FOXBOROUGH, MA – Immediately from the start of this particular contest, it was quite certain that Duxbury High School was going to win their second Division II Super Bowl in two years, as the Dragons scored five touchdowns in a span of 40-minutes and defeated the Tewksbury High School Redmen, 35-0.
“We always want to start fast and we were able to do that today,” said Duxbury head coach David Maimaron.
Senior quarterback Matt O’Keefe [135 yards, 3TDs, and 2INTs) led the passing attack, while junior Jon Hurwitz recorded 75 yards on seven carries and two scores.
The Dragons defense recorded three turnovers, and yielded 106 yards, (56 rushing, 50 passing), which certainly made their coaching staff quite pleased.
Duxbury has now won two Division II Super Bowls in a span of two-years.
The Defense That Never Quits
Holding the Redmen to only 106 yards of total offense, the Dragons defense did everything they could to make life miserable for anyone who was sporting a white jersey on Saturday.
“They are the best defense in the state. They almost guarantee a shutout every game. They just do their jobs,” said O’Keefe, when asked to describe his team’s defense.
Forcing three turnovers (one interception, two fumbles) hurt the Redman’s offense, as well as their chances to gain any sort of momentum.
It’s a good time to be apart of the Dragons’ football program. With the win, Duxbury has now won their second title in a row and their third in the past four years. The win also marks the Dragons 26th consecutive victory too.
