Third-ranked Duxbury extended its winning streak to 37 games with a 35-14 victory over Marshfield Thursday morning.
The last time the Green Dragons lost was to Marshfield — in 2009. Quarterback Sean McCarthy made sure that didn’t happen again as he led his team to its fifth consecutive Patriot (Keenan) title.
McCarthy threw two touchdown passes to Joe Guilfoile, a 13-yarder and an 18-yarder, to give Duxbury a 14-7 lead at the half.
The Green Dragons’ offense exploded in the third, scoring 21 straight points, including a 50-yard pass from McCarthy to Wes Quinzani, to secure Duxbury’s 11th win of the season.
Senior running back Jon Hurvitz added a 30-yard touchdown run in the third quarter.
“It was great,” said coach Dave Maimaron. “Winning on Thanksgiving is huge for the players and the town.”
The Rams finished a winless season.
Duxbury leads the Thanksgiving Day series against Marshfield, 14-12-2.
Duxbury, which is coming off back-to-back Super Bowl titles, is just a couple of wins from capturing its third consecutive championship.
