End to HHS Football Season

The Hingham High football team wrapped up their season this past Thursday, November 23rd, at 10:00 with their annual Thanksgiving game against Scituate High School. It was a beautiful day for the game, with clear skies and temperatures around 50 degrees. 

Each year, the Thanksgiving game alternates home or away; this year, the Hingham Harbormen had the home-field advantage. However, despite their hard work, the team unfortunately came up short with a 13-10 loss. 

Of course, since this was the seniors’ very last game, many of them hoped for a win. However, although they did not achieve that goal, the team certainly gave it their all and came fairly close to beating Scituate. Scituate is a very strong team that is actually entering the Superbowl, so the mere fact that the Harbormen almost pulled through with a win is certainly an accomplishment on its own.

In spite of the fact that the Hingham Habormen did not come out on top, the team still left with a positive outlook. Senior Colin Hay expressed, “We had some really big-time plays this game. Jack Nicholas came up big with a few interruptions that kept us in the game. If a few more calls went our way we might’ve pulled it out.”

The good spirits did not end there, as several of the players felt the loss was irrelevant considering how hard their team has worked. For example, Logan Price, a defensive senior, commented, “The loss was tough for sure, but at the end of the day It’s not about the wins and losses. It’s more about the memories this team has all created over the past year, and I’m definitely thankful that I’ll always have those.”

Considering the fact that this was the season’s last game, the outlook the Harbormen had on the loss is outstanding. Not to mention, this year’s senior class consisted of nineteen seniors, making the conclusion of this season that much more emotional. 

At the end of the day, despite their loss, the 2023 Hingham Harbormen football team has most definitely created a powerful bond that each and every one of them will have forever.
