HHS leaves Rye blowin’ in the wind with 56-0 shutout
Playing in winds gusting up to 50 mph at Wiggins on Saturday, Nov. 14, Holyoke’s football team shut out the Rye Thunderbolts 56-0 to end the regular season.
The game was stalled 25 minutes when Dragon Kaison Kinnie was injured on the first play from scrimmage. He left the field by ambulance but was reportedly doing OK early this week.
From there, time flew as the Dragons pushed the game to the mercy rule halfway through the second quarter when they took a 42-0 lead with 5:39 remaining in the first half.
When a 40-point differential exists, a running clock is used for the remainder of the game. As a result, the clock didn’t stop for the last half of the second quarter and all of the second half, except for time-outs.
Quarterback Miles Sprague scored on five touchdown runs and three two-point conversions, while Tyson Mosenteen ran the ball for three touchdowns, and Joey Beckner added another two-point conversion for Holyoke’s 56-0 win.
Originally, Limon was on the Dragon schedule for Nov. 13, but when quarantining forced Limon out of actual play, the Dragons started looking for a replacement game.
It wasn’t until last Friday morning that plans for meeting Rye on the Wiggins field the next day were solidified.
