FOXBORO — Milton’s first Super Bowl championship will without end be memorable.
Patrick Miller threw for 4 touchdowns whereas Harrison Hinckle corralled a pick-six and a landing reception as Milton claimed its first Super Bowl title with a 42-21 win over Walpole within the Div. 3 title sport on Thursday evening at Gillette Stadium.
The win by Milton (9-4) avenged a defeat by the hands of Walpole throughout the common season.
“I think our league and our non-conference schedule prepared us for this,” Milton coach Steve Dembowski stated. “None of these guys are scholarship kids, they just love each other. It’s a testament to our kids and our coaching staff.”
In nearly a mirror picture of their common season battle, Walpole (9-4) jumped on prime of Milton 14-0 to start the sport courtesy of a one-yard landing run by Logan Keyes and a 68-yard landing reception from Kamari Hughes. From that time on it was all Wildcats.
Ronan Sammon (6 receptions, 75 yards, 2 touchdowns) acquired Milton on the board with an 11-yard landing reception. Then, after Ben Caledonia recovered a Walpole fumble, William Renz scored from 4 yards out to tie the sport. Milton’s offense continued to remain on fireplace on its ensuing drive because the Wildcats went on a 12-play, 67 yard drive capped off by a Sammon 24-yard landing reception to take a 21-14 lead.
Harrison Hinckle then got here by with the important thing play of the evening, intercepting a tipped go and returning it 42 yards for a rating to make 28 unanswered factors and provides Milton a 28-14 benefit on the half.
“Our guys started to catch up to (Walpole’s) scheme,” Dembowski stated. “We got some tipped passes, some deflections, and then we got some pressure. The kids played hard and the defensive game plan really came together when we got the lead.”
Milton extinguished any hopes of a Walpole comeback within the second half. AJ Cicerone intercepted Walpole’s Noah Mackenzie to finish a promising Timberwolves drive and Hinckle corralled Miller’s fourth landing reception of the evening to provide Milton a commanding 35-14 lead.
