Milford Football Wraps Up Season

The Milford High football team finished the 2012 season with yesterday's annual Thanksgiving Day rivalry against Shrewsbury. The Scarlet Hawks brought a 2-8 record and a five game losing streak into the Turkey Day tilt, having dropped a 41-39 shootout to St. John's two weeks ago.
Senior running back Thomas Hyholt ran for four touchdowns in the overtime loss, and has rushed for 1,048 yards and 12 scores on the season. He has averaged just under-six yards per carry as one of the main driving forces of the Milford offense. Mike Tarolli added a 60-yard interception return for a touchdown in the game against the Pioneers and Domenic Cozier ran it in from two yards out in the overtime to give Milford a brief lead. St. John's was able to answer with a score and a two-point conversion to secure the victory.
Shrewsbury entered yesterday's game with a three game winning streak and an 8-2 overall record, but the Thanksgiving Day game is always about more than the final score. It's a final chance for seniors on both sides to play a regular season game and, for Milford, a final game on the home field. It's also a game marked by the return of many alumni to the area for the holiday and a pseudo-reunion in the stands and on the grass surrounding the field.
It's also one of the great traditions in Massachusetts High School sports. As the state prepares for a new football play-off, there is a growing concern that the Thanksgiving Day rivalries may be diminished if teams are in the hunt for state championships and unwilling to play starters for fear of injury before the post season games. We won't know how the new system will affect late season games until we see it in action, but most players, coaches, and fans hope the Thanksgiving Day games will retain their importance, both on and off the field.
