A recap of Thanksgiving football action in the Hockomock League.
If anything, Thanksgiving once again proved how exciting and unpredictable the Hockomock League can be. The League's two playoff teams both lost; Stoughton and Mansfield's long Thanksgiving win streaks were snapped, while Oliver Ames extended its streak; the King Philip/Franklin and Stoughton/Canton games came down to the wire, with the KP/Franklin game being decided in the final seconds, and with Stoughton/Canton being decided in overtime, and Foxborough orchestrated a second-half comeback vs. Mansfield. The other games were blowouts. Thanksgiving marked the end of the season for nine of the teams in the league, but Mansfield (Division 2) and Sharon (Division 3) will head to the postseason, playing in a semifinal game Tuesday night, …

The Black Knights football team traveled to Canton and beat the Bulldogs for the seventh consecutive year on Thanksgiving.
Stoughton junior Aaron Mack had four touchdowns and the Black Knight defense turned in one of its best efforts of the season as the Stoughton High football team beat Canton High School, 27-7, Thanksgiving morning in Canton. The win marked Stoughton’s seventh straight Thanksgiving victory over Canton and the 15th in the last 17 years. During this current seven-year win streak, which dates back to 2005, Stoughton has outscored Canton 229-35. With the win, Stoughton takes a 43-39-4 lead in the all-time series, which dates back to 1926. Unfortunately for Stoughton, Sharon fell to Oliver Ames 34-8 in Sharon.

The Bulldogs score a 28-24 win at Stoughton in the annual Wednesday before Thanksgiving flag football game between senior girls in Canton and Stoughton. The ending of the game was controversial, however.
In what can only be described as a controversial ending, at least from a Stoughton perspective, the Canton High senior girls beat the Stoughton senior girls, 28-24, in Wednesday's annual Powderpuff Football Game. Stoughton played host to this year’s game—which went down to the final play, with the two team’s combining for three touchdowns in the final four minutes of action. Stoughton trailed 22-12 late in the second half, but with 3:37 left, Alicia Macomber broke a 50-yard touchdown run, bringing the Black Knights within four. On the ensuing Canton drive, the Bulldogs converted a fourth and 12 with less than two minutes to play. The first down would have likely sealed the deal for Canton, but the Bulldogs fumbled at the end of the run, …
