A recap of Week 7 football action in the Hockomock League.
Heading into week 7, it was fair to say King Philip and Stoughton, both undefeated, were the favorites in the Hockomock League's Kelly-Rex and Davenport Divisions, respectively. But after a crazy Saturday of Hockomock League football, filled with upsets and shootouts, new favorites have emerged. Canton had a week 7 bye, but all the other teams had division games, which meant all games had direct playoff implications. The division winners from the Davenport and Kelly-Rex advance to the postseason. In the Davenport, Stoughton fell at Sharon, 16-14, after Sean Asnes scored the game-winning touchdown with 11 seconds left. The win put Sharon in the Davenport driver's seat with a perfect 2-0 record. Stoughton is 1-1. Foxborough, meanwhile …
Oliver Ames (5-2, 0-1) struggled against Foxborough's strong rushing attack and defense Saturday in its Davenport Division opener.
FOXBOROUGH - Miscues plagued Oliver Ames (5-2, 0-1) Saturday in a frustrating, 27-6 loss to Davenport Division foe Foxborough (5-2, 1-1). Turnovers - OA had four – and penalties prevented Oliver Ames' offense from finding a rhythm Saturday against a strong Foxborough defense and the Tigers struggled to stop the Warriors' Kiivone Howard, who scored three rushing touchdowns and gained over 100 yards. Howard now has 15 scores through seven games this season. "[Foxborough] played tougher," said Oliver Ames head coach Jim Artz. "I said right from the start whoever runs the ball and whoever defends the ball best will win the game and we didn’t. We allowed them to take it to us running the ball and we didn’t make tackles at the point of attack." …

The Tigers took on a "smashmouth" persona and beat Pembroke in all three phases of the game in the 28-6 win
Oliver Ames football coach Jim Artz made a decision in the first half of Saturday's inter-league clash between the Tigers and the Pembroke Titans: Give the ball to senior captain St. Clair Ryan and let him follow his blockers. "The way that they were defending it, there were certain things that we saw that we liked and would give us some advantages," Artz said. "[Ryan] is gaining each week. He ran very good against a good Franklin team last week." Ryan's dominant performance Saturday helped OA earn a convincing win over Pembroke, 28-6 to improve to 4-1 overall (0-1 in the Hock). Pembroke dropped to 2-2 overall. Ryan finished the game with 155 yards rushing on 28 carries, with 2 touchdowns and 12 yards receiving. Thanks to the Tiger defense…

A recap of Week 4 football action in the Hockomock League.
Week 4 Recap Stoughton 25, Mansfield 6 Despite upsetting host Mansfield 8-0 last season, the pundits did not give Stoughton much of a chance in the rematch this year, but the Black Knight players didn't write their team off and came away with a dominating victory against Mansfield Friday in Stoughton.

For the first time in program history, the OA cheerleaders were invited to cheer at a college bowl game.
Success seems to be contagious at Muscato Stadium on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. After a historic football season in 2011 that ended in the program's first ever appearance in a Super Bowl at Gillette Stadium, the OA football squad isn't the only program making their mark on school history. With every snap, play call and touchdown; the OA cheerleaders have been on the sideline showing their Tiger pride. And, this December, they'll be the first group in school history to cheer at a college bowl game. "We’ve been working hard," senior captain Jacquey Gover said. "We came from not a very good reputation and we’ve been building it up. The Super Bowl definitely helped our team. The cheerleaders were there for all of it and the Shriner…
