The days become a bit colder as the crisp Autumn weather takes over the town. The sun is going down earlier and earlier every day. Meanwhile, the Monomoy football team is practicing every day, rain or shine. Like every year, this particular Monomoy team is different than the previous ones. The roster is filled with young players with little to no experience. This also brings new personalities to the team. The chemistry and identity of a team is a crucial part to the group’s success. All eyes are on the team to see if an identity can sprout this season as the kids start to mesh into one unit.

Coming off a year where the team produced the best record (7-4) in program history and a playoff berth, the shoes to fill are big. The 2018 Sharks football team has a record of 2-3 through 5 games. The margin of error is very small. With the biggest game of the season taking place under the Friday night lights (Oct. 12), questions about the outcome of the season would be answered. The boys played West Bridgewater. Monomoy was 1-1 in league play while West Bridgewater was 0-1. The winner would have a shot at the playoffs. The loser will need some help from other teams if playoffs are still in their aspirations. Monomoy had tough losses from Nauset and Nantucket and an overtime heartbreaker against Blue Hills.

As the sun went down on Friday night, we expected a big crowd for the biggest homecoming game the school has hosted, and we got it. Unfortunately, the outcome of the night was not in our favor. West Bridgewater tucked away Monomoy 36-6 in a pretty one-sided game. The Sharks looked good moving the ball up and down the field, but couldn’t punch it in the endzone. In Monomoy’s defense, the two senior captains, Kyle Charlot and Isaac Hart, were both out hurt. This was a big hit to both the offense and defense. Monomoy was able to find its way to a touchdown with a 5 yard scamper from Mark Pawlina late in the 2nd quarter. The only problem was the harsh task of slowing down West Bridgewater’s star running back and former MVP, Christian Keeling.

Next up for the Sharks is Keefe Tech. The games following are still TBA. Let’s hope the team can get fully healthy and ready to get back to their winning ways after their 2-4 start.
