Thanksgiving was unkind to the Hopkinton High School football team, as the Hillers suffered a 35-0 loss to rival Ashland.
Hopkinton, which trailed 21-0 at the half, struggled to slow down Ashland’s rushing game. The Clockers ran for well over 300 yards on almost 50 carries.
The Hillers’ best chance to score came in the first quarter. After James Marcinowski recovered a fumble at the Ashland 33, Hopkinton marched to the 1-yard line. However, the drive ended there.
Both teams finished the season with a record of 5-6.
