Kicker Who Missed Extra Point To Tie Makes Field Goal To Win, As Duxbury Edges Marshfield In Thanksgiving Rivalry

November 23, 2023

Duxbury (10-1) defeated Marshfield (9-3) in a dramatic 23-21 rivalry game on Thanksgiving Day.

Duxbury was down seven points in the third quarter, but scored a touchdown to almost tie it – only to have its placekicker, Gavin Hammond, miss the extra point.

But then that same placekicker kicked a 23-yard field goal with 7:19 left in the fourth quarter, to give Duxbury a 23-21 lead.

That kick won the game, as there was no more scoring.

Both South Shore high school football games are bound for the division Super Bowl championship games at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough – Duxbury in Division 4 and Marshfield in Division 2.
