Doherty to Host Shepherd Hill in the GoLocal Game of the Week

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

 

Doherty's Noah Robinson has been one of the best players in Central Mass on both offense and defense this year.

Shepherd Hill looks to avenge a previous loss to Doherty in the GoLocal Game of the Week, with a trip to the Division II Super Bowl on the line.

Shepherd Hill (9-2) at Doherty (9-2): 7 pm Friday at Foley Stadium

Why is it a must-see game?

Doherty came out on top when these two teams battled on November 9th, and Shepherd Hill would like nothing better than to pay the Highlanders back and earn their way to the Division II Super Bowl.

Doherty Offense vs Shepherd Hill Defense

The Highlanders have a three-headed offensive attack in quarterback Luke Brennan, running back Abdullah Webster and tight end Noah Robinson. This has led to a balanced attack for Doherty, as Webster has rushed for over 900 yards while Brennan has thrown for over 1,800 yards.

Chris Dutting leads a swarming defense for the Rams, who have held opponents below 15 points five times this season. Shepherd Hill has, however, been vulnerable against teams that run with power, and Doherty showed they could move the ball against the Rams in their first matchup.

Shepherd Hill Offense vs Doherty Defense

The Rams make no bones about it, they want to run the football. Led by Jake Gelb, the Rams have four different players with over 250 yards rushing this season. With a stable of capable backs and a strong offensive line, Shepherd Hill certainly has the personnel to execute its game plan.

Doherty, meanwhile, has a physical defense, led by Robinson, who has over 115 tackles this season, and junior Issac Yiadom. Shepherd Hill rushed for four touchdowns against the Highlanders the first time around, and it will be interesting to see what adjustments both teams make for this critical playoff game.

Be sure to check back after the game for full highlights in the sports section.
