Because this Saturday, be prepared for an epic gridiron showdown between the Cohasset Skippers and the St. Mary’s Spartans. This high powered offensive matchup includes the 5-2 (3-0 in playoffs) Skippers led by captains Matt Lund(7) and Jackson Fitzgerald(88); taking on the 5-3 (3-0 in  the playoffs).They will be taking on the St. Mary’s Spartans of Lynn.

This will be a clash of two high powered offenses. The Skippers elusive offense posted a 5-2 regular season record (8-2 including postseason) which has been led by senior captains Matt Lund (7) and Jackson Fitzgerald (88). The Spartan’s are coming off a 5-3 regular season record, while also adding three wins in the playoffs. This matchup is lining up to be a head to head showdown featuring two of the greatest masterminds in all of Divison 7 Massachusetts football with Spartans coach Sean Driscoll and our beloved Coach A.

The spartans played a mediocre schedule this season, knocking off Cardinal Spellman, Arlington Catholic and Millis. Meanwhile, the Skippers just fresh off of back to back away wins aganist Mashpee (snapping their 28 game win streak) and an Abington team who had beat them in their previous game in the regular season. Cohasset pulled off the upset aganist Abington 33-16. St. Mary’s came away with a big win against Nashoba Valley Tech in a 39-14 game at a neutral location last Friday night. The stakes are high here as these two teams are both playing for a chance to go to Gillette Stadium and play for a state championship.

Everyone better show up and support your Skippers!
