Sean Asnes runs for 159 yards and 3 touchdowns as the Eagles spoil Senior Night for the Foxborough Warriors.
Up and down the Foxborough sideline Friday night was pure shock. Sharon was never the type of team to put up a fight or to be a threat, but on this night things were different. From the opening kick to the final whistle, it was evident who was the better team and this time it wasn't Foxborough. “I’ll make it simple. They (Sharon) outplayed us and they deserved to win the game,” said Foxborough coach Jack Martinelli. The Sharon Eagles upset the Foxborough Warriors 21-7 on Senior Night to get their first win over Foxborough since 1998. After forcing a quick three and out, the Eagles got the ball and quickly went to work. Sean Asnes capped off a 12 play drive with a two yard rush for a touchdown and the opening score of the game with 4:10 …

With two games remaining in the season, the division is still up for grabs.
With nine weeks down and two weeks remaining, Hockomock League football is far from over. And, for the first time ever, two teams from the league will advance to the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs. While Mansfield, King Philip and North Attleboro battle for top honors in the Kelley-Rex "big school" division, the fate of the Davenport "small school" Division rests in the hands of the Stoughton Black Knights.

It was a busy week in Foxborough. Check out the area's top stories.
It was an eventful week in Foxborough with a meeting of the Board of Selectmen, Halloween events, and a big win for Foxborough football. Here is a rundown of what you may have missed:
The Warrior defense cause 7 turnovers and got 316 total yards rushing in an upset win over the Townies.
Very few in Foxborough knew what to expect against the East Providence Townies. It was known that they were a 6-1 team in Rhode Island's Divsion 1, but it is tough to plan for an opponent that is rarely seen. 7 turnovers later, it was apparent that the Warriors had exceeded any expectations going into the game. “That’s a credit to the kids. When you really don’t know your opponent you go out and do what you’re capable of doing yourself,” said Foxboro coach Jack Martinelli. Forcing turnovers almost anytime the Townies threatened to score, the Warriors scored a big upset with a 26-0 win. The Warriors set the tone early with a 7-play drive that saw the Warriors march 65 yards down the field. Warriors QB Nick Sestito ended the drive with a 17-…

9 points from the defense and 29 points through the first 3 quarter was enough from Foxborough to hold off a 4th quarter comeback by the Panthers.
Anytime the Warriors go against a school twice as big as them it’s a challenge. Getting a win is extra challenging. It can also be challenging when it looks like your team may be a one half team. “Looks like we’re a first half club and not a second half club. We’re gonna have to work on that somehow,” said Foxboro coach Jack Martinelli. Holding off a Franklin comeback in fourth quarter after a strong first half, the Warriors got away with a 29-21 win over the Panthers. Already on the board with a safety that was the result of a botched Franklin punt; The Warriors went to work with their two star running backs Jeff McPherson and Kiivone Howard. Marching 58 yards down the field, Howard scored on a simple 2-yard run to put the Warriors up 9-…
