(Nov. 1, 2012) For the second week in a row the Whalers equaled their conference rival in touchdowns but fell short on the scoreboard due to extra points. Nantucket lost to South Shore Voke 32-29 Saturday at home even though both teams scored four touchdowns in the game.
The loss mathematically eliminated Nantucket (3-5, 1-2 Mayflower Small) from Div. 5 Super Bowl contention, but the team still has the Island Cup game against Martha’s Vineyard to look forward to at the end of the season. Next up, however, is Holbrook/ Avon on the road Saturday.
“The Island Cup obviously looms as a huge goal for us. We knew going into this year we had to play more physical.The last two times we’ve played them, they’ve been close games but we just haven’t been as physical as we need to be,” head coach Bill Manchester said, noting that was one of the reasons the team played such a difficult non-conference schedule this year.
