane, whose team improved to 3-5 on the season (1-5 Hock, 1-2 Davenport). “Our offense is kind of syncing in a little bit with a first year staff and it showed tonight.” …
