Will the Senators ever win on the Thanksgiving game against hometown rivals, Norwalk High School?
After last weeks blow out against the St. Joseph Cadets' (55-6) and being held to only six points for the third week in the row, the Senators' look for a way to respond to not being able to score more than two touchdowns.
The Senators' will face off against the Norwalk Bears' on Thanksgiving Day, November 22, 2018, at 10:30 a.m. This will be the biggest game that the Senators' look forward to playing all season.
The Bears' have an advantage having two more wins than the Senators' being (4-5) as the Senators' have a record of (2-7).
Unfortunately, the Bears' have beat the Senators' for the last five years in a row and McMahon looks to make history for their school.
The Bears' have beaten the East Lyme Vikings', Westhill Vikings', Trumbull Eagles', and Trinity Catholic.
The Senators' have beaten the Stamford Black Knights' and the Central Hilltoppers'.
Even though the Senators' have only had six points in the last three games, their offense is getting better each week as they're starting to move the ball better and make bigger plays. If they continue to work hard, the Bears' are going to be in trouble.
On the Bears' side of the ball, they are working on picking up their defensive side because on a season average they let over 25 points per game.
On the other hand, their offense has kept them in a lot of times with a season average of 26 points per game and each time they win they put up over 40 points.
Junior captain, Patrick Coulter, says, “I feel like it's going to be a shootout this game.”
It seems the Senators are staying humble for the big game.
Senior captain Thaddeus Burrus (‘19), said, “I think we have the advantage up front on both sides of the line. Our defense is better and they have a better offense so it will come down to who wants it more.”
