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, …

This Friday night, the 8-1 Black Knights travel to Bridgewater-Raynham, still considered one of the best in the state, despite a 5-4 record. Meanwhile, Foxborough and Sharon play Saturday in a game that could extend or end Stoughton's playoff hopes.
With the Stoughton High football team's 26-8 win against Attleboro last Friday at home, Stoughton Patch will look at some key factors contributing to the win and look ahead to this Friday's road contest against Bridgewater-Raynham (5-4) at 7 p.m. Stoughton is 8-1 heading into the game. 1.

A recap of Week 8 football action in the Hockomock League.
While one of the Hockomock League's divisions has a somewhat clear playoff picture, the other is chaotic and wide-open, of course setting up what should be a thrilling final three weeks of the season. After week 8, Sharon, Stoughton and Foxborough have the most realistic path to a Davenport Division (small schools) title and with it a Division 3 playoff berth. The division title is based on a team's four-game division record at season's end. At 2-0 in division play, Sharon is in the driver's seat and Stoughton and Foxborough, both at 2-1, are right behind. Sharon has a head to head win over Stoughton and Stoughton has a head to head win over Foxborough. Sharon and Foxborough play Nov. 10. With Mansfield and Franklin both losing in week 8…

The Stoughton High football team (5-0), playing in memory of teammate David Wade, a senior who tragically died on Sept. 29, came away with a 20-0 win over Foxborough (3-2), Friday night in Stoughton.
Photos in the media gallery by Justin Braga *** Foxborough running back Kiivone Howard had three touchdowns in every game so far this season, for a total of 12 scores in four contests. That trend stopped Friday night. While Howard picked up more than 100-yards on the ground against Stoughton, he was kept out of the end zone, as was the rest of the Foxborough team, with the Black Knights shutting out the Warriors. The Stoughton High football team's 20-0 win capped an emotional week for the Black Knights. Senior lineman David Wade, 17, died last Saturday, Sept. 29 after being accidentally shot. Just eight hours prior to the start of Friday's game, Wade's teammates attended his funeral. But thanks to jumping out to an early lead and coming up…
