KP TAKES HOCKOMOCK KELLEY-REX TITLE & IMPROVES RECORD TO 20-0
It was the last regular season game before the playoffs and KP beat Taunton 35 - 7 to secure the Hockomock Kelley-Rex Title, the #1 seed in Division 2 South and extend the winning streak to 20 -0! What a night!
The Sun Chronicle said it best -- "Senior Andrew Dittrich “stole” the show for the Kelley-Rex Division champion King Philip Regional High football team Friday." Dittrich had his first pick 6 of the game to end Taunton's first possession of the game and grabbed another one on the goal line in the 4th quarter running it back the length of the field. He also intercepted another in their end zone.
Senior Quarterback Brendon Lydon completed 13 of 20 passes for 190 yards with touchdown passes to tight ends Jack Piller (15 yards) and Dylan Leonard (25 yards). Shane Frommer scored on a 10-yard run in the first quarter. Sophomore Cole Baker nailed all five PAT kicks.
The boys continue to prove day in and out that hard work does indeed pay-off:
Hockmock Kelley - Rex Champs 5 of the last 7 years!
#1 Seed in Division 2 South last 3 out of 4 years!
Longest current winning streak in the state 20 - 0!
Playoffs start next Friday night as the #1 seed Warriors take on #8 seed Barnstable in Division 2 South match-up, at home. The #1 seed ranking gives KP home field advantage throughout the playoffs. #bethere
It was a battle to the bitter end but the King Philip Warriors pulled out a big win over Franklin, 17 -14. The Warriors trailed 14 - 7 since before the half until Lydon threw a 31 - yard TD pass to Madden to tie it up with 4 minutes left in the game. On their next possession KP grinded out a drive downfield to the 2 yard line and Cole Baker kicked a field goal to win the game 17 -14, leaving no time left on the clock!!
KP is now 5 - 0 for the season and increased their winning streak to 18 - 0!
It was a rare Thursday Night game and oh what a game it was!! Unbeaten King Philip Warriors battled against the unbeaten Mansfield Hornets last night and WON! Mansfield dominated much of the first half and then captain Shane Frommer came up with a game changing pick 6 at the 4 yard line followed by a 96 yard run to end the half 7-10, instead of 17-0. King Philip came out and dominated the second half with 21 unanswered points.
A great all around team effort with 224 yards of offense (111 passing, 113 rushing) and 4 defensive sacks! KP is now 4 - 0 for the season and currently holds the longest active win streak in the state at 17 - 0.
It was a beautiful night for the home opener! The Warriors took on the always tough North Attleboro Red Rocketeers and came up with a 24 - 14 win.
Senior quarterback Brendan Lydon #12 threw for 143 yards & 2 touchdowns, senior Shane Frommer #25 racked up 101 yards and a 58-yard touchdown on 16 carries, sophomore Cole Baker #37 hit a 25-yard field goal, plus the defense came to play, with 5 sacks and picked off a pair of passes.
