Wareham Football wins first game of the season
It was the first real test of the season for the Wareham football team on Friday as they faced off against their traditional rivals, the Bourne Canalmen and won 24-6.
Although the Vikings did not score points in the first half, they picked up speed in the second. Wareham football coach Fran Cass described the game as a “Mexican standoff,” in which both teams “played pretty poorly.” Nevertheless, the Vikings “made adjustments and did it right psychologically in the second half.”
Coach Cass believes the team’s strong defense greatly contributed to the victory.
“During the first half we played poorly on offense and our defense kept us in the ball game. I think we had three or four turnovers so the defense played very well,” said Cass.
The next home game is scheduled for October 4 against Seekonk High School.
