Nipmuc Falls to Scituate in D5 Super Bowl

The Nipmuc High School football team came out on the wrong end of a 35-14 decision against Scituate in its first ever trip to a state Super Bowl, but Warriors' head coach Shawn Hill was proud of the way his team was able to compete against a bigger school. "They are a great team, an outstanding team, and we have them all we had," Hill said. "We are the smallest team in Division 5 among public schools, but we did
a great job. I am proud of our kids, they never quit and never gave up. What else can you ask for?" Anchored by a high-powered offense, Scituate raced out to a 21-0 lead before the Warriors were able to get on the board. Nipmuc junior quarterback Judah Dishington connected with senior Matt Richards for a 26-yard touchdown. Nipmuc faked the extra point, with Nate Gould and Richards instead connecting for the 2-point conversion. The Sailors scored twice more to make it 35-8 before Dishington hit Samuel Hilton for Nipmuc's second touchdown of the game. The loss brought the Warriors' campaign to an end with a 10-2 record.
Nipmuc's captains, Richards, Hilton, Tom Chester and Preston Doherty led the team throughout the season, Hill said. Bretton Loftus came on strong in a leadership role as the season progressed, the coach added, and juniors Richie Broni and Nate Gould established themselves as leaders heading into next year.
Winning has become commonplace for Nipmuc, despite the fact that the football program has only been around for 15 seasons. The Warriors put together three straight Central Mass. championships and advanced to the Super Bowl for the first time in program history. Hill said his team has a chance to continue to be competitive in the district in 2019. "Our kids work hard and they know how to work, they understand what they have to do in order to be good," Hill said. "If they continue to do that, we should have some more running seasons coming up."
Nipmuc's season included a bounce back playoff win against Northbridge after losing to the Rams earlier in the year. The Warriors' defense, a hallmark of the program in recent years, allowed just 28 postseason points before running into Scituate in the title tilt.
"We had a great year," Hill said. "We will see what happens next year."
