BRIDGEWATER — They call them the triplets. Duxbury’s high-powered offense is led by three seniors — quarterback Bobby Maimaron, running back Devin DeMeritt, and wide receiver Ryan Reagan.
The three haven’t played together in a game that counted in a full calendar year. But you couldn’t tell in Bridgewater on Friday night.
The triplets had a hand in each Dragon touchdown as No. 3 Duxbury toppled No. 16 Bridgewater-Raynham, 42-21.
Maimaron was 15 of 20 through the air with 249 yards and three touchdowns, two to Reagan. He also scampered for 81 yards on four rushes.
But it was DeMeritt who got across the line first. After tearing his ACL in a preseason game last year, DeMeritt plunged in from 2 yards for the Dragons’ first score. The score capped a 10-play, 82-yard drive.
DeMeritt finished with three rushing touchdowns on 57 yards and 13 carries. He also caught four balls for 51 yards.
On Bridgewater-Raynham’s first play from scrimmage, running back Shawn Noel took a sweep to the left 70 yards for the score.
Maimaron and company answered with an eight-play, 68-yard charge that ended with Maimaron’s first touchdown pass of the season, a 19-yarder to 6-foot-4-inch Reagan in the front of the end zone.
The senior wideout hauled in his second touchdown to make it 28-7 on an 80-yard seam route up the middle.
“They’ve been playing together a long time,” said Duxbury coach Dave Maimaron of his triple-threat offense. “All three of them are just dialed in. It makes it easier to call plays.”
The Duxbury defense held B-R to 113 yards, including the touchdown run.
Duxbury reeled off 28 unanswered points to take a 35-7 lead into halftime. Duxbury capped its scoring with a 9-yard pass to senior James Miele.

Bridgewater-Raynham, which was without coach Dan Buron due to a one-game suspension for inappropriate language, got two fourth-quarter scores from Devante Greaves to pull within 42-21.
