Shawsheen Tech Rams batter their way to 17th consecutive Thanksgiving win

TYNGSBORO – When it comes to the Shawsheen Tech Rams’ success in the Collins Cup against the Greater Lowell Tech Gryphons, “domination” may be putting it lightly.

For the 17th consecutive year, the Rams (8-3) took home the Collins Cup after a 36-6 victory over the Gryphons (5-6) at Greater Lowell Tech.

Rams quarterback Cody Sughrue took home game MVP honors in his final regular season game. He completed seven of 13 passes for 165 yards and three touchdowns, rushed three times for 46 yards and a touchdown, and picked off a Greater Lowell pass on the Gryphons’ first drive of the game.

The Rams’ defense was phenomenal, holding the Gryphons to just 92 yards of offense, including -27 yards in the first quarter.

After a sloppy first quarter by both teams, the Rams opened the scoring on the first play of the second quarter as Sughrue found Josiah Martinez for a 44-yard touchdown pass.

It would be the first of five consecutive scores by the Gryphons and four consecutive scores that Sughrue had a hand in. He scored the next touchdown on a four-yard rush after he could not find an open receiver, and finished the first half with a 15-yard touchdown strike to Brendan Studley. The score was 20-0 Rams at halftime.

“We just hoped we got it all out of our system, and I think we did,” Shawsheen head coach Al Costabile said about the turnaround in the second quarter.

“We like to make our mistakes early in the game and then get settled in,” Sughrue added.



The Rams wasted no time getting to the end zone in the second half, as they needed just two plays to go 65 yards, 63 of which came on a touchdown pass from Sughrue to Sam Baker (two receptions, 99 yards).

“I’m going to remember this for the rest of my life, because you only go through high school once,” Sughrue said.

The last Rams score came on a 23-yard touchdown rush at the end of the third quarter by Omar Eldaly.

The Gryphons’ lone score came in the fourth quarter on a 31-yard touchdown rush by Juan Serrano (seven carries, 57 yards).

Sughrue’s career – and the Rams’ season – is not over, however. They will host Assabet Valley in the State Vocational Championship Thursday night at 7 p.m. Coach Costabile had nothing but high praise for the Aztecs.

“They’re a great football team,” Costabile lauded. “Very well coached, winning tradition, great program, we’re going up against a formidable opponent.”

MIAA Football: Special teams pave way for G-D win over Westborough

GROTON – It’s not often that the punting unit ends up being the deciding factor in a tightly-contested ballgame.

But that’s exactly what happened Thursday night as Groton-Dunstable Crusaders punter Kyle Battles and his coverage team forced three muffed punts that led to 14 G-D points and a 20-13 victory over the Westborough Rangers at G-DRHS.

The win evened the Crusaders’ record at 2-2, while the Rangers fell to 1-3.

After falling behind 7-0 with 4:03 left in the first quarter and failing to convert on a 3rd-and-17, Battles let off a booming punt that glanced off the Westborough return man, unbeknownst to him. The Crusaders coverage team pounced on the ball, and after discussion by the officials, they retained possession. This led to a 19-yard touchdown pass from Bradley teDuits (11-of-13, 127 yards) to Tristan Naboicheck, tying the game at 7.

On their next drive, the Crusaders got the eventual winning score as teDuits lofted a 37-yard jump ball to Sam Battles, who skied over his defender in the corner of the end zone to make it 14-7.

Kyle Battles and the Crusader punt team struck again shortly before halftime. After their offense was knocked back three yards on 3rd-and-1, Battles spotted a punt perfectly at the Westborough 1-yard line, which they again failed to field cleanly, leading to a recovery and a one-yard score by Shamus Gelinas.

Michael Keogh led the Rangers offense with 11 carries for 95 yards and both Ranger touchdowns. He and fellow running backs Martin Moran and Jacob Clancy had to shoulder the load as the Crusader defense held quarterback Peter Lamountain to 5-of-11 passing for 52 yards and a one-handed interception by G-D’s Tim Stark.

G-D head coach Tom Sousa was relieved to finally have a competitive game after being shut out by 40+ points in two of their first three games and winning 42-8 over North Middlesex in between.

“It was a gritty win,” Sousa said. “It wasn’t pretty in any way, but we had to battle, and we got that done. That’s a win we can definitely feel good about.”
