(Oct. 25, 2012)  Nantucket and Upper Cape each scored three touchdowns in Saturday’s Homecoming game, but it was the extra-point game that was the difference in the Rams’ 22-19 victory. Upper Cape went two-for-three on two-point conversions while Nantucket went one-for-three kicking extra points.


With the win, the Rams took control of the Mayflower Small League and Nantucket no longer controls its own destiny in its quest to return to the Div. 5 Super Bowl. The Whalers (3-4, 1-1 Mayflower Small) need to win the remainder of their league games and hope the undefeated Rams drop two of their remaining three to return to the postseason.


“We’ve lost a (league) game and now we’re chasing,” head coach Bill Manchester said. “We need Upper Cape to lose two games if we’re going to make it back.”
