PLAYOFF UPDATE-Sharon Football Going To Super Bowl
In a defensive thriller, the Sharon High football team defeated Pembroke, 7-6, at Braintree High in the Division 3 playoffs.
The Sharon High football team is going to the Division 3 Super Bowl.
The Eagles defeated Pembroke, 7-6, Tuesday night in the Division 3 playoffs at Braintree High and will now play Wayland in the Division 3 Super Bowl Saturday. Sharon High head coach Dave Morse said he heard it was going to be Bentley University at 10 a.m.
"We're very happy with that," said Morse on WATD radio of going to the Super Bowl. "It's just another piece of the puzzle.
"It came down to what team wasn't going to make a mistake."
It turned defensive back all night long.
Pembroke score with 1:09 left in the game. Colon Clafin caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Cory Brandon, making the score, 7-6.
Titan head coach Bob Bancroft elected to go for the 2-point conversion, but the pass fail incomplete. Sharon was able to get the ball back and run out the clock.
Pembroke elected to go for the two-point conversion, because they were having trouble with extra-points.
"We didn't feel confident," said Bancroft on WATD radio, whose team was 3 for 7 in extra-point. "Our kicker got hurt (and) it didn't make sense."
After a scoreless first half, Sharon's Sean Asnes scored on a four-yard run to give Sharon at 7-0 lead over Pembroke after three quarter after the Eagles recovered a fumbled punt.
