Joe Taft – Veritas Sports Editor
The Rockland Bulldogs took on the Cohasset Skippers in the first game of the new football season.
They fell behind early, but the Dogs did not back down. They scored 28 unanswered points after going down in the first quarter to start the season off on the right foot with a win.
Senior running back John Goode found the end zone to tie the game at 7 with 2:51 to go in the first quarter. Goode ran for the one score and 50 yards.
Senior quarterback Matthew Dunn was finding success through the air on Friday night. He found junior tight-end Zach Sharland open in the end-zone for a nine yard touchdown.
Rockland led 21-7 after Dunn ran a 1-yarder right past the goal line for a score. Dunn finished the night 11-16 passing for 175 yards and 2 touchdowns, (one passing, one running).
Senior running back Noah Mazzilli ran for 47 yards. Junior Jon Barr ran for 72 yards, including a 52 yard touchdown run that ultimately pushed the score out of the reach of Cohasset.
Rockland takes on Abington this Friday at Veteran’s Memorial Stadium, as they look to start a winning streak. They will try to avenge the loss they suffered at home against the Green Wave last year.
FINAL: Rockland 28-Cohasset 7
