Abra Cadabra

What’s more fun that the start of high school football season? Nothing, and we can’t wait for the Rebels to open the season against the Marblehead Magicians at SSgt. Christopher Piper Field, on Friday, September 9, 2016. 

Borrowing some lyrics from the old Steve Miller song, the Rebels Defense will be heard as they converge to sack the Magician quarterback time and time again: “Abra-abra-cadabra, I want to reach out and grab ya, Abra-abra-cadabra, Abracadabra” {Sorry, that’s really bad, even for this site!} Nevertheless, Coach Greener assesses the admittedly young Rebels this way, “These kids are going to hit you hard and leave it all out on the field.”

The Black Nights Shall Attacketh At Dusk!

The Walpole Rebels earned a first round playoff home game with its hard fought and well earned 5-2 record. But the team we drew as a first-round opponent will be anything but a walk in the park, as the 4-3  Stoughton Black Knights are set to invade the friendly confines of Turco Field on Friday night at 7:00 p.m.  Thanks to the new playoff system, Stoughton is another team we haven’t seen much of in the past, and other than Town Spa Pizza and a pretty decent Army-Navy store in the center of town, we don’t know that much about Stoughton at all! But seriously, the Black Knights will crusade in from the Hockomock League, so the Rebs better have their chinstraps buckled, because Stoughton is an “old-school”  (i.e., “smashmouth”) Hockomock League football team. “Might be the best No. 4 vs. No. 5 seed matchup in any district in the state this year,” according to Scott Barboza of ESPNBoston!

Football Game or Track Meet?

Walpole travels to Milton this Friday night, for what promises to be a crazy, wide-open, and potentially high scoring affair. Milton has a new coach, who says this about his talented senior quarterback, Mike Fallon: “There’s no doubt that Mike Fallon will set several, if not all single-season passing records here. That’s what happens when you change to an offense that throws the ball 30-plus times per game.” That’s very unusual for a high school football program. The Wildcats have scored 60 points in their first two games, a 34-24 win over common foe Needham, and a 26-20 win over Quincy.
