The Hingham High freshmen football team pulled out a 27-20 win over Quincy on Saturday.
Reid Roberts gave Hingham a quick lead when he recovered his own football in the end zone.
Quincy responded with three touchdowns, including a 70-yard run, to take a 20-8 lead.
Cooper Estes and Patrick Petrillo ran well to help set up Roberts for his second score of the day.
Michael Rizzo intercepted a Quincy pass to keep the Presidents off the board before half.
Liam Collins led a defensive effort which kept Quincy off the board in the second half.
Quarter Joe Sylvester, who was 7-for-8 passing, scored a touchdown run to give Hingham the lead.
Estes seal the win with a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Matt Lahiff played well on offense and had a strong day punting.
“This was a character-building win for us,” said Hingham coach Rich Terres. “To come back from being down 20-8 against a tough, previously undefeated Quincy team, was a real accomplishment for the boys.”
The Harbormen have a chance to grab another win against Whitman-Hanson on the Union Street Turf at 10 a.m. on Saturday.
Fourth grade varsity
The rainy weather conditions made for a tough defensive battle, as Hingham played to a 0-0 tie in overtime with Raynham.
With the weather grounding Hingham’s passing game, they turned to their rushing attack behind the blocking of Leopold Kuehberger, Matt Griffin, Liam Lynch, Mac Corey and Breece Achille.
Running backs Peter Bourque, Chase Beighley and Jack Daley ran for several first downs on the afternoon.
The defense was led by Will Haggerty and Clayton Bellows on the corners, and Eli Melendes, Mat Griffin, Charlie Shape and Mac Corey stopping the Raynham running backs for losses.
In overtime, both teams fell a yard short of scoring to end in a hard-fought tie.
Fourth grade JV
Hingham defeated Marshfield, 14-0, behind the blocking of Mark Donlan, Nico Cicerone, Cavan Nicholas, Lachlan Knies, Gavin Fabella and Tanner Burns.
Quarterback Derek Ogar started things off with a 20-yard pass and then Will Haggerty opened the scoring with a 10-yard touchdown pass to Charlie Peak.
Cole Riordan followed with a touchdown run and Haggerty threw over the middle to Cavan Nicholas for the 2-point conversion to make the score 14-0.
The defense shut down Marshfield all afternoon with sacks by Chase Born, Nicholas and crushing tackles by Ned Buckley, Myles Melanson and Matthew Radulski to preserve the shutout.
The fourth graders look to remain unbeaten on Sunday against Hanover.
