Led by Caitlyn Abela's 24 points, OA got off to a hot start to the season
The Panthers didn't go down without a fight, but in the end the Oliver Ames girls' basketball team out-muscled, out shot, and out defended Franklin. The defending Davenport Division Champion Tigers won their season opener, 57-48 Friday night over the defending Kelley-Rex Division Champion Panthers at the Nixon Gymnasium in Easton. "The whole thing in a nutshell is we played good defense and we just did such a terrific job off the boards," Oliver Ames coach Elaine Clement-Holbrook said. "That’s what we’ve been talking about all week long is defense, rebounds and free-throws." The Tigers' transition game got them off to a running start, out-battling Franklin to start the game, taking a commanding 14-6 lead after one period, and 30-17 lead at…

Difficult Second Half For the Tigers Leads to Franklin Win.
The Oliver Ames football team got off to the perfect start at Pisini Field in Franklin Saturday night. After only 13 seconds, the Tigers had a 7-0 lead over the Panthers thanks to an 80-yard touchdown return by Jeremiah Troy on the game’s opening kick-off. However, OA would not score again until late in the fourth quarter and lost its opening league game 21-14. Oliver Ames dominated the first half, but failed to capitalize on several good scoring opportunities. St. Clair Ryan lost a fumble at the end of a 16-yard run that would have given the Tigers a first down at the Franklin 11. On its final drive of the half, OA got as close as the Franklin 18 before penalties pushed them back and forced long throws to the end zone. Following the …

The Tigers were out-shot, 40-13 in the loss.
For the second year in a row, Hockomock foe Franklin (18-2-3) knocked off the Oliver Ames hockey team (13-5-4) in the South Sectional Semi-Finals, ending the season for the Tigers. Franklin can thank two quick goals and a dominant first round for setting the tone in the 4-1 win. "I think we were a little over confident when we came out, but they just handed it right to us and we weren’t ready for it," Oliver Ames coach Jim Sullivan said. Franklin's Evan Stawarz, a senior, was assisted by senior Adam Hall with 5:28 left to play in the first period. A short time later, with 2:29 left, Senior Ryan Garland was assisted by freshman Justin Miller to make the score 2-0 after a period. Franklin was also able to hold the Tigers scoreless throughout…

OA wasn't able to avenge its lone loss of the season in the Hock-Crossover game Thursday.
The Lady Tigers just can't escape the Panthers. The Davenport Division Champion Oliver Ames girls' basketball team fell to the Kelley-Rex Champion Franklin Panthers Thursday in the Hockomock Crossover game, 61-56, at the Franklin Field House. OA (16-2) only has two losses on the year, both of which have been to 17-1 Franklin. "We’re used to getting out ahead with big leads and not having to scrap and claw so we have to pay more attention to that," OA Coach Elaine Clement-Holbrook said. "Thankfully, we have two more games to get in that mindset." The Tigers did get out to an early lead, but it wasn't nearly as big as they're used to. Thanks in part to a strong transition game and 10 points from forward Caitlyn Abela, OA led after the …

Mansfield, North Attleboro and King Philip all have a chance to advance.
It has been an exciting year for Hockomock League football and it will come down to the wire this Thanksgiving for both Kelley-Rex and Davenport Division teams. For the Kelley-Rex Division, three teams will have a chance to advance to the MIAA playoffs. King Philip, North Attleboro and Mansfield will all be in the mix. King Philip and North Attleboro will need to win their games against Franklin and Attleboro while Mansfield, which plays non-divisional Foxborough, will have to scoreboard watch. If both KP and North Attleboro win, there is a three-way tie. Because Mansfield has allowed the most points, the Hornets will be eliminated and King Philip will advance because of a head to head victory over North Attleboro. If North Attleboro loses…
