Dragons Football Gives Strong Performance at Home Beating of Whitman Hanson
Article by Matthew P.
The DHS Dragons defeated the Whitman-Hanson Panthers 23-9 on September 22, by strong defensive and solid offensive play. The Dragons, coming off a blowout win against Barnstable, continued the momentum by defeating the undefeated Panthers in Duxbury last friday.
In an interview with Trevor Hass Dave Maimaron said, “I don’t know if anyone’s going to beat Whitman-Hanson in the league, so if we want to be league champs we have to do it.”
The Dragons did exactly that with two explosive touchdown receptions by Sophomore Will P., a bouldering run by Frankie T, and strong defensive play that resulted in a safety and an interception.
“We were very prepared for the game, and we got a crucial league win,” said Sophomore Quarterback Shamus J.
When describing Prouty’s catches Junior Defensive End Hayden S. said, “Since he’s a sophomore the catches look very good on his record and that he has a future ahead of him.”
“We are getting better every week,” said strength Coach Ferreira. “Whitman Hanson had many players who played on both offense and defense who hung with us conditioning wise and since almost none of our players play both ways we need to work on our conditioning.”
Some spectators may have noticed the stickers with the letters DG on them stuck to all of the Duxbury Football players helmets. These letters are the initials of David Gardner, a father of one of the players on the Duxbury Football team. David will be remembered as a great friend and a even better father and the Duxbury Football team will be wearing the DG stickers to honor David and to show support for his family.
